Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, online file managers have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Nonetheless, with the File Manager featured in the Advanceinternetwork.com Site Control Panel, you won’t just employ a rapid, responsive and time and effort saving file administration interface, but also a software instrument that will make a 3rd party FTP program unnecessary. Take a look at several of the functions that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Move data files to your web sites with ease
The File Manager in your Site Control Panel includes a rapid, drag–and–drop function that will assist you to move data files between your computer and your web hosting account without the need to apply an FTP client. You could pull data files from your computer and drop them in your Site Control Panel with a click of the mouse by using a protected SSL connection.
The drag & drop feature is incorporated into the Site Control Panel, which means you don’t need to install any third party computer software to work with it. It will also work on all major Operating Systems, so all you need to do to make use of it is sign in to your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
View all of the easily accessible file management options with only a click of the mouse
On account of the right–click menus that we have included with the File Manager, you will be able to alter your files easier than ever. Just click on a file or directory and from the panel which will show up, pick the actions that you want. It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete virtually any selected file. If you click on a folder, additionally, you will view the option to establish a brand new sub–folder or file inside.
Whenever you choose numerous files or folders, you’ll be able to apply the exact same procedures to all of them concurrently.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Distinct from the vast majority of file management user interfaces as well as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the Advanceinternetwork.com Site Control Panel offers a solution to archive/unarchive files much quicker. It is intuitive. To get a folder shrunk into a small size, just select it and then click the Compress button. To open up the items in an archived folder in your account, select it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager uses many file extensions, like .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Change files straight from your Site Control Panel
From the File Manager you can revise your files directly on the Internet by making use of any of the integrated instruments. The text editor shows the files in a plain text format, the code editor features syntax displaying for your .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor really helps you to view your edits when they appear live. All the changes you make and keep will be displayed straight away on the Internet, so you can examine them in your Internet browser and get back to create further edits, if you are not happy with the result.
You do not have to download any files whatsoever, to change them in your machine and to re–upload them back to your website hosting account. All of the editors are accessible through the buttons near the top of the file table or at the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files organized in a simple to use way
All the files within your hosting account are neatly sorted into folders. Each and every host does have its primary directory, which uses the file hierarchy which you have pre–set. Using this method, it is not difficult to control all of your current hosts from one location without the chance of getting lost or puzzled.
By default, you’ll see each of the hosts conveniently listed in a table and if you click once over a specific host, you will see all the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking on twice, you are going to visit a web page which is devoted to that host alone. An alternative way to open the folder related to a given host and then to work with it solely, is using the drop–down menu at the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager intended for the general public
The vast majority of web File Managers are sluggish and difficult to work with. They provide constrained options and are not really uncomplicated. We seek to change that by means of the Advanceinternetwork.com File Manager. It is built to be intuitive and to seem like something you you’re already familiar with – the File Manager on your desktop.
All its functions, the drag & drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the built–in file editors, etcetera exist for just one reason – to make controlling your website(s) easier.
Work with multiple files
Adjust different files simultaneously
The File Manager will help you save a lot of time when making use of multiple files. You’ll be able to select multiple files at a time and use a desired action to them precisely like you do with your laptop. To pick random files simultaneously, simply press the Control key, and to select a pair of adjacent files, use the Shift key. It is that straightforward.
After you have picked the files, you can actually instantly move them to a different place making use of the drag & drop option. By means of the right–click context menu and also the buttons on top of the file table, you are able to apply a myriad of other actions – it is easy to copy, rename, delete, download and modify your files, adjust file permissions, etcetera.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to protect your information
There’s one typical route to safeguard a directory using a pass word – by making an .htaccess file. In case, however, you aren’t technically competent sufficiently, you will have difficulties doing it all by yourself. To generate things simple, we have added an easy–to–work–with password protection user interface to the File Manager available within the Site Control Panel.
To employ the option, simply right–click on a folder and choose Password Protection. After that fill in the username plus the password which you want to apply and then press the button. That’s all. Now the chosen folder is concealed from the public eye and will also be available only to approved account owners.
