Softxaa’s managed cloud and managed VPS hosting packages come with our in-house-made web hosting control panel HostPanel management system. This is to ensure that you can manage everything related to your hosting account from an easy-to-use control panel without the need to pay additional licensing fees.
File Manager is an integral part of Softxaa’s HostPanel. You might think that its only advantage over a regular FTP client is the ability to manage files and directories through a browser window, but the fact of the matter is, it has a few other handy features that can be extremely useful in some situations.
Upload and extract a ZIP archive using HostPanel’s File Manager
With HostPanel’s File Manager, uploading and extracting a ZIP archive is a two-click process. Here’s what you need to do:
- Log in to HostPanel’s user interface and open File Manager. The default HostPanel login URL is https://domain.com/hostpanel (be sure to replace domain.com with your actual domain) File Manager is available under the Files section on HostPanel’s homepage.
- Navigate to the folder where you want to place the extracted file. Navigating through folders in your HostPanel is similar to navigating files on your local computer.
- Click Upload > Upload Zip. HostPanel’s file manager gives you two options: simply upload the archive or upload and automatically extract the data. If you choose the first option, you can unzip the archive by right-clicking on it and selecting Extract.
