Drag ’n’ drop file uploads

Adding data files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and really unsafe method for transferring files from your desktop computer or laptop to a hosting server. For this reason, we have integrated drag & drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Simply pull the files that you want to publish from your desktop computer into your web browser and they’ll begin to publish in your website hosting profile through a secure SSL connection.
There is no need to mount any additional software pack, web browser extensions or web apps. The drag & drop function operates equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac.

Apart from the typical control bar towards the top of the webpage, we have furthermore introduced right–click context menus with the common file control possibilities. Simply click on a file or folder and choose the action that you’d like from the collection which will turn up.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide on using a mouse–click. If you click on a folder, additionally you can set up a different directory or file in it.

Whenever compressing a directory or a list of files, it is possible to choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and then the title of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
Edit files from your Web Control Panel
From your File Manager you’ll be able to revise your files instantly on the net by making use of the included software instruments. The text editor reveals the files with a plain text format, the code editor has syntax displaying for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor really helps you to see all the changes while they appear online. Furthermore, all changes you create and keep are going to be displayed instantly on the web, in order for you to examine them inside your web browser and return to make extra edits, if unsatisfied.
