Applied as FTP client substitutes, online file management tools have always been slow and poorly featured. Still, when using the File Manager featured in the ONLINE.UK Website Control Panel, you won’t only have a blazingly fast, responsive and easy–to–use file administration interface, but also an application that will make an external FTP software unneeded. Have a look at some of the characteristics that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most straightforward way to add files
Submitting files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and really insecure way of transferring data files from your personal computer to a web server. For this reason, we have integrated drag–and–drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Just drag the data files that you want to upload from your PC into your web browser and they will start to publish in your web hosting profile through a safe SSL communication.
You do not have to set up any extra software, browser extensions or apps. The drag–and–drop functionality operates equally well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
Find all of the readily available file managing options with a click of the mouse
Due to the right–click menus we’ve put into the File Manager, you will be able to alter all of your files incredibly easy. Simply click on a file or folder and with the pop–up panel, pick the actions that you’d like. You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any selected file. If you click a folder, you will also view the option to establish a completely new sub–folder or file inside it.
If you choose different files or directories, it’s possible to apply the exact same measures for all of them simultaneously.
Control archives with a click
The File Manager is equipped with an in–built archive/unarchive option to assist you add enormous archives and then extract them in your cloud hosting account blazingly fast. Once compressing a file or folder, you’ll be able to decide on the name of the archive which is to be created plus its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Furthermore, it will be straightforward to archive already present files or folders with merely a click of the mouse.
The archive/unarchive option available at the File Manager will allow you to make use of massive files directly from your Website Control Panel. No need to use any third party software like an FTP client as a way to upload a large file to your website hosting account or download any archive on your desktop.
