Applied as FTP software substitutes, web file management tools have always been slow and poorly featured. Nevertheless, with the File Manager built in the 254Sun WebHosting Web Site Control Panel, you will not only have a blazingly fast, responsive and user–friendly file administration software, but also an app that will make a third–party FTP application unnecessary. Have a look at several of the characteristics that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Transfer data files to your web sites with ease
The File Manager in your Web Site Control Panel boasts a quick, drag–and–drop function that will assist you to transfer files between your PC and your hosting profile without the need to apply an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) tool. You can easily pull files from your personal computer and drop them in your Web Site Control Panel with a mouse–click by using a safe SSL connection.
The drag & drop feature is included in the Web Site Control Panel, so you don’t need to set up any third–party software package to apply it. It also works well on all major Operating Systems, so all you need to do to use it is log into your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
Manage all of your with only a mouse–click
Most File Managers include all of the actions that you can perform with a file or directory at the top of the page. We believe the latter isn’t user–friendly enough. With the File Manager, you have access to all of the file management options at the time you right–click a file or folder. This method is likewise valid for a number of 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 only a mouse–click.
Maintain archives with only a click of the mouse
The File Manager comes with an internal archive/unarchive option to help you to add substantial archives and then extract them into your hosting account within seconds. When compressing a file or folder, it is possible to decide on the title of the archive which is to be created and its particular extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Furthermore, you’ll be able to archive current folders or files with only a click of the mouse.
The archive/unarchive solution available from the File Manager means you can work with big files straight from your Web Site Control Panel. You don’t have to start using any third party software for instance an FTP client in order to upload a big file onto your website hosting account or to download any archive on your desktop.
Integrated file editors
No third–party applications are necessary
We have incorporated a set of file editors in the Web Site Control Panel so you’re able to produce quick and easy adjustments in your files and never have to employ third party software packs. Inside the File Manager you can find a WYSIWYG editor that will help you check all the current changes which you create live, a code editor that boasts syntax accentuating for your personal .PHP or .JS files, as well as a plain text editor for more competent users. All the changes which you generate and save will be demonstrated right away on the Internet.
You can access the file editors making use of the buttons near the top of the file table as well as by right–clicking any file/folder.
A logical folder structure
Your files structured with a straightforward way
All of the files within your hosting account are neatly sorted into folders. Each and every host does have its main directory, which follows the file hierarchy that you have defined. In this way, it is easy to manage all of your hosts in one location without any probability of getting lost or confused.
By standard, you will see each of the hosts listed in a table and when you mouse–click once over a specific host, you will see all of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking on two times, you will go to a page which is dedicated to that host exclusively. A different way to open the folder pertaining to a given host and also to use it solely, is by using the drop–down menu at the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager intended for regular people
Most online File Managers are slow and very difficult to employ. They have constrained options and are not really straightforward. We strive to improve that by means of the 254Sun WebHosting File Manager. It is developed to be time and effort saving and also to seem like something you you’re already familiar with – the File Manager on your personal computer.
All its features, the drag’n’drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the internal file editors, etc. exist for just one purpose – to make managing your site(s) less of a challenge.
Work with multiple files
Transform various files simultaneously
The File Manager can help you save a plenty of time when working with many different files. You can choose multiple files at any given time and apply a pre–selected activity to them exactly like you do with your PC. To select arbitrary files at once, simply press the Control key, and to select a pair of adjacent files, press the Shift key. It’s that easy.
After you have picked the files, you can actually instantly move them to another location making use of the drag–and–drop option. With the help of the right–click contextual menu and also the buttons above the file table, you’ll be able to use a myriad of other activities – you are able to copy, rename, delete, download and revise your files, change file permissions, and so on.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to guard your details
There is one prevalent way for you to safeguard a directory with a pass word – by generating an .htaccess file. In case, however, you aren’t technically skilled sufficiently, you’ll have issues carrying it out by yourself. To make things straightforward, we have added a user–friendly password protection interface to the File Manager obtainable within the Web Site Control Panel.
To employ this option, simply right–click on a folder and choose Password Protection. Then choose the login name and the security password that you would like to apply and then press the button. That’s it. Now the particular directory will be undetectable by the regular website visitors and will be available to previously approved visitors.
