A File Manager software tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels may offer more complex features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use can make it more frustrating and challenging for you to handle the site content, especially if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all the files which you upload to your cloud web hosting account without any difficulty. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can easily upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you could also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to change the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also provided help articles and educational videos, that you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
