Applied as FTP client substitutes, web–based file management tools have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Nonetheless, when using the File Manager built in the hostingdad Web Control Panel, you won’t only employ a rapid, intuitive and user–friendly file supervision software, but also an app that will make a third–party FTP software unneeded. Take a look at a few of the functions that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Upload data files effortlessly
Transferring data files between your PC and any of your sites is now quick and easy, thanks to the drag’n’drop functionality offered by the File Manager. You can pull data files from your notebook or computer and drop them in the Web Control Panel via secure SSL connection. That’s all. It requires seconds to publish a data file and a bit longer for the bigger files and directories.
It is not necessary to deploy any third party software or browser add–ons. The drag–and–drop capability contained in the File Manager works just as well on all popular OS’s.
Right–click context menus
All of the file management options readily available
We’ve aimed to make your File Manager as intuitive as it could possibly be, so you are able to make modifications for your files. Apart from the typical control bar near the top of the page, we have now additionally included right–click context menus with all the current common file managing options. Just click on a file or folder and choose the action which you want through the collection which will turn up.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide with simply a click of the mouse. When you click a folder, you should also establish a new directory or file inside it.
The right–click choice is also available if you pick numerous files or folders at once.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Not like the majority of file management user interfaces and FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the hostingdad Web Control Panel provides an option to archive/unarchive files way quicker. It is well–designed. To get a directory reduced to a lightweight size, just select it and then click the Compress button. To open up the items in an archived folder inside your cloud hosting account, choose it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager works with numerous file extensions, including .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Integrated file editors
Zero third party applications are necessary
We’ve enclosed a pair of file editors inside the Web Control Panel to guide you to create quick and easy corrections for your files without having to employ any third–party software packages. With the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that will help check any changes you make right away, a code editor that features syntax emphasizing for your personal .PHP or .JS files, as well as a plain text editor for more experienced users. All the changes that you create and keep will be shown automatically online.
You have access to the file editors when using the buttons at the top of the file table and / or by right–clicking a particular file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All of your files organized with an intuitive way
All the files inside your website hosting account are arranged into folders. Each and every web host does have its primary folder, which employs the file structure which you have created. By doing this, it is simple to manage all of your hosts from one location without probability of getting lost or puzzled.
By default, you will notice all of the hosts conveniently contained in a table and when you mouse–click once on a given host, you’ll see each of the sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking twice, you will go to a page that’s dedicated to that host exclusively. One other way to load the folder related to a given host and then to use it solely, is by using the drop–down menu at the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager created for the general public
The majority of web File Managers are slow–moving and tricky to use. They give you reduced possibilities and certainly are not really user–friendly. We aim to change that by means of the hostingdad File Manager. It’s developed to be intuitive and also to look like an item you already know – the File Manager on your personal computer.
All of its capabilities, the drag & drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the built–in file editors, etcetera are available for a single reason – to create controlling your website(s) easier.
Work with multiple files
Adjust different files concurrently
When using the hostingdad File Manager, you can easily select many files or directories just like you do on your PC. Simply press the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and then click the desired files/folders. In case you would like, to choose a considerable amount of files/folders at the same time, click on a single file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any other file or folder.
After you have picked all the files that you’ll require, it’s possible to drag them into a pre–selected directory, or take advantage of the right–click contextual menu to find out an index of the accessible features.
1–click password protection options
The ultimate way to protect your information
Password protection is the foremost method to limit the means to access a given section of your website that you do not want to be observable to every one. For example, this might be a safe and secure members’ spot or, perhaps an area with copyrighted information that you want just a number of individuals to access.
From the File Manager you’re able to password–secure your site or maybe a specified directory within it with a click of the mouse. Simply right–click a directory, pick Password Protection and submit your username and then password. You do not have to take care of .htaccess files or to create any additional configurations. From now on, just the site visitors which have your username and password will gain access to your site.
