Used as FTP software substitutes, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Nevertheless, with the File Manager built in the DSF Hosting Online Control Panel, you won’t just employ a fast, responsive and easy–to–work–with file administration interface, but also an app that will make a 3rd party FTP program unneeded. Take a look at several of the options that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least difficult way to add data files
Posting data files with an FTP tool is an outdated and really insecure way for switching data files from your desktop machine or notebook to a web hosting server. That’s why, we have integrated drag & drop file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the data files that you need to publish from your desktop computer into your Internet browser and they will begin to publish in your web hosting account over a protected SSL communication.
There is no need to set up any extra software package, browser add–ons or apps. The drag & drop function performs equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Handle all files with a mouse–click
A large number of File Managers list all the activities that one can carry out on a file or directory on the top of the page. We believe the latter isn’t user–friendly enough. Using the File Manager, you can get all file administration choices when you right–click a file or directory. This approach is likewise applicable for a group of files/folders.
You can actually rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or folder you decide on with just a mouse–click.

The File Manager shows all files and folders using an easy–to–understand alphabetical order. Each of the files associated with the different hosts are sorted within independent folders which are referred to as after their individual domain names, which enables you to instantly identify them. This really is useful when you are controlling a lot of different web sites simultaneously.
