A File Manager software tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can offer you more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's difficult to use can make it more annoying and difficult for you to manage the website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Website Hosting

If you get a Linux website hosting through our company, you may take advantage of a modern File Manager tool, which is a part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It comes with lots of features and even standard ones such as copying or moving files can be accessed using right-click context menus, that'll make you feel as if you’re using an app on your home computer. If you relocate entire folders, their structure shall be kept unchanged, so you won't need to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to a whole lot of other advanced functions as well, so stuff like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be just a click away. What's more, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, considering that our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You could also use three separate file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a plain text editor and a code editor.
