Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, online file managers have always been slow and poor in capabilities. However, using the File Manager built in the HostYara Website Control Panel, you won’t just have a quick, intuitive and time and effort saving file supervision software, but also an instrument that will make an external FTP software unnecessary. Consider a few of the features that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple method to add data files
Adding data files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and quite an insecure way for transporting data files from your desktop computer or laptop to a web server. For this reason, we have included drag–and–drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the files that you need to add from your desktop computer into your browser and they will start to publish in your web hosting account through a secure SSL communication.
You do not have to mount any additional software pack, browser add–ons or applications. The drag–and–drop functionality works just as well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Virtually all file control choices readily available
We’ve aimed to make the File Manager as user–friendly as it could possibly be, so it is easy to produce alterations to your files. Apart from the regular control bar near the top of the webpage, we have now additionally added right–click context menus with the simple file administration options. Just click on a file or folder and pick the action you’d like to have within the list that will appear.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you choose with simply a mouse–click. Should you click a directory, you can also set up a completely new folder or file in it.
The right–click option is conveniently obtainable at the time you select many different files or folders simultaneously.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Compared to most file management interfaces as well as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the HostYara Website Control Panel offers a solution to archive/unarchive files way quicker. It is really straightforward. To get a directory shrunk to a small size, just pick it and click on the Compress button. To unwrap the items in an archived directory within your cloud hosting account, choose it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager supports a number of file extensions, just like .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
The best way for you to revise your files
Our File Manager permits you to edit your files on the server without having to download, modify and re–upload them. You can actually adjust your files straight away on the Internet, using HostYara’s included editors. We supply a code editor using syntax highlighting for your .JS or .PHP files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, as well as a standard text editor for more skilled end users.
You can access every file editor when using the right–click context menus. All of the changes produced to the files will be reflected immediately online – you’re able to directly examine them inside your Internet browser.
A logical folder structure
Your files arranged with a straightforward manner
The File Manager shows all files and folders in a simple to implement alphabetical arrangement. All the files related to the different hosts are structured into independent directories that are named following their respective domain names, so you can quite easily acknowledge them. This really is useful when you are managing a range of sites simultaneously. There is no chance to stray or to feel really baffled amidst the plethora of data files and folders within your hosting account.
To gain access to the files within a given host, just choose it in the drop–down navigation at the top of the file table. Alternatively, it is possible to double–click on its folder and you are at once sent to a table listing its files exclusively.
A user–friendly interface
Handle your data with just a click of the mouse
The HostYara File Manager is created in such a way to help you feel just like handling the file explorer on your personal computer. It boasts a way to drag your files and then to drop them with a preferred location and reveals all the available edit alternatives upon clicking the right computer mouse button. Furthermore, the tool features an internal file preview solution as well as other file editors enabling you to change your files live straight from your Website Control Panel.
Additionally, we’ve incorporated a set of file management articles and how–to video tutorials to enable you rather quickly learn how to make use of the tool.
Work with multiple files
Change many different files at the same time
With the HostYara File Manager, you can choose a number of files or folders like you do on your desktop machine or laptop. Just keep pressed the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and click on the desired files/folders. If you would like, to choose a lot of files/folders simultaneously, click on one file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
Once you have selected each of the files that you need, you’ll be able to drag them to a pre–selected location, or take advantage of the right–click contextual menu to find out a listing of the available activities.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to shield your data
To password–secure a folder in your site, you will have to set up an .htaccess file by hand. Having said that, this is time–absorbing and complicated if you aren’t an expert in computing. With our File Manager, you can create a password–secured folder and hide all its contents from the general public with merely a handful of mouse–clicks.
All you need to undertake is right–click a directory, pick Password Protection and click the Add selection. Then simply define a username as well as a pass word. No more setup is necessary and there is no reason to address an .htaccess file. Our platform will handle everything on your behalf.
