All website hosting accounts are handled using a CP and regardless of the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which allows you to browse the files that you've uploaded inside the Internet hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the particular tool, there could be more advanced features as well, such as control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that's the main tool you shall use to control your files, it is important to check in advance what options it provides and if it'll appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and will make managing your web presence more difficult.

File Manager in Cloud Hosting

The feature-rich File Manager included with our cloud hosting solutions will make managing your content as basic as managing files on your PC or laptop. You shall be able to drag-and-drop folders and files not just inside the account, but also straight from your personal computer, so you'll no longer require an FTP client to upload data. Furthermore, the folder structure will be kept, so files from different folders will not get mixed. You could also use right-click context menus and access different features. You will be able to create and extract archives, to set up password-protected areas plus much more. If you want to modify files, you can easily do that via a number of editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you could pick the one you need and feel most comfy working with.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

The File Manager tool, which is part of our custom Hepsia web hosting CP, shall give you 100 % control over your data and will eliminate the need of employing third-party applications. If you wish 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 need to use an FTP client anymore. You shall also be able to transfer files and folders inside your account just as easily and their structure will be kept intact. If you'd 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 by using a plain text or an HTML editor, you will simply need to use the right-click, considering that you can access all of these functions through right-click context menus - you’ll feel as if you’re working on your computer system. To make handling your content much easier, you'll be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, size or name.
