Used as FTP software substitutes, web file management tools have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Nonetheless, with the File Manager built in the Dedicated-Hosting Web Site Control Panel, you won’t only employ a speedy, responsive and user–friendly file supervision interface, but also a tool that will make an external FTP software unnecessary. Take a look at a few of the characteristics that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple way to publish files
Importing files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and really unsafe way for moving files from your laptop or computer to a server. Because of this, we have integrated drag’n’drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Simply pull the data files that you need to publish from your desktop into your web browser and they will begin to publish in your website hosting profile over a risk–free SSL connection.
You do not have to mount any extra software pack, browser plug–ins or programs. The drag–and–drop function performs equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
All file administration options readily available
We’ve given our best to make the File Manager as intuitive as it could possibly be, so it is possible to create modifications for your files. Aside from the traditional control bar near the top of the page, we have now in addition added right–click contextual menus with all the simple file administration possibilities. Just click on a file or folder and choose the action you want from the list which will show up.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you decide using a click of the mouse. If you click on a folder, also you can establish a completely new folder or file within it.
The right–click choices are also available when you choose multiple files or folders at once.
Manage huge files incredibly easily
On account of the integrated archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager will let you work with enormous files and not have to use FTP. It is simple to reduce the size of a directory to a compact size by simply clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the items in an archived folder through the Extract button. When compressing a directory or a couple of files, you’ll be able to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) in addition to the title of the archive file.
Online file editors
The quickest method to customize your files
Dedicated-Hosting’s File Manager enables you to revise your files entirely on the web server without the need to download, transform and after that re–upload them. It is possible to adjust your files straight away on the Internet, applying the built–in editors. We provide you with a code editor with syntax displaying for your .PHP or .JS files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, plus a regular text editor for the more experienced end users.
You can access every file editor through the right–click contextual menus. All of the adjusts produced to the files are shown promptly online – it is easy to directly preview them in your browser.
A logical folder structure
All your files sorted in an uncomplicated manner
The File Manager shows all files and directories in a clear and understandable alphabetical order. All of the files pertaining to the different hosts are structured into separate directories which are named following their particular domain names, allowing you to quickly recognize them. This is really useful when you are controlling several sites concurrently. There’s no probability to stray or to feel really confused amidst the many data files and folders with your web hosting account.
To gain access to the files under a given host, just pick it within the drop–down options menu at the top of the file table. Alternatively, it is possible to double–click on its folder and you will be quickly taken to a table showing its files only.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager made for the general public
Most online File Managers are slow and quite difficult to use. They have limited possibilities and certainly are not really simple to use. We strive to transform that with the Dedicated-Hosting File Manager. It’s made to be user–friendly and to resemble an item you you are already familiar with – the File Manager on your personal computer system.
All of its features, the drag & drop file upload options, the right–click context menus, the built–in file editors, etcetera are available for just one reason – to help make managing your site(s) simpler.
Work with multiple files
Modify different files at the same time
You can manage a multitude of files all at once when using the multi–selection capability of the Dedicated-Hosting File Manager. What you need to do is simply hold down the Control key and then click on the files or directories you want to pick. Should you wish to pick a pair of files/folders in a row immediately, click the first file/folder, hold down the Shift key and then click on the last file or folder in the selection.
For those who have chosen the required files/folders, you can either drag them to a distinct place, or employ diverse actions to them making use of right–click context menu or maybe the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to shield your data
If you would like to password–protect a folder on your web site, you have got to configure an .htaccess file manually. However, this can be time–consuming and complicated if you aren’t a professional in website hosting. Using our File Manager, you can create a password–protected directory and hide all its items from the public eye with just a number of clicks.
What you need to undertake is right–click a directory, pick out Password Protection and afterwards click the Add option. And then simply state a user name and also a password. No extra configuration is necessary and there is no reason to handle an .htaccess file. Our system will handle every little thing on your behalf.
