All web hosting accounts are handled using a CP and no matter the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which enables you to browse the files that you have uploaded in the web hosting account and to execute simple operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there can be more complex features also, including management of permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are easier to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that is the primary tool that you'll use to manage your files, it's important to check in advance what options it comes with and if it will suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and can make managing your web presence harder.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
The feature-rich File Manager included with our cloud hosting plans will make controlling your web content as basic as handling files on your desktop computer or laptop. You'll be able to drag-and-drop files and folders not just inside the account, but also directly from your PC, so you shall no longer need an FTP client to upload content. What is more, the folder structure will be maintained, so files from separate folders shall not get mixed. You could also use right-click context menus and access different features. You will be able to set up and extract archives, to create password-protected areas and a lot more. If you'd like to change files, you could do that through a number of different editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you can choose the one that you need and feel most at ease working with.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
The File Manager tool, which is an essential part of our custom Hepsia web hosting CP, shall give you complete control over your web content and will take away the need of using third-party apps. If you want to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you will simply have to drag-and-drop it, due to the fact that the File Manager supports uploads, so you'll not need to employ an FTP client anymore. You shall also be able to transfer files and folders in the 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 edit a file through a plain text or an HTML editor, you'll only have to use the right-click, considering that you can access these functions using right-click context menus - you’ll feel like you’re working on your computer system. To make managing your content so much easier, you will be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by size, name or last modified date.
