Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client substitutes, online file management tools have always been slow and poor in features. Yet, using the File Manager featured in the Hosting Voyage Web Control Panel, you won’t just have a rapid, intuitive and easy–to–use file management interface, but also an instrument that will make a 3rd party FTP software unnecessary. Take a look at a few of the options that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Move data files to your web sites without difficulty
The File Manager in your Web Control Panel includes a fast, drag’n’drop functionality that will let you move files between your personal computer and your hosting account without having to use an FTP tool. You can drag data files from your personal computer and drop them in your Web Control Panel with a click of the mouse using a secure SSL connection.
The drag–and–drop characteristic is built–into the Web Control Panel, which means you will not need to deploy any third–party application to make use of it. It also works well on all leading Operating Systems, so all you need to do to use it is log into your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
Find all of the readily available file control options with only a mouse–click
On account of the right–click menus that we have included in the File Manager, you are able to edit your files incredibly easy. Click on a file or folder and through the panel that will actually pop up, decide on the activity that you want. It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any selected file. When you click a folder, additionally, you’ll see the solution to generate a brand new sub–folder or file inside.
When you select different files or folders, you are able to use identical measures to all of them simultaneously.
Make use of large files incredibly easily
Because of the built in archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager really helps to manage huge files never having to use FTP. You’ll be able to pack a directory to a small size by simply clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the items in an archived directory using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a couple of files, you’ll be able to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) in addition to the name of the archive file.
Online file editors
Revise files directly from your Web Control Panel
From the File Manager you can alter your files directly online applying some of the built in instruments. The text editor displays the files in a plain text formatting, the code editor has syntax accentuating for your .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor makes it possible to see all the edits as they show up online. Also, all changes which you come up with and save can be displayed at once on the web, in order for you to preview them in your own browser and get back to make more changes, if you are not happy with the result.
There is no need to download any files whatsoever, to modify them in your personal computer and then to re–upload them into your hosting account. Each of the editors are available using the buttons at the top of the file table or from your right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files arranged with an easy–to–use manner
All the files in your cloud hosting account are arranged into folders. Every host features its own primary directory, which uses the file structure you have pre–set. This way, it is easy to manage all of your hosts from one place without the chance of becoming lost or confused.
By default, you will notice all the hosts conveniently indexed in a table and if you click once on a given host, you will observe the whole set of sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking on two times, you will visit a web page that is dedicated to that host alone. Another way to open the folder related to a specific host and then to work with it exclusively, is by using the drop–down menu near the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
