Used as FTP software substitutes, web file management tools have always been slow and poorly featured. Still, using the File Manager included in the Red Dot Hosting Web Hosting Control Panel, you won’t only have a fast, responsive and time and effort saving file managing software, but also an instrument that will make a 3rd party FTP application unnecessary. Have a look at a few of the functions that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add files with ease
Transferring data files between your computer and any of your sites is right now quick and easy, thanks to the drag–and–drop functionality available from the File Manager. You could drag data files from your PC and drop them in the Web Hosting Control Panel over a secure SSL connection. That’s it. It requires just a few seconds to upload a data file and slightly longer for the bigger files and folders.
You don’t need to set up any third party software package or web browser extensions. The drag’n’drop feature contained in the File Manager operates just as well on all main OS’s.
Right–click context menus
See the whole set of readily available file managing possibilities with just a mouse–click
Because of the right–click menus we have included with the File Manager, it’s possible to change all of your files easier than ever. Click on a file or directory and from the panel that will appear, choose the activity that you like. You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete virtually any chosen file. If you click on a folder, you will also view the option to create a different sub–folder or file inside it.
Whenever you choose many different files or folders, it’s possible to use the exact same measures for all of them concurrently.
Handle enormous files effortlessly
Due to the integrated archive/unarchive option, the File Manager really helps to deal with enormous files and never have to use FTP. You’re able to reduce the size of a folder to a compact size by clicking on the Compress button or access the belongings in an archived folder using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a folder or a collection of files, you are able to choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and also the name of the archive file.
Online file editors
Revise files from your Web Hosting Control Panel
Through the File Manager it’s possible to edit your files directly on the net using the included tools. The text editor reveals the files in a plain text format, the code editor has syntax emphasizing for your personal .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor makes it possible to view your edits while they show up live. All the changes you come up with and keep will be reflected promptly on the net, so it’s possible to examine them inside your browser and get back to create extra modifications, if not satisfied.
There’s no need to download your files, to modify them through your machine and then to re–upload them into your account. All the editors are available via the buttons near the top of the file table or at the right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All of your files arranged in a simple to use way
The File Manager shows all of the files and directories in a simple to implement alphabetical order. All of the files related to the different hosts are arranged within distinct folders that are referred to as after their individual domains, allowing you to efficiently acknowledge them. This is actually useful in managing a couple of web sites at the same time. There isn’t any chance to get lost or to feel confused among the plethora of data files and folders inside your hosting account.
