All hosting accounts are handled via a CP and no matter the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you look into the files that you have uploaded in the hosting account and to execute simple operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there could be more advanced features too, such as control over permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are easier to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. As that is the main tool that you will employ to control your files, it's crucial to check in advance what options it includes and if it shall suit your needs, 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
If you purchase a shared hosting through our company, you could take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that is a part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It provides many functions and even regular ones like copying or moving files could be accessed from right-click context menus, which will make you feel like you’re working with an application on your home computer. If you relocate whole folders, their structure will be kept intact, so you will not need to be worried about scrambled files. The context menus will give you access to loads of other advanced features as well, so things such as creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be simply a mouse click away. Also, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, due to the fact that our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You could also use three separate file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a plain text editor and a code editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to benefit from our feature-rich File Manager. The tool is part of the custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel and is just as easy and user-friendly. It will only take a mouse click to set up, rename or delete a file or a folder inside your account and for your ease and comfort, you will be able to sort the content by name, size, type or last modified date. Because the File Manager supports drag-and-drop actions, you can swiftly move any content within the account, including folders, and their structure will be preserved. If you'd like to upload any content, you will no longer need an FTP program, as you could drag-and-drop the folders straight from your PC. The File Manager also comes with more complex features and you shall be able to modify file permissions, to work with archives and to edit files with plain text and HTML editors, which can easily be accessed through right-click context menus.
