Used as FTP software alternatives, online file management tools have always been slow and poorly featured. Yet, using the File Manager included in the SpitfireHost.com Web Control Panel, you won’t just have a rapid, intuitive and user–friendly file managing software, but also an application that will make an external FTP application unneeded. Consider a few of the characteristics that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Move data files to your webpages without any difficulty
The File Manager in your Web Control Panel includes a swift, drag–and–drop feature that will allow you to transfer files between your PC and your website hosting account without having to employ an FTP client. You can easily drag data files from your computer and drop them in your Web Control Panel with a click of the mouse using a protected SSL connection.
The drag’n’drop function is included in the Web Control Panel, therefore, you do not need to set up any third–party software pack to take full advantage of it. It also works well on all popular Os’s, so all you have to do to use it is log into your File Manager.
Right–click context menus

On account of the right–click menus we’ve included on the File Manager, you can alter your files in a time and effort saving manner. Simply click on a file or directory and with the panel which will show up, pick the action that you want. You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any chosen file. When you click on a folder, you will also see the option to establish a brand new sub–folder or file inside.
If you select multiple files or folders, it is possible to use the exact same procedures to all of them simultaneously.
Manage substantial files conveniently
Due to the integrated archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager enables you to handle big files without having to use FTP. It’s easy to shrink a folder into a lightweight size by simply clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the items in an archived folder through the Extract button. When compressing a directory or multiple files, you can also select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and the title of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
Change files from your Web Control Panel
With the File Manager you can easily alter your files instantly online working with the built–in software tools. The text editor reveals the files in a plain text format, the code editor features syntax displaying for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor lets you to see your changes as they show up online. All the changes you create and save can be reflected straight away on the Internet, which enables you to review them within your Internet browser and go back to create more modifications, in case you are not happy with the result.
There’s no need to download any files whatsoever, to modify them with your personal computer and then to re–upload them back in your hosting account. All of the editors are available via the buttons at the top of the file table or from the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured with an intuitive approach
When you’re managing a bunch of sites concurrently, it’s highly recommendable for you to have everything arranged.

Each site features its own directory, that you’ll straight away recognize, including all of the files associated with the specified site are found there.
And to make things even easier, you will find a drop–down menu from which it’s easy to select on exactly which web host you intend to work inside the File Manager. Our clever system will lead you there in seconds.
