Right–click context menus
Handle all files with just a mouse–click
The vast majority of File Managers include all the actions you can carry out with a file or directory on the top of the web page. We believe that the latter isn’t user–friendly enough. Using the File Manager, you can get all file control choices when you right–click a file or folder. This option is also valid for multiple files/folders.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or directory you select using a click of the mouse.

Online file editors
Change files from your Web Hosting Control Panel
From the File Manager it is possible to edit your files instantly online when using any of the in–built instruments. The text editor reveals the files in a plain text file format, the code editor provides syntax accentuating for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor allows you to see all the edits as they appear online.

A logical folder structure
Your files structured with a convenient–to–use approach
The File Manager lists all files and directories in a clear and understandable alphabetical arrangement. All the files pertaining to the different hosts are structured inside independent folders which are referred to as following their respective domain names, which enables you to quickly acknowledge them. This is definitely useful in controlling a couple of websites simultaneously. There’s no probability to stray or to feel really confused amidst the plethora of files and folders inside your account.
To gain access to the files with a specific host, simply choose it in the drop–down menu at the top of the file table. Alternatively, you can double–click on its directory and you will be promptly taken to a table listing its files only.
