Applied as FTP client alternatives, web file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Nevertheless, using the File Manager integrated in the Robot Web Hosting Control Panel, you won’t just have a quick, responsive and easy–to–use file administration client, but also an instrument that will make an external FTP application unnecessary. Take a look at some of the characteristics that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Move files to your web pages without any difficulty
The File Manager in your Control Panel boasts a rapid, drag’n’drop feature that will allow you to transfer files between your computer and your web hosting profile without needing to use an FTP client. You can easily drag files from your personal computer and drop them in your Control Panel with a click of the mouse by using a secure SSL connection.
The drag & drop function is incorporated into the Control Panel, so that you do not need to deploy any third party computer software to work with it. It will also work on all popular Operating Systems, so all you have to do to make use of it is sign in to your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
Manage all files with just a click of the mouse
The vast majority of File Managers list all the activities which you can execute within a file or folder at the top of the web page. We believe this is not user–friendly enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you can access all file managing choices when you right–click a file or directory. This method is also valid for a number of files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you decide on with only a click of the mouse.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Distinct from nearly all file management user interfaces as well as FTP clients, the Robot Web Hosting Control Panel provides a way to archive/unarchive files way quicker. It is really uncomplicated. To get a directory shrunk into a small size, just pick it and then click the Compress button. To unwrap the items in an archived folder in your hosting account, pick it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager works with various file extensions, for example .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Revise files straight from your Control Panel
Through the File Manager you can manage your files directly on the net by using any of the internal instruments. The text editor reveals the files in a plain text file format, the code editor provides syntax highlighting for your .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor helps to see all the changes as they appear live. Any changes you make and keep are going to be reflected instantaneously on the world wide web, which enables you to preview them within your Internet browser and return to make further edits, if not satisfied.
You don’t have to download your files, to modify them on your machine and to re–upload them back to your account. Each of the editors are found via the buttons at the top of the file table or from the right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files organized in an easy–to–use way
When you are handling a large number of sites simultaneously, it’s crucial for you to have everything structured. With other File Managers, revising a couple of sites within the same web hosting account can be quite difficult. With the File Manager, you’ll find that it’s in fact quite easy. Every single site features its own folder, which you can at once recognize, including all of the files associated with the specified site are found there.
And to make everything so much easier, you will find a drop–down menu where it’s easy to pick on which host you intend to work inside the File Manager. Our intelligent system will lead you there within seconds.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager meant for the general public
Most online File Managers are slow and challenging to use. They provide limited functions and certainly are not really straightforward. We seek to improve that with the Robot Web Hosting File Manager. It was meant to be time and effort saving and to look like something you are already well aware of – the File Manager on your computer.
All its features, the drag’n’drop file upload solutions, the right–click context menus, the integrated file editors, etcetera are available for one purpose – to make controlling your web site(s) more simple.
Work with multiple files
Adjust various files all at once
With the Robot Web Hosting File Manager, it’s possible to pick out a variety of files or folders just like you do on your desktop computer or notebook. Just hold down the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and then click the desired files/folders. In case you’d like, to select a good amount of files/folders at once, simply click a single file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
When you have picked all the files that you want to, you’ll be able to drag them to a distinct directory, or make use of the right–click context menu to check out a listing of the accessible activities.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to secure your information
To password–protect a folder within your website, you will need to configure an .htaccess file by hand. To no surprise, this could be time–demanding and sophisticated if you aren’t well–trained in website hosting. Using our File Manager, you may create a password–protected directory and conceal all of its contents from the standard users with just a couple of clicks.
All you need to complete is right–click a folder, select Password Protection and afterwards click on the Add option. And then simply identify a username and also a password. No more setup is needed and there’s no reason to address an .htaccess file. Our system will take care of everything on your behalf.
