Used as FTP client substitutes, web file managers have always been sluggish and poorly featured. However, with the File Manager featured in the Hosting502 Online Control Panel, you won’t just have a quick, responsive and easy–to–work–with file supervision interface, but also a software instrument that will make a third party FTP software unneeded. Check out a few of the functions that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Transmit data files to your websites with no trouble
The File Manager in your Online Control Panel includes a rapid, drag’n’drop capability that will assist you to move files between your personal computer and your website hosting account without the need to employ an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client. You could pull data files from your PC and drop them in your Online Control Panel with a mouse–click through a safe SSL connection.

Right–click context menus
Manage your files with a click
The vast majority of File Managers specify all of the activities that you can perform on a file or folder on the top of the page. We believe that this is just not properly arranged. Thanks to the File Manager, you have access to all of the file management choices at the time you right–click a file or folder. This option is also applicable for a group of files/folders.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or directory you select with only a mouse–click.
Make use of massive files effectively
Because of the inbuilt archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager will let you use big files and not have to use FTP. You are able to pack a directory to a compact size by clicking on the Compress button or get the items in an archived directory by using the Extract button. When compressing a directory as well as a range of files, you’ll be able to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and the title of the archive file.
Online file editors
Modify files straight from your Online Control Panel
Through the File Manager it is possible to edit your files instantly on the Internet working with the integrated software instruments. The text editor displays the files in a plain text file format, the code editor features syntax highlighting for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor allows you to preview your changes while they appear live. All the changes which you come up with and keep can be displayed instantaneously on the web, allowing you to examine them inside your web browser and return to make extra edits, in case you are not happy with the result.
It is not necessary to download your files, to modify them through your desktop computer and then to re–upload them back into your web hosting account. All the editors are available through the buttons near the top of the file table or from the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
Your files sorted in a simple manner
The File Manager lists all files and folders in a clear to see alphabetical order. The whole set of files pertaining to the various hosts are organized inside distinct directories that are named after their respective domain names, meaning you can efficiently recognize them. This really is useful in maintaining a group of web sites simultaneously. There is no chance to stray or to feel confused amongst the multitude of data files and folders in your account.
To reach the files under a specified host, just choose it from the drop–down navigation near the top of the file table. As an alternative, you’ll be able to double–click on its directory and you will be promptly taken to a table showing its files only.

Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to secure your details
