All web hosting accounts are managed from a CP and no matter the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look at the files that you have uploaded inside the web hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there may be more complex features as well, including control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. As that is the main tool you'll employ to handle your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it provides and if it shall work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your presence online more complicated.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all the files which you upload to your cloud hosting
account easily. You may move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You may upload content in the same way - 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 in your account, you can also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also included help articles and video lessons, you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our custom Hepsia hosting CP, shall give you 100 % control over your data and will remove the need of using third-party software. If you want to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server
account, you shall only have to drag-and-drop it, because the File Manager supports uploads, so you'll not have to employ an FTP client anymore. You'll also be able to move folders and files inside your account just as fast and their structure will be kept intact. If you would like to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain or a subdomain or to modify a file through a plain text or an HTML editor, you will simply have to use the right-click, considering that you can access all these features through right-click context menus - you’ll feel as though you’re working on your home PC. To make handling your content a whole lot easier, you shall be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, name or size.
