Find out more about the features of a File Manager inside a web hosting control panel and why you will need one.
All hosting accounts are handled using a CP and regardless of the brand 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 execute simple operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there can be more complex functions too, such as control over permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are simpler to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. As that's the main tool that you will employ to control your files, it's important to check in advance what options it includes and if it'll work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and can make managing your online presence more challenging.
File Manager in Hosting
If you purchase a hosting
through our company, you can take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that is a part of our Hepsia web hosting CP. It includes numerous features and even standard ones like copying and moving files could be accessed via right-click context menus, that will make you feel as if you’re using an application on your home PC. If you relocate entire folders, their structure shall be kept intact, so you will not have to be worried about scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to many other advanced capabilities as well, so stuff like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area will be only a click away. Furthermore, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, because our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You can also use three different file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a code editor and a plain text editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
The File Manager tool, which is an essential part of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, shall give you complete control over your data and will remove the need of using third-party software. If you would like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server
account, you will simply need to drag-and-drop it, since the File Manager supports uploads, so you shall not need to use an FTP client anymore. You'll also be able to transfer files and folders in your account just as easily and their structure shall be kept undamaged. If you'd like to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to modify a file through a plain text or an HTML editor, you'll only have to use the right-click, because you can access all of these features from right-click context menus - you’ll feel like you’re working on your home computer. To make managing your content that much easier, you shall be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by name, size or last modified date.
