Used as FTP client substitutes, web file managers have always been sluggish and poor in capabilities. Nevertheless, with the File Manager included in the Metro Hosting Online Control Panel, you won’t only employ a quick, responsive and time and effort saving file administration software, but also an app that will make a third party FTP software unnecessary. Take a look at a few of the functions that we have built–into our File Manager.

Drag ’n’ drop file uploads

The most simple way to publish files

Submitting files with an FTP tool is an out–of–date and quite an unsafe way for switching data files from your desktop machine or laptop to a hosting server. That’s why, we have integrated drag–and–drop file upload support in the File Manager. Simply pull the files that you need to add from your PC into your Internet browser and they’ll start to upload in your website hosting account over a protected SSL communication.

You don’t have to deploy any extra software, web browser add–ons or apps. The drag & drop feature performs equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.

Right–click context menus

Handle all files with only a click

The vast majority of File Managers list all the activities that you can conduct over a file or folder on the top of the webpage. We believe that this isn’t properly arranged. With the File Manager, you can get all of the file managing choices when you right–click a file or directory. This method is also applicable for a number of files/folders.

It’s possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you choose with just a mouse–click.

Also, it will be straightforward to archive active files or folders with just a mouse–click.

The archive/unarchive alternative you can find at the File Manager allows you to handle enormous files right from your Online Control Panel. No reason to apply any third party software for instance an FTP client in an effort to upload a big file in your cloud hosting account or to download any archive on your desktop.

Quick & simple password protection options
