Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software substitutes, web–based file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in capabilities. Still, using the File Manager included in the Orange Hosting Web Hosting Control Panel, you will not only have a blazingly fast, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file administration interface, but also a tool that will make a 3rd party FTP application unneeded. Have a look at some of the features that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple method to upload data files
Publishing data files with an FTP client is an obsolete and really unsafe way of transmitting data files from your notebook or computer to a hosting server. Because of this, we have included drag’n’drop file publish support in the File Manager. Just pull the data files that you need to upload from your desktop into your browser and they will start to upload in your web hosting account over a safe SSL connection.
There is no need to mount any additional software package, browser plug–ins or web apps. The drag–and–drop functionality performs just as well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Find out the whole set of readily available file administration options with just a mouse–click
Because of the right–click menus that we have included on the File Manager, it is possible to edit your files easier than ever. Click on a file or directory and from the panel which will pop up, select the actions that you’d like. You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete virtually any chosen file. If you click on a folder, furthermore, you will see the solution to establish a different sub–folder or file inside.
Whenever you choose many different files or folders, it is possible to use identical procedures to all of them simultaneously.
Work with substantial files easily
Due to the integrated archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager allows you to use large files without having to use FTP. You’re able to reduce the size of a directory to a lightweight size by clicking on the Compress button or access the items in an archived directory through the Extract button. When compressing a directory or a bunch of files, it will be easy to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) as well as the title of the archive file.
Online file editors
Manage files directly from your Web Hosting Control Panel
From the File Manager you can easily edit your files directly on the net by using some of the integrated software instruments. The text editor displays the files with a plain text formatting, the code editor features syntax highlighting for your personal .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor makes it possible to see all the modifications as they show up online. Any changes that you generate and keep can be shown immediately on the world wide web, allowing you to preview them in your own Internet browser and go back to create extra edits, in case you are not happy with the result.
It is not necessary to download any files whatsoever, to modify them in your machine and then to re–upload them into your cloud hosting account. Each of the editors are found via the buttons at the top of the file table or from the right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
Your files sorted with a convenient–to–use way
The File Manager displays all of the files and folders using an easy–to–understand alphabetical order. All the files related to the various hosts are structured into independent directories that are named following their individual domain names, which means you can quickly acknowledge them. This is actually useful in controlling a number of sites simultaneously. There is no chance to stray or to feel really confused amongst the large number of data files and directories in your hosting account.
To access the files with a specific host, simply pick it from the drop–down navigation at the top of the file table. Alternatively, you’ll be able to double–click on its directory and you will be at once transported to a table listing its files only.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager made for real people
Dealing with all of your files is natural and quick employing the Orange Hosting Web Hosting Control Panel. You’ll enjoy a file control atmosphere that is very close to your desktop computer’s file explorer. You’ll be able to drag & drop files and manage all of them with a right click of the mouse. Using the included review option, you can observe visuals the same as they will be on the Internet, and via the integrated file editors you can make improvements for your files in real time.
Any time you need help managing your files, you’re able to consult the massive selection of articles and how–to instructional videos, which you could get using a mouse–click.
Work with multiple files
Modify a lot of files at the same time
Orange Hosting’s File Manager can save you a lot of time whenever using different files. You can actually pick multiple files at any given time and apply a pre–selected action to them just like you do in your computer. To choose random files at once, simply hold down the Control key, and to select a list of adjoining files, use the Shift key. It’s that easy.
After getting picked the files, you are able to instantly transfer them to an additional location when using the drag–and–drop option. With the help of the right–click contextual menu and also the buttons on top of the file table, you’ll be able to apply a number of other actions – you’ll be able to copy, rename, delete, download and alter your files, transform file permissions, etcetera.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest way to guard your information
There is one prevalent approach to protect a folder with a password – by generating an .htaccess file. If, however, you’re not technologically experienced sufficiently, you will have issues doing the work all on your own. To make things easy for you, we’ve included a convenient–to–use password protection user interface to the File Manager accessible inside the Web Hosting Control Panel.
To use the option, just right–click on a folder and pick Password Protection. Following that submit the username plus the password that you want to work with and click on the button. That’s it. Now the particular directory is going to be hidden by the regular website visitors and will be accessible just to approved visitors.
