Determine what a File Manager is and the way it is different from its pc counterpart.
All web hosting accounts are handled via a CP and irrespective of the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which allows you to look into the files that you have uploaded inside the web hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there can be more complex functions as well, including management of permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are easier to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that is the main tool that you will use to control your files, it is critical to check in advance what options it offers and if it'll work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and can make managing your presence online more difficult.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The feature-rich File Manager included with our shared hosting
packages shall make managing your web content as simple as managing files on your desktop computer or laptop. You'll be able to drag-and-drop files and folders not only inside the account, but also directly from your personal computer, so you will no longer require an FTP client to upload information. Furthermore, the folder structure shall be preserved, so files from different folders won't get mixed. You can also use right-click context menus and access a variety of features. You shall be able to create and extract archives, to create password-protected areas and a lot more. If you want to edit files, you can easily do that using a number of editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you may choose the one that you need and feel most comfy working with.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will enable you to do practically anything you want. It's a part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated server
accounts and in addition to the standard features such as renaming, copying or deleting files, you will be able to use right-click menus so as to access more complex ones.

The tool shall do the rest, conserving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
