Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Yet, using the File Manager included in the The Tech Guy Website Control Panel, you won’t only have a rapid, responsive and user–friendly file supervision software, but also a software instrument that will make an external FTP software unneeded. Take a look at several of the capabilities that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple way to upload data files
Submitting files with an FTP tool is an out–of–date and quite an insecure method for transmitting files from your desktop machine or notebook to a server. That’s why, we have integrated drag’n’drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Simply pull the data files that you need to upload from your desktop computer into your Internet browser and they will start to upload in your web hosting account over a protected SSL communication.
There is no need to install any additional software package, browser extensions or applications. The drag & drop functionality performs just as well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus
Manage your files with only a mouse–click
Most File Managers include all of the actions that one can execute over a file or folder at the top of the page. We believe that the latter isn’t properly arranged. Using the File Manager, you have access to all file management choices any time you right–click a file or directory. This method is likewise applicable for different files/folders.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or folder you decide on with just a mouse–click.
Handle huge files incredibly easily
Due to the integrated archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager will let you deal with huge files without the need to use FTP. You’ll be able to shrink a folder into a lightweight size by clicking on the Compress button or access the contents of an archived directory using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a collection of files, you will be able to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) in addition to the title of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
The easiest method to modify your files
Our File Manager allows you to revise your files directly on the server and never have to download, modify and then re–upload them. You can actually adjust your files instantly on the Internet, working with our internal editors. We offer a code editor equipped with syntax displaying for your .JS or .PHP files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, in addition to a standard text editor for more competent customers.
You can access each file editor through the right–click contextual menus. All of the alterations produced to the files are reflected quickly online – you’ll be able to directly examine them within your browser.
A logical folder structure
All your files arranged with a user–friendly manner
All of the files in your web hosting account are neatly arranged into directories. Every single host has its own main directory, that uses the file structure that you’ve selected. By doing this, it is very easy to manage all your hosts from a single location without any probability of getting lost or confused.
By standard, you will see all the hosts conveniently placed in a table and if you click once over a given host, you will observe all the sub–folders and files pertaining to it. By clicking on twice, you will go to a web page that’s dedicated to that host exclusively. A further way to load the folder related to a specific host and then to work with it solely, is using the drop–down menu at the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager developed for people
Most web File Managers are slow–moving and very difficult to employ. They give you modest functions and are not really simple to use. We seek to transform that by means of the The Tech Guy File Manager. It was built to be time and effort saving and to appear to be an item you are already well aware of – the File Manager on your PC.
All of its attributes, the drag & drop file upload solutions, the right–click context menus, the built–in file editors, etcetera exist for a single reason – to create taking care of your site(s) more simple.
Work with multiple files
Adjust numerous files concurrently
Using the The Tech Guy File Manager, you can pick out many different files or directories precisely like you do notebook or desktop computer. Simply keep pressed the Control (Command for Mac OS) key and click on the wanted files/folders. If you would like, to select a lot of files/folders simultaneously, just click one file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
When you have chosen all of the files that you require, it is possible to drag them into a different folder, or take advantage of the right–click contextual menu to view a summary of the available actions.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to protect your data
There is one standard technique to protect a directory with a security password – by generating an .htaccess file. If, however, you aren’t technologically competent enough, you’ll have difficulties doing the work all on your own. To help with making things straightforward, we’ve added a time and effort saving password protection interface to the File Manager readily available in the Website Control Panel.
To use this option, just right–click on a folder and select Password Protection. After that decide on the username and the security password that you like to implement and press the button. That’s all. The chosen directory will be undetectable by the regular website visitors and will be accessible to approved account holders.
