Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, web file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Nonetheless, with the File Manager featured in the Sun Spring Hosting Hosting Control Panel, you will not only have a blazingly fast, intuitive and user–friendly file supervision client, but also a software instrument that will make an external FTP software unnecessary. Check out some of the functions that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add data files with ease
Transferring data files between your desktop computer and any of your web pages is right now easy and quick, because of the drag’n’drop option offered by the File Manager. You could drag data files from your PC and drop them in your Hosting Control Panel through a secure SSL connection. That’s all. It will take just a few seconds to publish a file and a little bit longer for larger files and folders.
You do not have to set up any third–party computer software or Internet browser add–ons. The drag’n’drop feature built into the File Manager works equally well on all main operating systems.
Right–click context menus
Manage your files with merely a mouse–click
Most File Managers specify all of the actions you can perform within a file or directory at the top of the webpage. We think that the latter is just not properly arranged. With the File Manager, you have access to all of the file managing choices whenever you right–click a file or directory. This method is also valid for many different files/folders.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you choose with a mouse–click.
Work with huge files incredibly easily
Thanks to the built in archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager will allow you to use big files without having to use FTP. You can easily reduce the size of a directory to a lightweight size by clicking on the Compress button or access the contents of an archived directory through the Extract button. When compressing a folder as well as a list of files, you will be able to choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and the title of the archive file.
Online file editors
The quickest way to alter your files
The File Manager helps to manage your files on the server and never have to download, adjust and then re–upload them. It’s possible to change your files directly on the net, by using the internal editors. We offer a code editor with syntax emphasizing for your .JS or .PHP files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, plus a regular text editor for the more skilled end users.
You can access every file editor through the right–click contextual menus. All alterations made to the files are reflected immediately online – it’s possible to directly preview them in your web browser.
A logical folder structure
All of your files sorted out in an easy–to–use approach
If you are in charge of a variety of web sites simultaneously, it is crucial for you to have everything organized. With many other File Managers, revising a number of sites inside the same hosting account can be quite tricky. Using the File Manager, you will find that it is actually rather easy. Every single web site does have its own folder, which you’ll immediately acknowledge, including all of the files pertaining to the specified web site are found there.
And also to make things even easier, we have a drop–down menu where you can quickly select on which host you want to work in the File Manager. Our clever system will take you there within seconds.
A user–friendly interface
Maintain your data with merely a click of the mouse
The Sun Spring Hosting File Manager was developed in such a manner as to make you feel like using the services of the file explorer on your computer system. It boasts a possibility to drag your files and to drop them inside a preferred area and reveals all of the obtainable edit options after clicking the right computer mouse button. Furthermore, the tool comes with a built in file preview solution as well as other file editors that will help you edit your files right away directly from your Hosting Control Panel.
Furthermore, we’ve listed a collection of file management posts and how–to instructional videos to enable you quickly learn how to make use of the tool.
Work with multiple files
Adjust a number of files simultaneously
You can make use of a huge amount of files concurrently using the multi–selection ability of the Sun Spring Hosting File Manager. Everything you need to do is just hold down the Control key and click on the files or directories which you want to choose. In order to select a range of files/folders in a row at once, click the first file/folder, press the Shift key and afterwards pick the last file or folder inside the group.
When you have selected the desired files/folders, you may either drag them to an alternative place, or apply different activities to them using the right–click context menu or maybe the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to protect your details
There is a single prevalent way to shield a directory using a password – by creating an .htaccess file. If, however, you aren’t technically competent enough, you will have difficulty executing it without any help. To help with making things easy for you, we have integrated an uncomplicated password protection user interface to the File Manager accessible inside the Hosting Control Panel.
To make use of this option, simply right–click on a folder and select Password Protection. Then choose the login name plus the pass word that you would like to work with and then press the button. That’s all. The chosen folder is going to be concealed by the regular website visitors and will also be accessible only to previously approved account holders.
