Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, web file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in capabilities. However, when using the File Manager featured in the Contact Web Hosting Web Site Control Panel, you won’t just employ a fast, intuitive and easy–to–use file managing client, but also a software instrument that will make a 3rd party FTP program unneeded. Have a look at some of the features that we have integrated into our File Manager.

Drag ’n’ drop file uploads

The easiest method to upload files

Adding data files with an FTP client is an obsolete and really insecure way for switching files from your desktop computer or notebook to a web hosting server. For this reason, we have included drag’n’drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Just pull the data files that you want to publish from your desktop computer into your Internet browser and they will begin to upload in your hosting account over a safe SSL connection.

There is no need to deploy any extra computer software, web browser plug–ins or applications. The drag & drop feature performs equally well on Windows, Linux or Mac.

Right–click context menus

Manage your files with a click of the mouse

The vast majority of File Managers list all of the activities that one can perform on a file or folder on the top of the webpage. We believe the latter is just not intuitive enough. With the File Manager, you have access to all of the file control choices at the time you right–click a file or directory. This approach is also valid for a group of files/folders.

You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you choose with simply a click of the mouse.

Archive/Unarchive files

Handle substantial files efficiently

On account of the built in archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager will allow you to use large files and not have to use FTP. You can easily shrink a directory into a compact size by simply clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the belongings in an archived directory using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a couple of files, you are able to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) along with the name of one’s archive file.

Online file editors

Modify files from your Web Site Control Panel

Through the File Manager it is possible to modify your files directly online by making use of many of the built–in tools. The text editor displays the files in a plain text file format, the code editor provides syntax accentuating for your personal .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor lets you to see all the modifications as they show up live. All the changes that you create and save will be demonstrated quickly online, meaning you can preview them with your web browser and get back to create more edits, if you are not happy with the result.

You don’t have to download any files, to change them through your personal computer and to re–upload them back to your hosting account. All the editors are accessible through the buttons at the top of the file table or from your right–click context menus.

A logical folder structure

Your files structured in an easy–to–use way

Each of the files in your web hosting account are structured into folders. Each web host has its own primary folder, which uses the file structure which you have selected. Using this method, it is an easy task to manage all of your current hosts in one place without any chance of becoming lost or perplexed.

By standard, you’ll see all of the hosts conveniently mentioned in a table and if you click once over a specific host, you’ll see all of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking twice, you will visit a page that is devoted to that host alone. An additional way to load the folder related to a particular host and to work with it solely, is using the drop–down menu towards the top of the primary File Manager file table.

Work with multiple files

Transform a number of files simultaneously

With the Contact Web Hosting File Manager, you can pick out many different files or directories like you do on your desktop machine or laptop. Simply hold down the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and then click the desired files/folders. Or, to pick a good amount of files/folders at once, click a single file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any other file or folder.

Once you’ve chosen all of the files that you’ll require, it is easy to drag them to a specified location, or take advantage of the right–click contextual menu to see an index of the accessible features.

1–click password protection options

The easiest way to secure your information

Password protection is the perfect method to reduce the ability to access a selected part of your web site that you do not want to be obvious to every one. As an example, this could be a safe and secure members’ area or, perhaps an area with copyrighted information that you would like exclusively certain customers to reach.

Within the File Manager you can actually password–protect your web site or possibly a selected directory inside with just a mouse–click. Just right–click a folder, pick Password Protection and specify your user name as well as security password. You don’t have to take care of .htaccess files or to generate any other adjustments. From now on, only the visitors that have your login name and security password will be able to access your site.
