All web hosting accounts are managed using a Control Panel and regardless of the type of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which allows you to look at the files that you have uploaded in the website hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there can be more advanced features too, including management of permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are easier to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. As that's the primary tool that you'll use to manage your files, it is crucial to check in advance what options it comes with and if it'll appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and could make managing your online presence more difficult.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all the files you upload to your shared hosting account easily. You may move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to modify the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also included help articles and instructional videos, that you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool will allow you to do practically anything you need. It is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the regular features like renaming, copying or deleting files, you can 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 change the UNIX permissions in case a script-based application needs it or to modify 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 because you could just drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your pc straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, conserving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
