All website hosting accounts are handled via a CP and no matter the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which allows you to look into the files that you've uploaded inside the web hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there could be more advanced functions as well, including control over permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are simpler to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that's the primary tool you will employ to manage your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it offers and if it shall work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and can make managing your presence online more challenging.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

When you buy a Linux shared hosting through our company, you could take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that is a part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It offers lots of capabilities and even regular ones like copying and moving files could be accessed via right-click context menus, that'll make you feel as if you’re working with an app on your desktop computer. If you move whole folders, their structure will be kept intact, so you will not have to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to many other sophisticated features too, so stuff like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area will be just 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 may also use three separate file editors – a plain text editor, a WYSIWYG editor and a code editor.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated, albeit intuitive File Manager offers you complete control over your content and you won't have any issues handling the files and folders that you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a website hosting service before. The options it is providing are no more than a couple of mouse clicks away, even the more advanced ones including creating a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Through right-click context menus, you'll feel like you’re working on your home PC. What's more, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both inside the account and from your personal computer. With the latter option, you are able to upload content directly, which takes away the need for an FTP client.
