Applied as FTP client substitutes, online file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Nevertheless, when using the File Manager included in the Value Hosting Web Site Control Panel, you won’t only have a rapid, responsive and easy–to–work–with file supervision client, but also an application that will make an external FTP software unnecessary. Take a look at some of the functions that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The simplest method to add files
Adding files with an FTP tool is an outdated and quite an unsafe method for moving files from your desktop machine or laptop to a web server. That’s why, we have included drag–and–drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Just drag the files that you need to add from your PC into your Internet browser and they will start to upload in your hosting account over a safe SSL communication.
There is no need to deploy any additional computer software, browser plug–ins or programs. The drag–and–drop feature works equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Handle your files with merely a click of the mouse
The vast majority of File Managers specify all the activities which you can conduct within a file or directory at the top of the webpage. We feel the latter is not intuitive enough. With the File Manager, you can get all file control choices when you right–click a file or directory. This method is also valid for a lot of files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or directory you select with only a click of the mouse.
Handle massive files conveniently
Because of the internal archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager helps you to deal with huge files and not having to use FTP. You are able to shrink a directory to a lightweight size by clicking on the Compress button or access the belongings in an archived folder through the Extract button. Whenever compressing a folder or a list of files, it is also possible to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and then the name of the archive file.
Online file editors
The best approach to modify your files
Value Hosting’s File Manager helps to modify your files on the server never having to download, adjust after which re–upload them. It’s possible to change your files instantly online, making use of our built in editors. We offer a code editor equipped with syntax emphasizing for your .PHP or .JS files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, and then a standard text editor for the more experienced users.
You have access to each file editor using the right–click contextual menus. All of the adjusts made to the files will appear automatically online – it’s possible to directly examine them in the Internet browser.
A logical folder structure
All of your files structured with a straightforward way
All the files inside your hosting account are arranged into folders. Each web host does have its primary directory, which employs the file structure that you’ve created. In this way, it is simple to maintain all your hosts from a single location with no risk of getting lost or baffled.
By default, you will notice all the hosts conveniently indexed in a table and if you click once on a given host, you will observe all of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking on twice, you will go to a page that is devoted to that host exclusively. A different way to open the folder related to a particular host and to work with it solely, is to try using the drop–down menu near the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager meant for regular people
The vast majority of web File Managers are slow–moving and hard to work with. They supply modest possibilities and generally aren’t really uncomplicated. We hope to transform that through the Value Hosting File Manager. It was intended to be practical and to appear like something you already know – the File Manager on your PC.
All its functions, the drag–and–drop file upload options, the right–click contextual menus, the built–in file editors, etc. are there for one reason – to help make handling your web site(s) simpler.
Work with multiple files
Modify a lot of files all at once
With the Value Hosting File Manager, it is easy to pick a lot of files or directories just like you do on your notebook or computer. Simply press the Control (Command for Mac OS) key and click on the wanted files/folders. If you’d like, to choose a good amount of files/folders at once, click a single file/folder, press the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
Once you have chosen all of the files that you require, it is possible to drag them to a pre–selected folder, or make use of the right–click contextual menu to see an index of the available actions.
1–click password protection options
The easiest way to shield your details
Password protection is the best way to control the means to access a given element of your web site you don’t want to be visible to every one. As an example, this could be a safe and secure members’ place or even a place with copyrighted data that you like exclusively selected individuals to reach.
With the File Manager you can easily password–guard your website or maybe a specified directory within it with a mouse–click.
