Applied as FTP software substitutes, web–based file managers have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Nevertheless, with the File Manager included in the Pearl Host Web Hosting Control Panel, you won’t only have a blazingly fast, responsive and easy–to–work–with file administration software, but also an application that will make a third–party FTP software unnecessary. Take a look at some of the characteristics that we have built–into our File Manager.

Right–click context menus
Handle all of your with only a click
The vast majority of File Managers include all the actions you can perform within a file or folder at the top of the webpage. We feel that the latter is just not properly arranged. Using the File Manager, you can access all of the file control options any time you right–click a file or directory. This approach is also applicable for different files/folders.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or folder you choose with merely a click of the mouse.

At the same time, you’ll be able to compress already present folders or files with merely a click of the mouse.
The archive/unarchive solution you can find at the File Manager enables you to make use of enormous files straight from your Web Hosting Control Panel. You don’t have to apply any third–party software like an FTP client in an effort to upload a large file to your cloud hosting account or to download an archive to your desktop.
Integrated file editors

Within the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that will assist you monitor all the current changes you make immediately, a code editor that boasts syntax displaying for your .PHP or .JS files, together with a plain text editor for more competent customers. All the changes which you generate and save can be reflected straight away on the Internet.
You have access to the file editors making use of the buttons near the top of the file table or by right–clicking a specific file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured in an uncomplicated manner
All of the files inside your hosting account are arranged into folders. Each web host does have its primary directory, which follows the file hierarchy that you’ve created. This way, it is really straightforward to maintain all of your hosts in one place with no risk of getting lost or confused.
By standard, you’ll see each of the hosts conveniently listed in a table and when you mouse–click once over a specific host, you’ll see each of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking on twice, you are going to visit a page which is centered on that host alone. A further way to load the folder associated with a certain host and to use it solely, is to use the drop–down menu towards the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager made for people
The vast majority of online File Managers are slow–moving and very difficult to make use of. They provide reduced options and aren’t really simple to use. We hope to change that with the Pearl Host File Manager. It was meant to be user–friendly and to seem like something you are already well aware of – the File Manager on your desktop.
All of its features, the drag & drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the built in file editors, etc. are there for 1 purpose – to help make controlling your website(s) less difficult.
