All website hosting accounts are handled from a CP and no matter the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files that you've uploaded in the web hosting account and to execute simple operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there can be more advanced functions too, including management of permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are simpler to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that is the primary tool that you'll use to handle your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it includes and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and can make managing your presence online more difficult.
File Manager in Shared Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all of the files that you upload to your shared website hosting account with ease. You can move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you could also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to modify the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also included help articles and video tutorials, that you can access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our advanced, although intuitive File Manager offers you full control over your content and you'll not have any problems handling the files and folders you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even if you have never used an Internet hosting service before. The options it is offering are just several clicks away, even the more complex ones such as creating a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Via right-click context menus, you'll feel just as if you’re working on your home PC. Moreover, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both inside the account and from your PC. With the latter alternative, you can upload content directly, which eradicates the need for any FTP client.
