Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, web–based file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in capabilities. Nevertheless, when using the File Manager built in the Assurance Web Hosting Web Site Control Panel, you won’t only have a rapid, responsive and user–friendly file supervision software, but also an instrument that will make a third–party FTP application unnecessary. Check out a few of the capabilities that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The easiest method to publish data files
Submitting files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and really insecure way of transporting files from your computer to a web hosting server. That’s why, we have integrated drag’n’drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Just drag the files that you need to publish from your desktop computer into your Internet browser and they’ll start to upload in your hosting profile through a protected SSL connection.
You do not have to deploy any extra software pack, browser add–ons or apps. The drag–and–drop functionality performs equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Virtually all file management possibilities at your disposal
We’ve given our best to make your File Manager as intuitive as possible, so it is possible to generate alterations to your files. Besides the typical control bar towards the top of the page, we have also designed right–click contextual menus with all the current simple file managing options. Simply click on a file or directory and select the activity that you’d like within the list that will pop–up.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you choose using a mouse–click. When you click on a directory, you should also set up a different directory or file within it.
The right–click option is available as well if you choose numerous files or folders at once.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Compared to the vast majority of file management user interfaces and FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the Assurance Web Hosting Web Site Control Panel offers an option to archive/unarchive files faster. It is really user–friendly. To get a folder reduced into a small size, simply pick it and click on the Compress button. To open up the contents of an archived directory in your hosting account, select it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager uses numerous file extensions, just like .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
The best way to revise your files
Assurance Web Hosting’s File Manager helps to modify your files directly on the web hosting server without needing to download, adjust and then re–upload them. You are able to customize your files straight away online, applying our inbuilt editors. We offer a code editor having syntax highlighting for your .JS or .PHP files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, and also a regular text editor for the more competent customers.
You can access every single file editor with the right–click contextual menus. All corrections produced to the files are demonstrated instantaneously online – you are able to directly preview them inside the Internet browser.
A logical folder structure
All your files sorted in a straightforward method
If you are in charge of a bunch of websites simultaneously, it is essential that you have everything sorted. With other File Managers, editing a range of websites within the exact same account can be extremely tricky. Using the File Manager, you’ll see that it’s in fact pretty simple. Every web site has its own directory, that you can quickly acknowledge, including all of the files related to the specific site are placed there.
And also to make everything even easier, you will find there’s a drop–down menu from where it’s easy to choose on which host you would like to work in the File Manager. Our intelligent system will take you there within seconds.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager devised for the general public
The vast majority of web File Managers are sluggish and hard to make use of. They offer modest possibilities and certainly are not really straightforward. We strive to change that by means of the Assurance Web Hosting File Manager. It is designed to be practical and to resemble an item you you’re already familiar with – the File Manager on your PC.
All of its capabilities, the drag–and–drop file upload options, the right–click contextual menus, the integrated file editors, etcetera are available for just one reason – to help make controlling your web site(s) less complicated.
Work with multiple files
Modify numerous files all at once
When using the Assurance Web Hosting File Manager, you’ll be able to choose numerous files or folders exactly like you do on your desktop machine or laptop. Simply hold down the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and then click the desired files/folders. Or, to select a considerable amount of files/folders at once, just click a single file/folder, hold down the Shift key and then click any file or folder.
After you have selected each of the files that you’ll require, you can drag them into a pre–selected location, or make use of the right–click context menu to see a summary of the available features.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to shield your details
In order to password–secure a directory in your web site, you need to configure an .htaccess file by hand. Having said that, this generally is time–consuming and complex if you aren’t a professional in web hosting. Using our File Manager, you can make a password–protected directory and hide its contents from the public eye with a number of mouse–clicks.
Everything you should do is right–click a folder, pick out Password Protection and then click the Add option. After that simply identify a username as well as a security password. No further setup is needed and there’s no reason to deal with an .htaccess file. Our platform will handle everything for you.
