Used as FTP client substitutes, web–based file management tools have always been slow and poor in features. Still, with the File Manager integrated in the Starfire Solutions Consulting Hosting Control Panel, you will not only have a fast, responsive and user–friendly file management interface, but also an instrument that will make a third party FTP software unnecessary. Have a look at several of the capabilities that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least difficult approach to upload files
Posting files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and really unsafe method for shifting data files from your desktop machine or notebook to a web hosting server. That’s why, we have included drag & drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Simply drag the files that you want to add from your computer into your browser and they’ll start to upload in your web hosting profile over a secure SSL connection.
You don’t need to deploy any extra software, browser add–ons or programs. The drag–and–drop functionality operates equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Handle all files with merely a mouse–click
A large number of File Managers specify all the actions which you can carry out within a file or folder on the top of the page. We feel this is just not properly arranged. Thanks to the File Manager, you can get all file management options whenever you right–click a file or directory. This method is also valid for numerous files/folders.
It’s possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or folder you select with just a click of the mouse.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Compared to a large number of file management user interfaces as well as FTP clients, the Starfire Solutions Consulting Hosting Control Panel features a solution to archive/unarchive files quicker. It is simple to operate. To get a directory shrunk into a small size, simply pick it and then click the Compress button. To unwrap the items in an archived folder in your website hosting account, choose it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager supports many file extensions, which include .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Modify files straight from your Hosting Control Panel
Through the File Manager it’s possible to revise your files directly online when using the inbuilt instruments. The text editor shows the files in a plain text file format, the code editor has syntax accentuating for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor really helps you to see all the modifications as they show up live. Any changes which you come up with and keep can be demonstrated automatically on the net, so you can preview them in your own browser and get back to make more modifications, in case you are not satisfied with the result.
You do not have to download your files, to revise them with your personal computer and to re–upload them into your hosting account. All the editors are accessible via the buttons near the top of the file table or from the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
All of your files sorted with a convenient manner
The File Manager shows all files and folders using a simple to comprehend alphabetical arrangement. All the files pertaining to the many hosts are sorted into separate directories which are titled after their respective domain names, which enables you to instantly acknowledge them. This is definitely useful when you are maintaining different web sites concurrently. There is no opportunity to get lost or to feel confused amidst the variety of data files and directories within your web hosting account.
To gain access to the files under a given host, simply choose it in the drop–down options menu near the top of the file table. As an alternative, you can double–click on its folder and you will be straight away sent to a table listing its files exclusively.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager created for real people
Managing your files is user–friendly and convenient employing the Starfire Solutions Consulting Hosting Control Panel. You’ll try a file administration atmosphere which is very close to your desktop PC’s file explorer. It is possible to drag and drop files and control all of them with a right click of the mouse. When using the built–in preview option, you can view pictures in the same way they will show up on the Internet, and throughout the built–in file editors you could make improvements for your files immediately.
If you need guidance maintaining your files, you can consider the big assortment of posts and how–to instructional videos, that you can get with merely a click of the mouse.
Work with multiple files
Change a lot of files all at once
It is simple to handle many files all at once making use of the multi–selection capability of the Starfire Solutions Consulting File Manager. Everything you need to do is hold down the Control key and then click on the files or directories which you want to select. If you want to choose a collection of files/folders in a row at the same time, click the first file/folder, hold down the Shift key and afterwards click on the last file or folder within the selection.
If you have chosen the wanted files/folders, you can either drag them to a specific location, or use a variety of activities to them when using the right–click contextual menu or maybe the buttons at the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest way to protect your details
There is one common technique to guard a directory using a security password – by generating an .htaccess file. If, however, you aren’t technically experienced enough, you’ll have difficulties doing the work by yourself. To help make things easy, we have integrated a simple to use password protection user interface to the File Manager accessible within the Hosting Control Panel.
To use the option, just right–click on a directory and choose Password Protection. Following that choose the login name as well as the pass word that you’ll want to implement and click on the button. That’s it. Now the picked directory is hidden by the public eye and will be accessible only to authorized account owners.
