Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web–based file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in features. However, using the File Manager included in the DASOFT TECHNOLOGIES Online Control Panel, you won’t only employ a blazingly fast, responsive and user–friendly file managing software, but also an instrument that will make a third party FTP software unnecessary. Take a look at some of the characteristics that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The easiest method to publish data files
Adding data files with an FTP tool is an outdated and really insecure method for transmitting data files from your desktop machine or laptop to a server. This is why, we have integrated drag’n’drop file publish support in the File Manager. Simply pull the files that you want to publish from your PC into your web browser and they’ll start to upload in your web hosting profile through a protected SSL communication.
You do not have to deploy any extra computer software, web browser extensions or web apps. The drag–and–drop capability performs equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
All file control options at hand
We have tried to make File Manager as user–friendly as possible, so you can produce alterations for your files. Apart from the common control bar near the top of the page, we have furthermore designed right–click context menus with the fundamental file control choices. Simply click on a file or folder and choose the actions which you want from the list which will pop–up.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you select with merely a click of the mouse. When you click a folder, it’s also possible to make a completely new directory or file inside it.
The right–click option is conveniently obtainable whenever you pick many different files or folders simultaneously.
Deal with huge files incredibly easily
Because of the in–built archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager allows you to deal with big files without the need to use FTP. It is simple to pack a directory to a lightweight size by clicking on the Compress button or get the contents of an archived folder by using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a bunch of files, you can also select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) as well as the title of one’s archive file.
Integrated file editors
No third–party applications are required
We’ve incorporated a set of file editors within the Online Control Panel so that you can make quick and easy alterations to your files and never having to implement third party software packages. Within the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that will help check all the changes you create live, a code editor which includes syntax displaying for one’s .JS or .PHP files, as well as a plain text editor for more competent users. Any changes you generate and save are going to be reflected instantly online.
You have access to the file editors making use of the buttons at the top of the file table or by right–clicking a given file/folder.
A logical folder structure
Your files arranged with a convenient–to–use manner
Each of the files within your hosting account are organized into folders. Every single host has its own primary directory, which employs the file structure you have selected. This way, it is really straightforward to manage all of your hosts from a single place without the chance of getting lost or baffled.
By standard, you will notice all the hosts conveniently indexed in a table and when you mouse–click once over a given host, you will observe each of the sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking twice, you are going to go to a page that is focused on that host exclusively. A different way to load the folder associated with a given host and also to work with it solely, is to use the drop–down menu at the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager made especially for regular people
The majority of online File Managers are slow–moving and quite difficult to use. They give you reduced possibilities and are not really user–friendly. We aim to improve that with the DASOFT TECHNOLOGIES File Manager. It was developed to be easy–to–use and to appear to be a product you are already well aware of – the File Manager on your personal computer system.
All of its functions, the drag–and–drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the inbuilt file editors, etc. are there for 1 purpose – to make managing your site(s) more convenient.
Work with multiple files
Transform a number of files at the same time
You can work with many files simultaneously making use of the multi–selection capacity of the DASOFT TECHNOLOGIES File Manager. What you need to do is simply press the Control key and then click on the files or directories that you would like to pick. If you want to pick a group of files/folders in a row simultaneously, pick the first file/folder, press the Shift key and then click on the very last file or folder inside the set.
For people with selected the wanted files/folders, you can either drag them to a specific location, or use a variety of actions to them making use of right–click context menu or maybe the buttons at the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest way to protect your data
If you wish to password–secure a directory within your website, you will have to make an .htaccess file by yourself. However, this is time–consuming and complex if you’re not a specialist in Linux web hosting. Thanks to the File Manager, you can create a password–secured directory and hide its items from the general public with simply a number of clicks.
Everything you should execute is right–click a folder, pick Password Protection and then pick the Add selection. After that simply select a user name as well as a security password. No further configuration is required and there’s no reason to handle an .htaccess file. Our platform will take care of every little thing for you.
