Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client substitutes, online file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Nevertheless, with the File Manager included in the Web Hosting For Life Website Control Panel, you won’t only have a quick, responsive and time and effort saving file managing client, but also a tool that will make a 3rd party FTP program unneeded. Take a look at several of the features that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add data files without trouble
Transferring files between your PC and any of your web pages is now quick and simple, because of the drag’n’drop functionality available from the File Manager. You could pull data files from your notebook or computer and drop them in the Website Control Panel via secure SSL communication. That’s it. It requires just a few seconds to publish a data file and slightly longer for larger files and folders.
There is no need to install any third–party software package or browser plug–ins. The drag’n’drop function included in the File Manager works equally well on all popular operating systems.
Right–click context menus
All file managing options in front of you
We’ve always given our best to make your File Manager as intuitive as possible, so you are able to generate modifications to your files. Aside from the normal control bar at the top of the webpage, we have also designed right–click context menus with all the current general file administration possibilities. Simply click on a file or folder and select the actions you want from the collection that will pop up.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you choose with only a click of the mouse. When you click a directory, also you can generate a different directory or file within it.
The right–click choice is available as well whenever you pick many different files or folders at the same time.
