A File Manager is a web-based interface that enables you to manage the files inside a website hosting account as an alternative to a third-party FTP program. Every File Manager tool supports a fundamental set of capabilities no matter the Internet hosting Control Panel it is a part of - renaming, deleting and moving files or whole folders along with all of the information in them, for instance. With regard to the specific CP, other functions could be supported too, such as changing file permissions, working with archives or modifying the content of a particular file. With an easy-to-use File Manager, you could easily control your files and your web presence in general, while a hard-to-use one can make controlling your content irritating, particularly if you have not used this type of a tool before.
File Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The feature-rich File Manager which comes with our shared web hosting plans will make managing your web content as simple as managing files on your personal computer or laptop. You will be able to drag-and-drop folders and files not just within the account, but also directly from your computer, so you will no longer require an FTP client to upload information. What is more, the folder structure will be maintained, so files from separate folders will not get mixed. You may also use right-click context menus and access different functions. You will be able to set up and extract archives, to create password-protected areas and much more. If you would like to modify files, you can do that through a number of different editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you can pick the one that you need and feel most comfortable working with.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our advanced, though easy-to-work with File Manager will give you total control over your content and you'll not have any difficulties managing the files and folders which you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a website hosting service before. The options it's offering are no more than several clicks away, even the more sophisticated ones including setting up a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, changing UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you'll feel as if you’re working on your home computer. Furthermore, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both within the account and from your computer. With the latter alternative, you may upload content directly, which eliminates the need for any FTP client.
