Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, web–based file managers have always been slow and poor in features. However, using the File Manager included in the Vulehost Web Control Panel, you will not only employ a quick, responsive and time and effort saving file managing client, but also an application that will make an external FTP application unnecessary. Take a look at several of the characteristics that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most straightforward way to publish data files
Submitting data files with an FTP tool is an outdated and quite an insecure method for relocating files from your desktop machine or laptop to a web hosting server. Because of this, we have included drag–and–drop file upload support in the File Manager. Just pull the files that you want to add from your desktop computer into your Internet browser and they will begin to upload in your web hosting account over a safe SSL communication.
You don’t have to mount any extra software, web browser extensions or applications. The drag–and–drop functionality operates equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
All of the file management options at hand
We have aimed to make the File Manager as easy–to–use as it could possibly be, so it is easy to generate modifications to your files. Apart from the regular command bar near the top of the page, we have furthermore integrated right–click context menus with the common file managing choices. Click on a file or directory and select the activity that you want within the list which will show up.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you select with only a mouse–click. In the event you click a folder, also you can generate a different folder or file inside it.
The right–click choice is conveniently obtainable if you select different files or folders at the same time.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Distinct from nearly all file management user interfaces as well as FTP clients, the Vulehost Web Control Panel features a solution to archive/unarchive files way quicker. It is really uncomplicated. To get a directory reduced into a small size, simply choose it and then click the Compress button. To unwrap the items in an archived directory in your cloud hosting account, select it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager uses many file extensions, including .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Modify files straight from your Web Control Panel
From your File Manager it is possible to alter your files instantly on the Internet by using any of the integrated software instruments. The text editor displays the files with a plain text formatting, the code editor provides syntax accentuating for your .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor lets you to see all the changes when they show up online. Also, all changes which you come up with and save will be reflected immediately on the world wide web, so it’s possible to examine them in your browser and return to make further edits, if unsatisfied.
There is no need to download any files whatsoever, to edit them through your PC and to re–upload them back to your website hosting account. Each of the editors are found through the buttons near the top of the file table or from your right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All of your files sorted with a simple to use way
All of the files inside your cloud hosting account are sorted into directories. Each and every web host does have its primary directory, that follows the file hierarchy that you’ve pre–set. In this way, it is really straightforward to maintain all your hosts in one location without the chance of becoming lost or confused.
By default, you will notice all of the hosts mentioned in a table and if you click once on a given host, you will observe all of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking twice, you will go to a page which is centered on that host exclusively. One other way to load the folder associated with a given host and also to work with it solely, is using the drop–down menu towards the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface

The Vulehost File Manager was developed in such a way as to make you feel just like making use of the file explorer on your desktop. It is provided with an option to drag your files and then to drop them inside a desired location and indicates all of the readily available edit options after clicking the right computer mouse button. In addition, the tool contains an inbuilt file preview solution and other file editors that can assist you modify your files live from your Web Control Panel.
Also, we have integrated a set of file management articles and how–to educational videos to help you rather quickly learn how to work with the tool.

Simply hold down the Control (Command for Mac OS) key and click on the wanted files/folders. In case you’d like, to pick a lot of files/folders at once, click on a single file/folder, hold down the Shift key and then click any other file or folder.

Quick & simple password protection options

To password–secure a directory within your website, you need to configure an .htaccess file by yourself. Expectedly, this generally is time–absorbing and complex if you’re not well–trained in Linux web hosting.
