Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, web file management tools have always been slow and poor in features. Nevertheless, with the File Manager featured in the Williams Hostings Web Site Control Panel, you won’t just have a blazingly fast, responsive and easy–to–work–with file supervision interface, but also a tool that will make a third party FTP software unnecessary. Take a look at a few of the options that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most effective way to publish files
Submitting data files with an FTP tool is an outdated and quite an insecure way of transmitting data files from your desktop computer or notebook to a web hosting server. That’s why, we have included drag–and–drop file upload support in the File Manager. Just drag the data files that you want to publish from your PC into your Internet browser and they’ll start to upload in your web hosting account through a risk–free SSL communication.
You do not have to mount any additional software pack, browser add–ons or web apps. The drag–and–drop function works equally well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
All file administration possibilities at your disposal
We’ve always given our best to make File Manager as intuitive as feasible, so you can easily produce modifications to your files. In addition to the normal command bar at the top of the webpage, we have now also integrated right–click context menus with the general file administration options. Click on a file or folder and pick the action you want through the list that will appear.
You are able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you choose using a click of the mouse. In the event you click a folder, also you can create a brand new folder or file within it.
The right–click choice is also available at the time you pick numerous files or folders at once.
Work with huge files conveniently
Due to the in–built archive/unarchive option, the File Manager really helps to use big files with no need to use FTP. It is easy to shrink a folder to a small size by clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the items in an archived folder by using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a directory as well as a group of files, it will be easy to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) along with the name of one’s archive file.
