Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software substitutes, web file management tools have always been slow and poorly featured. Yet, using the File Manager integrated in the Web Hosting Indy Online Control Panel, you won’t just have a speedy, responsive and easy–to–use file management software, but also a software tool that will make a 3rd party FTP application unneeded. Consider a few of the functions that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple method to add data files

By reason of this, we have included drag’n’drop file upload support in the File Manager. Just drag the data files that you want to publish from your desktop into your Internet browser and they’ll start to publish in your web hosting account over a risk–free SSL connection.
You don’t need to deploy any extra software package, web browser add–ons or apps. The drag–and–drop capability performs just as well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
Manage all files with a click of the mouse
The majority of File Managers include all the activities you can carry out within a file or directory on the top of the page. We think the latter is not user–friendly enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you can access all of the file administration options any time you right–click a file or directory. This approach is likewise valid for numerous files/folders.

Due to the inbuilt archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager helps you to use huge files without having to use FTP. It’s possible to shrink a directory into a compact size by simply clicking on the Compress button or access the contents of an archived folder using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or multiple files, it is also possible to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and then the name of the archive file.

If you are managing a variety of web sites simultaneously, it’s essential that you have everything sorted out.
