All hosting accounts are managed via a CP and regardless of the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files that you've uploaded inside the Internet hosting account and to perform simple operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the particular tool, there may be more complex features as well, like management of permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that that's the main tool you shall use to manage your files, it is critical to check in advance what options it comes with and if it'll suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and can make managing your web presence more challenging.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
If you purchase a shared hosting
from our company, you could take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that's part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It includes a lot of functions and even regular ones such as copying and moving files can be accessed via right-click context menus, that will make you feel like you’re using an app on your desktop computer. If you relocate whole folders, their structure shall be kept intact, so you will not need to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to a lot of other innovative functions also, so things like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area shall be simply a click away. What is more, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, since our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You can even use three different file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a code editor and a plain text editor.
