All web hosting accounts are handled via a CP and irrespective of the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which lets you look into the files that you have uploaded inside the web hosting account and to carry out simple operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there may be more advanced functions too, including management of permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are easier to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that that's the main tool you will use to control your files, it is critical to check in advance what options it includes and if it will suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and could make managing your online presence more challenging.
File Manager in Shared Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all the files you upload to your shared website hosting account effortlessly. You can move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can easily upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you could also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to edit the content with various editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also provided help articles and video lessons, which you can access from the File Manager to get more information about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool will enable you to do practically anything you require. It's part of the Hepsia CP, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and besides the standard features including copying, deleting or renaming files, you'll be able to use right-click menus so as to access more advanced ones. With several mouse clicks, you will be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to modify the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app requires it or to modify the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. Also, you shall no longer need an FTP program to upload new content given that you may simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your personal computer straight to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content that you upload.
