Used as FTP software substitutes, web–based file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in features. However, with the File Manager included in the apluschoice Hosting Control Panel, you will not only have a blazingly fast, responsive and time and effort saving file management client, but also an application that will make a 3rd party FTP program unnecessary. Have a look at several of the characteristics that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Move data files to your web pages with ease
The File Manager in your Hosting Control Panel features a quick, drag–and–drop capability that will allow you to move files between your PC and your web hosting account with no need to apply an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client. You can easily pull files from your personal computer and drop them in your Hosting Control Panel with a mouse–click using a secure SSL connection.
The drag’n’drop characteristic is included in the Hosting Control Panel, which means you don’t have to mount any third–party software to employ it. It also works well on all popular Os’s, so all you have to do to apply it is log into your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
Check out the whole set of readily available file administration options with only a click
Thanks to the right–click menus we have included in the File Manager, you’ll be able to revise your files incredibly easy. Simply click on a file or folder and with the panel which will appear, pick the activity that you like. It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete virtually any chosen file. Should you click a folder, you will also view the option to generate a brand new sub–folder or file inside.
If you choose numerous files or folders, it’s possible to apply the same procedures to all of them concurrently.
Manage huge files effortlessly
Thanks to the built in archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager enables you to manage big files without the need to use FTP. You’ll be able to pack a directory into a lightweight size by clicking on the Compress button or get the belongings in an archived directory using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a folder as well as a list of files, it is also possible to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and then the name of the archive file.
Online file editors
The quickest way to update your files
apluschoice’s File Manager will let you change your files on the hosting server and never have to download, change and then re–upload them. It’s possible to revise your files instantly on the Internet, using our built–in editors. Our company offers a code editor provided with syntax highlighting for your .JS or .PHP files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, and also a regular text editor for the more experienced customers.
You have access to each file editor using the right–click contextual menus. All of the corrections made to the files appear at once online – you can directly preview them in the browser.
A logical folder structure
All of your files structured in a user–friendly manner
The File Manager shows all files and folders in a clear and understandable alphabetical order. All of the files related to the various hosts are organized inside independent directories which are titled following their particular domain names, so it’s possible to quite easily identify them. This really is useful when you are controlling different websites concurrently. There isn’t any possibility to get lost or to feel really baffled among the plethora of files and folders inside your account.
To gain access to the files within a host, simply choose it from the drop–down menu at the top of the file table. As an alternative, it’s possible to double–click on its directory and you are automatically transported to a table listing its files only.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager meant for the people
The vast majority of web File Managers are slow and tricky to use. They offer constrained functions and aren’t really intuitive. We hope to improve that through the apluschoice File Manager. It’s made to be intuitive and to seem like an item you already know – the File Manager on your PC.
All its attributes, the drag–and–drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the built–in file editors, etc. are available for a single reason – to help make taking care of your web site(s) a lot easier.
Work with multiple files
Adjust multiple files at the same time
With the apluschoice File Manager, you’ll be able to choose different files or directories exactly like you do on your laptop or computer. Just hold down the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and click on the desired files/folders. In case you would like, to select a lot of files/folders at once, click a single file/folder, hold down the Shift key and then click any file or folder.
Once you have selected all the files that you’ll require, you can drag them into a pre–selected location, or make use of the right–click context menu to view an index of the available actions.
1–click password protection options
The easiest way to secure your details
Password protection is the greatest method to reduce the ability to access an important section of your website that you do not need to be noticeable to every one. As an example, this can be a safe and secure members’ area or a location with copyrighted data that you like just specific customers to view.
From your File Manager you’re able to password–guard your site or a specific directory inside it with a click of the mouse. Just right–click a folder, select Password Protection and specify the user name and pass word. There’s no need to manage .htaccess files or to make any additional configurations. From now on, simply the website visitors which have your username and password will be able to access your site.
