Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, online file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in features. Still, when using the File Manager included in the Click2Connect Hosting Control Panel, you won’t only employ a fast, responsive and user–friendly file management software, but also an instrument that will make a third party FTP application unnecessary. Have a look at a few of the functions that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The easiest method to publish files
Publishing data files with an FTP tool is an outdated and really insecure way of switching data files from your notebook or computer to a web server. This is why, we have integrated drag & drop file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the data files that you need to add from your PC into your browser and they’ll start to upload in your web hosting profile over a secure SSL connection.
There is no need to deploy any extra software, browser add–ons or web apps. The drag–and–drop feature works just as well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
All of the file control options readily available
We have always given our best to make the File Manager as user–friendly as it can be, so it’s possible to produce changes to your files. Aside from the conventional command bar near the top of the page, we have now in addition designed right–click context menus with the simple file control possibilities. Click on a file or folder and choose the activity you’d like to have through the collection which will show up.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you choose with a mouse–click. In the event you click a directory, you can also generate a completely new directory or file in it.
The right–click choice is also available whenever you pick numerous files or folders at the same time.
Work with substantial files efficiently
Thanks to the integrated archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager really helps to handle big files with no need to use FTP. You can easily shrink a folder to a compact size by simply clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the contents of an archived folder by using the Extract button. When compressing a folder as well as a number of files, you will be able to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) as well as the name of the archive file.
Integrated file editors
Absolutely no third party software packs are needed
We’ve integrated a pair of file editors inside the Hosting Control Panel to guide you to produce quick and simple changes to your files without the need to implement third party applications. Within the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that will help you check all the recent changes that you create instantly, a code editor that features syntax highlighting for your .JS or .PHP files, together with a plain text editor for more expert users. All the changes which you come up with and keep will be shown promptly online.
You have access to the file editors using the buttons near the top of the file table or by right–clicking a selected file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All of your files arranged with a simple to use manner
The File Manager shows all files and directories in a clear to see alphabetical arrangement. Each of the files pertaining to the different hosts are organized into separate folders that are referred to as after their particular domains, allowing you to conveniently recognize them. This is actually useful when you are maintaining a variety of sites simultaneously. There isn’t any possibility to stray or to feel baffled among the multitude of data files and folders in your website hosting account.
To access the files with a given host, just pick it in the drop–down options menu at the top of the file table. Alternatively, you can easily double–click on its folder and you will be right away taken up to a table listing its files exclusively.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager meant for the people
The vast majority of web File Managers are sluggish and hard to use. They supply reduced possibilities and typically are not really simple to use. We seek to improve that through the Click2Connect File Manager. It is designed to be intuitive and to appear like an item you are already well aware of – the File Manager on your personal computer system.
All its capabilities, the drag–and–drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the built–in file editors, etc. are there for a single purpose – to help make maintaining your website(s) simpler.
Work with multiple files
Transform a lot of files all at once
Using the Click2Connect File Manager, you’re able to select numerous files or folders like you do on your desktop computer or notebook. Just hold down the Control (Command for Apple’s Mac OS) key and click on the desired files/folders. In case you would like, to pick a considerable amount of files/folders at the same time, click on one file/folder, press the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
When you have chosen the whole set of files that you need, it’s possible to drag them to a specified directory, or use the right–click contextual menu to see a summary of the available features.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest way to guard your details
If you want to password–protect a folder in your site, you will have to create an .htaccess file by hand. However, this is time–consuming and sophisticated if you aren’t well–trained in Linux web hosting.

Everything you should complete is right–click a directory, pick Password Protection after which choose the Add selection. After that simply specify a login name and also a password. No more setup is required and there is no need to deal with an .htaccess file. Our platform will manage every little thing on your behalf.
