Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, web file management tools have always been sluggish and poorly featured. However, when using the File Manager built in the REN Hosting Hosting Control Panel, you will not only have a quick, responsive and easy–to–work–with file managing client, but also an application that will make a 3rd party FTP application unneeded. Take a look at some of the capabilities that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The easiest way to publish data files
Importing files with an FTP tool is an out–of–date and quite an unsafe method for relocating data files from your computer to a hosting server. This is why, we have integrated drag & drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Just pull the data files that you want to upload from your desktop computer into your web browser and they will begin to publish in your hosting account over a protected SSL connection.
You don’t need to set up any extra software package, web browser plug–ins or web apps. The drag–and–drop functionality operates just as well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus
Handle all of your with merely a click of the mouse
The vast majority of File Managers include all the actions that you can conduct within a file or folder at the top of the web page. We feel that the latter is not intuitive enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you have access to all of the file management choices any time you right–click a file or directory. This option is likewise applicable for a lot of files/folders.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or directory you decide on with a mouse–click.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Not like the vast majority of file management user interfaces as well as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the REN Hosting Hosting Control Panel offers a solution to archive/unarchive files considerably quicker. It is well–designed. To get a folder shrunk to a small size, just pick it and then click the Compress button. To unwrap the belongings of an archived folder inside your cloud hosting account, select it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager supports numerous file extensions, like .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Modify files from your Hosting Control Panel
With the File Manager it’s possible to manage your files directly online by making use of many of the in–built software instruments. The text editor displays the files in a plain text format, the code editor features syntax highlighting for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor makes it possible for you to see all the modifications when they appear live. All the changes which you come up with and save will be reflected quickly online, meaning you can review them in your own web browser and get back to generate extra modifications, if unsatisfied.
It is not necessary to download any files whatsoever, to revise them on your PC and to re–upload them back into your cloud hosting account. Each of the editors are available using the buttons near the top of the file table or from the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files organized in a simple to use way
The File Manager lists all files and folders using a simple to implement alphabetical arrangement. All of the files associated with the many hosts are organized inside separate directories which are named after their particular domain names, so it’s possible to incredibly easy recognize them. This is actually useful when you are maintaining a lot of websites at the same time. There isn’t any chance to get lost or to feel really baffled amidst the many data files and directories with your account.
To reach the files under a specified host, just choose it in the drop–down navigation at the top of the file table. As an alternative, it’s possible to double–click on its directory and you are immediately taken up to a table listing its files only.

There’s a single standard way for you to secure a directory using a password – by making an .htaccess file. If, however, you are not technologically competent enough, you’ll have difficulties executing it all by yourself.
