Applied as FTP client alternatives, web–based file managers have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Nevertheless, with the File Manager featured in the Cold Bear Hosting Web Hosting Control Panel, you will not only have a quick, intuitive and user–friendly file management software, but also an app that will make a third–party FTP application unnecessary. Have a look at some of the capabilities that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Publish data files without trouble
Moving files between your desktop machine and any of your webpages is now quick and simple, because of the drag’n’drop option delivered by the File Manager. You can pull files from your desktop computer or laptop and drop them in your Web Hosting Control Panel via secure SSL connection. That’s it. It requires a few seconds to add a data file and a bit longer for any larger data files and directories.
There’s no need to set up any third party computer software or web browser plugins. The drag & drop capability included in the File Manager works just as well on all main OS’s.
Right–click context menus
Control all of your with just a click of the mouse
The majority of File Managers include all the activities which you can perform over a file or directory at the top of the web page. We feel this is just not user–friendly enough. With the File Manager, you can get all file administration choices at the time you right–click a file or folder. This method is likewise applicable for multiple files/folders.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or folder you decide on using a mouse–click.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Not like a large number of file management interfaces as well as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the Cold Bear Hosting Web Hosting Control Panel features a solution to archive/unarchive files considerably faster. It is easy–to–navigate. To get a directory shrunk to a compact size, simply choose it and then click the Compress button. To unwrap the contents of an archived folder inside your account, select it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager supports a number of file extensions, just like .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Revise files directly from your Web Hosting Control Panel
From the File Manager you’ll be able to revise your files instantly online making use of any of the included software instruments. The text editor reveals the files in a plain text file format, the code editor has syntax accentuating for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor allows you to view your edits while they show up live. Furthermore, all changes you generate and keep will be reflected instantly online, which enables you to examine them with your Internet browser and get back to make extra modifications, if unhappy.
You do not have to download your files, to modify them in your desktop computer and then to re–upload them into your cloud hosting account. All the editors are available through the buttons near the top of the file table or through the right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
Your files structured with an uncomplicated way
The File Manager displays all files and folders in a clear and understandable alphabetical order. All the files pertaining to the different hosts are sorted within different directories which are titled following their respective domain names, so you can immediately acknowledge them. This really is useful when you are managing a couple of websites simultaneously. There isn’t any probability to get lost or to feel baffled among the multitude of data files and folders with your account.
To gain access to the files with a specific host, just pick it within the drop–down options menu at the top of the file table. Alternatively, you’ll be able to double–click on its folder and you will be instantaneously taken to a table listing its files only.
A user–friendly interface
Command your data with simply a mouse–click
The Cold Bear Hosting File Manager was developed in such a manner as to make you feel similarly to using the file explorer on your computer system. It has a way to drag your files and then to drop them with a desired area and reveals all of the readily available edit options on clicking the right computer mouse button. At the same time, the tool features an integrated file preview option and other file editors that can help you revise your files instantly straight from your Web Hosting Control Panel.
Furthermore, we’ve provided a couple of file management posts and how–to instructional videos to guide you to rather quickly find out how to make use of the tool.

Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to guard your data
There is one popular path to secure a directory using a password – by creating an .htaccess file. In case, however, you’re not technologically qualified enough, you will have issues doing it without any help. To make things simple, we have added an easy–to–use password protection user interface to the File Manager available inside the Web Hosting Control Panel.
To employ the option, just right–click on a folder and choose Password Protection. Then fill in the username as well as the pass word that you’d like to apply and click on the button. That’s it.
