A File Manager tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels could offer you more complex functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use may make it more frustrating and difficult for you to control your website content, especially if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's a part of our custom Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all of the files which you upload to your cloud hosting account easily. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you could also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to modify the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also added help articles and video tutorials, that you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
