Fast File Uploads and Downloads
Working with the File Manager feels like working with your desktop computer. The integrated drag-and-drop functionality will enable you to effortlessly transfer files between your desktop computer and the web hosting server. Just select the file that you want to upload from your desktop PC and then drag it over to your browser window. The same goes for downloading a file from the File Manager to your personal computer. Furthermore, you can download files and even folders to your hard disk drive by pressing the Download button.
Easy File Editing Options
With the File Manager, you can create a new file or folder with just a single click of the mouse. All action buttons are conveniently placed above the file/folder list and you can modify your files effortlessly. You can rename or copy a file, move a file to a different folder, view the contents of a file or modify its permissions, delete a file, etc.
Handy Archive/Unarchive Functionality
With the File Manager graphical user interface, you will be able to compress and unarchive all types of files. It does work surprisingly fast - simply select the files you would like to make a compressed archive of and press the Compress button. You can even select the archive type (.rar, .zip, and so on). It is just as easy to extract an archive file to a chosen directory.
With the File Manager interface, you really do not need any third-party software tools to edit your files. There is an image viewer, which allows you to view the contents of your image files to get an idea of how the images will actually show up on your website. Additionally, you will find an array of built-in file editors, which will give you complete control over your files. The plain text editor and the code editor are meant for more knowledgeable individuals, whereas the WYSIWYG editor (where you can view all source code changes in real time) is also suitable for non-tech-savvy individuals.
Irrespective of whether you have one single sites or multiple web sites hosted in your website hosting account - we have a convenient Host Shortcut feature, so you can quickly select only the web site you would like to work with. With the File Manager graphical user interface, you can also use the majority of the famous keyboard shortcuts - push Delete to delete a file or a folder, or hold down the Ctrl button to select multiple files simultaneously.
