All web hosting accounts are handled using a CP and no matter the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files that you've uploaded in the website hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there may be more advanced features too, such as management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that is the primary tool you will employ to manage 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 may be a burden and will make managing your online presence more difficult.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
If you purchase a Linux cloud hosting plan from our company, you may take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that is a part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It comes with lots of features and even regular ones like copying and moving files can be accessed through right-click context menus, which will make you feel as if you’re using an application on your home PC. If you relocate whole folders, their structure will be kept unchanged, so you shall not have to be concerned about scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to many other advanced capabilities also, so things like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area shall be only a click away. What's more, you won't need a third-party FTP program to upload content, as our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can even use 3 separate file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a code editor and a plain text editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool allows you to do just about anything you require. It's part of the Hepsia CP, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the standard functions such as copying, deleting or renaming files, you shall be able to use right-click menus in order to access more sophisticated ones. With a few clicks, you will be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to modify the UNIX permissions if a script-based app needs it or to edit the content of any file using WYSIWYG editors, plain text and code. Furthermore, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content since you can simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your pc directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, keeping the folder structure of the content that you upload.
