A File Manager software tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels could offer you more advanced features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use may make it more frustrating and challenging for you to manage your website content, especially if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Website Hosting
The feature-rich File Manager included with our website hosting
plans will make handling your information as basic as controlling files on your desktop computer or notebook. You'll be able to drag-and-drop folders and files not just inside the account, but also directly from your PC, so you will no longer require an FTP client to upload data. Furthermore, the folder structure will be kept, so files from different folders will not get mixed. You may also use right-click context menus and access various features. You shall be able to create and extract archives, to set up password-protected areas and much more. If you want to edit files, you could do that via a number of different editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you can select the one which you need and feel most comfortable working with.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our highly developed, though easy-to-work with File Manager will provide you with 100 % control over your content and you will not have any difficulties handling the folders and files which you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server
account, even though you may have never used a hosting service before. The options it's giving you are only a couple of mouse clicks away, even the more sophisticated ones like creating a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you'll feel just as if you’re working on your computer. Furthermore, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both within the account and from your notebook or computer. With the latter alternative, you can easily upload content directly, which takes away the need for any FTP client.
