Online Control Panel, you won’t just have a rapid, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file supervision software, but also an instrument that will make a 3rd party FTP program unneeded. Consider a few of the functions that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated approach to upload data files
Importing files with an FTP tool is an outdated and really unsafe way for relocating data files from your desktop machine or laptop to a hosting server. By reason of this, we have included drag & drop file upload support in the File Manager. Simply pull the data files that you want to publish from your desktop computer into your browser and they will begin to upload in your hosting profile over a protected SSL communication.
You don’t need to mount any additional software pack, browser plug–ins or web apps. The drag & drop capability works equally well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
Manage your files with a click of the mouse
The vast majority of File Managers list all of the actions you can carry out with a file or folder on the top of the page. We feel this is not properly arranged. Using the File Manager, you can get all file managing choices any time you right–click a file or folder. This method is likewise valid for a number of files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or directory you decide using a click of the mouse.

On account of the in–built archive/unarchive option, the File Manager enables you to manage huge files without having to use FTP. It is simple to reduce the size of a directory into a compact size by simply clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the contents of an archived directory using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a bunch of files, it’s possible to choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) in addition to the title of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
The fastest solution to alter your files
The File Manager allows you to modify your files entirely on the server with no need to download, change and then re–upload them. It is easy to change your files straight away on the net, making use of the included editors.

You have access to each file editor with the right–click contextual menus. All adjusts produced to the files will appear instantaneously online – you’re able to directly examine them within your Internet browser.
A logical folder structure
All of your files organized with a user–friendly way
All the files inside your cloud hosting account are sorted into folders. Each and every host features its own primary folder, which employs the file structure you have defined. By doing this, it is straightforward to handle all your hosts from one place without chance of becoming lost or puzzled.
By standard, you will see all of the hosts placed in a table and when you click once on a specific host, you will observe all the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking twice, you will go to a webpage that’s devoted to that host only. An alternative way to open the folder pertaining to a certain host and then to work with it exclusively, is by using the drop–down menu at the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface

We hope to transform that with the Linux Hosts Inc. File Manager.
