Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software substitutes, online file management tools have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Nevertheless, when using the File Manager integrated in the Apple Hosting Website Control Panel, you won’t only have a speedy, intuitive and time and effort saving file supervision software, but also an app that will make an external FTP application unnecessary. Take a look at several of the functions that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Upload files effortlessly
Transferring data files between your desktop computer and any of your websites is now fast and simple, thanks to the drag–and–drop functionality available from the File Manager. You can pull files from your computer and drop them in your Website Control Panel over a secure SSL connection. That’s all. It usually takes seconds to upload a file and a little bit longer for larger files and folders.
It is not necessary to put in any third–party computer software or Internet browser addons. The drag & drop functionality included in the File Manager performs equally efficiently on all popular OS’s.
Right–click context menus
Control all of your with a mouse–click
The majority of File Managers include all the activities that you can execute within a file or directory on the top of the web page. We feel that the latter is just not intuitive enough. With the File Manager, you can get all of the file administration options when you right–click a file or directory. This approach is also applicable for a group of files/folders.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or folder you select with just a mouse–click.
Take care of archives with simply a click of the mouse
The File Manager comes with a built–in archive/unarchive solution that will help you upload huge archives and extract them into your account in seconds. Once compressing a file or folder, you’ll be able to decide on the title of the archive which is to be created and its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Also, you are able to archive already present files or folders with only a click of the mouse.
The archive/unarchive alternative available from the File Manager will allow you to use huge files straight from your Website Control Panel. You don’t need to use any third party software for instance an FTP client in order to upload a large file in your account or to download an archive in your desktop.
Online file editors
Manage files from your Website Control Panel
With the File Manager it is easy to edit your files directly online by making use of some of the built–in software tools. The text editor reveals the files with a plain text formatting, the code editor features syntax emphasizing for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor helps to see your modifications when they show up live. Furthermore, all changes that you come up with and save will be reflected right away online, which enables you to examine them in your own Internet browser and go back to make further modifications, if unsatisfied.
You do not have to download any files, to revise them with your machine and then to re–upload them back to your website hosting account. Each of the editors are available via the buttons near the top of the file table or at the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
Your files sorted with a convenient manner
The File Manager displays all files and folders in a clear to understand alphabetical order. The whole set of files pertaining to the various hosts are structured within separate directories that are referred to as following their particular domains, so that you can efficiently identify them. This is really useful when you are managing a range of websites at the same time. There’s no probability to get lost or to feel really confused among the plethora of files and folders with your hosting account.
To gain access to the files within a host, just choose it in the drop–down menu at the top of the file table. Alternatively, you’ll be able to double–click on its directory and you’ll be without delay transported to a table showing its files exclusively.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager designed for real people
Making use of all of your files is instinctive and hassle–free while using the Apple Hosting Website Control Panel. You are going to experience a file management atmosphere that is not far from your desktop PC’s file explorer. You can drag and drop files and handle them with a right mouse–click. Thanks to the included review option, you can see images the same as they will appear on the web, and through the provided file editors you could make transformations in your files immediately.
If you want help maintaining your files, you can make reference to the large number of articles and how–to video tutorials, which you could find with just a mouse–click.
Work with multiple files
Adjust a wide range of files concurrently
The File Manager will help you save a lot of time whenever using many different files. You can easily choose many different files at a time and apply a preferred action to them like you do with your notebook or computer. To pick random files at once, simply press the Control key, and to pick a couple of adjoining files, press the Shift key. It is that simple.
After you have chosen the files, you can actually automatically transfer them to another place using the drag–and–drop option. By making use of the right–click context menu and also the buttons on top of the file table, you can use a variety of other actions – you can copy, rename, delete, download and revise your files, alter file permissions, etc.
1–click password protection options
The simplest way to shield your information
Password protection is the best path to reduce the admittance to a certain part of your website that you do not plan to be noticeable to every one. For example, this might be a safe and secure members’ spot or even a location with copyrighted information that you would like just particular customers to get into.
Through the File Manager it is easy to password–protect your website or maybe a specific folder inside with merely a click of the mouse. Just right–click a directory, choose Password Protection and select the username as well as password. There is no need to handle .htaccess files as well as to try to make any other configurations. In the future, merely the website visitors that have your username and password will be able to access your website.
