Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web file management tools have always been slow and poorly featured. However, when using the File Manager built in the -Iclick2- Web Hosting and Cloud Service Web Site Control Panel, you will not only have a fast, intuitive and easy–to–use file managing interface, but also a tool that will make a third party FTP software unnecessary. Take a look at some of the capabilities that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Publish data files without difficulty
Moving files between your desktop machine and any of your web sites is right now easy and quick, because of the drag’n’drop feature available from the File Manager. You can pull files from your personal computer and drop them in the Web Site Control Panel through a secure SSL connection. That’s all. It takes seconds to publish a file and a bit longer for any larger files and directories.
It is not necessary to mount any third party software package or browser plug–ins. The drag–and–drop capability included in the File Manager works equally efficiently on all leading OS’s.
Right–click context menus
Discover all the available file management options with a click
Because of the right–click menus that we have included on the File Manager, it is possible to edit your files incredibly easy. Just click on a file or directory and with the pop–up panel, opt for the actions that you’d like. You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any picked file. When you click on a folder, you can also view the solution to generate a brand new sub–folder or file inside.
If you choose many different files or folders, you’ll be able to apply the exact same actions to all of them simultaneously.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Distinct from the vast majority of file management interfaces and FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the -Iclick2- Web Hosting and Cloud Service Web Site Control Panel has a way to archive/unarchive files considerably faster. It is easy to use. To get a folder shrunk into a small size, all you need to do is choose it and click on the Compress button. To unwrap the contents of an archived folder within your account, select it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager works with a wide range of file extensions, including .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Modify files directly from your Web Site Control Panel
From your File Manager you can modify your files instantly online working with the in–built software tools. The text editor displays the files in a plain text formatting, the code editor provides syntax accentuating for your personal .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor makes it possible to see all the modifications when they show up online. Also, all changes which you create and save can be shown automatically on the net, which enables you to examine them with your web browser and go back to generate more edits, in case you are not satisfied with the result.
You do not have to download any files, to revise them on your personal computer and to re–upload them back to your account. All the editors are found via the buttons near the top of the file table or at the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured in a simple to use way
All the files inside your website hosting account are neatly arranged into directories. Each and every host has its own main directory, that follows the file hierarchy you have created. This way, it is really easy to manage all of your hosts in one location without any probability of becoming lost or puzzled.
By standard, you will notice each of the hosts indexed in a table and when you mouse–click once on a specific host, you will observe the whole set of sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking on two times, you will go to a web page that is dedicated to that host alone. A different way to open the folder related to a certain host and then to use it solely, is by using the drop–down menu towards the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager devised for the people
The majority of online File Managers are slow and complex to work with. They have constrained options and aren’t really uncomplicated. We aim to transform that by means of the -Iclick2- Web Hosting and Cloud Service File Manager. It is created to be practical and to look like something you you’re already familiar with – the File Manager on your PC.
All of its attributes, the drag’n’drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the inbuilt file editors, etcetera are available for a single reason – to create managing your web site(s) a lot easier.
Work with multiple files
Modify many different files simultaneously
With the -Iclick2- Web Hosting and Cloud Service File Manager, you can select a wide range of files or directories exactly like you do notebook or desktop computer. Just keep pressed the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and then click the required files/folders. In case you’d like, to select a good amount of files/folders at the same time, click on a single file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
Once you’ve chosen the whole set of files that you want to, you can easily drag them into a specified directory, or use the right–click context menu to check out a list of the accessible activities.
1–click password protection options
The easiest way to protect your information
Password protection is the greatest method to limit the ability to access a specialized element of your site you don’t want to be exposed to every one. As an example, this could be a safe members’ area or even a location with copyrighted information that you would like exclusively particular individuals to get into.
With the File Manager you can actually password–guard your website or maybe a selected folder inside it with only a click of the mouse. Just right–click a directory, pick Password Protection and select your login name as well as security password. You do not have to take care of .htaccess files or make any additional configurations. In the future, only the visitors who have your user name and pass word will be able to access your web site.
