Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web–based file managers have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Yet, using the File Manager featured in the Midas 1 Hosting Web Site Control Panel, you will not only employ a speedy, intuitive and easy–to–use file managing client, but also an application that will make an external FTP software unnecessary. Have a look at some of the options that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least difficult way to add data files
Posting data files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and really insecure way of transporting data files from your computer to a web hosting server. By reason of this, we have integrated drag’n’drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the data files that you want to upload from your desktop into your browser and they’ll start to upload in your web hosting account through a protected SSL communication.
You don’t have to install any extra computer software, browser extensions or apps. The drag & drop function works just as well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus
Handle all files with a mouse–click
The majority of File Managers include all the activities that one can execute with a file or directory at the top of the webpage. We believe the latter is just not intuitive enough. Using the File Manager, you can access all of the file control options when you right–click a file or folder. This option is likewise applicable for numerous files/folders.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you select with simply a click of the mouse.

When compressing a directory or a selection of files, it is possible to choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) in addition to the title of the archive file.

A logical folder structure
