All hosting accounts are handled using a Control Panel and no matter the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which allows you to browse the files you have uploaded in the website hosting account and to execute simple operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the particular tool, there can be more advanced features as well, including control over permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are easier to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that's the main tool you'll use to control your files, it is essential to check in advance what options it comes with and if it'll suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and could make managing your online presence more difficult.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all the files you upload to your cloud hosting account without any difficulty. You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you can also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also provided help articles and instructional videos, which you may access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool will enable you to do virtually anything you need. It is a part of the Hepsia CP, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and besides the normal features like copying, deleting or renaming files, you'll be able to use right-click menus in order to access more advanced ones. With a couple of mouse clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to modify the UNIX permissions if a script-based app requires it or to modify the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. What is more, you will no longer need an FTP program to upload new content as you may just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
