All hosting accounts are managed from a Control Panel and no matter the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files that you have uploaded in the web hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there could be more complex functions as well, such as control over permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are easier to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that is the main tool that you will employ to control your files, it is crucial to check in advance what options it offers and if it shall work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and will make managing your presence online more complicated.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you order a cloud hosting through our company, you may take advantage of a sophisticated File Manager tool, that is a part of our Hepsia web hosting CP. It offers a lot of functions and even conventional ones like copying or moving files could be accessed through right-click context menus, which will make you feel as if you’re working with an app on your desktop computer. If you transfer whole folders, their structure will be kept whole, so you won't have to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to many other advanced functions as well, so things such as creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area shall be just a click away. Also, you won't need a third-party FTP program to upload content, since our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can even use three separate file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a plain text editor and a code editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool allows you to do virtually anything you want. It's an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the standard features including renaming, copying or deleting files, you can use right-click menus in order to access more advanced ones. With a couple of mouse clicks, you will be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to change the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app requires it or to alter the content of any file using WYSIWYG editors, plain text and code. Also, you shall no longer need an FTP program to upload new content because you could simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, keeping the folder structure of the content which you upload.
