Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, online file management tools have always been slow and poor in capabilities. Nevertheless, using the File Manager integrated in the Webbia Online Control Panel, you won’t only have a blazingly fast, responsive and easy–to–use file administration client, but also an instrument that will make a third party FTP application unnecessary. Check out some of the characteristics that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The simplest way to upload data files
Publishing data files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and quite an insecure way for transmitting data files from your desktop machine or laptop to a web server. Because of this, we have included drag & drop file publish support in the File Manager. Simply pull the files that you need to add from your desktop computer into your web browser and they’ll start to upload in your web hosting account through a secure SSL communication.
You do not have to deploy any extra software, web browser extensions or web apps. The drag–and–drop function operates just as well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
Look at all of the readily available file management possibilities with merely a click
Thanks to the right–click menus we have included in the File Manager, it is possible to change your files easier than ever. Just click on a file or folder and with the panel that will show up, choose the actions that you want. You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any chosen file. Should you click on a folder, you can also view the option to make a different sub–folder or file inside.
If you select many different files or directories, it’s possible to use the exact same procedures for all of them concurrently.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
As opposed to the majority of file management user interfaces and FTP clients, the Webbia Online Control Panel has a way to archive/unarchive files noticeably faster. It is really straightforward. To get a folder shrunk to a compact size, all you need to do is choose it and click on the Compress button. To open up the contents of an archived folder in your web hosting account, choose it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager works with several different file extensions, which include .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Integrated file editors
Zero third–party software is required
We have incorporated a group of file editors inside the Online Control Panel so you can come up with quick and simple improvements to your files and never have to make use of any third–party apps. In the File Manager you can find a WYSIWYG editor that will help monitor any changes which you come up with live, a code editor which includes syntax emphasizing for one’s .PHP or .JS files, together with a plain text editor for more competent users. All the changes you create and save will be reflected at once online.
You can access the file editors making use of the buttons at the top of the file table and also by right–clicking any file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All of your files sorted with a convenient–to–use way
When you are working with a couple of web sites concurrently, it is important to have every little thing organized. With some other File Managers, modifying a large number of web sites within the exact same account could be very difficult. With the File Manager, you will find that it’s actually pretty simple. Every web site features its own folder, which you can instantly identify, and all of the files related to the specific website can be found there.
And then to make things so much easier, we have a drop–down menu from where it’s easy to pick on which web host you intend to work in the File Manager. Our smart system will take you there in seconds.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager devised for the general public
The majority of online File Managers are sluggish and complex to use. They give you modest possibilities and certainly are not really simple to use. We strive to improve that by means of the Webbia File Manager. It was built to be intuitive and to seem like something you you’re already familiar with – the File Manager on your personal computer.
All its capabilities, the drag & drop file upload solutions, the right–click context menus, the built in file editors, etcetera are there for a single reason – to help make taking care of your site(s) much simpler.
Work with multiple files
Change different files simultaneously
Using the Webbia File Manager, you’re able to choose various files or directories exactly like you do on your desktop machine or notebook. Simply press the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and then click the required files/folders. Or, to pick multiple files/folders at once, click one file/folder, press the Shift key and then click any other file or folder.
After you have selected each of the files that you require, you’re able to drag them to a specified directory, or use the right–click context menu to find out a list of the accessible activities.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to shield your data
If you wish to password–protect a folder on your site, you need to configure an .htaccess file by yourself. However, this generally is time–consuming and complex if you’re not an expert in web hosting. With our File Manager, you can create a password–protected folder and hide its contents from the general public with merely a handful of clicks.
All you have to complete is right–click a folder, pick Password Protection and click the Add selection. After that simply define a user name and a security password. No more configuration is necessary and there is no reason to address an .htaccess file. Our system will take care of every little thing for you.
