Using the Forest City Hosting Website Control Panel, you’ll gain access to our feature–rich File Manager. It’ll enable you to quickly take care of your sites without having to turn to an FTP client. You can publish data files through a risk–free connection by pulling them into the web browser. Also, you can easily archive and unarchive files and directories, set password–protected areas, modify file permissions and a lot more. Take a look at the attributes built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple method to upload data files
Posting files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and really insecure way of transferring files from your desktop machine or notebook to a web hosting server. That’s why, we have included drag–and–drop file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the files that you want to publish from your PC into your web browser and they will start to upload in your web hosting profile over a safe SSL connection.
There is no need to mount any additional software package, browser plug–ins or applications. The drag & drop functionality performs just as well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus
Handle your files with a click
Most File Managers list all the activities which you can carry out on a file or directory on the top of the web page. We believe this is not intuitive enough. Using the File Manager, you can get all of the file managing choices any time you right–click a file or folder. This approach is likewise valid for a number of files/folders.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or directory you decide on with just a click of the mouse.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Distinct from the majority of file management user interfaces and FTP clients, the Forest City Hosting Website Control Panel features a solution to archive/unarchive files more speedily. It is really easy–to–work–with. To get a folder shrunk into a small size, all you need to do is select it and then click the Compress button. To open up the items in an archived directory inside your website hosting account, choose it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager uses a number of file extensions, for example .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
The fastest method to revise your files
The File Manager enables you to edit your files directly on the server never having to download, modify and then re–upload them. It is possible to revise your files directly online, working with the included editors. We provide a code editor provided with syntax emphasizing for your .JS or .PHP files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, and a regular text editor for more expert users.
You can access every single file editor using the right–click context menus. All corrections made to the files will be reflected instantaneously online – you are able to directly preview them within your browser.
A logical folder structure
All your files sorted inside a convenient manner
When you are in charge of a number of websites simultaneously, it’s crucial that you have every little thing arranged. With some other File Managers, modifying a large number of websites in the same web hosting account can be very challenging. Using our File Manager, you’ll see that it’s actually quite easy. Every site features its own directory, which you’ll straight away identify, including all of the files associated with the specific website are located there.
And also to make everything even easier, you will find there’s a drop–down menu where you can quickly choose on which web host you want to work inside the File Manager. Our clever system will lead you there within seconds.

A File Manager designed for real people
Making use of your files is intuitive and hassle–free with the Forest City Hosting Website Control Panel. You are going to have a file managing setting that’s not far from your desktop machine’s file explorer. You’ll be able to drag and drop files and control them with a right mouse–click. When using the integrated preview option, you can see photos exactly like they will appear on the web, and through the in–built file editors you could make corrections for your files immediately.

Work with multiple files
Transform different files all at once
When using the Forest City Hosting File Manager, you’ll be able to select a variety of files or directories precisely like you do on your notebook or computer. Simply press the Control (Command for Mac OS) key and then click the wanted files/folders. If you’d like, to choose a good amount of files/folders at the same time, click on a single file/folder, press the Shift key and click on any other file or folder.
Once you’ve selected all the files that you want to, you can drag them into a distinct location, or use the right–click context menu to check out a summary of the available activities.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest way to guard your details
There is a single standard approach to shield a directory using a security password – by making an .htaccess file. In case, however, you are not technically qualified sufficiently, you’ll have issues executing it by yourself. To generate things simple, we’ve included an intuitive password protection user interface to the File Manager obtainable within the Website Control Panel.
To employ this option, just right–click on a folder and select Password Protection. After that fill in the username as well as the pass word that you’d like to employ and then press the button. That’s all. The chosen folder will be concealed from the standard users and will be accessible only to previously approved account owners.
