All website hosting accounts are managed via a CP and no matter the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files that you've uploaded inside the hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there may be more complex functions too, including management of permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are easier to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that that's the main tool you'll employ to manage your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it includes and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and can make managing your web presence more difficult.
File Manager in Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all of the files which you upload to your website hosting account effortlessly. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You may upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you could also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also added help articles and video lessons, which you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will enable you to do virtually anything you require. It is a part of the Hepsia CP, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and in addition to the regular functions like copying, deleting or renaming files, you'll be able to use right-click menus so as to access more advanced ones. With a few clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to change the UNIX permissions if a script-based app requires it or to edit the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. What is more, you'll no longer require an FTP program to upload new content since you can simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your pc directly to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, keeping the folder structure of the content which you upload.
