Discover more about the capabilities of a File Manager within a hosting control panel and why you will need one.
All hosting accounts are handled through a Control Panel and whatever the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which allows you to browse the files that you have uploaded in the web hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the particular tool, there may be more advanced features too, like control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Since this is the primary tool that you will use to control your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it comes with and if it shall work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your web presence more complicated.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will permit you to do just about anything you require. It's an element of the Hepsia CP, included with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the standard features including renaming, copying or deleting files, you will be able to use right-click menus to access more complex ones. With several clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to edit the UNIX permissions if a script-based app needs it or to modify the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. What is more, you will no longer require an FTP program to upload new content as you could just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your personal computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
