A File Manager software tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's employed to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may provide you with more complex features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use could make it more irritating and difficult for you to control the website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all the files you upload to your shared web hosting account without any difficulty. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same way - pick a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you may also access context menus with more advanced options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also included help articles and video tutorials, which you can access right from the File Manager to learn more about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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