All hosting accounts are handled using a CP and regardless of the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files that you've uploaded in the website hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there could be more complex functions too, like control over permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are simpler to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that's the main tool that you'll employ to manage your files, it's important to check in advance what options it comes with and if it shall appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and could make managing your online presence more complicated.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared hosting account effortlessly. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can easily upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you can also access context menus with more advanced options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to edit the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also included help articles and instructional videos, that you can access from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool will permit you to do just about anything you need. It's part of the Hepsia CP, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the normal features such as renaming, copying or deleting files, you'll be able to use right-click menus so as to access more advanced ones. With several mouse clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to change the UNIX permissions if a script-based application requires it or to alter the content of any file using plain text, WYSIWYG editors and code. What's more, you will no longer need an FTP program to upload new content because you may just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your personal computer straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, saving the folder structure of the content you upload.
