Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software substitutes, web file managers have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Nonetheless, when using the File Manager featured in the Small Business Hosting Hosting Control Panel, you won’t just have a quick, responsive and easy–to–work–with file management software, but also an application that will make an external FTP application unnecessary. Have a look at a few of the features that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Transfer files to your sites easily
The File Manager in your Hosting Control Panel includes a swift, drag–and–drop function that can help you transfer data files between your computer and your hosting account without the need to work with an FTP tool. You could pull data files from your personal computer and drop them in your Hosting Control Panel with a mouse–click by using a secure SSL connection.
The drag’n’drop feature is integrated into the Hosting Control Panel, therefore, you don’t have to deploy any third party software package to use it. It also works well on all major Operating Systems, so all you should do to employ it is log into your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
Manage all of your with merely a click
A large number of File Managers include all the actions you can execute over a file or directory on the top of the webpage. We think the latter is not properly arranged. Thanks to the File Manager, you can get all of the file control choices whenever you right–click a file or directory. This approach is likewise applicable for numerous files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide on with only a mouse–click.
Maintain archives with a mouse–click
The File Manager is designed with an inbuilt archive/unarchive option to help you to upload huge archives and extract them in your cloud hosting account in the blink of an eye. When compressing a file or directory, it will be easy to decide on the name for the archive that is to be created and its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. In addition, it’s possible to compress active files or folders with simply a click of the mouse.
The archive/unarchive alternative available from the File Manager helps you to make use of huge files straight from your Hosting Control Panel. You don’t have to employ any third party software like an FTP client so as to upload a large file onto your cloud hosting account or download any archive to your desktop.
Integrated file editors
Absolutely no third–party programs are required
We have integrated a pair of file editors within the Hosting Control Panel to assist you to come up with quick and easy adjusts to your files without having to implement third–party apps. Within the File Manager you will find a WYSIWYG editor that will help check any changes that you create immediately, a code editor that has syntax accentuating for your .JS or .PHP files, as well as a plain text editor for more experienced users. All the changes which you create and save can be demonstrated promptly online.
You can access the file editors making use of the buttons near the top of the file table as well as by right–clicking a given file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All your files organized inside a convenient–to–use way
If you are handling a great number of sites concurrently, it’s crucial that you have everything sorted out. With other File Managers, revising a lot of web sites in the exact same website hosting account is extremely tricky. Using the File Manager, you’ll see that it’s actually really simple. Every single web site has its own directory, which you can quickly acknowledge, including all of the files pertaining to the specified web site are found there.
And also to make things even easier, you will find a drop–down menu from which you can quickly choose on exactly which web host you wish to work in the File Manager. Our smart system will take you there within seconds.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager devised for people
The majority of web File Managers are slow and hard to make use of. They offer modest functions and typically are not really straightforward. We aim to transform that by means of the Small Business Hosting File Manager. It was intended to be time and effort saving and to appear like a product you are already well aware of – the File Manager on your desktop.
All its capabilities, the drag’n’drop file upload options, the right–click context menus, the internal file editors, etc. are there for a single purpose – to create managing your web site(s) less difficult.
Work with multiple files
Modify a number of files all at once
Using the Small Business Hosting File Manager, you can actually choose multiple files or folders exactly like you do on your laptop or computer. Just hold down the Control (Command for Mac) key and click on the wanted files/folders. If you would like, to choose a large amount of files/folders at the same time, just click one file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any other file or folder.
After you have picked all the files that you want to, you can drag them into a pre–selected folder, or take advantage of the right–click context menu to find out an index of the available actions.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to secure your data
There is a single common way for you to shield a folder using a password – by creating an .htaccess file. If, however, you are not technically qualified sufficiently, you will have difficulties executing it without any help. For making things straightforward, we have added an easy–to–use password protection interface to the File Manager available within the Hosting Control Panel.
To make use of this option, just right–click on a directory and choose Password Protection. After that set the user name plus the security password that you like to employ and click on the button. That’s all. Now the chosen directory is undetectable from the public eye and will be accessible to authorized account holders.
