Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software substitutes, web file management tools have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Still, when using the File Manager built in the Cheap Australian Web Hosting Site Control Panel, you won’t only employ a speedy, responsive and time and effort saving file managing client, but also an instrument that will make a 3rd party FTP program unnecessary. Take a look at several of the characteristics that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The easiest method to upload files
Submitting data files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and quite an unsafe way of shifting files from your personal computer to a web server. This is why, we have included drag & drop file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the files that you need to publish from your desktop into your Internet browser and they will begin to publish in your web hosting profile through a protected SSL connection.
You don’t need to install any additional software pack, browser plug–ins or web apps. The drag–and–drop function operates equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Control all of your with only a click
The vast majority of File Managers list all of the actions that you can perform within a file or folder at the top of the webpage. We feel this is not user–friendly enough. Using the File Manager, you have access to all file management choices any time you right–click a file or directory. This option is also valid for a group of files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide using a click of the mouse.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Not like nearly all file management interfaces and FTP clients, the Cheap Australian Web Hosting Site Control Panel offers a way to archive/unarchive files noticeably faster. It is really simple to operate. To have a folder reduced into a compact size, just select it and click on the Compress button. To unwrap the contents of an archived folder within your web hosting account, select it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager uses a wide range of file extensions, for example .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Modify files straight from your Site Control Panel
From the File Manager you’ll be able to alter your files instantly on the net when using any of the built–in tools. The text editor reveals the files in a plain text formatting, the code editor features syntax highlighting for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor makes it possible to see your modifications as they show up online. Any changes which you create and keep are going to be reflected promptly online, so you can examine them in your own browser and go back to generate extra edits, in case you are not happy with the result.
There’s no need to download any files whatsoever, to modify them in your machine and then to re–upload them back into your account. Each of the editors are accessible via the buttons at the top of the file table or from the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
Your files structured with a straightforward way
Each of the files within your hosting account are separated into directories. Every host has its own main folder, which follows the file hierarchy that you have selected. In this way, it is really an easy task to take care of all your hosts from a single place with no probability of getting lost or perplexed.
By default, you will see all of the hosts conveniently listed in a table and if you click once over a specific host, you’ll see the whole set of sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking twice, you will go to a web page that’s dedicated to that host alone. One other way to load the folder associated with a particular host and to use it solely, is using the drop–down menu near the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager made especially for the people
The majority of web File Managers are slow–moving and difficult to make use of. They offer reduced possibilities and aren’t really intuitive. We seek to transform that through the Cheap Australian Web Hosting File Manager. It’s built to be easy–to–use and also to appear like a product you already know – the File Manager on your desktop.
All its capabilities, the drag–and–drop file upload solutions, the right–click context menus, the built in file editors, etcetera are available for one purpose – to help make maintaining your web site(s) more convenient.
Work with multiple files
Adjust a lot of files all at once
With the Cheap Australian Web Hosting File Manager, you’re able to pick many different files or directories like you do on your PC. Just keep pressed the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and click on the desired files/folders. If you would like, to select lots of files/folders at the same time, click one file/folder, press the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
Once you’ve chosen all the files that you need, it is possible to drag them into a distinct location, or take advantage of the right–click contextual menu to find out a listing of the available actions.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to secure your information
There’s a single typical technique to guard a folder with a security password – by generating an .htaccess file. If, however, you are not technically experienced enough, you will have trouble performing it all on your own. To generate things simple, we’ve designed a convenient password protection user interface to the File Manager obtainable within the Site Control Panel.
To use this option, simply right–click on a directory and pick Password Protection. Then fill out the login name and the password that you’d like to implement and then click on the button. That’s it. The chosen folder is going to be hidden by the general pubic and will be available only to previously approved users.
