Applied as FTP software substitutes, web file management tools have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Yet, with the File Manager integrated in the SMN Hosting Hosting Control Panel, you won’t only employ a quick, intuitive and user–friendly file administration client, but also an app that will make a third party FTP application unneeded. Take a look at some of the options that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated approach to add files
Importing files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and really insecure way for switching files from your desktop machine or notebook to a web hosting server. Because of this, we have integrated drag–and–drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Simply pull the files that you need to publish from your desktop computer into your web browser and they will begin to upload in your web hosting account through a safe SSL connection.
You do not have to set up any additional software package, browser extensions or web apps. The drag–and–drop functionality operates just as well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Control all files with a click of the mouse
The majority of File Managers specify all the activities that you can perform with a file or folder on the top of the page. We think that the latter is just not intuitive enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you have access to all file managing options whenever you right–click a file or directory. This method is likewise valid for different files/folders.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or directory you select with simply a mouse–click.

The File Manager is equipped with an integrated archive/unarchive solution to help you to submit enormous archives and extract them into your cloud hosting account in seconds.

At the same time, it will be easy to compress existing files or folders with simply a click of the mouse.
The archive/unarchive alternative provided by the File Manager enables you to handle big files directly from your Hosting Control Panel. No need to work with any third party software for instance an FTP client in order to upload a substantial file to your cloud hosting account or to download any archive on your desktop.

A logical folder structure

All the files in your cloud hosting account are neatly organized into folders. Every single web host has its own main directory, that follows the file hierarchy that you’ve defined. In this way, it is really not difficult to maintain all of your current hosts in one location without the risk of becoming lost or puzzled.
By standard, you will see each of the hosts indexed in a table and when you mouse–click once on a given host, you will observe all of the sub–folders and files pertaining to it.
