Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, online file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in capabilities. Still, with the File Manager included in the CHFord Enterprises Hosting Control Panel, you won’t just have a fast, intuitive and time and effort saving file supervision software, but also a tool that will make an external FTP program unneeded. Check out several of the features that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Upload data files effortlessly
Moving data files between your desktop computer and any of your web pages is right now fast and simple, thanks to the drag & drop feature available from the File Manager. You could pull files from your desktop computer or laptop and drop them in the Hosting Control Panel via secure SSL connection. That’s all. It will take a few seconds to publish a data file and a bit longer for any larger data files and folders.
You do not have to put in any third–party software or Internet browser add–ons. The drag’n’drop capability included in the File Manager performs just as well on all main OS’s.
Right–click context menus
Manage all of your with merely a mouse–click
The vast majority of File Managers specify all the activities that one can conduct with a file or directory on the top of the web page. We believe the latter is not intuitive enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you have access to all of the file administration options when you right–click a file or folder. This approach is also applicable for multiple files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or folder you decide with a click of the mouse.
Handle substantial files effortlessly
Due to the internal archive/unarchive option, the File Manager makes it possible for you to deal with substantial files without the need to use FTP. You are able to pack a folder to a small size by simply clicking on the Compress button or access the contents of an archived directory by using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a directory or a collection of files, it will be easy to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and the name of the archive file.
Online file editors
The fastest method to update your files
Our File Manager makes it possible for you to alter your files entirely on the server without having to download, change and afterwards re–upload them. You’re able to revise your files directly on the net, working with CHFord Enterprises’s integrated editors. We provide a code editor equipped with syntax highlighting for your .PHP or .JS files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, along with a regular text editor for the more skilled customers.
You can access every file editor when using the right–click contextual menus. All alterations made to the files will be reflected right away online – you can easily directly preview them within the Internet browser.
A logical folder structure
Your files organized in a simple manner
All of the files in your website hosting account are separated into directories. Every host has its own main directory, which follows the file hierarchy that you’ve selected. In this way, it is an easy task to deal with all of your current hosts in one place without probability of becoming lost or confused.
By default, you’ll see all the hosts conveniently listed in a table and when you mouse–click once on a given host, you will observe each of the sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking on two times, you are going to visit a web page that is devoted to that host alone. Another way to open the folder pertaining to a given host and to use it exclusively, is to use the drop–down menu at the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager devised for real people
Dealing with your files is instinctive and effortless employing the CHFord Enterprises Hosting Control Panel. You will get a file control environment which is very close to your desktop PC’s file explorer. You’re able to drag and drop files and deal with them with a right mouse–click. Thanks to the integrated preview solution, you will see photos just like they will show up online, and throughout the in–built file editors you could make improvements to your files in real time.
If you want help managing your files, you’ll be able to refer to the big number of posts and how–to video clips, which you could access with merely a click of the mouse.
Work with multiple files
Change a lot of files all at once
You can manage a large number of files concurrently while using the multi–selection capacity of the CHFord Enterprises File Manager. All you need to do is simply hold down the Control key and click on the files or directories you want to choose. If you want to choose a list of files/folders in a row immediately, click the first file/folder, press the Shift key and then click on the last file or folder inside the collection.
For those who have chosen the wanted files/folders, you may either drag them to a different location, or implement diverse actions to them when using the right–click contextual menu or maybe the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to secure your data
There is one widespread way for you to shield a folder using a pass word – by generating an .htaccess file. If, however, you aren’t technically experienced sufficiently, you’ll have trouble doing it by yourself. To help with making things straightforward, we’ve added a convenient–to–use password protection interface to the File Manager readily available within the Hosting Control Panel.
To use this option, simply right–click on a directory and select Password Protection. After that decide on the username plus the password that you want to use and then press the button. That’s all. The selected folder is going to be concealed from the general pubic and will be available just to approved users.
