Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, online file managers have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Yet, when using the File Manager integrated in the ArtMotion Web Control Panel, you will not only have a quick, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file managing software, but also an application that will make a third party FTP software unneeded. Have a look at a few of the features that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple way to publish data files
Uploading data files with an FTP client is an obsolete and quite an unsafe method for relocating files from your desktop computer or laptop to a server. For this reason, we have included drag & drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Simply pull the files that you want to upload from your desktop into your browser and they will begin to publish in your website hosting profile through a safe SSL connection.
There is no need to set up any extra computer software, web browser extensions or apps. The drag & drop feature works equally well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus
Find all of the available file control possibilities with a click
Because of the right–click menus that we have added to the File Manager, it is possible to alter all of your files easier than ever. Click on a file or folder and with the panel that will actually pop up, find the activity that you would like. It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete virtually any chosen file. When you click on a folder, additionally, you’ll see the solution to create a different sub–folder or file inside.
If you select different files or directories, you will be able to apply identical procedures to all of them concurrently.
Deal with big files effectively
Thanks to the internal archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager really helps to handle huge files and never have to use FTP. You’ll be able to pack a folder into a lightweight size by simply clicking on the Compress button or access the items in an archived directory by using the Extract button. When compressing a directory as well as a selection of files, it is possible to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and the title of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
The most rapid way for you to modify your files
Our File Manager allows you to manage your files directly on the web hosting server without having to download, transform and subsequently re–upload them. It’s possible to modify your files instantly on the net, making use of ArtMotion’s in–built editors. We provide a code editor having syntax displaying for your .PHP or .JS files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, and then a standard text editor for more competent end users.
You have access to every file editor making use of the right–click contextual menus. All of the corrections made to the files will be shown instantaneously online – it’s possible to directly preview them in your browser.
A logical folder structure
All of your files arranged in a convenient way
All the files inside your cloud hosting account are structured into directories. Each host features its own main folder, that employs the file structure you have created. This way, it is really simple to control all your hosts from a single place without risk of getting lost or perplexed.
By default, you will see all the hosts conveniently indexed in a table and if you click once on a specific host, you will observe the whole set of sub–folders and files pertaining to it. By clicking on twice, you are going to go to a page which is centered on that host alone. Another way to load the folder related to a specific host and then to work with it exclusively, is to use the drop–down menu near the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
Take care of your data with merely a click of the mouse
The ArtMotion File Manager is made in such a way to make you feel similarly to using the file explorer on your laptop. It provides you with a way to drag your files and then to drop them inside a desired location and reveals all the readily available edit options after clicking the right computer mouse button. Furthermore, the tool boasts an incorporated file preview solution as well as other file editors to guide you modify your files quickly straight from your Web Control Panel.
Furthermore, we have integrated a collection of file management posts and how–to video tutorials so that you can fairly quickly find out how to make use of the tool.
Work with multiple files
Change many files simultaneously
With the ArtMotion File Manager, it’s possible to pick multiple files or folders just like you do notebook or desktop computer. Just press the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and then click the wanted files/folders. In case you would like, to choose a lot of files/folders at the same time, click on a single file/folder, hold down the Shift key and then click any other file or folder.
Having once selected all the files that you’ll require, it is easy to drag them to a different folder, or take advantage of the right–click contextual menu to see a summary of the accessible features.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to guard your information
There’s a single common way for you to secure a folder with a pass word – by creating an .htaccess file. In case, however, you aren’t technologically qualified sufficiently, you’ll have difficulties carrying it out without any help. To help make things simple for you, we have added an easy–to–work–with password protection interface to the File Manager readily available within the Web Control Panel.
To use the option, just right–click on a folder and select Password Protection. Following that submit the user name plus the security password that you’d like to use and click on the button. That’s it. The picked directory is going to be concealed from the general pubic and will be accessible to authorized visitors.
