Hostgre's File Manager section allows you to manage your website content by means of simple point & click actions. Right-click contextual menus allow fast access to various file manipulation options, while user-friendly drag & drop functionality will allow you to upload new files from your desktop computer in an instant. You will also find integrated file editors and an image viewer. You will be able to pack and uncompress files with ease as well.
Fast File Uploads and Downloads
Working with the File Manager feels like working with your desktop PC. The integrated drag 'n' drop functionality will allow you to effortlessly transfer files between your desktop computer and the hosting server. Just select the file that you would like to upload from your personal computer and then drag it to your browser. The same applies to downloading a file from the File Manager to your computer. Moreover, you can download files and even folders to your personal computer by pushing the Download button.
Easy File Editing Options
With the File Manager user interface, you can create a new file or folder with only one single click. All action buttons are conveniently placed above the file/folder list and you can edit your files easily. You can rename or copy a file, move a file to a different folder, see the contents of a file or update its permissions, delete a file, and so on.
Handy Archive/Unarchive Functionality
With the File Manager interface, you will be able to pack and unpack all types of files. It works incredibly fast - simply select the files you wish to compress and click the Compress button. You can even select the archive file format (.rar, .zip, and so on). It is just as easy to extract an archive file to a chosen folder.
With the File Manager GUI, you really do not need any third-party software to modify your files. There is an image viewer, which enables you to view the contents of your image files to get a clue about how the images will actually appear on your web site. Moreover, you will find a set of in-built file editors, which will grant you total command over your files. The plain text editor and the code editor are intended for more competent users, while the WYSIWYG editor (where you can view all code changes in real time) is also suitable for technically inexperienced individuals.
It doesn't matter if you have one single website or multiple web sites hosted in your hosting account - we have a handy Host Shortcut feature, so you can quickly select only the site you want to work with. With the File Manager, you can also use most of the popular keyboard commands - press Delete to erase a file or a folder, or hold down the Ctrl button to select multiple files at a time.
