Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client substitutes, web file managers have always been sluggish and poor in capabilities. Nevertheless, using the File Manager built in the Datalox Site Control Panel, you won’t only have a fast, responsive and time and effort saving file supervision client, but also an app that will make a 3rd party FTP software unnecessary. Take a look at a few of the functions that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add files with ease
Transferring files between your computer and any of your web pages is now quick and simple, because of the drag–and–drop option provided by the File Manager. You can easily drag files from your personal computer and drop them in your Site Control Panel through a secure SSL connection. That’s it. It will take a few seconds to publish a data file and a little bit longer for larger data files and directories.
You don’t need to deploy any third party application or browser plug–ins. The drag–and–drop capability included in the File Manager operates equally efficiently on all leading operating systems.
Right–click context menus
Virtually all file managing options in front of you
We have aimed to make File Manager as intuitive as it can be, so it’s possible to produce modifications for your files. Apart from the regular control bar near the top of the page, we have additionally put in right–click context menus with all the current basic file administration possibilities. Click on a file or folder and pick the action that you want through the collection that will show up.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you choose with just a mouse–click. When you click on a directory, you can also generate a brand new folder or file within it.
The right–click choice is also available at the time you pick many different files or folders simultaneously.
Deal with big files easily
Due to the integrated archive/unarchive option, the File Manager helps you to make use of big files and not have to use FTP. You can pack a folder to a compact size by simply clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the contents of an archived directory by using the Extract button. When compressing a directory or a selection of files, you can also choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and then the name of the archive file.
Online file editors
Modify files straight from your Site Control Panel
Through the File Manager it is possible to revise your files directly online making use of the included software tools. The text editor displays the files with a plain text format, the code editor features syntax accentuating for your personal .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor allows you to preview your modifications when they appear online. All the changes that you create and keep are going to be shown instantly on the web, so it’s possible to preview them with your browser and get back to create more edits, if unhappy.
You do not have to download any files, to change them on your desktop computer and to re–upload them back to your account. All of the editors are available via the buttons at the top of the file table or from your right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files sorted out in a convenient manner
When you are working with a bunch of websites simultaneously, it is essential that you have every little thing sorted. With other File Managers, modifying a lot of sites within the same hosting account can be very challenging. Using our File Manager, you’ll find that it is actually pretty easy. Every single web site has its own directory, which you can straight away identify, and all of the files associated with the specific site are situated there.
And also to make things even easier, you will find a drop–down menu from which it’s easy to choose on which host you want to work inside the File Manager. Our smart system will lead you there in no time.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager intended for people
Most online File Managers are sluggish and quite difficult to work with. They feature reduced possibilities and are not really easy–to–work–with. We strive to change that by means of the Datalox File Manager. It was created to be intuitive and to resemble an item you you are already familiar with – the File Manager on your computer.
All of its features, the drag’n’drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the built in file editors, etcetera exist for 1 reason – to make handling your site(s) less of a challenge.
Work with multiple files
Adjust an array of files all at once
You can easily manage many files all at once employing the multi–selection capability of the Datalox File Manager. Everything you need to do is actually hold down the Control key and then click on the files or folders you want to pick. If you need to pick a list of files/folders in a row immediately, click the first file/folder, hold down the Shift key after which pick the last file or folder in the collection.
For those who have chosen the desired files/folders, you can drag them to a different spot, or apply a variety of actions to them when using the right–click contextual menu or maybe the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to protect your data
If you wish to password–secure a folder on your site, you will need to create an .htaccess file by yourself. To no surprise, this generally is time–demanding and complicated if you aren’t well–trained in computing. Using the File Manager, you can make a password–protected directory and hide its contents from the general public with several mouse–clicks.
Everything you need to complete is right–click a folder, opt for Password Protection and after that click on the Add selection. And then just identify a user name together with a password. No extra configuration is necessary and there is no need to handle an .htaccess file. Our system will take care of every little thing for you.
