Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Still, when using the File Manager featured in the IMP Web Solutions Web Hosting Control Panel, you won’t only employ a fast, responsive and time and effort saving file managing client, but also an app that will make a 3rd party FTP application unneeded. Take a look at a few of the characteristics that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add data files without any difficulty
Transferring data files between your desktop machine and any of your websites is right now quick and simple, because of the drag–and–drop feature available from the File Manager. You can drag data files from your personal computer and drop them in your Web Hosting Control Panel through a secure SSL communication. That’s all. It requires seconds to upload a file and a little bit longer for the bigger data files and directories.
It is not necessary to deploy any third party software or Internet browser extensions. The drag’n’drop function contained in the File Manager works equally well on all main OS’s.
Right–click context menus
All file control options at your disposal
We have aimed to make the File Manager as easy–to–use as feasible, so you can easily create changes for your files. Besides the typical control bar towards the top of the webpage, we have now also designed right–click context menus with the general file management choices. Just click on a file or directory and select the action which you want within the selection which will show up.
You can easily rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you decide using a mouse–click. If you click on a folder, additionally you can set up a completely new directory or file within it.
The right–click choices are available as well any time you pick different files or folders at the same time.
Handle massive files conveniently
On account of the integrated archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager helps you to use enormous files with no need to use FTP. You can shrink a directory into a small size by simply clicking on the Compress button or access the contents of an archived directory through the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a couple of files, it is also possible to choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) in addition to the name of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
Manage files straight from your Web Hosting Control Panel
From the File Manager you can modify your files directly on the net employing any of the integrated software instruments. The text editor displays the files with a plain text formatting, the code editor provides syntax displaying for your personal .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor makes it possible for you to see your changes when they appear live. Also, all changes you create and save can be shown promptly on the net, so you can preview them with your browser and get back to create more modifications, if you are not happy with the result.
You don’t have to download your files, to modify them on your personal computer and to re–upload them back into your cloud hosting account. Each of the editors are accessible via the buttons at the top of the file table or from your right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured in a simple manner
All of the files inside your website hosting account are organized into directories. Each and every host does have its primary directory, that follows the file hierarchy that you’ve pre–set. In this way, it is an easy task to take care of all of your hosts in one place with no risk of getting lost or baffled.
By default, you’ll see all the hosts placed in a table and if you mouse–click once on a specific host, you will see each of the sub–folders and files pertaining to it. By clicking on twice, you are going to go to a page which is focused on that host alone. A different way to load the folder pertaining to a particular host and to use it exclusively, is to try using the drop–down menu towards the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
Control your files with simply a mouse–click
The IMP Web Solutions File Manager is developed in such a way to make you feel just like handling the file explorer on your desktop. It provides you with a solution to drag your files and to drop them in a desired area and shows all the obtainable modification opportunities upon clicking the right mouse button. Furthermore, the tool provides an integrated file preview option and other file editors allowing you to change your files live straight from your Web Hosting Control Panel.
Furthermore, we have included a collection of file management articles and how–to instructional videos to help you out rather quickly find out how to make use of the tool.
Work with multiple files
Adjust a variety of files at the same time
It’s easy to work with numerous files all at once employing the multi–selection capability of the IMP Web Solutions File Manager. What you need to do is just press the Control key and then click on the files or directories that you’d like to choose. Should you want to pick a selection of files/folders in a row at the same time, click the first file/folder, press the Shift key and afterwards choose the last file or folder in the selection.
If you have picked the wanted files/folders, you can either drag them to a specific location, or use diverse actions to them using the right–click context menu or the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to protect your information
If you wish to password–secure a folder in your site, you will need to set up an .htaccess file by hand. Having said that, this could be time–consuming and complex if you’re not well–trained in web hosting. Thanks to the File Manager, you can make a password–protected directory and conceal all of its contents from the standard users with only a few mouse–clicks.
Everything you should do is right–click a directory, select Password Protection and then pick the Add option. After that simply identify a user name and also a password. No further configuration is required and there’s no need to address an .htaccess file. Our system will take care of everything on your behalf.
