All website hosting accounts are handled from a Control Panel 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 Internet hosting account and to complete basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there can be more complex functions too, like management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are simpler to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. As this is the main tool you shall employ to handle your files, it's important to check in advance what options it comes with and if it shall suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and can make managing your presence online more challenging.
File Manager in Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our custom Hepsia CP, will permit you to administer all of the files you upload to your hosting account without any difficulty. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can easily upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your Internet browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you can also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also included help articles and educational videos, that you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our advanced, albeit user-friendly File Manager provides you with complete control over your content and you won't have any difficulties managing the folders and files that you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even if you have never used a hosting service before. The options it is supplying are only a few mouse clicks away, even the more sophisticated ones like setting up a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. From right-click context menus, you will feel as if you’re working on your home PC. In addition, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both in the account and from your laptop or computer. With the latter option, you can easily upload content directly, which removes the need for an FTP client.
