All hosting accounts are handled using a Control Panel and regardless of the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which enables you to browse the files that you've uploaded inside the web hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there could be more advanced features also, like control over permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are easier to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that's the main tool you will employ to handle your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it offers and if it will suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and will make managing your web presence more challenging.
File Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
When you order a Linux cloud website hosting through our company, you could take advantage of a modern File Manager tool, that's a part of our Hepsia web hosting CP. It provides many capabilities and even conventional ones like copying and moving files may be accessed through right-click context menus, which will make you feel as if you’re working with an application on your home PC. If you transfer whole folders, their structure will be kept unchanged, so you shall not have to worry about scrambled files. The context menus will give you access to lots of other sophisticated capabilities too, so things such as creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be merely a click away. What is more, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, since our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can even use three different file editors – a plain text editor, a WYSIWYG editor and a code editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool will enable you to do virtually anything you need. It is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts and in addition to the regular features such as copying, deleting or renaming files, you will be able to use right-click menus to access more complex ones. With a couple of mouse clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to modify the UNIX permissions if a script-based application needs it or to alter the content of any file using WYSIWYG editors, plain text and code. What is more, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content because you could simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
