When using the Host Source Website Control Panel, you will gain access to our feature–rich File Manager. It’ll assist you to promptly handle all of your sites without having to make use of an FTP tool. You could add files through a secure connection by pulling them into the browser. Also, you can quickly archive and unarchive data files and directories, set up password–protected locations, adjust file permissions and so much more. Take a look at the features found in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least difficult method to publish files
Importing data files with an FTP client is an obsolete and quite an insecure way of transferring files from your laptop or computer to a web server. That’s why, we have included drag–and–drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Simply pull the files that you need to publish from your desktop computer into your Internet browser and they’ll start to publish in your hosting profile over a protected SSL communication.
You do not have to set up any extra software package, web browser plug–ins or apps. The drag–and–drop capability operates just as well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
All of the file administration options in front of you
We have tried to make your File Manager as user–friendly as possible, so you are able to create changes to your files. Aside from the standard command bar near the top of the page, we have also included right–click contextual menus with all the current basic file managing options. Click on a file or directory and select the activity that you want through the list which will turn up.
You can easily rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide on with just a mouse–click. Should you click on a directory, it’s also possible to establish a new folder or file in it.
The right–click option is also available when you choose different files or folders simultaneously.
Work with large files easily
Because of the inbuilt archive/unarchive option, the File Manager will let you use huge files without the need to use FTP. You’ll be able to reduce the size of a folder to a small size by clicking on the Compress button or access the items in an archived folder using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a bunch of files, you can also choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) along with the title of the archive file.
