Applied as FTP client alternatives, online file management tools have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Yet, with the File Manager built in the Please Host My Site Web Control Panel, you won’t only have a quick, responsive and easy–to–work–with file administration interface, but also a software instrument that will make an external FTP application unneeded. Take a look at some of the capabilities that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The simplest way to publish files
Uploading files with an FTP client is an outdated and quite an unsafe method for switching data files from your desktop machine or notebook to a web hosting server. Because of this, we have integrated drag–and–drop file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the data files that you want to add from your desktop into your web browser and they will start to publish in your web hosting profile through a protected SSL connection.
You don’t have to mount any extra computer software, browser plug–ins or web apps. The drag & drop feature works equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Manage your files with a click of the mouse
The majority of File Managers include all the actions that one can conduct over a file or directory at the top of the page. We feel the latter is just not properly arranged. Thanks to the File Manager, you have access to all file management choices when you right–click a file or folder. This method is also applicable for numerous files/folders.
It’s possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you decide with only a mouse–click.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Unlike a large number of file management user interfaces as well as FTP clients, the Please Host My Site Web Control Panel boasts a solution to archive/unarchive files considerably quicker. It is convenient–to–use. To have a folder reduced to a small size, simply pick it and click on the Compress button. To open the items in an archived folder inside your cloud hosting account, pick it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager uses a range of file extensions, just like .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Modify files from your Web Control Panel
From the File Manager it is easy to modify your files directly on the Internet by making use of many of the included software instruments. The text editor shows the files with a plain text file format, the code editor has syntax accentuating for your .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor makes it possible for you to preview your changes when they appear online. All the changes which you come up with and keep are going to be demonstrated automatically online, allowing you to review them in your own Internet browser and go back to create further modifications, if unsatisfied.
You don’t have to download any files, to modify them on your desktop computer and then to re–upload them back into your account. Each of the editors are accessible through the buttons at the top of the file table or from your right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
Your files sorted out with an uncomplicated approach
When you’re in charge of a couple of sites simultaneously, it is vital that you have every little thing structured. With some other File Managers, modifying a great number of web sites within the same account is extremely tricky. Using the File Manager, you’ll find that it’s actually pretty simple. Every site does have its own directory, which you’ll at once recognize, and all of the files associated with the specific site are located there.
And then to make things even easier, you will find a drop–down navigation where it’s easy to pick on which host you wish to work in the File Manager. Our clever system will lead you there in no time.

1–click password protection options
