Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, online file managers have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Nonetheless, when using the File Manager built in the ConstantWebs Hosting Web Control Panel, you will not only have a rapid, responsive and user–friendly file administration software, but also an instrument that will make a 3rd party FTP application unneeded. Consider a few of the characteristics that we have integrated into our File Manager.

Most File Managers specify all of the activities that one can execute on a file or folder on the top of the webpage. We believe that the latter is just not user–friendly enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you can get all file administration choices any time you right–click a file or folder. This method is also applicable for a lot of files/folders.

When compressing a folder as well as a range of files, it is also possible to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and also the title of one’s archive file.
