Used as FTP software substitutes, web file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in features. Nevertheless, with the File Manager integrated in the XL Web Hosting Hosting Control Panel, you won’t only have a rapid, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file managing interface, but also an app that will make a third party FTP program unnecessary. Consider a few of the characteristics that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Transfer data files to your websites effortlessly
The File Manager in your Hosting Control Panel offers a fast, drag’n’drop feature that will let you move files between your personal computer and your website hosting profile without the need to work with an FTP tool. You can easily pull files from your PC and drop them in your Hosting Control Panel with a mouse–click by using a risk–free SSL connection.
The drag & drop function is built into the Hosting Control Panel, which means you don’t have to set up any third–party software package to use it. It will also work on all major Os’s, so all you should do to make use of it is log into your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
Discover all of the readily available file managing possibilities with a click
Due to the right–click menus we have added to the File Manager, you’ll be able to revise your files incredibly easy. Just click on a file or folder and from the panel which will appear, opt for the actions that you would like. You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any selected file. If you click a folder, furthermore, you will see the solution to generate a brand new sub–folder or file within it.
If you select multiple files or directories, it is possible to apply identical procedures to all of them simultaneously.
Make use of massive files effortlessly
On account of the inbuilt archive/unarchive option, the File Manager helps you to make use of big files never having to use FTP. You can easily reduce the size of a folder to a small size by clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the items in an archived directory by using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a couple of files, it is also possible to choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and then the name of one’s archive file.
Integrated file editors
Zero third party software packs are required
We’ve incorporated a collection of file editors inside the Hosting Control Panel so that you can make quick and easy adjustments for your files without having to use any third–party apps. With the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that will help check all the changes you create live, a code editor that features syntax highlighting for your personal .JS or .PHP files, along with a plain text editor for more competent users. Any changes that you generate and save will be shown straight away on the web.
You can access the file editors when using the buttons near the top of the file table as well as by right–clicking a selected file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All your files arranged with a simple method
If you are working with several web sites simultaneously, it is important to have every little thing arranged. With many other File Managers, editing a lot of different websites in the exact same account is extremely tricky. With our File Manager, you’ll find that it’s in fact really simple. Each site has its own directory, which you’ll instantly acknowledge, and all of the files pertaining to the specific website are found there.
And also to make things so much easier, you will find there’s a drop–down navigation from where you can quickly pick on exactly which web host you intend to work in the File Manager. Our smart system will take you there in seconds.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager intended for the general public
Most online File Managers are slow and pretty difficult to use. They have modest options and typically are not really simple to use. We hope to improve that with the XL Web Hosting File Manager. It’s developed to be easy–to–use and to resemble something you already know – the File Manager on your personal computer system.
All of its features, the drag–and–drop file upload options, the right–click context menus, the inbuilt file editors, etcetera are available for just one purpose – to make taking care of your site(s) a lot easier.
Work with multiple files
Change an array of files at the same time
XL Web Hosting’s File Manager will save you a lot of time when making use of numerous files. You’re able to select multiple files at the same time and use a preferred activity for them exactly like you do in your desktop computer or notebook. To choose random files at once, simply click the Control key, and to choose a group of adjacent files, press the Shift key. It is that simple.
Once you have chosen the files, you can automatically transfer them to an additional spot thanks to the drag–and–drop option. By making use of the right–click context menu along with the buttons on top of the file table, you can actually apply a variety of other actions – it’s possible to copy, rename, delete, download and change your files, adjust file permissions, and so on.
1–click password protection options
The simplest way to shield your information
Password protection is the perfect way to confine the ability to access a selected component of your web site you don’t plan to be noticeable to everyone. As an example, this can be a secure members’ spot or, perhaps an area with copyrighted data that you would like exclusively a number of customers to reach.
In the File Manager you can password–protect your website as well as a particular directory inside with merely a click of the mouse. Simply right–click a folder, select Password Protection and define your user name and password. It is not necessary to deal with .htaccess files or to generate any additional configurations. From now on, only the site visitors which have your username and security password will be able to access your web site.
