Used as FTP software alternatives, web file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in features. Yet, with the File Manager integrated in the DuoServersHost Hosting Control Panel, you won’t only have a quick, responsive and easy–to–work–with file managing software, but also a software tool that will make an external FTP application unnecessary. Check out some of the functions that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated way to add files
Posting files with an FTP client is an obsolete and quite an unsafe way for transmitting data files from your personal computer to a web server. For this reason, we have included drag’n’drop file upload support in the File Manager. Just pull the files that you need to add from your desktop computer into your web browser and they will start to publish in your web hosting account over a risk–free SSL connection.
You don’t have to deploy any extra software package, web browser add–ons or apps. The drag & drop function works equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
All of the file managing choices in front of you
We have tried to make File Manager as user–friendly as feasible, so it is possible to come up with modifications to your files. Apart from the traditional control bar at the top of the web page, we have now also included right–click contextual menus with all the basic file managing options. Simply click on a file or directory and pick the activity that you like through the collection which will show up.
You can easily rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide with simply a click of the mouse. In the event you click a folder, you should also set up a brand new directory or file within it.
The right–click option is also available whenever you pick many different files or folders simultaneously.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Distinct from the vast majority of file management interfaces and FTP clients, the DuoServersHost Hosting Control Panel offers a way to archive/unarchive files faster. It is really user–friendly. To have a folder reduced into a lightweight size, all you need to do is choose it and then click the Compress button. To unwrap the contents of an archived folder within your website hosting account, choose it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager supports various file extensions, just like .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Integrated file editors
No third party software packs are needed
We’ve incorporated a number of file editors inside the Hosting Control Panel to help you out produce quick and easy changes to your files without the need to implement third–party applications. In the File Manager you will find a WYSIWYG editor that can assist you check all the recent changes you generate live, a code editor that includes syntax displaying for your .JS or .PHP files, together with a plain text editor for more experienced users. Any changes which you make and keep can be shown instantly on the Internet.
You have access to the file editors using the buttons at the top of the file table as well as by right–clicking a given file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All your files organized in an intuitive way
Each of the files in your cloud hosting account are sorted into folders. Every single host features its own primary directory, that follows the file hierarchy which you have defined. Using this method, it is an easy task to take care of all your hosts in one place without any chance of getting lost or confused.
By standard, you will see all of the hosts conveniently listed in a table and when you click once over a given host, you will see the whole set of sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking two times, you will visit a webpage that’s focused entirely on that host exclusively. An alternative way to open the folder associated with a certain host and also to work with it exclusively, is by using the drop–down menu towards the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager intended for the people
The vast majority of online File Managers are slow and very difficult to work with. They have reduced functions and certainly are not really straightforward. We aim to improve that with the DuoServersHost File Manager. It was developed to be user–friendly and also to look like an item you are already well aware of – the File Manager on your personal computer system.
All its functions, the drag–and–drop file upload options, the right–click context menus, the integrated file editors, etcetera are available for a single reason – to make maintaining your website(s) a lot easier.
Work with multiple files
Transform a lot of files concurrently
It is simple to manage a great number of files simultaneously when using the multi–selection ability of the DuoServersHost File Manager. All that you should do is hold down the Control key and click on the files or directories that you would like to pick. If you want to choose a couple of files/folders in a row simultaneously, click on the first file/folder, hold down the Shift key and afterwards click on the last file or folder in the group.
If you have picked the desired files/folders, you can drag them to a specific spot, or use diverse activities to them using the right–click context menu or maybe the buttons at the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to secure your details
There is a single standard technique to protect a directory with a security password – by generating an .htaccess file. If, however, you’re not technologically qualified sufficiently, you will have issues executing it by yourself. To help make things easy, we’ve included a convenient password protection interface to the File Manager readily available within the Hosting Control Panel.
To use the option, just right–click on a folder and choose Password Protection. After that fill in the user name and the password which you want to make use of and press the button. That’s it. Now the chosen directory is going to be undetectable from the standard users and will also be accessible only to previously approved visitors.
