Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client substitutes, web–based file management tools have always been slow and poor in features. Still, using the File Manager included in the Elite Web Agents Web Hosting Control Panel, you will not only have a rapid, intuitive and easy–to–use file supervision client, but also a software instrument that will make a third–party FTP application unneeded. Consider a few of the capabilities that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most straightforward way to upload files
Uploading data files with an FTP tool is an outdated and really insecure way of moving files from your desktop computer or notebook to a web server. Because of this, we have included drag–and–drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Just pull the files that you need to upload from your desktop into your web browser and they will begin to publish in your hosting profile over a safe SSL connection.
There is no need to set up any extra software, web browser add–ons or programs. The drag–and–drop function operates just as well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Manage all files with merely a click of the mouse
Most File Managers specify all the activities that one can carry out over a file or directory at the top of the page. We feel that the latter is not user–friendly enough. Using the File Manager, you can access all of the file administration choices when you right–click a file or directory. This approach is also valid for a lot of files/folders.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide with just a mouse–click.
Manage huge files effortlessly
Because of the built in archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager really helps to make use of big files and never have to use FTP. You can reduce the size of a directory into a lightweight size by clicking on the Compress button or get the contents of an archived folder by using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a directory or a number of files, it is also possible to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) in addition to the name of the archive file.
Integrated file editors
No third party software packages are necessary
We have integrated a collection of file editors in the Web Hosting Control Panel to guide you create quick and easy alterations in your files without the need to make use of any third–party software packages. In the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that will help keep an eye on all the recent changes that you come up with right away, a code editor that boasts syntax displaying for one’s .PHP or .JS files, as well as a plain text editor for more experienced customers. All the changes that you come up with and keep are going to be demonstrated instantly on the web.
You can access the file editors using the buttons at the top of the file table and also by right–clicking a given file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All of your files arranged in user–friendly way
All of the files in your hosting account are structured into folders. Every host features its own main folder, which uses the file hierarchy that you have defined. This way, it is very easy to manage all of your hosts from one place without the chance of becoming lost or confused.
By standard, you will see each of the hosts conveniently listed in a table and when you mouse–click once over a given host, you will see all of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking twice, you are going to visit a web page which is focused on that host exclusively. An additional way to open the folder associated with a specific host and also 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
Maintain your files with only a click
The Elite Web Agents File Manager has been made in such a manner as to help you feel just like using the file explorer on your PC. It features a solution to drag your files and then to drop them inside a preferred area and shows all the obtainable modification alternatives on clicking the right computer mouse button. Furthermore, the tool features an inbuilt file preview option as well as other file editors that will help revise your files live directly from your Web Hosting Control Panel.
Also, we’ve listed a collection of file management posts and how–to video tutorials so that you can fairly quickly learn how to make use of the tool.
Work with multiple files
Adjust a lot of files concurrently
When using the Elite Web Agents File Manager, you can pick a lot of files or folders just like you do on your PC. Simply press the Control (Command for Mac OS) key and then click the desired files/folders. Or, to pick a considerable amount of files/folders simultaneously, click on a single file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
Once you’ve chosen all the files that you need, you’re able to drag them to a different location, or use the right–click context menu to view a list of the available actions.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to shield your information
If you wish to password–secure a folder within your website, you need to create an .htaccess file by hand. Expectedly, this is time–absorbing and sophisticated if you aren’t well–trained in Linux hosting. Using our File Manager, you may create a password–protected folder and hide all its contents from the visitors with merely a number of clicks.
What you need to complete is right–click a folder, opt for Password Protection and then click on the Add option. And then simply define a login name as well as a security password. No further setup is needed and there is no need to deal with an .htaccess file. Our system will manage everything for you.
