All hosting accounts are handled through a CP and irrespective of the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which allows you to look into the files you have uploaded in the website hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there may be more complex functions too, such as control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that this is the main tool that you'll employ to handle your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it provides and if it will suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and could make managing your online presence more complicated.
File Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all of the files that you upload to your shared web hosting account with ease. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through 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 have also provided help articles and instructional videos, which you may access from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our custom Hepsia website hosting CP, shall give you complete control over your data and will eradicate the need of employing third-party apps. If you would like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you shall only need to drag-and-drop it, since the File Manager supports uploads, so you will not have to employ an FTP client anymore. You will also be able to move folders and files inside the account just as fast and their structure will be kept undamaged. If you want to change the permissions of any file, to create a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to modify a file using a plain text or an HTML editor, you will only need to use the right-click, since you may access all these features through right-click context menus - you’ll feel like you’re working on your personal computer. To make managing your content even easier, you'll be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, size or name.
