Used as FTP software substitutes, web–based file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in features. However, when using the File Manager featured in the WebDaytonaHosting Web Hosting Control Panel, you will not only have a rapid, intuitive and easy–to–use file management software, but also a software tool that will make a 3rd party FTP software unnecessary. Have a look at a few of the functions that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple method to publish data files
Publishing data files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and quite an insecure way of transmitting data files from your PC to a hosting server. By reason of this, we have included drag–and–drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Just drag the files that you need to upload from your desktop computer into your Internet browser and they will start to publish in your hosting account through a protected SSL connection.
You do not have to deploy any additional software package, browser extensions or programs. The drag & drop capability works just as well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Control all files with just a mouse–click
A large number of File Managers specify all of the actions which you can perform over a file or folder at the top of the webpage. We believe the latter is just not intuitive enough. With the File Manager, you can get all of the file managing choices at the time you right–click a file or directory. This approach is likewise applicable for multiple files/folders.
It’s possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you select with just a mouse–click.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Compared with the vast majority of file management interfaces and FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the WebDaytonaHosting Web Hosting Control Panel offers a solution to archive/unarchive files considerably quicker. It is really intuitive. To get a directory shrunk into a compact size, simply pick it and then click the Compress button. To open the contents of an archived folder in your hosting account, choose it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager supports a wide range of file extensions, like .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Integrated file editors
Absolutely no third party applications are necessary
We’ve incorporated a collection of file editors within the Web Hosting Control Panel so that you can produce quick and simple improvements to your files and never have to implement third party applications. Inside the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that will help you check all the current changes which you create immediately, a code editor that includes syntax highlighting for one’s .JS or .PHP files, and also a plain text editor for more expert users. All the changes that you come up with and keep will be reflected automatically on the Internet.
You have access to the file editors making use of the buttons at the top of the file table and also by right–clicking a particular file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All of your files structured in a convenient–to–use approach
The File Manager displays all of the files and folders using a clear to understand alphabetical order. The whole set of files related to the various hosts are sorted into separate directories that are titled after their individual domain names, in order for you to immediately acknowledge them. This is definitely useful when you are managing a great number of websites at the same time. There is no opportunity to stray or to feel really confused among the large number of data files and directories in your website hosting account.
To gain access to the files under a given host, just pick it in the drop–down menu near the top of the file table. Additionally, you can double–click on its folder and you are automatically transported to a table listing its files only.
A user–friendly interface
Be in charge of your files with merely a click of the mouse
The WebDaytonaHosting File Manager has been made in such a manner to make you feel just like making use of the file explorer on your computer. It features a possibility to drag your files and to drop them inside a desired location and displays all of the obtainable modification options upon clicking the right mouse button. Also, the tool has an internal file preview option and various file editors that will help modify your files instantly straight from your Web Hosting Control Panel.
Furthermore, we’ve bundled a number of file management posts and how–to video tutorials so that you can rather quickly learn how to make use of the tool.
Work with multiple files
Adjust many files concurrently
With the WebDaytonaHosting File Manager, you’re able to pick out a variety of files or folders like you do on your notebook or computer. Just press the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and then click the required files/folders. If you would like, to pick lots of files/folders at once, click on one file/folder, press the Shift key and click on any other file or folder.
Once you’ve chosen all of the files that you require, you can drag them into a distinct directory, or take advantage of the right–click context menu to find out a listing of the accessible features.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to protect your data
There’s a single widespread technique to safeguard a directory with a security password – by making an .htaccess file. In case, however, you are not technologically experienced enough, you’ll have issues carrying it out on your own. For making things easy, we have included an intuitive password protection interface to the File Manager obtainable within the Web Hosting Control Panel.
To use this option, simply right–click on a directory and choose Password Protection. Then fill in the login name as well as the pass word that you would like to implement and then press the button. That’s all. The selected folder will be concealed from the general pubic and will also be available only to previously approved visitors.
