Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poorly featured. However, when using the File Manager included in the Savannah Domains Hosting Control Panel, you won’t only employ a fast, intuitive and user–friendly file supervision interface, but also an application that will make a third party FTP program unnecessary. Take a look at some of the characteristics that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add data files with ease
Transferring data files between your computer and any of your webpages is right now quick and easy, thanks to the drag’n’drop option available from the File Manager. You can easily pull files from your computer and drop them in the Hosting Control Panel over a secure SSL communication. That’s it. It requires seconds to add a data file and a bit longer for larger files and directories.
You do not have to set up any third–party software or browser addons. The drag’n’drop capability built into the File Manager works just as well on all main operating systems.
Right–click context menus
Virtually all file management choices at your fingertips
We’ve tried to make the File Manager as easy–to–use as possible, so you can easily create changes to your files. Besides the conventional control bar at the top of the web page, we have in addition integrated right–click context menus with the general file managing possibilities. Simply click on a file or directory and select the action that you want within the list that will pop up.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you select with only a mouse–click. Should you click on a directory, it’s also possible to establish a brand new folder or file within it.
The right–click choices are available as well whenever you pick multiple files or folders at the same time.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Compared with a large number of file management user interfaces and FTP (File Transfer Protocol) clients, the Savannah Domains Hosting Control Panel boasts a way to archive/unarchive files much quicker. It is really easy to use. To get a directory shrunk into a lightweight size, just select it and click on the Compress button. To open the items in an archived folder inside your web hosting account, select it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager supports numerous file extensions, just like .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Modify files straight from your Hosting Control Panel
From the File Manager you’ll be able to modify your files directly online when using any of the in–built tools. The text editor reveals the files with a plain text formatting, the code editor provides syntax highlighting for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor lets you to see all the changes while they show up live. Also, all changes you generate and save are going to be displayed promptly on the Internet, so that you can preview them with your browser and go back to make more changes, if unhappy.
You do not have to download any files, to change them through your desktop and to re–upload them back in your website hosting account. All of the editors are accessible using the buttons at the top of the file table or from your right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files sorted with an intuitive approach
The File Manager lists all files and directories using an easy–to–understand alphabetical arrangement. The whole set of files related to the different hosts are structured inside independent directories that are named after their particular domain names, so it’s possible to conveniently acknowledge them. This is really useful in maintaining a range of sites concurrently. There’s no opportunity to stray or to feel baffled amidst the multitude of files and folders with your web hosting account.
To gain access to the files under a given host, simply choose it from the drop–down options menu near the top of the file table. Alternatively, you’ll be able to double–click on its directory and you will be quickly transported to a table listing its files only.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager devised for people
Most online File Managers are slow–moving and very difficult to make use of. They offer limited possibilities and typically are not really user–friendly. We aim to improve that with the Savannah Domains File Manager. It is intended to be time and effort saving and to appear to be an item you you’re already familiar with – the File Manager on your personal computer system.
All its features, the drag–and–drop file upload solutions, the right–click context menus, the inbuilt file editors, etc. exist for just one reason – to help make controlling your web site(s) less difficult.
Work with multiple files
Modify multiple files all at once
It is simple to make use of numerous files all at once using the multi–selection capability of the Savannah Domains File Manager. All you need to do is simply hold down the Control key and then click on the files or directories that you would like to pick. If you’d like to select a variety of files/folders in a row at once, click the first file/folder, hold down the Shift key and afterwards pick the last file or folder within the selection.
For those who have chosen the wanted files/folders, you can either drag them to an alternative place, or use a variety of actions to them when using the right–click context menu as well as the buttons near the top of the file table.
1–click password protection options
The easiest method to secure your information
Password protection is the greatest solution to confine the admittance to a specific component of your website you don’t want to be observable to every one. For instance, this could be a secure members’ place or even an area with copyrighted data that you want just selected people to access.
With the File Manager it is possible to password–protect your site or possibly a particular directory inside with a mouse–click. Just right–click a folder, select Password Protection and add the user name and security password. You do not have to deal with .htaccess files or make any other configurations. In the future, merely the site visitors who have your login name and security password will be able to access your website.
