Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. However, with the File Manager included in the Gleam Hosting Hosting Control Panel, you will not only employ a fast, intuitive and user–friendly file administration software, but also an application that will make a 3rd party FTP application unneeded. Have a look at several of the characteristics that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add files easily
Transferring data files between your desktop machine and any of your webpages is right now quick and simple, because of the drag & drop functionality provided by the File Manager. You can easily drag data files from your desktop machine or laptop and drop them in the Hosting Control Panel through a secure SSL communication. That’s all. It usually takes a few seconds to upload a data file and slightly longer for the larger files and folders.

Right–click context menus
Manage all files with a click of the mouse
The vast majority of File Managers list all the activities that you can execute on a file or directory on the top of the page. We think that this is not intuitive enough. Using the File Manager, you have access to all file administration options at the time you right–click a file or folder. This option is also valid for a group of files/folders.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide with merely a mouse–click.

The File Manager is equipped with a built–in archive/unarchive solution that will help you upload big archives and extract them inside your account within seconds. Once compressing a file or directory, you will be able to decide on the name of the archive that will be created and its particular extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Additionally, you are able to compress active files or folders with only a click of the mouse.
The archive/unarchive solution offered by the File Manager really helps to work with substantial files directly from your Hosting Control Panel. No need to start using any third–party software such as an FTP client so as to upload a huge file onto your hosting account or to download any archive on your desktop.

Any changes you make and keep can be reflected instantaneously on the web.
You can access the file editors using the buttons near the top of the file table and / or by right–clicking a specific file/folder.
A logical folder structure
Your files organized in an easy–to–use way
The File Manager shows all files and directories in a clear to see alphabetical arrangement. Each of the files associated with the different hosts are arranged within separate directories that are named following their individual domain names, which enables you to immediately acknowledge them. This is actually useful in controlling a group of web sites concurrently.
