Applied as FTP software alternatives, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poorly featured. However, with the File Manager featured in the Savant Hosting Site Control Panel, you won’t only employ a rapid, intuitive and time and effort saving file management client, but also a software instrument that will make a third party FTP application unnecessary. Check out a few of the functions that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated way to add data files
Posting files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and really insecure way of transferring data files from your desktop computer or notebook to a server. By reason of this, we have included drag–and–drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Simply pull the files that you need to add from your PC into your Internet browser and they will begin to upload in your website hosting account over a protected SSL communication.
You do not have to install any extra software package, browser add–ons or applications. The drag–and–drop capability works just as well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
All of the file control possibilities at hand
We have always given our best to make the File Manager as user–friendly as it can be, so it’s possible to make changes for your files. Apart from the standard command bar at the top of the page, we have additionally introduced right–click contextual menus with the simple file administration possibilities. Just click on a file or folder and choose the action that you would like within the collection which will pop up.
You’re able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you select with simply a mouse–click. If you click on a directory, you can also generate a brand new folder or file in it.
The right–click option is conveniently obtainable whenever you pick different files or folders simultaneously.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Not like the majority of file management interfaces as well as FTP clients, the Savant Hosting Site Control Panel boasts a solution to archive/unarchive files faster. It is really user–friendly. To get a directory shrunk to a compact size, simply pick it and then click the Compress button. To open the items in an archived directory in your web hosting account, pick it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager works with a range of file extensions, just like .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Integrated file editors
No third–party programs are required
We have bundled a set of file editors within the Site Control Panel to help you out create quick and simple changes in your files without needing to apply third party software. With the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that will help you monitor all the current changes that you create right away, a code editor which includes syntax displaying for your personal .JS or .PHP files, in addition to a plain text editor for more expert users. Any changes you come up with and save can be reflected promptly on the Internet.
You can access the file editors using the buttons near the top of the file table and also by right–clicking a particular file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All of your files structured inside an easy–to–use method
When you are managing a lot of different websites concurrently, it is crucial that you have every little thing sorted. With other File Managers, modifying a number of web sites in the same web hosting account is quite tricky. Using the File Manager, you’ll find that it is in fact really simple. Each web site does have its own folder, that you can quickly acknowledge, and all the files associated with the given web site are located there.
And to make things even easier, you will find a drop–down menu where it’s easy to pick on which host you intend to work in the File Manager. Our clever system will take you there in no time.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager designed for people
Most web File Managers are slow and challenging to apply. They supply limited functions and generally aren’t really uncomplicated. We aim to improve that by means of the Savant Hosting File Manager. It is meant to be intuitive and to look like something you already know – the File Manager on your personal computer system.
All of its features, the drag’n’drop file upload solutions, the right–click context menus, the integrated file editors, etcetera exist for one reason – to make taking care of your website(s) more simple.
Work with multiple files
Transform a lot of files at the same time
With the Savant Hosting File Manager, you can select many different files or directories exactly like you do on your desktop machine or notebook. Simply hold down the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and then click the desired files/folders. In case you would like, to choose lots of files/folders at once, click on a single file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any other file or folder.
When you have picked all the files that you’ll require, it’s possible to drag them into a distinct directory, or make use of the right–click contextual menu to see a list of the accessible actions.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest way to take care of your details
There’s a single standard technique to shield a directory using a pass word – by making an .htaccess file. If, however, you are not technically competent enough, you will have issues performing it all by yourself. To help make things straightforward, we have included a convenient password protection interface to the File Manager accessible in the Site Control Panel.
To employ this option, simply right–click on a directory and pick Password Protection. Following that decide on the user name and the pass word that you’d like to employ and press the button. That’s all. The selected directory is concealed from the regular website visitors and will also be accessible to approved users.
