Used as FTP client substitutes, online file managers have always been slow and poorly featured. Still, using the File Manager built in the GWB Web Hosting Control Panel, you will not only have a blazingly fast, responsive and time and effort saving file administration client, but also a software tool that will make a 3rd party FTP application unnecessary. Consider several of the features that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The easiest approach to add data files
Adding files with an FTP tool is an out–of–date and quite an insecure way of switching files from your PC to a hosting server. By reason of this, we have included drag & drop file publish support in the File Manager. Just drag the files that you need to publish from your computer into your browser and they will begin to upload in your web hosting account through a protected SSL connection.
You don’t have to deploy any additional computer software, browser extensions or apps. The drag & drop capability works just as well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Look at the whole set of readily available file management possibilities with merely a click of the mouse
Due to the right–click menus that we have put into the File Manager, it’s possible to manage your files in a time and effort saving manner. Just click on a file or directory and from the panel which will show up, select the actions that you like. You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any chosen file. When you click a folder, you can also view the solution to establish a different sub–folder or file inside it.
Whenever you select multiple files or folders, you are able to apply identical procedures to all of them at the same time.
Take care of archives with only a mouse–click
The File Manager comes with an inbuilt archive/unarchive option that can help you submit big archives and then extract them inside your account within seconds. When compressing a file or folder, it is possible to select the name for the archive that will be created and its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Additionally, you’ll be able to archive current files or folders with simply a click of the mouse.
The archive/unarchive solution available from the File Manager permits you to handle substantial files right from your Web Hosting Control Panel. No reason to use any third–party software for example an FTP client as a way to upload a substantial file onto your cloud hosting account or download any kind of archive in your desktop.
