Check out some of the capabilities that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The simplest approach to upload data files
Submitting files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and quite an unsafe way for transferring data files from your desktop computer or notebook to a web hosting server. For this reason, we have integrated drag & drop file publish support in the File Manager. Just drag the files that you need to publish from your computer into your Internet browser and they’ll start to publish in your website hosting account over a safe SSL communication.
You don’t have to set up any additional computer software, browser extensions or programs. The drag & drop capability performs equally well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus

A large number of File Managers include all of the actions which you can conduct on a file or directory at the top of the page. We believe this is just not user–friendly enough. Using the File Manager, you can get all of the file management options any time you right–click a file or directory. This method is also applicable for a lot of files/folders.
You can actually rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or directory you select with merely a click of the mouse.
Take care of archives with only a click of the mouse
The File Manager provides a built in archive/unarchive option to assist you upload big archives and then extract them in your cloud hosting account blazingly fast. When compressing a file or folder, you will be able to select the name of the archive that will be created along with its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Furthermore, it’s possible to compress current files or folders with just a mouse–click.
The archive/unarchive option offered by the File Manager lets you work with enormous files straight from your Hosting Control Panel. You don’t need to start using any third–party software like an FTP client in an effort to upload a huge file onto your web hosting account or to download any archive in your desktop.
Integrated file editors

We have incorporated a pair of file editors inside the Hosting Control Panel so you’re able to generate easy and quick adjustments for your files without having to employ any third–party apps. In the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that can help you check any changes which you create in real time, a code editor which includes syntax accentuating for your .PHP or .JS files, and also a plain text editor for more competent users. All the changes you create and save will be demonstrated right away on the Internet.
You can access the file editors making use of the buttons at the top of the file table and / or by right–clicking a selected file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All your files arranged in an uncomplicated way
All of the files within your web hosting account are structured into directories. Every single host features its own primary folder, that follows the file structure that you’ve selected. In this way, it is effortless to handle all of your current hosts in one place without risk of becoming lost or baffled.
By standard, you will notice all of the hosts conveniently contained in a table and if you click once over a given host, you will observe all of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking on twice, you will go to a page that’s focused on that host alone. Another way to open the folder related to a specific host and also to use it solely, is by using the drop–down menu at the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager developed for the people
The majority of online File Managers are slow and challenging to use. They give you modest possibilities and aren’t really uncomplicated. We seek to change that through the Low Cost File Manager.

All of its capabilities, the drag’n’drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the integrated file editors, etcetera are there for a single purpose – to help make controlling your web site(s) less complicated.
