Used as FTP software substitutes, web file managers have always been slow and poor in features. However, when using the File Manager integrated in the Pubhost Web Control Panel, you won’t only have a rapid, responsive and easy–to–use file managing software, but also a software instrument that will make a third–party FTP application unnecessary. Check out several of the features that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Publish data files without trouble
Moving data files between your computer and any of your web pages is right now easy and quick, thanks to the drag–and–drop functionality provided by the File Manager. You could drag data files from your desktop machine or notebook and drop them in your Web Control Panel via secure SSL connection. That’s it. It will take seconds to upload a file and a bit longer for bigger files and folders.
It is not necessary to put in any third party software package or web browser extensions. The drag & drop function built into the File Manager works just as well on all major operating systems.
Right–click context menus
All file administration possibilities at your disposal
We have always given our best to make File Manager as intuitive as it could possibly be, so you can easily make modifications to your files. In addition to the typical control bar towards the top of the web page, we have now also designed right–click contextual menus with all the common file control options. Just click on a file or folder and pick the activity that you would like within the selection that will pop up.
You are able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you select with a click of the mouse. Should you click a directory, you should also generate a new directory or file within it.
The right–click choices are also available when you pick multiple files or folders at the same time.
Handle huge files conveniently
Due to the internal archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager helps you to handle enormous files never having to use FTP. It is simple to reduce the size of a folder into a small size by clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the contents of an archived folder through the Extract button. When compressing a directory or multiple files, it is also possible to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and also the name of the archive file.
Online file editors
Change files straight from your Web Control Panel
From your File Manager you can easily manage your files directly online employing any of the built–in software instruments. The text editor shows the files with a plain text format, the code editor provides syntax accentuating for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor helps to view your edits while they show up live. Furthermore, all changes which you make and keep will be reflected promptly on the Internet, meaning you can preview them with your Internet browser and get back to create more changes, in case you are not happy with the result.
There is no need to download any files, to edit them through your PC and then to re–upload them back to your hosting account. All the editors are found via the buttons near the top of the file table or at the right–click context menus.
