All hosting accounts are handled through a Control Panel and irrespective of the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files you have uploaded inside the Internet hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there may be more complex features also, like control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are simpler to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that this is the main tool you shall employ to control your files, it is important to check in advance what options it provides and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your online presence more challenging.
File Manager in Hosting
If you buy a hosting plan from our company, you may take advantage of a sophisticated File Manager tool, that's a part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It offers lots of functions and even traditional ones such as copying or moving files could be accessed from right-click context menus, which will make you feel as if you’re working with an application on your home computer. If you move entire folders, their structure will be kept intact, so you shall not have to be concerned about scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to loads of other advanced functions as well, so things like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area shall be just a click away. Furthermore, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, due to the fact that our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You could also use three different file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a plain text editor and a code editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will enable you to do practically anything you need. It's an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and besides the standard functions like renaming, copying or deleting files, you'll be able to use right-click menus so as to access more advanced ones. With a few clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to change the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app requires it or to change the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. What is more, you will no longer require an FTP program to upload new content because you can just drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, conserving the folder structure of the content that you upload.
