All hosting accounts are handled through a Control Panel and no matter the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files that you've uploaded inside the hosting account and to perform simple operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there may be more advanced features too, like management of permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are easier to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. As that is the primary tool that you'll use to handle your files, it's crucial to check in advance what options it includes and if it shall appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and will make managing your online presence more difficult.
File Manager in Website Hosting
When you purchase a Linux website hosting
through our company, you can take advantage of a sophisticated File Manager tool, which is part of our Hepsia website hosting hosting CP. It comes with many functions and even regular ones such as copying and moving files can be accessed through right-click context menus, which will make you feel like you’re using an app on your home PC. If you transfer entire folders, their structure will be kept unchanged, so you won't need to be concerned about scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to a lot of other sophisticated features as well, so things like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be merely a click away. Furthermore, you won't need a third-party FTP program to upload content, due to the fact that our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You can also use three different file editors – a code editor, a plain text editor and a WYSIWYG editor.
