Applied as FTP client substitutes, online file managers have always been slow and poorly featured. Yet, with the File Manager integrated in the Joomla CMS Hosting Online Control Panel, you will not only have a speedy, responsive and easy–to–use file management software, but also an instrument that will make an external FTP application unneeded. Check out several of the characteristics that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least difficult way to upload files
Importing files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and quite an insecure way for transporting files from your laptop or computer to a web server. That’s why, we have included drag–and–drop file upload support in the File Manager. Simply pull the data files that you want to upload from your PC into your Internet browser and they will begin to publish in your hosting account through a safe SSL communication.
You don’t need to install any extra software, web browser extensions or web apps. The drag–and–drop functionality works equally well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
Manage all files with a click of the mouse
A large number of File Managers list all the activities which you can perform over a file or directory at the top of the webpage. We feel that this is not user–friendly enough. With the File Manager, you have access to all file managing options any time you right–click a file or folder. This option is also applicable for numerous files/folders.
You can actually rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or directory you decide on with a mouse–click.
Handle massive files effortlessly
Because of the internal archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager makes it possible for you to handle enormous files never having to use FTP. You can easily reduce the size of a folder into a compact size by simply clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the contents of an archived directory using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a folder or a number of files, it is possible to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) as well as the title of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
Edit files from your Online Control Panel
From the File Manager it’s possible to edit your files directly on the Internet when using the integrated software tools. The text editor shows the files in a plain text file format, the code editor provides syntax highlighting for your personal .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor lets you to preview your modifications as they appear live. Furthermore, all changes you come up with and save can be reflected immediately on the world wide web, so that you can preview them in your own browser and go back to make extra changes, if you are not happy with the result.
You don’t have to download any files, to modify them in your personal computer and then to re–upload them back into your account. All the editors are found through the buttons at the top of the file table or from your right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All of your files sorted in a convenient–to–use way
Each of the files in your cloud hosting account are neatly arranged into directories. Each and every web host does have its main folder, that follows the file structure which you have defined. Using this method, it is very easy to control all your hosts from a single location with no chance of becoming lost or confused.
By standard, you will see all of the hosts conveniently listed in a table and if you mouse–click once over a given host, you will see all the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking twice, you are going to visit a page that is focused entirely on that host alone. One other way to open the folder related to a certain host and also to work with it solely, is to use the drop–down menu towards the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager made for real people
Managing all of your files is intuitive and hassle–free making use of Joomla CMS Hosting Online Control Panel. You’ll get a file administration environment that is very close to your desktop computer’s file explorer. You’ll be able to drag and drop files and deal with all of them with a right mouse–click. Thanks to the built–in preview option, you can see graphics exactly like they will show up on the web, and via the enclosed file editors you could make transformations to your files right away.
If you want help controlling your files, you can easily make reference to the enormous selection of posts and how–to video lessons, which you could find with simply a click of the mouse.
Work with multiple files
Adjust an array of files simultaneously
You can easily manage a multitude of files simultaneously while using the multi–selection capability of the Joomla CMS Hosting File Manager. Everything you need to do is simply press the Control key and click on the files or directories you want to choose. If you wish to pick a list of files/folders in a row immediately, click on the first file/folder, hold down the Shift key and then choose the last file or folder within the set.
If you have picked the desired files/folders, you can either drag them to a different location, or employ a variety of actions to them using the right–click contextual menu or the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options

If you wish to password–protect a directory within your website, you have got to make an .htaccess file by yourself. Having said that, this generally is time–absorbing and complex if you are not well–experienced in hosting.
