Applied as FTP software substitutes, online file management tools have always been slow and poor in features. However, using the File Manager integrated in the BRANDLIFE Hosting Online Control Panel, you will not only have a blazingly fast, intuitive and easy–to–use file managing software, but also an app that will make a third–party FTP application unneeded. Have a look at some of the characteristics that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Publish data files with ease
Transferring files between your desktop computer and any of your websites is right now quick and simple, because of the drag & drop feature available from the File Manager. You can drag files from your desktop computer or laptop and drop them in your Online Control Panel over a secure SSL connection. That’s it. It requires a few seconds to upload a data file and slightly longer for bigger data files and folders.
You don’t have to install any third–party application or web browser plug–ins. The drag’n’drop capability contained in the File Manager operates equally well on all main operating systems.
Right–click context menus
Handle your files with a click
The majority of File Managers include all of the actions that you can conduct with a file or folder on the top of the webpage. We feel the latter is just not intuitive enough. With the File Manager, you can access all file management choices at the time you right–click a file or folder. This option is also valid for many different files/folders.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you select with merely a mouse–click.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
As opposed to a large number of file management interfaces as well as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the BRANDLIFE Hosting Online Control Panel has a solution to archive/unarchive files considerably quicker. It is really easy to use. To have a folder reduced into a lightweight size, just select it and then click the Compress button. To open up the contents of an archived directory inside your website hosting account, choose it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager works with several different file extensions, which include .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Integrated file editors
No third party software packs are required
We have integrated a set of file editors in the Online Control Panel to guide you produce quick and easy corrections for your files without the need to implement third–party software. Within the File Manager there is also a WYSIWYG editor that can help you monitor all the changes you make in real time, a code editor that boasts syntax highlighting for your personal .JS or .PHP files, as well as a plain text editor for more competent users. Any changes that you create and save will be demonstrated quickly on the web.
You have access to the file editors using the buttons near the top of the file table or by right–clicking any file/folder.
A logical folder structure
Your files sorted out with a convenient manner
When you are in charge of a great number of websites simultaneously, it is crucial for you to have every little thing arranged. With many other File Managers, modifying a large number of sites inside the same hosting account can be quite tricky. With the File Manager, you’ll see that it is in fact quite easy. Every site has its own folder, that you can straight away acknowledge, and all the files related to the given web site are placed there.
And then to make things so much easier, you will find there’s a drop–down navigation from which you can quickly choose on which web host you intend to work inside the File Manager. Our smart system will lead you there within seconds.

1–click password protection options
The easiest way to guard your information
Password protection is the greatest way for you to confine the accessibility to a particular component of your site you do not wish to be noticeable to every one. For instance, this could be a safe members’ area or even a location with copyrighted information that you would like only particular people to view.
From your File Manager it is easy to password–protect your site as well as a specified directory inside it with a mouse–click. Simply right–click a folder, select Password Protection and select your login name and then password. There is no need to deal with .htaccess files or come up with any other adjustments.
