Used as FTP software alternatives, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Yet, when using the File Manager integrated in the Website Servers Web Hosting Control Panel, you won’t only have a blazingly fast, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file management software, but also a software tool that will make an external FTP application unnecessary. Have a look at some of the functions that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Transmit data files to your sites without difficulty
The File Manager in your Web Hosting Control Panel includes a quick, drag’n’drop function that will allow you to transfer files between your computer and your hosting account without needing to apply an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) tool. You can easily pull files from your computer and drop them in your Web Hosting Control Panel with a mouse–click through a protected SSL connection.
The drag & drop function is built into the Web Hosting Control Panel, so that you don’t need to mount any third–party application to take full advantage of it. It also works well on all major Os’s, so all you should do to make use of it is sign in to your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
Handle all of your with just a mouse–click
The majority of File Managers include all of the activities that one can perform on a file or folder at the top of the page. We feel that this is just not user–friendly enough. Using the File Manager, you can access all of the file managing options when you right–click a file or directory. This method is also valid for a group of files/folders.
It’s possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or folder you decide on with only a click of the mouse.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Unlike most file management interfaces as well as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the Website Servers Web Hosting Control Panel features a solution to archive/unarchive files more speedily. It is simple to operate. To get a folder reduced to a lightweight size, simply pick it and then click the Compress button. To unwrap the contents of an archived directory within your website hosting account, pick it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager uses a wide range of file extensions, for example .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
The fastest way for you to customize your files
The File Manager helps to revise your files entirely on the web hosting server without the need to download, adjust and re–upload them. You can update your files directly on the Internet, by using Website Servers’s built–in editors. We provide you with a code editor with syntax highlighting for your .PHP or .JS files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, and then a regular text editor for the more experienced customers.
You can access every file editor with the right–click context menus. All alterations made to the files are reflected instantaneously online – it is easy to directly preview them inside the browser.
A logical folder structure
All your files organized with a convenient–to–use way
The File Manager lists all files and directories using a simple to comprehend alphabetical arrangement. The whole set of files associated with the many hosts are sorted inside individual directories that are titled following their particular domain names, so you can efficiently identify them. This really is useful when you are controlling a large number of websites simultaneously. There’s no probability to get lost or to feel really bewildered among the great number of data files and folders with your account.
To get into the files within a specified host, simply pick it within the drop–down options menu near the top of the file table. Additionally, you’ll be able to double–click on its directory and you are easily taken up to a table showing its files only.

Managing your files is natural and uncomplicated using the Website Servers Web Hosting Control Panel. You’ll enjoy a file management setting which is not far from your personal computer’s file explorer. You’ll be able to drag and drop files and control them with a right click of the mouse. Thanks to the internal preview option, you can observe pics in the same way they will be on the web, and via the built–in file editors you could make changes to your files in real time.
If you want guidance taking care of your files, you can consult the massive number of articles and how–to video tutorials, which you could access with a click of the mouse.
Work with multiple files
Change a lot of files at the same time
The File Manager will help you save lots of time whenever using multiple files. You’re able to pick many different files at the same time and apply a desired action for them just like you do with your desktop computer or laptop. To pick random files at once, simply hold down the Control key, and to select a couple of adjoining files, use the Shift key. It is that simple.
When you have picked the files, you can instantly move them to a different location making use of the drag & drop option. By means of the right–click context menu along with the buttons on top of the file table, you can apply a number of other actions – you can easily copy, rename, delete, download and modify your files, change file permissions, and so on.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest way to shield your data
If you need to password–secure a folder in your website, you will have to create an .htaccess file by yourself. However, this can be time–demanding and sophisticated if you aren’t a specialist in web hosting. When using the File Manager, you can make a password–secured directory and hide its contents from the standard users with merely several clicks.
What you need to execute is right–click a directory, go for Password Protection and click on the Add selection. And then simply state a username and a security password. No supplemental configuration is needed and there’s no need to handle an .htaccess file. Our platform will handle every little thing for you.
