Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The simplest approach to add data files
Adding data files with an FTP client is an obsolete and really insecure method for relocating files from your PC to a web server. By reason of this, we have included drag & drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Just pull the data files that you want to publish from your PC into your browser and they’ll start to upload in your website hosting profile over a secure SSL communication.
You do not have to set up any additional computer software, browser extensions or apps. The drag & drop capability performs equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Control your files with only a click of the mouse
The majority of File Managers include all of the actions that you can carry out on a file or folder at the top of the page. We feel that this is not intuitive enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you can access all file management options at the time you right–click a file or folder. This method is likewise valid for many different files/folders.
It’s possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or directory you decide on with a mouse–click.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Unlike most file management user interfaces as well as FTP clients, the Owl Hosting Web Control Panel boasts a way to archive/unarchive files more speedily. It is really easy to use. To have a directory shrunk to a lightweight size, all you need to do is choose it and click on the Compress button.

The File Manager works with a range of file extensions, such as .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Change files directly from your Web Control Panel
From the File Manager you can easily alter your files directly on the Internet by making use of any of the inbuilt instruments. The text editor displays the files with a plain text format, the code editor provides syntax accentuating for your .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor lets you to see your edits as they appear online. Furthermore, all changes that you make and keep will be reflected at once on the web, meaning you can review them with your web browser and get back to generate more changes, if you are not happy with the result.

A logical folder structure
All your files organized in a convenient manner
When you are working with a lot of different web sites concurrently, it’s crucial for you to have everything arranged. With many other File Managers, updating a lot of websites inside the exact same website hosting account can be extremely tricky. Using the File Manager, you’ll find that it is in fact really simple. Every single website does have its own directory, that you can instantly acknowledge, and all of the files pertaining to the specific website are placed there.

Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to shield your information
There’s one popular technique to shield a folder with a security password – by making an .htaccess file. In case, however, you’re not technologically skilled sufficiently, you’ll have difficulty doing the work by yourself. To help make things simple, we’ve included an easy–to–navigate password protection interface to the File Manager accessible within the Web Control Panel.
