Used as FTP client alternatives, web–based file managers have always been slow and poorly featured. Still, with the File Manager built in the Supreme Web Servers Web Site Control Panel, you won’t only have a quick, responsive and easy–to–work–with file administration software, but also an app that will make a 3rd party FTP software unnecessary. Consider some of the characteristics that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple approach to upload data files
Uploading data files with an FTP tool is an outdated and really insecure way for shifting files from your desktop computer or notebook to a server. Because of this, we have integrated drag’n’drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Simply pull the data files that you need to add from your desktop into your Internet browser and they’ll begin to upload in your hosting account through a secure SSL communication.
You don’t have to set up any extra software package, browser add–ons or programs. The drag–and–drop functionality performs just as well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus
All file administration choices at hand
We’ve tried to make the File Manager as easy–to–use as it can be, so you can make modifications to your files. In addition to the traditional command bar towards the top of the webpage, we have now furthermore introduced right–click context menus with the general file managing choices. Simply click on a file or folder and select the actions which you want from the collection that will appear.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide using a mouse–click. If you click a folder, it’s also possible to make a different directory or file in it.
The right–click choice is also available when you select many different files or folders simultaneously.
Manage huge files incredibly easily
On account of the internal archive/unarchive option, the File Manager allows you to handle big files never having to use FTP. It is simple to reduce the size of a directory to a lightweight size by simply clicking on the Compress button or get the contents of an archived folder by using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a couple of files, it will be easy to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) along with the title of one’s archive file.
Integrated file editors
No third–party software packs are needed
We have enclosed a pair of file editors inside the Web Site Control Panel to enable you to generate quick and easy alterations in your files without having to employ any third party applications. Inside the File Manager you can find a WYSIWYG editor that can assist you check any changes that you generate instantly, a code editor that has syntax accentuating for your .JS or .PHP files, as well as a plain text editor for more experienced customers. Any changes that you create and save will be reflected instantaneously online.
You can access the file editors making use of the buttons near the top of the file table and also by right–clicking a certain file/folder.
A logical folder structure
Your files arranged in a convenient–to–use manner
Each of the files inside your cloud hosting account are neatly arranged into folders. Every single web host does have its main folder, which uses the file hierarchy you have pre–set. Using this method, it is really easy to take care of all of your current hosts from one location without the chance of getting lost or baffled.
By default, you will notice all the hosts conveniently mentioned in a table and if you mouse–click once over a specific host, you will observe each of the sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking two times, you are going to visit a page that’s focused on that host alone. A further way to load the folder pertaining to a specific host and to work with it exclusively, is using the drop–down menu towards the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager created for the people
The vast majority of online File Managers are slow and hard to use. They provide reduced possibilities and typically are not really easy–to–work–with. We strive to improve that with the Supreme Web Servers File Manager. It’s meant to be time and effort saving and to seem like an item you you are already familiar with – the File Manager on your PC.
All of its attributes, the drag’n’drop file upload solutions, the right–click context menus, the internal file editors, etc. are there for a single reason – to make maintaining your site(s) much easier.
Work with multiple files
Modify multiple files all at once
Our File Manager will help you save a plenty of time whenever using multiple files. You can actually choose many different files at any given time and use a preferred activity for them just like you do on your laptop. To choose arbitrary files at the same time, just click the Control key, and to choose a couple of adjacent files, use the Shift key. It is that simple.
Once you have selected the files, you can actually instantly move them to a different location when using the drag & drop option. By making use of the right–click contextual menu along with the buttons above the file table, you are able to apply a variety of other actions – you are able to copy, rename, delete, download and alter your files, adjust file permissions, etcetera.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to secure your details
To password–protect a directory within your site, you need to set up an .htaccess file manually. To no surprise, this can be time–demanding and sophisticated if you aren’t well–experienced in website hosting. With the File Manager, you may create a password–protected folder and conceal its items from the general public with only a handful of clicks.
All you have to execute is right–click a folder, choose Password Protection and afterwards click on the Add option. After that just indicate a user name along with a security password. No supplemental setup is required and there is no reason to handle an .htaccess file. Our system will manage every little thing for you.
