Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The easiest method to publish files
Submitting files with an FTP tool is an outdated and really insecure method for shifting files from your desktop computer or laptop to a web hosting server. Because of this, we have included drag–and–drop file upload support in the File Manager. Simply pull the data files that you want to publish from your computer into your web browser and they will begin to publish in your hosting profile through a safe SSL communication.
There is no need to set up any extra software pack, web browser add–ons or programs. The drag & drop feature operates equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
All file administration possibilities at hand
We’ve tried to make the File Manager as user–friendly as it could possibly be, so it is possible to produce alterations for your files. Besides the standard command bar at the top of the webpage, we have now also integrated right–click contextual menus with all the current general file managing choices. Simply click on a file or directory and choose the action you want within the selection which will show up.
You’re able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you select with only a mouse–click. If you click on a folder, you should also generate a new folder or file inside it.
The right–click choice is conveniently obtainable when you pick numerous files or folders simultaneously.
Work with large files efficiently
Due to the built–in archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager will let you make use of substantial files without the need to use FTP. You’ll be able to shrink a folder to a small size by simply clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the contents of an archived directory using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a directory as well as a group of files, you will be able to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and then the name of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
The easiest method to change your files
The File Manager lets you alter your files directly on the server without the need to download, modify and afterwards re–upload them. You’re able to modify your files instantly on the Internet, employing the in–built editors. We provide a code editor offering syntax highlighting for your .PHP or .JS files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, and a regular text editor for more competent customers.
You have access to every single file editor with the right–click contextual menus. All corrections made to the files will appear promptly online – you’re able to directly preview them inside the web browser.
A logical folder structure
All of your files organized in a straightforward way
All of the files in your cloud hosting account are structured into folders. Every host features its own primary folder, that uses the file structure that you’ve created. Using this method, it is really easy to maintain all of your current hosts in one location with no chance of getting lost or perplexed.
By default, you’ll see each of the hosts conveniently listed in a table and when you click once on a given host, you’ll see all the sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking twice, you are going to visit a webpage which is focused on that host only. Another way to load the folder associated with a specific host and to use it exclusively, is by using the drop–down menu at the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
Command your data with only a click of the mouse
The Critchfield Web Hosting Services File Manager has been made in such a way to help you feel just like handling the file explorer on your computer. It provides you with a way to drag your files and then to drop them in a desired area and displays all of the readily available edit opportunities after clicking the right computer mouse button. In addition, the tool provides an in–built file preview option and other file editors enabling you to modify your files live from your Web Site Control Panel.
Also, we’ve provided a group of file management posts and how–to educational videos to guide you to fairly quickly learn how to work with the tool.
Work with multiple files
Adjust multiple files all at once
When using the Critchfield Web Hosting Services File Manager, you can easily select a number of files or folders like you do on your laptop or computer. Simply press the Control (Command for Mac) key and then click the required files/folders. Or, to select a lot of files/folders at the same time, click a single file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
Once you have chosen the whole set of files that you want to, it is easy to drag them into a different folder, or make use of the right–click contextual menu to check out a list of the accessible activities.
1–click password protection options
The easiest way to guard your information
Password protection is the greatest option to reduce the means to access a specialized section of your website which you don’t want to be exposed to everyone. For example, this can be a secure members’ place or, perhaps an area with copyrighted data that you would like just specific individuals to access.
From your File Manager it is easy to password–secure your site or perhaps a particular directory within it with only a mouse–click. Simply right–click a directory, choose Password Protection and define the login name and pass word. You don’t have to address .htaccess files or to try to make any extra configurations. In the future, simply the site visitors which have your user name and pass word will gain access to your web site.
