Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web–based file managers have always been slow and poorly featured. Yet, when using the File Manager included in the Real Web Services Online Control Panel, you won’t just have a speedy, responsive and easy–to–work–with file administration interface, but also a software instrument that will make a third–party FTP software unneeded. Have a look at some of the features that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated way to publish data files
Posting data files with an FTP tool is an out–of–date and quite an unsafe way for transferring data files from your computer to a web server. This is why, we have integrated drag–and–drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Just drag the data files that you need to add from your desktop into your Internet browser and they will begin to publish in your website hosting account over a risk–free SSL connection.
You don’t have to deploy any extra software, browser extensions or applications. The drag & drop feature operates just as well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Find out all of the easily accessible file control options with only a mouse–click
Due to the right–click menus we’ve integrated in the File Manager, you’ll be able to alter your files easier than ever. Simply click on a file or directory and through the pop–up panel, choose the actions you want. You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete virtually any chosen file. If you click a folder, additionally, you will see the solution to establish a different sub–folder or file inside.
Whenever you choose many different files or directories, it’s possible to apply identical measures for all of them at the same time.
Handle substantial files easily
Thanks to the internal archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager will allow you to deal with huge files and not having to use FTP. You can easily shrink a folder into a lightweight size by clicking on the Compress button or access the contents of an archived folder by using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a list of files, you’ll be able to choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and also the title of the archive file.
Online file editors
The most rapid way to adjust your files
Our File Manager will allow you to edit your files on the hosting server without having to download, adjust and after that re–upload them. You are able to customize your files straight away on the net, by making use of the built in editors. We provide a code editor having syntax displaying for your .PHP or .JS files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, plus a regular text editor for the more expert customers.
You can access each file editor making use of the right–click context menus. All corrections produced to the files are demonstrated at once online – you’re able to directly examine them within your web browser.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured with an easy–to–use way
All the files inside your cloud hosting account are sorted into folders. Each web host does have its main folder, which uses the file hierarchy that you’ve defined. This way, it is really easy to maintain all of your hosts in one place without any risk of getting lost or perplexed.
By default, you will see each of the hosts conveniently contained in a table and if you click once over a given host, you will observe each of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking on two times, you will visit a webpage that’s focused entirely on that host alone. A different way to open the folder associated with a given host and to work with it solely, is to use the drop–down menu towards the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
Control your files with only a click
The Real Web Services File Manager was developed in such a manner to make you feel just like making use of the file explorer on your desktop. It boasts a possibility to drag your files and to drop them with a desired area and indicates all of the readily available edit alternatives upon clicking the right computer mouse button. At the same time, the tool comes with an inbuilt file preview solution and other file editors that will help edit your files right away from your Online Control Panel.
In addition, we’ve enclosed a set of file management posts and how–to training videos to help you quickly find out how to work with the tool.
Work with multiple files
Modify multiple files simultaneously
It’s easy to manage a plethora of files concurrently using the multi–selection ability of the Real Web Services File Manager. All that you should do is simply hold down the Control key and click on the files or folders you want to select. If you want to pick a number of files/folders in a row simultaneously, pick the first file/folder, press the Shift key and afterwards pick the final file or folder within the group.
If you have chosen the wanted files/folders, you can either drag them to a distinct place, or use different activities to them making use of right–click contextual menu or the buttons at the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to take care of your data
There is a single widespread approach to guard a folder with a password – by making an .htaccess file. In case, however, you aren’t technologically experienced sufficiently, you’ll have trouble doing it without any help. To help make things easy, we’ve included a convenient–to–use password protection interface to the File Manager available in the Online Control Panel.
To employ the option, simply right–click on a folder and pick Password Protection. Following that add the user name as well as the password which you want to apply and then press the button. That’s it. The chosen directory is undetectable from the standard users and will also be accessible just to approved account holders.
