All hosting accounts are handled from a CP and regardless of the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files which you have uploaded in the hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there may be more advanced functions also, such as control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that's the main tool that you'll use to control your files, it is crucial to check in advance what options it comes with and if it shall appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your presence online more difficult.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting through our company, you can take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that's a part of our Hepsia website hosting hosting CP. It provides a lot of capabilities and even standard ones like copying or moving files could be accessed from right-click context menus, that will make you feel like you’re using an application on your computer system. If you relocate whole folders, their structure will be kept unchanged, so you will not have to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to loads of other innovative capabilities as well, so stuff like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area shall be simply a click away. Also, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, considering that our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You could also use 3 different file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a code editor and a plain text editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will allow you to do virtually anything you want. It's part of the Hepsia CP, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the standard features such as copying, deleting or renaming files, you can use right-click menus in order to access more sophisticated ones. With a couple of mouse clicks, you will be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to edit the UNIX permissions if a script-based application needs it or to edit the content of any file using plain text, WYSIWYG editors and code. In addition, you shall no longer need an FTP program to upload new content as you could simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
