All web hosting accounts are managed from a CP and no matter the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which allows you to look at the files that you've uploaded inside the website hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there can be more advanced features as well, including control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are simpler to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. As this is the primary tool you shall use to manage your files, it is crucial to check in advance what options it includes and if it shall appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and can make managing your online presence harder.
File Manager in Shared Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared website hosting
account effortlessly. You could move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You could upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you may also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also included help articles and video tutorials, you can access from the File Manager to get more information about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our custom Hepsia web hosting CP, shall give you complete control over your web content and will eradicate the need of using third-party applications. If you'd like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server
account, you will simply need to drag-and-drop it, because the File Manager supports uploads, so you will not need to use an FTP client anymore. You shall also be able to transfer folders and files in the account just as fast and their structure will be kept unchanged. If you want to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain or a subdomain or to modify a file with a plain text or an HTML editor, you will only have to use the right-click, because you could access all these features using right-click context menus - you’ll feel like you’re working on your personal computer. To make handling your content that much easier, you shall be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by size, name or last modified date.
