What is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
A File Manager tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels could offer you more complex features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is not easy to use could make it more frustrating and hard for you to handle the website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is an integral part of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, will give you 100 % control over your web content and will eliminate the need of employing third-party apps. If you wish to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server
account, you shall only need to drag-and-drop it, because the File Manager supports uploads, so you will not have to use an FTP client anymore. You'll also be able to transfer files and folders in your account just as fast and their structure will be kept intact. If you'd like to change the permissions of any file, to create a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to modify a file using a plain text or an HTML editor, you'll simply need to use the right-click, since you can access these functions via right-click context menus - you’ll feel as if you’re working on your computer. To make managing your content much easier, you'll be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by size, name or last modified date.
