Used as FTP software alternatives, online file management tools have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Nonetheless, using the File Manager featured in the hostingfreespace Website Control Panel, you won’t only have a fast, responsive and user–friendly file management software, but also an app that will make a 3rd party FTP software unnecessary. Consider several of the options that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most straightforward way to upload files
Importing data files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and really insecure way for transmitting data files from your personal computer to a hosting server. That’s why, we have included drag–and–drop file publish support in the File Manager. Just drag the data files that you need to upload from your desktop into your browser and they will begin to publish in your web hosting account over a protected SSL communication.
There is no need to deploy any additional software package, browser extensions or web apps. The drag–and–drop capability works just as well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Manage all files with just a click
The majority of File Managers specify all the activities you can execute with a file or folder on the top of the page. We believe this is just not user–friendly enough. Using the File Manager, you have access to all of the file managing options when you right–click a file or folder. This approach is likewise valid for a group of files/folders.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or folder you choose with merely a mouse–click.
Manage huge files incredibly easily
Due to the integrated archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager allows you to make use of big files without having to use FTP. You’re able to shrink a folder into a small size by simply clicking on the Compress button or get the contents of an archived directory using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or multiple files, you are able to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and the title of the archive file.
Integrated file editors
No third party software packages are needed
We’ve integrated a pair of file editors in the Website Control Panel to help you generate quick and simple corrections to your files and never having to implement third–party apps. Inside the File Manager there is also a WYSIWYG editor that can assist you keep an eye on all the current changes you create in real time, a code editor that boasts syntax highlighting for one’s .PHP or .JS files, as well as a plain text editor for more experienced customers. Any changes that you create and save are going to be demonstrated instantly on the web.
You have access to the file editors using the buttons at the top of the file table as well as by right–clicking a given file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All your files sorted out inside an intuitive way
When you’re handling a multitude of websites simultaneously, it is essential that you have everything sorted. With other File Managers, revising several websites within the same web hosting account can be very tricky. Using our File Manager, you will find that it’s in fact quite easy. Each website has its own folder, that you’ll at once acknowledge, including all of the files associated with the specific site are located there.
And also to make everything so much easier, you will find a drop–down menu from where you can quickly choose on exactly which web host you would like to work inside the File Manager. Our clever system will take you there in seconds.
