Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most straightforward method to add files

You don’t need to set up any extra software package, web browser plug–ins or applications. The drag–and–drop feature works just as well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Manage your files with a click of the mouse
The majority of File Managers include all the activities that one can carry out within a file or folder on the top of the page. We think that the latter is not intuitive enough. Using the File Manager, you have access to all file administration options whenever you right–click a file or folder. This method is also applicable for numerous files/folders.
You can actually rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or directory you decide with only a mouse–click.

To unwrap the items in an archived directory within your account, choose it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager works with numerous file extensions, including .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.

A logical folder structure
All of your files arranged in a simple to use manner
All the files in your web hosting account are separated into folders. Every web host has its own primary directory, that uses the file structure that you’ve pre–set. By doing this, it is very easy to deal with all your hosts from a single place without any risk of getting lost or perplexed.
By default, you will notice each of the hosts mentioned in a table and when you mouse–click once over a specific host, you will see each of the sub–folders and files pertaining to it. By clicking two times, you will visit a page that’s focused entirely on that host only. A different way to load the folder associated with a particular host and also to use it exclusively, 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 intended for regular people
The vast majority of web File Managers are slow and challenging to apply. They have limited functions and certainly are not really simple to use. We hope to transform that with the American Host Land, Inc. File Manager. It is created to be user–friendly and to resemble an item you are already well aware of – the File Manager on your computer.
