Used as FTP software substitutes, web–based file management tools have always been slow and poor in features. Nevertheless, when using the File Manager featured in the 1st Hosting Web Control Panel, you will not only have a speedy, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file managing interface, but also a tool that will make an external FTP program unneeded. Check out a few of the characteristics that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Transfer files to your web pages with ease
The File Manager in your Web Control Panel boasts a rapid, drag–and–drop functionality that will allow you to move files between your computer and your web hosting profile without having to apply an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client. You can drag files from your computer and drop them in your Web Control Panel with a mouse–click through a safe SSL connection.
The drag’n’drop characteristic is incorporated into the Web Control Panel, which means you don’t need to mount any third–party software to work with it. It also works well on all leading Os’s, so all you need to do to employ it is sign in to your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
Handle your files with a mouse–click
The majority of File Managers include all of the activities that one can carry out over a file or folder on the top of the page. We think this is not properly arranged. Thanks to the File Manager, you can get all file managing choices at the time you right–click a file or directory. This option is also valid for a number of files/folders.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or folder you select with just a mouse–click.
Manage archives with a click
The File Manager comes with an internal archive/unarchive solution to help you to add big archives and then extract them into your account in the blink of an eye. The moment compressing a file or folder, it is possible to select the title of the archive that is to be created as well as its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Furthermore, you are able to compress active folders or files with simply a click of the mouse.
The archive/unarchive alternative available at the File Manager means you can handle massive files directly from your Web Control Panel. No reason to employ any third party software for example an FTP client in order to upload a huge file to your website hosting account or download any archive to your desktop.
Integrated file editors
No third party software is necessary
We’ve incorporated a pair of file editors in the Web Control Panel to help you produce easy and quick corrections to your files and never having to apply third–party software. With the File Manager there is also a WYSIWYG editor that will assist you keep an eye on any changes you create live, a code editor which includes syntax displaying for your personal .JS or .PHP files, and a plain text editor for more experienced customers. All the changes you make and save can be demonstrated straight away on the Internet.
You can access the file editors using the buttons near the top of the file table or by right–clicking any file/folder.
A logical folder structure
Your files arranged with an intuitive way
If you are managing a great number of web sites concurrently, it is important to have every little thing arranged. With some other File Managers, editing a great number of sites inside the exact same website hosting account can be very challenging. Using our File Manager, you will see that it’s actually really simple. Every website does have its own directory, which you can straight away recognize, including all of the files related to the given web site are placed there.
And then to make everything even easier, we have a drop–down navigation where it’s easy to select on exactly which web host you want to work in the File Manager. Our intelligent system will take you there in seconds.
A user–friendly interface
Be in charge of your data with simply a click of the mouse
The 1st Hosting File Manager is designed in such a way as to make you feel like using the services of the file explorer on your personal computer. It has an option to drag your files and to drop them inside a desired location and indicates all of the accessible edit options on clicking the right computer mouse button. At the same time, the tool includes a built in file preview option and other file editors enabling you to manage your files quickly directly from your Web Control Panel.
Additionally, we’ve integrated a couple of file management articles and how–to video tutorials to enable you rather quickly find out how to make use of the tool.
Work with multiple files
Change many different files all at once
With the 1st Hosting File Manager, it is easy to select many files or directories just like you do on your notebook or computer. Simply hold down the Control (Command for Mac) key and click on the required files/folders. In case you would like, to choose a considerable amount of files/folders at the same time, simply click one file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
When you have chosen each of the files that you’ll require, you are able to drag them into a distinct location, or take advantage of the right–click context menu to check out an index of the accessible features.
1–click password protection options
The ultimate way to take care of your data
Password protection is the perfect solution to confine the access to an important section of your website you don’t need to be seen to every one. As an example, this could be a secure members’ area or a location with copyrighted information that you like exclusively selected customers to reach.
From the File Manager you’re able to password–guard your site or perhaps a certain directory inside with merely a mouse–click. Just right–click a directory, select Password Protection and submit your login name as well as pass word. You do not have to handle .htaccess files as well as to come up with any extra adjustments. In the future, only the site visitors that have your username and password will be able to access your web site.
