Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software substitutes, web file managers have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Nonetheless, with the File Manager featured in the Nashville Web Hosting Control Panel, you won’t just have a speedy, responsive and user–friendly file management software, but also a tool that will make an external FTP software unneeded. Check out several of the features that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated method to add data files

That’s why, we have integrated drag’n’drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Simply drag the data files that you need to publish from your computer into your web browser and they’ll begin to publish in your website hosting profile over a risk–free SSL communication.
You do not have to set up any extra software pack, browser extensions or web apps. The drag–and–drop feature performs equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Find all of the easily accessible file control options with a click
Because of the right–click menus we have included on the File Manager, you will be able to manage your files easier than ever. Click on a file or folder and with the panel which will pop up, opt for the action that you would like.

If you click on a folder, you can also view the option to make a different sub–folder or file inside.
If you select multiple files or folders, it’s possible to use the exact same measures for all of them at the same time.
