Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, online file management tools have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Nevertheless, with the File Manager featured in the REL Web Hosting Web Control Panel, you won’t just employ a quick, responsive and time and effort saving file supervision interface, but also a software tool that will make an external FTP software unnecessary. Consider several of the functions that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The simplest approach to publish files
Adding data files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and quite an insecure method for transmitting files from your desktop machine or notebook to a web hosting server. That’s why, we have included drag & drop file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the files that you want to publish from your computer into your Internet browser and they will begin to publish in your hosting account over a secure SSL communication.
You don’t have to deploy any extra software, web browser add–ons or apps. The drag & drop feature operates equally well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
Find out all of the easily accessible file control options with simply a mouse–click
Because of the right–click menus that we have put into the File Manager, you are able to revise your files incredibly easy. Click on a file or directory and from the panel that will actually pop up, pick the actions that you like. It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any picked file. Should you click on a folder, additionally, you’ll see the option to create a completely new sub–folder or file inside.
Whenever you choose different files or folders, it is possible to use identical procedures for all of them simultaneously.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Not like nearly all file management user interfaces and FTP clients, the REL Web Hosting Web Control Panel offers a way to archive/unarchive files faster. It is easy–to–navigate. To have a directory reduced into a compact size, simply select it and click on the Compress button. To unwrap the belongings of an archived directory within your hosting account, choose it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager uses many file extensions, for example .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
The quickest approach to change your files
The File Manager will allow you to edit your files on the server without having to download, adjust and subsequently re–upload them. You are able to adjust your files instantly online, by using the built in editors. You will find a code editor equipped with syntax emphasizing for your .PHP or .JS files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, along with a regular text editor for the more experienced users.
You have access to every file editor when using the right–click contextual menus. All of the changes made to the files are reflected at once online – you’re able to directly preview them inside your browser.
A logical folder structure
Your files structured in an intuitive way
When you are managing a couple of web sites concurrently, it is important to have every little thing arranged. With some other File Managers, updating a lot of websites in the exact same website hosting account can be quite tricky. Using the File Manager, you’ll see that it’s in fact pretty easy. Every single site has its own directory, which you can at once identify, including all of the files related to the given web site are placed there.
And to make things even easier, you will find there’s a drop–down navigation from which you can quickly pick on which host you would like to work inside the File Manager. Our intelligent system will lead you there within seconds.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager developed for the general public
Most web File Managers are slow and complex to make use of. They have constrained possibilities and typically are not really convenient–to–use. We strive to improve that with the REL Web Hosting File Manager. It was meant to be easy–to–use and also to seem like a product you you are already familiar with – the File Manager on your desktop.
All its capabilities, the drag & drop file upload options, the right–click context menus, the built in file editors, etcetera are available for 1 purpose – to help make taking care of your web site(s) less of a challenge.
Work with multiple files
Transform an array of files simultaneously
It is easy to work with a large number of files simultaneously when using the multi–selection capacity of the REL Web Hosting File Manager. What you need to do is just press the Control key and click on the files or directories that you like to select. If you’d like to choose a group of files/folders in a row immediately, pick the first file/folder, click the Shift key and afterwards click on the very last file or folder inside the group.
If you have selected the desired files/folders, you can either drag them to a different location, or apply various actions to them using the right–click contextual menu or the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest way to take care of your details
There is one prevalent route to shield a folder using a password – by making an .htaccess file. If, however, you aren’t technologically skilled enough, you will have difficulties carrying it out on your own. To help with making things easy, we have integrated a simple to use password protection interface to the File Manager obtainable in the Web Control Panel.
