Applied as FTP client substitutes, web file managers have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Still, when using the File Manager included in the My Hunt Host Web Control Panel, you won’t just have a speedy, intuitive and time and effort saving file administration client, but also an app that will make a third party FTP software unnecessary. Consider some of the features that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple method to publish data files
Importing data files with an FTP tool is an out–of–date and really insecure way for transferring files from your desktop machine or laptop to a web server. This is why, we have integrated drag’n’drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Simply pull the files that you want to publish from your desktop computer into your browser and they’ll begin to upload in your website hosting account over a safe SSL communication.
There is no need to mount any additional computer software, browser plug–ins or programs. The drag & drop feature works just as well on Windows, Linux or Mac.

Online file editors
The quickest method to customize your files

A logical folder structure
