Used as FTP software substitutes, online file managers have always been slow and poor in features. Nevertheless, when using the File Manager included in the hot2host Online Control Panel, you will not only employ a fast, responsive and time and effort saving file management software, but also a software tool that will make a third party FTP application unneeded. Check out a few of the functions that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Transmit data files to your web sites without any difficulty
The File Manager in your Online Control Panel boasts a quick, drag’n’drop feature that will let you transfer data files between your personal computer and your web hosting account without having to work with an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client. You can easily drag data files from your computer and drop them in your Online Control Panel with a mouse–click using a protected SSL connection.
The drag–and–drop functionality is built–into the Online Control Panel, therefore, you don’t have to install any third party software pack to apply it. It also works well on all leading Os’s, so all you should do to employ it is sign in to your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
View all the available file administration possibilities with only a click of the mouse
Due to the right–click menus we’ve included on the File Manager, you can revise all of your files incredibly easy. Click on a file or directory and through the panel that will show up, select the action that you like. It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete virtually any selected file. When you click on a folder, additionally, you’ll see the solution to establish a different sub–folder or file inside it.
If you select numerous files or directories, it is possible to apply the exact same measures for all of them simultaneously.
Handle enormous files incredibly easily
On account of the in–built archive/unarchive option, the File Manager really helps to work with substantial files with no need to use FTP. It is easy to shrink a folder into a lightweight size by clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the contents of an archived directory by using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a couple of files, you can also choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and then the name of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
Edit files directly from your Online Control Panel
From the File Manager you can easily change your files instantly on the net making use of the integrated tools. The text editor displays the files in a plain text file format, the code editor provides syntax displaying for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor helps to see your modifications as they appear online. Also, all changes which you generate and save are going to be demonstrated instantly online, in order for you to review them in your Internet browser and go back to create more changes, if unsatisfied.
You don’t have to download your files, to modify them with your desktop computer and then to re–upload them into your account. Each of the editors are found via the buttons at the top of the file table or at the right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All of your files sorted with an easy–to–use manner
All the files within your web hosting account are neatly arranged into directories. Every single web host has its own primary folder, which employs the file hierarchy which you have selected. This way, it is effortless to control all of your current hosts from a single location without any risk of becoming lost or perplexed.
By standard, you’ll see each of the hosts listed in a table and if you mouse–click once over a given host, you’ll see the whole set of sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking two times, you are going to visit a web page that’s centered on that host exclusively. One other way to open the folder associated with a specific host and to use it solely, is using the drop–down menu towards the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager suitable for the general public
The majority of web File Managers are slow and tricky to use. They supply constrained functions and are not really convenient–to–use. We strive to change that through the hot2host File Manager. It was intended to be user–friendly and also to appear like something you already know – the File Manager on your personal computer.
All its features, the drag’n’drop file upload options, the right–click contextual menus, the built–in file editors, etc. are there for just one purpose – to help make handling your website(s) less of a challenge.

You can easily work with numerous files at the same time employing the multi–selection ability of the hot2host File Manager. Everything you need to do is just hold down the Control key and click on the files or directories which you want to pick. Should you wish to choose a list of files/folders in a row at the same time, click the first file/folder, click the Shift key and then choose the very last file or folder in the set.
If you have picked the wanted files/folders, you can either drag them to a distinct place, or employ a variety of actions to them using the right–click context menu or the buttons at the top of the file table.
