Used as FTP client alternatives, online file management tools have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Yet, when using the File Manager built in the JoshWho Hosting Control Panel, you won’t only have a rapid, intuitive and time and effort saving file management interface, but also an application that will make a 3rd party FTP application unnecessary. Take a look at several of the functions that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple approach to add files
Adding data files with an FTP client is an outdated and really unsafe way for relocating files from your laptop or computer to a hosting server. By reason of this, we have integrated drag–and–drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Just drag the files that you want to add from your computer into your Internet browser and they will begin to upload in your website hosting profile through a protected SSL communication.
There is no need to mount any additional computer software, web browser plug–ins or web apps. The drag–and–drop capability operates equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Manage all of your with merely a mouse–click
The vast majority of File Managers list all the activities you can conduct over a file or directory at the top of the page. We feel that this is not intuitive enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you can access all file administration options whenever you right–click a file or folder. This method is also applicable for many different files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or folder you select with simply a mouse–click.
Manage enormous files incredibly easily
Because of the inbuilt archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager will let you use substantial files and not have to use FTP. You can pack a folder to a compact size by simply clicking on the Compress button or get the items in an archived directory through the Extract button. Whenever compressing a directory as well as a collection of files, it’s possible to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and also the title of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
Modify files straight from your Control Panel
From your File Manager it is easy to change your files instantly online when using many of the integrated tools. The text editor reveals the files with a plain text formatting, the code editor features syntax emphasizing for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor really helps you to see your changes while they show up online. Any changes that you generate and save are going to be displayed automatically on the Internet, which means you can examine them with your browser and go back to make more changes, if you are not happy with the result.
You don’t have to download any files, to edit them with your desktop computer and then to re–upload them back into your cloud hosting account. All the editors are available using the buttons at the top of the file table or from your right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured with a simple to use manner
Each of the files within your cloud hosting account are sorted into folders. Each web host features its own main directory, which uses the file hierarchy that you have defined. By doing this, it is really an easy task to control all of your hosts from a single place without any chance of getting lost or puzzled.
By default, you will see each of the hosts placed in a table and if you click once over a specific host, you’ll see the whole set of sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking two times, you will go to a webpage that’s devoted to that host only. An alternative way to open the folder pertaining to a specific host and then to use it solely, is to try using the drop–down menu at the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager devised for real people
Managing your files is natural and simple using the JoshWho Hosting Control Panel. You’ll try a file managing setting that’s very close to your desktop PC’s file explorer. You’re able to drag & drop files and manage them with a right mouse–click. Thanks to the built in review option, you can view images in the same way they will appear on the Internet, and via the bundled file editors you can create adjustments for your files quickly.
If you want support taking care of your files, you can easily consider the massive selection of articles and how–to educational videos, which you could find with simply a click of the mouse.
Work with multiple files
Modify a lot of files at the same time
You can handle a plethora of files at the same time using the multi–selection capacity of the JoshWho Hosting File Manager. All you should do is simply hold down the Control key and click on the files or directories you want to pick. In order to pick a pair of files/folders in a row at the same time, pick the first file/folder, click the Shift key and afterwards click on the very last file or folder inside the set.
For people with selected the required files/folders, you can either drag them to a specific place, or employ various actions to them using the right–click context menu or maybe the buttons at the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest way to take care of your details
There is one standard route to safeguard a directory using a security password – by making an .htaccess file. In case, however, you aren’t technically skilled enough, you will have difficulty performing it all on your own. To help make things straightforward, we have included a simple to use password protection user interface to the File Manager obtainable within the Control Panel.
To use the option, simply right–click on a directory and pick Password Protection. After that add the login name plus the password that you’d like to use and click on the button. That’s it. The picked folder is undetectable by the regular website visitors and will also be accessible just to approved account owners.
