Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software substitutes, web–based file managers have always been slow and poor in features. Nevertheless, using the File Manager included in the Hosting Websites Buy Domains.com Site Control Panel, you won’t only have a rapid, intuitive and easy–to–use file managing client, but also a software tool that will make a third party FTP application unneeded. Consider a few of the capabilities that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add data files without any difficulty
Moving files between your desktop machine and any of your webpages is now quick and simple, because of the drag’n’drop functionality offered by the File Manager. You could pull files from your computer and drop them in your Site Control Panel through a secure SSL connection. That’s it. It takes a few seconds to add a file and a little bit longer for any bigger files and folders.
There is no need to install any third party software package or browser addons. The drag–and–drop capability contained in the File Manager works equally efficiently on all major operating systems.
Right–click context menus
All of the file control choices at hand
We’ve aimed to make File Manager as user–friendly as it could possibly be, so you are able to produce adjustments for your files. Besides the traditional command bar near the top of the page, we have now in addition put in right–click contextual menus with the simple file control possibilities. Click on a file or folder and select the action that you like through the list which will turn up.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide on with just a click of the mouse. When you click a directory, it’s also possible to create a different folder or file in it.
The right–click option is conveniently obtainable when you choose numerous files or folders at the same time.
Manage archives with just a click of the mouse
The File Manager is equipped with a built in archive/unarchive option that may help you submit enormous archives and then extract them in to your cloud hosting account in seconds. Once compressing a file or directory, you are able to select the name for the archive that is to be created as well as its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Also, you will be able to archive already present folders or files with a click of the mouse.
The archive/unarchive option available at the File Manager really helps to make use of huge files straight from your Site Control Panel. No reason to employ any third–party software such as an FTP client in order to upload a large file to your cloud hosting account or to download any kind of archive on your desktop.
Integrated file editors
Zero third party applications are needed
We have bundled a pair of file editors inside the Site Control Panel to enable you to create quick and simple adjusts for your files and never having to implement any third party software. Inside the File Manager you will find a WYSIWYG editor that can help you check all the current changes you come up with in real time, a code editor that boasts syntax displaying for your personal .PHP or .JS files, along with a plain text editor for more experienced users. All the changes which you create and save can be demonstrated at once online.
You have access to the file editors using the buttons at the top of the file table or by right–clicking a particular file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All your files organized with a convenient–to–use manner
All the files inside your web hosting account are separated into folders. Each host has its own main directory, which uses the file hierarchy which you have selected. Using this method, it is straightforward to deal with all of your current hosts from a single location without risk of becoming lost or baffled.
By standard, you will see each of the hosts conveniently listed in a table and when you click once on a specific host, you will see the whole set of sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking on twice, you are going to visit a web page that is focused entirely on that host exclusively. Another way to load the folder related to a specific host and then to work with it exclusively, is using the drop–down menu near the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
