In addition, you can quickly archive and unarchive data files and directories, set password–protected areas, adjust file permissions and a lot more. Have a look at the features contained in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most straightforward method to publish files
Submitting files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and quite an unsafe way for relocating data files from your PC to a web hosting server. This is why, we have integrated drag’n’drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Just drag the data files that you need to upload from your computer into your web browser and they will begin to publish in your hosting account over a safe SSL connection.
You do not have to set up any extra software package, browser extensions or web apps. The drag & drop functionality operates equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Manage all files with only a click of the mouse
The majority of File Managers include all of the activities you can conduct with a file or directory on the top of the webpage. We feel that the latter is not properly arranged. Using the File Manager, you have access to all file managing options when you right–click a file or folder. This approach is also applicable for a group of files/folders.
It’s possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or directory you decide on using a click of the mouse.
Deal with enormous files easily
Due to the built–in archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager allows you to use big files never having to use FTP. You are able to reduce the size of a directory into a lightweight size by simply clicking on the Compress button or access the items in an archived folder by using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a folder as well as a selection of files, it is also possible to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and then the title of the archive file.
Integrated file editors
No third party programs are required
We have enclosed a pair of file editors within the Web Hosting Control Panel to guide you to make easy and quick alterations to your files and never have to make use of third party apps. Within the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that will help you monitor any changes that you generate immediately, a code editor that boasts syntax displaying for one’s .PHP or .JS files, together with a plain text editor for more experienced customers. Any changes which you make and save are going to be shown right away online.
You have access to the file editors when using the buttons near the top of the file table and / or by right–clicking a certain file/folder.
A logical folder structure
Your files organized inside an uncomplicated approach
If you are managing a lot of different sites at the same time, it’s crucial for you to have every little thing structured. With other File Managers, editing a multitude of websites within the same hosting account is extremely challenging. With the File Manager, you will see that it is actually rather easy. Every website features its own folder, which you’ll straight away identify, and all of the files related to the specific web site are found there.
And to make things even easier, you will find a drop–down menu from where you can quickly select on exactly which host you wish to work inside the File Manager. Our smart system will lead you there within seconds.

Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest way to take care of your details
There’s a single typical way for you to protect a directory with a pass word – by generating an .htaccess file. In case, however, you’re not technologically competent enough, you will have difficulty performing it all on your own.
