Used as FTP software alternatives, online file managers have always been slow and poor in features. However, using the File Manager included in the fivebubbles Control Panel, you won’t just employ a blazingly fast, intuitive and time and effort saving file supervision software, but also a software instrument that will make a third–party FTP program unnecessary. Consider some of the characteristics that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Publish files with ease
Moving files between your PC and any of your websites is right now easy and quick, thanks to the drag’n’drop functionality delivered by the File Manager. You could pull data files from your notebook or computer and drop them in your Control Panel through a secure SSL connection. That’s it. It takes seconds to add a data file and slightly longer for the bigger data files and folders.
You don’t need to set up any third party application or Internet browser addons. The drag & drop function contained in the File Manager works equally well on all popular operating systems.
Right–click context menus
All file management choices readily available
We’ve aimed to make File Manager as easy–to–use as it could possibly be, so it is easy to generate alterations for your files. Aside from the typical command bar towards the top of the page, we have furthermore added right–click context menus with all the common file control possibilities. Click on a file or directory and pick the activity you want through the list that will appear.
You can easily rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide with merely a click of the mouse. When you click a directory, also you can make a different directory or file inside it.
The right–click option is available as well any time you select different files or folders at once.
Deal with massive files incredibly easily
Because of the inbuilt archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager enables you to make use of substantial files with no need to use FTP. It is simple to pack a directory to a compact size by simply clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the items in an archived folder by using the Extract button. When compressing a directory as well as a selection of files, you are able to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and also the name of the archive file.
Online file editors
Edit files straight from your Control Panel
From the File Manager it is possible to revise your files directly on the Internet by using any of the integrated instruments. The text editor shows the files in a plain text file format, the code editor features syntax accentuating for your personal .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor allows you to see your edits as they appear live. All the changes you make and save can be displayed straight away on the Internet, so you can preview them in your Internet browser and go back to generate more changes, if unhappy.
It is not necessary to download any files whatsoever, to edit them in your PC and then to re–upload them back into your hosting account. All the editors are accessible using the buttons near the top of the file table or at the right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
Your files structured with a convenient manner
All of the files in your hosting account are neatly sorted into folders. Each host features its own main folder, which uses the file hierarchy which you have created. This way, it is an easy task to deal with all of your current hosts from a single location without risk of becoming lost or perplexed.
By default, you will notice all the hosts conveniently contained in a table and if you mouse–click once over a specific host, you will see each of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking twice, you are going to visit a web page which is focused on that host only. An additional way to load the folder associated with a specific host and to work with it exclusively, is by using the drop–down menu near the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
