However, with the File Manager featured in the JoomlaHosting.uk.com Online Control Panel, you will not only have a quick, intuitive and easy–to–use file administration software, but also an app that will make a 3rd party FTP application unnecessary. Check out several of the features that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add files effortlessly
Transferring data files between your PC and any of your web pages is right now quick and easy, because of the drag–and–drop functionality available from the File Manager. You can drag data files from your PC and drop them in the Online Control Panel via secure SSL connection. That’s it. It usually takes just a few seconds to upload a data file and a little bit longer for bigger files and directories.

Right–click context menus
Handle all files with merely a click
The vast majority of File Managers include all the actions you can perform on a file or folder at the top of the page. We think the latter isn’t user–friendly enough. With the File Manager, you can access all file management options at the time you right–click a file or directory. This method is also applicable for a lot of files/folders.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or folder you decide with a mouse–click.

The File Manager is equipped with a built–in archive/unarchive solution that may help you upload large archives and then extract them in to your web hosting account within seconds.

Additionally, you’ll be able to compress current files or folders with just a click of the mouse.
The archive/unarchive solution provided by the File Manager permits you to work with substantial files right from your Online Control Panel. You don’t need to apply any third–party software for instance an FTP client as a way to upload a large file in your hosting account or download any archive to your desktop.

Any changes you create and keep are going to be shown quickly online.
You have access to the file editors using the buttons near the top of the file table and also by right–clicking any file/folder.
A logical folder structure
Your files organized with an easy–to–use manner
Each of the files inside your cloud hosting account are structured into directories. Every host has its own main folder, that follows the file hierarchy you have selected. In this way, it is an easy task to maintain all of your current hosts in one place without any probability of becoming lost or baffled.
By default, you will see all of the hosts conveniently indexed in a table and if you mouse–click once over a given host, you will see each of the sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking twice, you will go to a web page which is dedicated to that host only. Another way to open the folder associated with a specific host and then to use it solely, is to use the drop–down menu towards the top of the main File Manager file table.
