Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client substitutes, online file management tools have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Nevertheless, when using the File Manager built in the Cloud Hosting Ltd Control Panel, you will not only employ a speedy, responsive and user–friendly file administration interface, but also an instrument that will make a third–party FTP program unneeded. Take a look at a few of the options that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The easiest way to add files
Adding data files with an FTP tool is an out–of–date and quite an insecure way for moving files from your laptop or computer to a web server. This is why, we have integrated drag & drop file publish support in the File Manager. Just drag the files that you want to publish from your computer into your web browser and they’ll start to upload in your web hosting profile through a safe SSL communication.
You do not have to mount any additional computer software, browser add–ons or apps. The drag–and–drop functionality performs just as well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Virtually all file managing possibilities at your fingertips
We’ve always given our best to make the File Manager as intuitive as it could possibly be, so it is possible to generate adjustments to your files. Aside from the typical control bar towards the top of the page, we have now in addition introduced right–click contextual menus with all the basic file managing options. Simply click on a file or directory and choose the activity that you want within the selection which will appear.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you decide on using a mouse–click. In the event you click on a directory, you can also create a brand new folder or file within it.
The right–click choices are conveniently obtainable any time you choose many different files or folders simultaneously.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Distinct from the vast majority of file management interfaces as well as FTP clients, the Cloud Hosting Ltd Control Panel offers a way to archive/unarchive files more speedily. It is really uncomplicated. To get a directory reduced to a lightweight size, all you need to do is choose it and click on the Compress button. To unwrap the contents of an archived folder in your account, select it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager uses many file extensions, including .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Integrated file editors
No third–party software packages are required
We have integrated a group of file editors in the Control Panel so that you can create quick and simple modifications in your files without having to employ any third party software packs. With the File Manager you can find a WYSIWYG editor that will help monitor all the current changes you come up with in real time, a code editor that features syntax emphasizing for your personal .JS or .PHP files, as well as a plain text editor for more competent users. Any changes you generate and keep can be reflected right away on the Internet.
You can access the file editors when using the buttons at the top of the file table or by right–clicking a certain file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All of your files organized in a simple method
If you are working with several websites at the same time, it’s highly recommendable for you to have every little thing organized. With some other File Managers, modifying a great number of websites inside the same account is quite challenging. With our File Manager, you’ll find that it’s in fact quite easy. Every single website does have its own folder, that you’ll instantly acknowledge, including all of the files associated with the specified site are situated there.
And also to make everything so much easier, we have a drop–down navigation from which it’s easy to pick on which host you would like to work in the File Manager. Our intelligent system will lead you there within seconds.
A user–friendly interface
Be in charge of your files with just a mouse–click
The Cloud Hosting Ltd File Manager was made in such a way as to make you feel just like using the file explorer on your desktop. It functions a possibility to drag your files and then to drop them with a preferred area and shows all the obtainable edit opportunities upon clicking the right computer mouse button. Furthermore, the tool carries an internal file preview solution and various file editors that will help modify your files in real time from your Control Panel.
Also, we have integrated a couple of file management articles and how–to instructional videos to help you fairly quickly learn how to make use of the tool.
Work with multiple files
Modify a lot of files simultaneously
Using the Cloud Hosting Ltd File Manager, you can choose a lot of files or folders exactly like you do on your personal computer. Just keep pressed the Control (Command for Mac) key and click on the required files/folders. In case you’d like, to pick a lot of files/folders simultaneously, click on a single file/folder, press the Shift key and click on any other file or folder.
Once you have chosen all of the files that you’ll require, it is possible to drag them into a different directory, or use the right–click context menu to view a summary of the available features.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to shield your data
If you wish to password–protect a folder within your web site, you will have to create an .htaccess file by hand. Expectedly, this can be time–demanding and complex if you aren’t a specialist in hosting.
