Applied as FTP client substitutes, online file management tools have always been slow and poorly featured. Still, with the File Manager included in the BitsHost Site Control Panel, you won’t just employ a speedy, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file managing interface, but also an app that will make a third party FTP application unneeded. Consider a few of the functions that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least difficult way to upload data files
Uploading data files with an FTP tool is an out–of–date and really insecure way for moving data files from your computer to a server. For this reason, we have included drag’n’drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the files that you need to add from your desktop computer into your Internet browser and they will start to upload in your website hosting account through a safe SSL communication.
You don’t have to mount any additional software pack, web browser extensions or programs. The drag & drop feature operates just as well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Manage your files with only a click
Most File Managers specify all the activities that you can conduct on a file or directory on the top of the page. We believe that this isn’t user–friendly enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you can access all of the file administration choices at the time you right–click a file or folder. This approach is likewise applicable for many different files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide with simply a mouse–click.
Be in charge of archives with only a mouse–click
The File Manager provides an in–built archive/unarchive option to help you to upload large archives and extract them within your hosting account within seconds. Any time compressing a file or folder, you’ll be able to decide on the title of the archive which is to be created along with its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. At the same time, it is possible to compress current files or folders with merely a mouse–click.
The archive/unarchive option available from the File Manager allows you to use massive files straight from your Site Control Panel. No need to employ any third–party software such as an FTP client as a way to upload a big file to your cloud hosting account or download any archive on your desktop.
Online file editors
Revise files straight from your Site Control Panel
With the File Manager you can easily manage your files instantly on the Internet working with the internal instruments. The text editor reveals the files in a plain text format, the code editor has syntax displaying for your .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor lets you to see your changes when they appear online. Any changes which you come up with and save will be reflected at once on the world wide web, in order for you to preview them inside your browser and go back to generate further changes, in case you are not happy with the result.
There’s no need to download any files whatsoever, to revise them with your desktop and then to re–upload them back to your account. All of the editors are available using the buttons at the top of the file table or through the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured in a simple manner
Each of the files in your website hosting account are sorted into directories. Every single web host has its own primary directory, which uses the file hierarchy that you’ve created. This way, it is effortless to deal with all your hosts from one location with no chance of becoming lost or perplexed.
By standard, you’ll see each of the hosts indexed in a table and if you click once on a specific host, you will observe all the sub–folders and files pertaining to it. By clicking on two times, you will visit a page that’s centered on that host only. A different way to open the folder pertaining to a particular host and to work with it exclusively, is to use the drop–down menu at the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager made for real people
Dealing with your files is natural and convenient with the BitsHost Site Control Panel. You are going to experience a file managing setting that’s not far from your personal computer’s file explorer. You can drag and drop files and handle all of them with a right click of the mouse. When using the internal preview solution, you can observe pictures in the same way they will appear on the web, and throughout the built in file editors you can create corrections for your files quickly.
If you would like support maintaining your files, you’ll be able to consider the enormous number of posts and how–to video tutorials, which you can find with only a click of the mouse.
Work with multiple files
Change a lot of files all at once
The File Manager will save you a lot of time when you use multiple files. It’s possible to pick different files at a time and apply a preferred activity for them like you do on your laptop. To choose random files simultaneously, just click the Control key, and to select a number of adjacent files, press the Shift key. It’s that easy.
When you have chosen the files, you are able to at once transfer them to a different spot using the drag–and–drop option. By making use of the right–click contextual menu and the buttons on top of the file table, you can apply a number of other activities – you’re able to copy, rename, delete, download and modify your files, transform file permissions, etcetera.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to shield your data
There is one standard way to secure a directory using a security password – by generating an .htaccess file. If, however, you are not technologically qualified sufficiently, you will have difficulty doing the work on your own. For making things straightforward, we have included a simple to use password protection interface to the File Manager available in the Site Control Panel.
To make use of the option, simply right–click on a folder and pick Password Protection. Following that choose the user name as well as the security password that you would like to make use of and then press the button. That’s it. Now the chosen folder will be hidden by the public eye and will also be accessible only to authorized account owners.
