All website hosting accounts are managed through a Control Panel and regardless of the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you look into the files which you have uploaded in the hosting account and to complete basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there may be more complex features too, including control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. As this is the primary tool that you will employ to manage your files, it's important to check in advance what options it comes with and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and will make managing your web presence harder.

File Manager in Shared Web Hosting

The feature-rich File Manager which comes with our shared web hosting packages will make controlling your web content as easy as managing files on your personal computer or laptop. You'll be able to drag-and-drop files and folders not only in the account, but also straight from your laptop or computer, so you'll no longer require an FTP client to upload information. What is more, the folder structure will be preserved, so files from different folders will not get mixed. You may also use right-click context menus and access various functions. You'll be able to set up and extract archives, to set up password-protected areas and more. If you want to change files, you can do that via a number of editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you can pick the one you need and feel most comfortable working with.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

The File Manager tool, which is an important part of our custom Hepsia web hosting CP, shall give you 100 % control over your web content and will eliminate the need of using third-party software. If you would like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you'll simply have to drag-and-drop it, due to the fact that the File Manager supports uploads, so you will not need to employ an FTP client anymore. You shall also be able to move folders and files inside your account just as fast and their structure will be kept unchanged. If you'd like to change the permissions of any file, to create a password-protected area for a domain or a subdomain or to modify a file using a plain text or an HTML editor, you will simply have to use the right-click, given that you may access all these features from right-click context menus - you’ll feel like you’re working on your personal computer. To make managing your content a whole lot easier, you will be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by size, name or last modified date.
