All hosting accounts are handled via a CP and irrespective of the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you look into the files which you have uploaded inside the web hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there can be more advanced features too, such as control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are simpler to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. As that is the primary tool you'll use to control your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it provides and if it will suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your online presence harder.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated, though easy-to-work with File Manager provides you with full control over your content and you won't have any difficulties managing the files and folders that you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even if you have never used a web hosting service before. The options it is giving you are just a couple of clicks away, even the more advanced ones including creating a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, changing UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Through right-click context menus, you will feel as if you’re working on your own computer system. What's more, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both in the account and from your notebook or computer. With the latter alternative, you can upload content directly, which removes the need for an FTP client.
