Used as FTP software substitutes, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Yet, using the File Manager integrated in the PhilWebSales Control Panel, you won’t just employ a blazingly fast, responsive and user–friendly file administration interface, but also an app that will make a 3rd party FTP program unneeded. Consider some of the functions that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Transfer data files to your web pages without any difficulty
The File Manager in your Control Panel features a fast, drag’n’drop functionality that will allow you to move files between your computer and your hosting account without having to work with an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) tool. You can easily pull files from your computer and drop them in your Control Panel with a click of the mouse by using a safe SSL connection.
The drag–and–drop feature is built–into the Control Panel, so you don’t have to set up any third party software pack to take full advantage of it. It will also work on all popular Os’s, so all you have to do to apply it is log into your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
Manage your files with only a click
A large number of File Managers list all the actions you can perform within a file or directory at the top of the web page. We feel the latter isn’t user–friendly enough. With the File Manager, you can access all file management options whenever you right–click a file or folder. This method is likewise valid for many different files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or folder you choose with just a mouse–click.
Maintain archives with simply a mouse–click
The File Manager comes with a built–in archive/unarchive option to help you to submit huge archives and extract them into your web hosting account in the blink of an eye. Any time compressing a file or directory, it is possible to select the name of the archive that will be created along with its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. At the same time, it’s possible to compress existing folders or files with only a mouse–click.
The archive/unarchive option provided by the File Manager helps you to use big files directly from your Control Panel. No need to start using any third party software just like an FTP client so as to upload a huge file onto your website hosting account or to download any kind of archive on your desktop.
Integrated file editors
No third–party software packs are required
We’ve incorporated a number of file editors in the Control Panel to assist you come up with easy and quick modifications in your files without needing to employ third–party software packs. With the File Manager you will find a WYSIWYG editor that will help you monitor any changes you generate right away, a code editor that features syntax accentuating for one’s .JS or .PHP files, along with a plain text editor for more competent users. Any changes that you generate and keep are going to be demonstrated right away on the web.
You can access the file editors using the buttons near the top of the file table or by right–clicking a given file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All your files arranged in a user–friendly manner
All the files inside your cloud hosting account are neatly organized into folders. Every host features its own primary directory, which follows the file hierarchy which you have selected. This way, it is really easy to manage all your hosts in one location without the risk of becoming lost or baffled.
By standard, you’ll see all of the hosts conveniently placed in a table and if you mouse–click once on a given host, you will see all of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking on two times, you are going to visit a page that’s focused entirely on that host only. One other way to load the folder pertaining to a given host and to work with it exclusively, is to try using the drop–down menu at the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager meant for regular people
Most web File Managers are slow and hard to apply. They have constrained possibilities and typically are not really intuitive. We strive to transform that with the PhilWebSales File Manager. It is developed to be time and effort saving and to resemble an item you already know – the File Manager on your personal computer.
All its capabilities, the drag’n’drop file upload options, the right–click contextual menus, the internal file editors, etcetera exist for 1 reason – to create handling your site(s) simpler.
Work with multiple files
Modify a lot of files simultaneously
With the PhilWebSales File Manager, it is possible to select a lot of files or folders exactly like you do on your desktop machine or notebook. Simply hold down the Control (Command for Mac) key and then click the required files/folders. In case you’d like, to pick multiple files/folders simultaneously, just click one file/folder, press the Shift key and then click any file or folder.
Once you’ve picked the whole set of files that you need, it’s possible to drag them into a specified directory, or take advantage of the right–click context menu to check out an index of the accessible activities.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to guard your details
If you need to password–secure a directory within your web site, you have got to make an .htaccess file by hand. Expectedly, this could be time–demanding and complex if you’re not a specialist in Linux hosting. When using the File Manager, you can make a password–secured folder and hide its contents from any users with merely a few mouse–clicks.
Everything you need to do is right–click a directory, choose Password Protection and after that click on the Add selection. Then simply indicate a user name and also a pass word. No extra configuration is required and there’s no need to address an .htaccess file. Our platform will handle every little thing on your behalf.
