Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Transfer files to your web pages without any difficulty
The File Manager in your Web Hosting Control Panel boasts a fast, drag–and–drop feature that can help you transfer data files between your PC and your hosting account without having to employ an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) tool. You can drag data files from your computer and drop them in your Web Hosting Control Panel with a mouse–click using a secure SSL connection.
The drag’n’drop feature is built–into the Web Hosting Control Panel, therefore, you don’t need to set up any third party computer software to use it. It also works well on all major Os’s, so all you should do to make use of it is sign in to your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
Handle your files with only a click
Most File Managers list all of the actions which you can perform over a file or folder at the top of the web page. We believe the latter is not user–friendly enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you can get all file managing choices when you right–click a file or folder. This method is also applicable for numerous files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or directory you select with simply a click of the mouse.
Work with huge files incredibly easily
On account of the built in archive/unarchive option, the File Manager helps you to handle big files and not having to use FTP. It’s possible to shrink a directory to a small size by simply clicking on the Compress button or get the contents of an archived folder by using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a directory or a selection of files, you’ll be able to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and also the name of the archive file.
Online file editors
The best approach to change your files
The File Manager will let you revise your files on the web server never having to download, modify and after that re–upload them. It is possible to modify your files straight away on the net, by making use of our included editors. You will find a code editor using syntax emphasizing for your .JS or .PHP files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, as well as a standard text editor for more experienced users.
You have access to every file editor with the right–click contextual menus. All changes produced to the files will be shown promptly online – you are able to directly preview them within the Internet browser.
A logical folder structure
All of your files structured with a simple to use way
Each of the files inside your website hosting account are neatly arranged into directories. Every web host has its own main directory, that employs the file structure that you’ve selected. In this way, it is very easy to handle all of your current hosts from one place without the chance of getting lost or perplexed.
By default, you will see each of the hosts conveniently placed in a table and if you mouse–click once on a specific host, you will observe the whole set of sub–folders and files pertaining to it. By clicking twice, you will go to a web page that is centered on that host alone. Another way to load the folder related to a certain host and also to use it solely, is to try using the drop–down menu at the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager made especially for the people
Most online File Managers are slow and complex to apply. They have constrained options and generally aren’t really intuitive. We strive to change that through the Hostmelon File Manager. It’s designed to be easy–to–use and to resemble an item you already know – the File Manager on your desktop.
All its capabilities, the drag–and–drop file upload solutions, the right–click context menus, the integrated file editors, etcetera are available for just one reason – to create managing your site(s) a lot easier.

Change multiple files all at once
It is simple to work with a great number of files at the same time making use of the multi–selection capacity of the Hostmelon File Manager. All you need to do is press the Control key and click on the files or folders that you would like to select.

For those who have chosen the wanted files/folders, you may either drag them to a specific spot, or use different actions to them making use of right–click contextual menu as well as the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to guard your information
If you wish to password–secure a folder in your website, you need to configure an .htaccess file by yourself.
