Applied as FTP client substitutes, web–based file managers have always been slow and poor in capabilities. However, when using the File Manager integrated in the W Hosting Web Site Control Panel, you won’t just have a quick, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file administration software, but also an app that will make a third party FTP software unnecessary. Consider several of the characteristics that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add data files with ease
Moving files between your personal computer and any of your webpages is now quick and simple, thanks to the drag & drop option delivered by the File Manager. You could pull files from your PC and drop them in the Web Site Control Panel via secure SSL communication. That’s all. It usually takes seconds to upload a file and slightly longer for any bigger files and directories.
You don’t have to add any third–party software package or Internet browser plug–ins. The drag–and–drop functionality contained in the File Manager performs equally well on all popular operating systems.
Right–click context menus
See each of the available file administration options with simply a click
Due to the right–click menus that we have put into the File Manager, it’s possible to modify your files easier than ever. Simply click on a file or folder and with the panel that will pop up, pick the action that you’d like. It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any chosen file. When you click a folder, you will also see the solution to make a new sub–folder or file within it.
Whenever you select multiple files or directories, it is easy to use identical procedures for all of them concurrently.
Control archives with merely a click of the mouse
The File Manager is equipped with an internal archive/unarchive option to help you to upload massive archives and extract them into your website hosting account blazingly fast. When compressing a file or folder, you’ll be able to decide on the name of the archive that’ll be created and its particular extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Additionally, you are able to archive already present files or folders with merely a mouse–click.
The archive/unarchive option provided by the File Manager really helps to use substantial files right from your Web Site Control Panel. No reason to work with any third party software for example an FTP client in order to upload a substantial file onto your cloud hosting account or to download any kind of archive on your desktop.
Online file editors
Change files directly from your Web Site Control Panel
From your File Manager it is possible to alter your files instantly on the Internet when using the included software instruments. The text editor displays the files with a plain text formatting, the code editor features syntax displaying for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor lets you to view your edits when they appear online. All the changes that you create and keep are going to be demonstrated quickly on the net, which enables you to preview them in your web browser and get back to make further changes, if unhappy.
You do not have to download your files, to modify them through your PC and to re–upload them into your website hosting account. Each of the editors are available through the buttons near the top of the file table or from the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
Your files structured with a simple to use manner
All of the files inside your web hosting account are neatly arranged into folders. Every single web host features its own primary directory, that employs the file hierarchy which you have defined. In this way, it is an easy task to handle all of your hosts in one place without the chance of getting lost or baffled.
By default, you will see each of the hosts conveniently mentioned in a table and if you click once on a given host, you will see each of the sub–folders and files pertaining to it. By clicking on two times, you will go to a page that’s dedicated to that host only. An alternative way to load the folder associated with a specific 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
A File Manager suitable for the general public
The vast majority of web File Managers are sluggish and complex to make use of. They feature reduced options and typically are not really simple to use. We hope to improve that through the W Hosting File Manager. It’s intended to be intuitive and also to appear to be something you you are already familiar with – the File Manager on your personal computer.
All of its attributes, the drag’n’drop file upload solutions, the right–click context menus, the internal file editors, etc. are there for a single reason – to help make managing your website(s) less complicated.

After getting picked the files, you are able to instantly transfer them to another location thanks to the drag & drop option. With the help of the right–click context menu along with the buttons above the file table, you’ll be able to use a number of other activities – it is easy to copy, rename, delete, download and edit your files, transform file permissions, and so on.
