Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, online file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in capabilities. Nonetheless, when using the File Manager featured in the Planetbuster Hosting Site Control Panel, you will not only have a rapid, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file management interface, but also an instrument that will make an external FTP application unneeded. Have a look at some of the characteristics that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Publish files without difficulty
Transferring data files between your computer and any of your web sites is now easy and quick, thanks to the drag’n’drop functionality offered by the File Manager. You can pull data files from your desktop computer or notebook and drop them in the Site Control Panel via secure SSL communication. That’s it. It usually takes seconds to add a file and slightly longer for the bigger data files and directories.
You don’t need to set up any third party application or Internet browser plug–ins. The drag’n’drop feature contained in the File Manager works just as well on all popular operating systems.
Right–click context menus
Manage all files with just a click
The majority of File Managers include all the actions you can carry out within a file or directory on the top of the web page. We think this is not properly arranged. Using the File Manager, you have access to all file managing options at the time you right–click a file or directory. This option is also applicable for a group of files/folders.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you select with just a mouse–click.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Distinct from the vast majority of file management user interfaces as well as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the Planetbuster Hosting Site Control Panel boasts a way to archive/unarchive files much more quickly. It is really convenient. To get a folder reduced into a compact size, simply choose it and click on the Compress button. To open the items in an archived folder inside your website hosting account, choose it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager supports a number of file extensions, for example .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
The fastest way for you to revise your files
Our File Manager will let you revise your files entirely on the web hosting server and never have to download, modify and subsequently re–upload them. You’re able to modify your files straight away on the net, by using our inbuilt editors. Our company offers a code editor provided with syntax displaying for your .JS or .PHP files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, and then a regular text editor for the more expert users.
You can access every file editor with the right–click context menus. All of the corrections made to the files are shown instantaneously online – you’re able to directly preview them within the Internet browser.
A logical folder structure
All your files organized with user–friendly manner
Each of the files in your web hosting account are separated into folders. Each and every host does have its main directory, which employs the file hierarchy that you’ve defined. In this way, it is really straightforward to handle all of your hosts in one place without any risk of becoming lost or baffled.
By default, you will notice all the hosts conveniently indexed in a table and when you click once on a given host, you’ll see the whole set of sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking on twice, you are going to visit a web page that’s focused entirely on that host only. One other way to open the folder associated with a certain host and also to use it solely, is using the drop–down menu at the top of the primary File Manager file table.

Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest way to protect your details
To password–secure a folder within your web site, you will need to configure an .htaccess file by yourself. Having said that, this is time–demanding and complex if you are not well–trained in web hosting.
