Applied as FTP software alternatives, web file managers have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Nevertheless, using the File Manager built in the Web Hosting Priced Right Web Control Panel, you won’t only employ a quick, intuitive and user–friendly file managing software, but also an app that will make a 3rd party FTP application unneeded. Have a look at some of the functions that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated way to upload data files
Importing data files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and quite an unsafe way for shifting files from your notebook or computer to a hosting server. This is why, we have integrated drag–and–drop file upload support in the File Manager. Simply pull the files that you need to add from your desktop computer into your browser and they’ll begin to upload in your hosting account over a secure SSL connection.
You don’t have to deploy any extra software pack, browser add–ons or apps. The drag–and–drop functionality operates just as well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Handle all of your with a click
Most File Managers list all of the actions that one can perform within a file or directory at the top of the web page. We believe that this isn’t intuitive enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you can get all of the file management choices any time you right–click a file or folder. This method is also valid for multiple files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or directory you decide on with simply a mouse–click.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Distinct from the majority of file management user interfaces and FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the Web Hosting Priced Right Web Control Panel boasts a solution to archive/unarchive files more speedily. It is straightforward. To have a directory reduced to a lightweight size, simply select it and then click the Compress button. To open up the belongings of an archived directory within your cloud hosting account, choose it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager works with an assortment of file extensions, like .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Modify files straight from your Web Control Panel
With the File Manager it is possible to alter your files instantly on the Internet using many of the built in tools. The text editor shows the files in a plain text file format, the code editor features syntax highlighting for your personal .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor allows you to see your edits while they show up live. Any changes that you create and save are going to be demonstrated immediately on the net, which means you can review them with your Internet browser and go back to generate more changes, if unsatisfied.
It is not necessary to download any files, to edit them in your desktop and to re–upload them back into your account. All of the editors are found via the buttons near the top of the file table or through the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files organized inside a user–friendly method
When you are in charge of a bunch of web sites at the same time, it’s essential that you have everything sorted. With other File Managers, revising a bunch of websites inside the same account can be quite tricky. Using our File Manager, you’ll see that it is in fact rather easy. Every single site has its own directory, which you’ll immediately identify, and all of the files related to the specified web site are placed there.
And also to make everything so much easier, you will find a drop–down menu from which it’s easy to choose on exactly which web host you intend to work inside the File Manager. Our clever system will take you there in no time.

Quick & simple password protection options

There is one widespread way for you to protect a directory with a security password – by making an .htaccess file. In case, however, you’re not technologically competent sufficiently, you will have difficulty executing it without any help. To help make things straightforward, we’ve added an easy–to–use password protection user interface to the File Manager available inside the Web Control Panel.
