Take a look at the attributes included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most straightforward way to upload files
Uploading files with an FTP client is an outdated and quite an unsafe method for relocating data files from your notebook or computer to a web hosting server. This is why, we have included drag’n’drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Just pull the data files that you need to upload from your PC into your browser and they will start to publish in your hosting profile over a risk–free SSL communication.
There is no need to mount any extra software package, web browser plug–ins or web apps. The drag & drop functionality works equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Handle all files with only a mouse–click
A large number of File Managers list all the actions that you can conduct with a file or directory at the top of the web page. We feel the latter is just not properly arranged. Thanks to the File Manager, you can access all file management choices whenever you right–click a file or directory. This option is also applicable for different files/folders.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you choose using a mouse–click.
Be in charge of archives with a click of the mouse
The File Manager is equipped with an internal archive/unarchive option that will assist you submit enormous archives and then extract them in your cloud hosting account within seconds. Any time compressing a file or folder, it is possible to select the title for the archive which is to be created along with its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Furthermore, it’s possible to compress existing folders or files with merely a mouse–click.
The archive/unarchive solution you can find at the File Manager enables you to use substantial files directly from your Web Hosting Control Panel. No reason to work with any third party software such as an FTP client in an effort to upload a huge file to your account or download any archive on your desktop.
Online file editors
The quickest solution to revise your files
The File Manager will allow you to revise your files directly on the web server never having to download, change and then re–upload them. It is possible to customize your files directly on the Internet, making use of the integrated editors. You will find a code editor provided with syntax highlighting for your .PHP or .JS files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, along with a standard text editor for the more expert users.
You can access every file editor using the right–click contextual menus. All alterations made to the files will appear immediately online – you can directly examine them within the web browser.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured in a simple way
All the files in your hosting account are neatly organized into directories. Each and every host features its own main folder, that employs the file structure which you have defined. Using this method, it is not difficult to control all of your hosts in one place with no chance of becoming lost or perplexed.
By standard, you will notice each of the hosts conveniently listed in a table and if you click once on a given host, you’ll see all of the sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking on twice, you are going to go to a webpage that’s dedicated to that host only. One other way to open the folder pertaining to a specific host and also to work with it exclusively, is by using the drop–down menu near the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager intended for regular people
The vast majority of web File Managers are slow and quite difficult to use. They feature modest options and are not really intuitive. We strive to transform that by means of the Five Star Web Hosting File Manager. It’s designed to be intuitive and to appear to be something you are already well aware of – the File Manager on your computer.
All its features, the drag’n’drop file upload options, the right–click context menus, the built–in file editors, etc. exist for just one reason – to make handling your site(s) easier.
Work with multiple files
Modify many different files all at once
It is simple to manage many files concurrently when using the multi–selection ability of the Five Star Web Hosting File Manager. Everything you should do is press the Control key and then click on the files or directories that you want to pick. If you wish to choose a variety of files/folders in a row at the same time, click on the first file/folder, hold down the Shift key and then click on the last file or folder within the collection.
When you have chosen the required files/folders, you can drag them to a distinct place, or use various activities to them when using the right–click contextual menu or the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to secure your information
To password–secure a directory on your site, you need to configure an .htaccess file by hand. Having said that, this is time–absorbing and sophisticated if you are not well–experienced in website hosting. Thanks to the File Manager, you can make a password–protected directory and hide all its contents from any users with only a number of clicks.
All you need to execute is right–click a folder, pick Password Protection and afterwards choose the Add option. After that simply indicate a user name and a pass word. No further setup is necessary and there’s no reason to handle an .htaccess file. Our platform will manage every thing for you.
