Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client substitutes, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poorly featured. However, when using the File Manager integrated in the zoboz.net Web Site Control Panel, you will not only have a rapid, intuitive and easy–to–use file managing software, but also a software tool that will make an external FTP application unneeded. Check out several of the characteristics that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add data files without any difficulty
Moving files between your personal computer and any of your web pages is right now quick and simple, because of the drag’n’drop functionality delivered by the File Manager. You can easily drag data files from your personal computer and drop them in the Web Site Control Panel via secure SSL communication. That’s all. It will take just a few seconds to add a file and a little bit longer for any larger data files and folders.
You don’t need to put in any third–party software package or web browser add–ons. The drag & drop functionality contained in the File Manager performs equally well on all major operating systems.
Right–click context menus
Discover all of the readily available file management possibilities with simply a click of the mouse
On account of the right–click menus we’ve included in the File Manager, it is possible to alter your files in a time and effort saving manner. Simply click on a file or folder and from the panel that will pop up, decide on the actions that you would like. It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete virtually any selected file. When you click a folder, you will also view the option to establish a new sub–folder or file inside.
If you choose different files or folders, it’s possible to apply the same actions to all of them at the same time.
Deal with huge files easily
Because of the inbuilt archive/unarchive option, the File Manager will allow you to handle large files and never have to use FTP. You can easily pack a folder into a small size by clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the contents of an archived directory using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a folder as well as a list of files, it is also possible to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and the title of the archive file.
Integrated file editors
Zero third–party software is required
We have bundled a set of file editors inside the Web Site Control Panel to help you out come up with quick and simple alterations to your files and never have to make use of any third party software packs. Within the File Manager you will find a WYSIWYG editor that will help monitor all the current changes you generate live, a code editor that includes syntax emphasizing for your personal .JS or .PHP files, and a plain text editor for more competent users. Any changes which you make and save can be reflected at once online.
You have access to the file editors using the buttons at the top of the file table or by right–clicking a specific file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All of your files structured in a straightforward way
All of the files within your web hosting account are organized into directories. Every host has its own main directory, that follows the file structure that you have pre–set. This way, it is really easy to maintain all of your hosts from one location with no risk of getting lost or baffled.
By default, you’ll see all the hosts conveniently placed in a table and if you click once on a specific host, you’ll see the whole set of sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking twice, you are going to go to a page that is centered on that host alone. A different way to open the folder associated with a given host and also to use it exclusively, is using the drop–down menu near the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager designed for real people
Working with all of your files is natural and hassle–free employing the zoboz.net Web Site Control Panel. You’ll enjoy a file managing environment that is not far from your desktop PC’s file explorer. It is possible to drag and drop files and handle them with a right mouse–click. When using the built–in review solution, you can see photos just like they will appear on the web, and via the built–in file editors you can make adjustments to your files immediately.
If you would like help maintaining your files, you are able to take a look at the big array of posts and how–to instructional videos, that you can get using a mouse–click.
Work with multiple files
Change numerous files at the same time
The File Manager can save you a lot of time when making use of many different files. It is easy to select different files simultaneously and use a pre–selected action to them like you do on your home PC. To pick arbitrary files at once, simply click the Control key, and to choose a couple of nearby files, use the Shift key. It is that easy.
After getting selected the files, you are able to at once move them to another place when using the drag–and–drop option. By making use of the right–click context menu as well as the buttons above the file table, you’ll be able to use a variety of other actions – it’s possible to copy, rename, delete, download and revise your files, change file permissions, etc.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to protect your data
There is a single widespread way to secure a directory with a password – by creating an .htaccess file. In case, however, you aren’t technically competent sufficiently, you will have trouble performing it without any help. To help with making things easy, we’ve designed a simple to use password protection interface to the File Manager obtainable within the Web Site Control Panel.
To use this option, just right–click on a directory and select Password Protection. Then decide on the username as well as the password that you like to employ and then press the button. That’s all. The particular folder is undetectable from the regular website visitors and will also be accessible only to authorized account holders.
