Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web file management tools have always been slow and poor in features. However, when using the File Manager included in the Foxetech Hosting Online Control Panel, you won’t just employ a blazingly fast, responsive and time and effort saving file managing interface, but also a software tool that will make a third party FTP application unneeded. Take a look at some of the functions that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple method to publish files
Posting files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and really insecure way for transferring data files from your desktop machine or laptop to a web server. That’s why, we have included drag’n’drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Just drag the data files that you need to upload from your computer into your web browser and they will start to publish in your website hosting profile over a risk–free SSL connection.
There is no need to set up any extra computer software, browser plug–ins or web apps. The drag & drop capability performs equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Manage all of your with a click of the mouse
Most File Managers specify all of the activities that you can execute with a file or directory at the top of the web page. We think that the latter is just not intuitive enough. With the File Manager, you can access all file managing options at the time you right–click a file or folder. This option is likewise applicable for different files/folders.
You can actually rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or folder you decide on with only a click of the mouse.
Deal with big files effectively
Due to the integrated archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager allows you to handle big files with no need to use FTP. You can pack a directory to a lightweight size by clicking on the Compress button or access the contents of an archived folder using the Extract button. When compressing a directory or a list of files, you will be able to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and then the title of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
The most rapid approach to change your files
Foxetech Hosting’s File Manager helps you to revise your files on the hosting server and never have to download, adjust and re–upload them. You’ll be able to revise your files instantly on the net, by using Foxetech Hosting’s built–in editors. We provide a code editor with syntax highlighting for your .PHP or .JS files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, in addition to a regular text editor for more experienced customers.
You can access every single file editor using the right–click contextual menus. All of the corrections made to the files will be reflected at once online – it is easy to directly preview them within the browser.
A logical folder structure
All your files arranged with a simple to use manner
All the files within your hosting account are organized into directories. Each and every host does have its primary folder, which employs the file structure that you have pre–set. By doing this, it is simple to maintain all of your current hosts from one location without risk of becoming lost or confused.
By default, you will see all the hosts listed in a table and if you mouse–click once over a given host, you will observe the whole set of sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking two times, you will visit a page that is focused entirely on that host alone. An additional way to open the folder pertaining to a specific host and also to use it solely, is to try using the drop–down menu towards the top of the main File Manager file table.
