All website hosting accounts are managed from a CP and regardless of the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which allows you to browse the files which you have uploaded inside the hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the particular tool, there may be more complex features too, like control over permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are easier to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that this is the primary tool that you'll employ to manage your files, it is crucial to check in advance what options it offers and if it'll appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your presence online more challenging.

File Manager in Web Hosting

When you buy a Linux web hosting package from our company, you could take advantage of a sophisticated File Manager tool, that's part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It offers lots of functions and even regular ones including copying and moving files can be accessed from right-click context menus, which will make you feel like you’re using an application on your computer system. If you move entire folders, their structure will be kept unchanged, so you won't need to be worried about scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to a lot of other sophisticated features as well, so stuff like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area shall be only a mouse click away. What's more, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, considering that our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You can also use three separate file editors – a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced, albeit easy-to-work with File Manager will give you complete control over your content and you will not have any problems handling the folders and files you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used an Internet hosting service before. The options it is providing are no more than a couple of clicks away, even the more complex ones such as setting up a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, adjusting UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Via right-click context menus, you'll feel just as if you’re working on your own computer system. Also, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both within the account and from your computer. With the latter alternative, you could upload content directly, which removes the need for an FTP client.
