All hosting accounts are handled using a CP and no matter the type of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which enables you to look at the files you have uploaded inside the website hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there may be more advanced functions as well, like management of permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are simpler to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that's the main tool you shall use to handle your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it comes with and if it shall work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and can make managing your presence online more complicated.
File Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The feature-rich File Manager included with our shared web hosting
packages will make managing your content as easy as handling files on your personal computer or notebook. You shall be able to drag-and-drop folders and files not just inside the account, but also directly from your computer, so you shall no longer need an FTP client to upload content. In addition, the folder structure shall be kept, so files from different folders will not get mixed. You can also use right-click context menus and access various functions. You'll be able to create and extract archives, to create password-protected areas plus much more. If you'd like to change files, you may do that through a number of different editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you may select the one that you need and feel most comfortable working with.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will allow you to do pretty much anything you require. It's an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all semi-dedicated server
accounts and besides the normal functions like renaming, copying or deleting files, you shall be able to use right-click menus to access more sophisticated ones. With several clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to edit the UNIX permissions in case a script-based application requires it or to modify the content of any file using WYSIWYG editors, plain text and code. In addition, you will no longer need an FTP program to upload new content since you can just drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
