Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software substitutes, web file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in features. Nonetheless, using the File Manager included in the Small Business Digital Toolkit Online Control Panel, you won’t just employ a blazingly fast, responsive and time and effort saving file management client, but also a software tool that will make a third party FTP software unneeded. Check out a few of the features that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated approach to add files
Submitting files with an FTP client is an outdated and quite an insecure method for relocating data files from your computer to a server. That’s why, we have included drag & drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Just pull the files that you need to upload from your PC into your browser and they will start to publish in your hosting profile through a protected SSL connection.
There is no need to mount any extra software, browser extensions or web apps. The drag–and–drop function operates equally well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus
All file administration choices at hand
We’ve aimed to make the File Manager as intuitive as possible, so you are able to make modifications to your files. Besides the typical control bar at the top of the page, we have now in addition designed right–click contextual menus with all the current basic file managing possibilities. Click on a file or directory and select the actions you’d like to have within the selection which will appear.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide using a click of the mouse. If you click a folder, also you can generate a completely new folder or file inside it.
The right–click option is available as well when you choose different files or folders simultaneously.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
As opposed to a large number of file management user interfaces and FTP clients, the Small Business Digital Toolkit Online Control Panel offers a way to archive/unarchive files faster. It is uncomplicated. To have a directory reduced to a small size, simply choose it and then click the Compress button. To open up the contents of an archived folder in your web hosting account, pick it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager works with several different file extensions, which include .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Revise files straight from your Online Control Panel
From the File Manager you’ll be able to edit your files directly on the Internet applying the built in instruments. The text editor reveals the files in a plain text format, the code editor provides syntax emphasizing for your .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor makes it possible to see all the edits as they appear online. Any changes which you come up with and keep are going to be shown automatically on the Internet, which means you can preview them in your own browser and get back to make further edits, if unsatisfied.
You do not have to download any files whatsoever, to change them in your desktop computer and to re–upload them back in your hosting account. Each of the editors are available via the buttons at the top of the file table or from the right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
Your files sorted out inside a convenient–to–use manner
If you are managing a multitude of web sites concurrently, it’s crucial for you to have every little thing sorted out. With some other File Managers, modifying a lot of different websites in the same account is extremely challenging. With our File Manager, you’ll see that it is actually pretty simple. Every single site does have its own folder, which you can instantly acknowledge, and all of the files pertaining to the given website are located there.
And also to make everything even easier, we have a drop–down navigation from which it’s easy to select on which host you intend to work within the File Manager. Our intelligent system will lead you there in seconds.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager made for the general public
The majority of online File Managers are sluggish and quite difficult to make use of. They give constrained functions and typically are not really convenient–to–use. We seek to change that by means of the Small Business Digital Toolkit File Manager. It’s designed to be practical and also to look like an item you are already well aware of – the File Manager on your desktop.
All its capabilities, the drag’n’drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the built in file editors, etcetera exist for one purpose – to make maintaining your website(s) much simpler.
Work with multiple files
Transform different files concurrently
Our File Manager can help you save a lot of time whenever using different files. You are able to choose multiple files simultaneously and apply a pre–selected activity for them just like you do with your own computer. To select arbitrary files at the same time, just click the Control key, and to pick a number of nearby files, use the Shift key. It’s that easy.
When you have picked the files, you can actually instantly move them to an additional spot thanks to the drag & drop option. By means of the right–click context menu as well as the buttons above the file table, you can apply a number of other activities – it is possible to copy, rename, delete, download and change your files, transform file permissions, etcetera.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to take care of your information
There’s a single common approach to secure a directory with a password – by making an .htaccess file. In case, however, you are not technologically competent enough, you will have issues doing the work by yourself. To help make things straightforward, we have added an easy–to–work–with password protection user interface to the File Manager available inside the Online Control Panel.
To employ the option, simply right–click on a folder and select Password Protection. Then fill out the login name and the security password that you like to employ and press the button. That’s it. The particular folder is going to be undetectable from the standard users and will also be accessible just to previously approved visitors.
