Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in features. Nevertheless, using the File Manager included in the GiantHosts Site Control Panel, you won’t just employ a speedy, responsive and time and effort saving file administration client, but also an instrument that will make a third–party FTP application unnecessary. Check out a few of the functions that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The simplest way to add data files
Publishing files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and really insecure way for transmitting data files from your personal computer to a web server. That’s why, we have included drag’n’drop file upload support in the File Manager. Simply pull the data files that you need to upload from your computer into your browser and they will begin to publish in your hosting profile through a risk–free SSL communication.
You don’t need to install any additional software package, web browser add–ons or programs. The drag & drop function performs just as well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus
Handle all of your with just a click
The majority of File Managers specify all of the actions you can execute on a file or folder at the top of the page. We believe this is not intuitive enough. With the File Manager, you can get all of the file managing options any time you right–click a file or directory. This option is also valid for multiple files/folders.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or directory you decide on with a click of the mouse.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Not like a large number of file management user interfaces and FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the GiantHosts Site Control Panel features a solution to archive/unarchive files considerably faster. It is really simple to operate. To get a directory reduced to a small size, simply pick it and click on the Compress button. To open the contents of an archived directory in your web hosting account, choose it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager uses a number of file extensions, for example .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Integrated file editors
No third–party software is necessary
We have enclosed a pair of file editors within the Site Control Panel so you can come up with easy and quick transformations for your files and never have to use any third party software packs. Within the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that will help monitor any changes which you create right away, a code editor that boasts syntax emphasizing for your personal .PHP or .JS files, and also a plain text editor for more expert users. All the changes you create and save can be demonstrated straight away online.
You can access the file editors when using the buttons at the top of the file table or by right–clicking a particular file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All of your files arranged inside a straightforward approach
When you’re in charge of several websites simultaneously, it is highly recommendable for you to have everything arranged. With many other File Managers, editing a variety of websites in the exact same hosting account could be very tricky. Using the File Manager, you’ll find that it is actually rather easy. Every web site has its own folder, that you can quickly recognize, including all of the files pertaining to the specific site can be found there.
And to make things so much easier, we have a drop–down menu from where you can quickly pick on which web host you would like to work in the File Manager. Our smart system will lead you there within seconds.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager designed for regular people
The majority of online File Managers are slow and pretty difficult to employ. They feature constrained options and certainly are not really convenient–to–use. We aim to transform that with the GiantHosts File Manager. It was meant to be time and effort saving and to appear like a product you are already well aware of – the File Manager on your computer.
All its capabilities, the drag & drop file upload options, the right–click context menus, the in–built file editors, etc. exist for just one reason – to make managing your web site(s) much simpler.
Work with multiple files
Modify a number of files concurrently
With the GiantHosts File Manager, it’s possible to choose many files or folders exactly like you do on your own computer. Simply keep pressed the Control (Command for Mac) key and click on the wanted files/folders. In case you would like, to choose a lot of files/folders at the same time, just click one file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
Once you’ve selected each of the files that you need, you can easily drag them into a pre–selected location, or use the right–click contextual menu to find out a listing of the available features.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to shield your information
If you would like to password–secure a directory in your website, you have got to set up an .htaccess file by hand. However, this is time–absorbing and complex if you’re not a specialist in computing. Thanks to the File Manager, you can make a password–protected directory and hide all its items from the visitors with just a couple of mouse–clicks.
What you need to do is right–click a directory, opt for Password Protection and after that click the Add option. And then just select a user name along with a password. No more configuration is needed and there’s no need to address an .htaccess file. Our platform will manage every thing on your behalf.
