Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most straightforward way to publish data files
Submitting data files with an FTP client is an obsolete and quite an insecure way for transferring data files from your desktop computer or laptop to a hosting server. For this reason, we have included drag’n’drop file publish support in the File Manager. Simply pull the data files that you want to upload from your desktop computer into your Internet browser and they’ll start to publish in your website hosting profile over a risk–free SSL communication.
You do not have to deploy any extra software, browser extensions or programs. The drag–and–drop functionality works equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Control your files with a mouse–click
A large number of File Managers include all of the activities you can execute on a file or directory on the top of the webpage. We believe the latter isn’t intuitive enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you can get all of the file management options whenever you right–click a file or folder. This method is likewise applicable for different files/folders.
It’s possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide with simply a click of the mouse.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Compared to most file management user interfaces and FTP clients, the Step2Rays Hosting Web Hosting Control Panel offers a way to archive/unarchive files more speedily. It is really user–friendly and uncomplicated. To have a folder shrunk to a compact size, just pick it and then click the Compress button. To unwrap the contents of an archived directory in your account, choose it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager supports several different file extensions, for example .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
The quickest way to update your files
The File Manager makes it possible for you to edit your files on the server never having to download, modify and re–upload them. It is possible to revise your files straight away on the Internet, by making use of our internal editors. We provide a code editor equipped with syntax displaying for your .JS or .PHP files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, plus a regular text editor for the more expert users.
You have access to each file editor when using the right–click contextual menus. All of the corrections made to the files are reflected promptly online – you are able to directly examine them in your browser.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured in an easy–to–use manner
When you’re managing a number of sites concurrently, it’s crucial that you have every little thing sorted. With other File Managers, editing a large number of sites within the same website hosting account is extremely difficult. With the File Manager, you will find that it’s actually rather easy. Each web site features its own directory, which you can at once acknowledge, and all the files related to the specific web site can be found there.
And then to make everything even easier, we have a drop–down navigation from where you can quickly choose on which host you intend to work in the File Manager. Our clever system will lead you there in seconds.

1–click password protection options
The simplest way to secure your data
Password protection is the perfect technique to limit the accessibility to a particular part of your web site that you do not plan to be noticeable to everyone. For instance, this can be a safe members’ place or even an area with copyrighted data that you like only particular customers to access.
