A File Manager software tool is present in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels could provide more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use could make it more annoying and difficult for you to manage your site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Web Hosting

The feature-rich File Manager that comes with our shared web hosting solutions will make handling your web content as basic as handling files on your computer or laptop. You will be able to drag-and-drop files and folders not just in the account, but also straight from your laptop or computer, so you will no longer need an FTP client to upload content. Furthermore, the folder structure shall be kept, so files from separate folders shall not get mixed. You could also use right-click context menus and access various features. You will be able to set up and extract archives, to set up password-protected areas plus much more. If you want to edit files, you may do that through a number of editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you could choose the one which you need and feel most comfy working with.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated, though intuitive File Manager will give you total control over your content and you will not have any problems handling the files and folders you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a hosting service before. The options it is supplying are just a couple of clicks away, even the more complex ones like setting up a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. From right-click context menus, you will feel just as if you’re working on your own computer system. In addition, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both in the account and from your PC. With the latter alternative, you may upload content directly, which takes away the need for an FTP client.
