Used as FTP software alternatives, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Yet, using the File Manager built in the CharlotteWebs Site Control Panel, you will not only employ a speedy, responsive and easy–to–use file management software, but also a software tool that will make a third party FTP software unnecessary. Consider several of the features that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most effective way to add data files
Uploading files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and quite an insecure way for moving data files from your desktop machine or notebook to a web hosting server. That’s why, we have integrated drag’n’drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the files that you need to add from your PC into your Internet browser and they will start to publish in your web hosting profile over a protected SSL communication.
There is no need to set up any additional software package, browser plug–ins or programs. The drag–and–drop functionality operates equally well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus
All of the file administration possibilities at your fingertips
We’ve aimed to make your File Manager as easy–to–use as feasible, so it’s possible to generate modifications to your files. Aside from the common control bar near the top of the webpage, we have also added right–click contextual menus with the simple file control options. Click on a file or directory and select the activity that you want from the selection which will turn up.
You’re able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you select with a click of the mouse. When you click on a folder, it’s also possible to establish a new directory or file in it.
The right–click option is also available if you pick numerous files or folders at once.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Not like a large number of file management interfaces and FTP clients, the CharlotteWebs Site Control Panel offers a way to archive/unarchive files more speedily. It is convenient. To have a folder shrunk to a lightweight size, just choose it and click on the Compress button. To open up the contents of an archived folder in your cloud hosting account, select it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager supports a wide range of file extensions, for example .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
The easiest way to adjust your files
CharlotteWebs’s File Manager helps you to modify your files directly on the web hosting server with no need to download, adjust and subsequently re–upload them. It is easy to adjust your files directly online, applying our in–built editors. Our company offers a code editor equipped with syntax emphasizing for your .PHP or .JS files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, as well as a regular text editor for more experienced end users.
You have access to each file editor with the right–click context menus. All alterations produced to the files appear quickly online – you’re able to directly examine them inside your Internet browser.
A logical folder structure
All of your files arranged in a simple manner
Each of the files inside your hosting account are structured into folders. Every single host has its own main folder, which employs the file hierarchy which you have defined. This way, it is really not difficult to handle all of your current hosts in one location with no chance of getting lost or confused.
By default, you will notice all the hosts conveniently indexed in a table and if you mouse–click once on a given host, you will see all of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking on twice, you will go to a web page that is centered on that host only. One other way to open the folder associated with a certain host and also to work with it exclusively, is to use the drop–down menu near the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager designed for real people
Working with your files is instinctive and straightforward using the CharlotteWebs Site Control Panel. You will try a file management atmosphere that is not far from your personal computer’s file explorer. You’re able to drag & drop files and deal with all of them with a right click of the mouse. Thanks to the inbuilt preview option, you will see pics in the same way they will appear on the web, and throughout the built in file editors you can make adjusts for your files quickly.
If you need assistance controlling your files, you’ll be able to take a look at the large variety of articles and how–to educational videos, that you can access with simply a mouse–click.
Work with multiple files
Change many files simultaneously
Using the CharlotteWebs File Manager, you’ll be able to pick different files or directories precisely like you do on your desktop computer or laptop. Simply hold down the Control (Command for Mac) key and then click the required files/folders. Or, to pick a good amount of files/folders at the same time, click on a single file/folder, press the Shift key and click on any other file or folder.
Having once chosen each of the files that you want to, you can drag them into a pre–selected folder, or make use of the right–click context menu to view a listing of the available features.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to secure your data
There is a single common approach to secure a directory with a security password – by generating an .htaccess file. If, however, you are not technically competent enough, you’ll have difficulties performing it by yourself. To make things simple, we’ve integrated a user–friendly password protection user interface to the File Manager readily available inside the Site Control Panel.
To employ the option, just right–click on a directory and select Password Protection. Then choose the user name as well as the pass word that you’d like to employ and press the button. That’s it. The selected folder will be concealed by the public eye and will be accessible just to previously approved account owners.
