Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web–based file management tools have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Nevertheless, when using the File Manager included in the INTELLILOCK Web Hosting Control Panel, you will not only employ a blazingly fast, responsive and easy–to–use file managing software, but also an application that will make a 3rd party FTP application unnecessary. Check out several of the options that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Upload data files without difficulty
Transferring data files between your PC and any of your web pages is right now quick and simple, thanks to the drag & drop option available from the File Manager. You could drag data files from your notebook or computer and drop them in the Web Hosting Control Panel over a secure SSL connection. That’s all. It takes a few seconds to add a data file and a little bit longer for larger data files and directories.
There is no need to mount any third party software package or web browser plug–ins. The drag & drop function included in the File Manager operates equally efficiently on all popular OS’s.
Right–click context menus
Virtually all file administration choices at your fingertips
We’ve aimed to make File Manager as intuitive as it can be, so it is possible to come up with changes to your files. Apart from the traditional control bar at the top of the web page, we have now also added right–click context menus with all the current simple file managing options. Click on a file or folder and pick the actions you want through the list which will pop up.
You can actually rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you choose using a mouse–click. When you click on a directory, it’s also possible to set up a different folder or file within it.
The right–click option is available as well when you select multiple files or folders at the same time.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Unlike a large number of file management user interfaces as well as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the INTELLILOCK Web Hosting Control Panel features a way to archive/unarchive files much more quickly. It is uncomplicated. To have a directory reduced to a lightweight size, just pick it and click on the Compress button. To open the items in an archived folder inside your account, pick it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager uses many file extensions, including .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Manage files from your Web Hosting Control Panel
Through the File Manager it is possible to change your files instantly online when using the in–built instruments. The text editor reveals the files with a plain text file format, the code editor features syntax accentuating for your personal .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor lets you to view your changes when they appear online. Any changes that you come up with and keep will be shown immediately online, in order for you to examine them with your web browser and get back to generate more edits, if not satisfied.
It is not necessary to download your files, to modify them in your PC and to re–upload them back to your account. All of the editors are found using the buttons at the top of the file table or through the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files arranged in an easy–to–use manner
All of the files within your website hosting account are separated into folders. Each web host features its own primary folder, that uses the file structure that you’ve pre–set. In this way, it is really straightforward to handle all your hosts from one location without the risk of becoming lost or puzzled.
By standard, you will notice all the hosts conveniently mentioned in a table and if you click once over a given host, you’ll see all the sub–folders and files pertaining to it. By clicking two times, you are going to visit a webpage which is focused on that host exclusively. An alternative way to open the folder pertaining to a given host and also to work with it exclusively, is to try using the drop–down menu near the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager devised for the general public
The vast majority of web File Managers are sluggish and quite difficult to make use of. They give you limited possibilities and are not really straightforward. We strive to improve that with the INTELLILOCK File Manager. It’s intended to be intuitive and to look like a product you already know – the File Manager on your personal computer system.
All its features, the drag–and–drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the built–in file editors, etc. exist for just one reason – to make taking care of your web site(s) less complicated.
Work with multiple files
Modify an array of files concurrently
It is easy to manage numerous files at the same time using the multi–selection ability of the INTELLILOCK File Manager. What you need to do is just press the Control key and click on the files or directories that you’d like to select. In order to pick a collection of files/folders in a row immediately, click the first file/folder, click the Shift key after which pick the final file or folder inside the group.
For people with picked the wanted files/folders, you can drag them to a different location, or apply various activities to them using the right–click context menu as well as the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
