All web hosting accounts are managed via a CP and whatever the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which allows you to look into the files you have uploaded in the website hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the particular tool, there can be more complex functions too, such as control over permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are easier to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Since this is the main tool that you will employ to control your files, it's essential 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 could make managing your online presence more complicated.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all of the files that you upload to your shared hosting account with ease. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you may also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up 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 – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also added help articles and video lessons, which you may access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool allows you to do virtually anything you require. It is a part of the Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and besides the regular features including copying, deleting or renaming files, you can use right-click menus in order to access more complex ones. With a few mouse clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to edit the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app needs it or to edit the content of any file using WYSIWYG editors, plain text and code. What is more, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content since you could simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your personal computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content that you upload.
