When using the ASG Web Hosting Web Control Panel, you will get access to our feature–rich File Manager. It’ll allow you to promptly control your web sites without the need to turn to an FTP software. You could upload data files through a protected connection by simply pulling them into the browser. Additionally, you can promptly archive and unarchive files and directories, set password–protected locations, change file permissions and so much more. Take a look at the attributes built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated approach to upload files
Posting files with an FTP client is an obsolete and really unsafe way for moving files from your laptop or computer to a web server. Because of this, we have included drag’n’drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Just pull the files that you want to add from your desktop into your browser and they will start to publish in your web hosting account over a secure SSL communication.
You don’t need to set up any extra software pack, browser add–ons or applications. The drag–and–drop function works equally well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
Check out the whole set of available file management options with merely a mouse–click
Because of the right–click menus that we have integrated in the File Manager, you are able to alter all of your files in a time and effort saving manner. Simply click on a file or folder and through the panel that will actually pop up, opt for the actions that you like. It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any chosen file. When you click a folder, you will also see the option to create a completely new sub–folder or file inside.
If you choose multiple files or directories, it is possible to use the same measures to all of them at the same time.
Handle substantial files effectively
Because of the built–in archive/unarchive option, the File Manager helps you to handle big files with no need to use FTP. You are able to reduce the size of a directory into a lightweight size by clicking on the Compress button or get the contents of an archived directory by using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a folder as well as a bunch of files, you can also choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and the name of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
Change files from your Web Control Panel
Through the File Manager you’ll be able to change your files instantly online by using many of the integrated software tools. The text editor reveals the files with a plain text format, the code editor provides syntax accentuating for your .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor really helps you to preview your modifications while they appear live. All the changes which you generate and save can be demonstrated promptly on the Internet, so it’s possible to review them with your web browser and return to generate further changes, if unhappy.
You don’t have to download any files whatsoever, to revise them through your personal computer and to re–upload them back into your web hosting account. All the editors are found through the buttons at the top of the file table or at the right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
Your files organized inside a straightforward method
When you’re handling a number of websites simultaneously, it’s crucial that you have everything arranged. With some other File Managers, editing a multitude of sites inside the exact same hosting account could be very difficult. Using the File Manager, you’ll see that it’s actually rather easy. Every single website features its own directory, that you’ll instantly identify, and all of the files pertaining to the given website are situated there.
And also to make things so much easier, you will find there’s a drop–down navigation where it’s easy to pick on exactly which host you wish to work in the File Manager. Our smart system will take you there within seconds.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager made for the general public
The majority of online File Managers are slow–moving and challenging to make use of. They provide modest functions and aren’t really intuitive. We strive to improve that with the ASG Web Hosting File Manager. It’s designed to be user–friendly and also to appear like something you know – the File Manager on your desktop.
All its features, the drag–and–drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the integrated file editors, etc. are there for just one reason – to help make taking care of your site(s) a lot easier.
Work with multiple files
Adjust various files simultaneously
When using the ASG Web Hosting File Manager, you’re able to pick a wide range of files or folders just like you do on your desktop machine or laptop. Just keep pressed the Control (Command for Mac) key and then click the wanted files/folders. Or, to pick a lot of files/folders at once, click one file/folder, press the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
Once you have chosen all of the files that you need, you can drag them to a different folder, or use the right–click context menu to check out a list of the accessible activities.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to secure your details
If you wish to password–secure a directory within your website, you have got to configure an .htaccess file manually. However, this is time–demanding and complex if you aren’t well–trained in computing. When using the File Manager, you can make a password–protected folder and hide all of its items from the visitors with simply several mouse–clicks.
What you need to complete is right–click a directory, pick Password Protection and then pick the Add option. After that just identify a username as well as a pass word. No more setup is needed and there’s no reason to handle an .htaccess file. Our system will take care of everything for you.
