Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated method to add data files
Publishing data files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and really insecure way of transporting files from your desktop computer or notebook to a server. By reason of this, we have integrated drag–and–drop file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the files that you need to add from your desktop into your web browser and they will start to publish in your website hosting account over a risk–free SSL communication.
There is no need to install any additional computer software, web browser extensions or programs. The drag–and–drop feature works just as well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Handle your files with just a click
The majority of File Managers specify all of the actions that you can carry out with a file or folder at the top of the web page. We think this is not user–friendly enough. With the File Manager, you can get all file managing options when you right–click a file or folder. This option is likewise applicable for a lot of files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or directory you choose with simply a mouse–click.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Compared to nearly all file management interfaces as well as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the Hosting Webs UK Website Control Panel features a solution to archive/unarchive files considerably faster. It is user–friendly. To get a directory reduced to a compact size, simply select it and then click the Compress button. To open up the contents of an archived folder inside your hosting account, pick it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager works with a wide range of file extensions, for example .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Change files straight from your Website Control Panel
From your File Manager it’s possible to modify your files instantly on the Internet by using some of the included software tools. The text editor reveals the files with a plain text format, the code editor features syntax accentuating for your personal .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor makes it possible to view your changes as they appear live. Also, all changes you create and keep will be displayed straight away online, meaning you can preview them in your web browser and get back to create further modifications, if not satisfied.
You don’t have to download your files, to modify them in your personal computer and to re–upload them into your hosting account. All of the editors are available using the buttons at the top of the file table or at the right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files sorted out in a convenient–to–use manner
The File Manager lists all of the files and folders in a clear to see alphabetical order. All the files pertaining to the many hosts are arranged within individual folders which are named after their respective domain names, which means you can instantly recognize them. This is really useful in controlling several sites at the same time. There isn’t any opportunity to stray or to feel really baffled amongst the plethora of files and folders inside your cloud hosting account.

Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to guard your details
In order to password–protect a folder in your site, you have got to configure an .htaccess file by yourself. However, this generally is time–demanding and complex if you’re not well–trained in Linux web hosting. With the File Manager, you can create a password–protected folder and hide all of its items from any users with only a couple of clicks.
Everything you need to undertake is right–click a folder, pick Password Protection and after that choose the Add option. After that just indicate a username and a security password.
