Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web file management tools have always been slow and poorly featured. However, with the File Manager built in the Ion Mod Online Control Panel, you won’t only employ a rapid, responsive and easy–to–use file management interface, but also a software tool that will make an external FTP software unneeded. Check out several of the characteristics that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Move data files to your web sites easily
The File Manager in your Online Control Panel includes a rapid, drag–and–drop feature that can help you move files between your PC and your web hosting profile without needing to employ an FTP client. You can pull data files from your computer and drop them in your Online Control Panel with a mouse–click using a risk–free SSL connection.
The drag’n’drop function is built into the Online Control Panel, so that you don’t need to install any third–party computer software to apply it. It will also work on all popular Operating Systems, so all you should do to employ it is sign in to your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
Manage all files with a mouse–click
The vast majority of File Managers include all of the actions that one can conduct over a file or folder on the top of the page. We believe that this is not user–friendly enough. Using the File Manager, you can access all of the file administration options when you right–click a file or directory. This method is likewise applicable for multiple files/folders.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide on with simply a mouse–click.
Maintain archives with simply a mouse–click
The File Manager offers an inbuilt archive/unarchive option that may help you upload substantial archives and then extract them in your account in seconds. When compressing a file or folder, it’s possible to select the name of the archive which is to be created as well as its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Additionally, it will be straightforward to compress already present files or folders with merely a mouse–click.
The archive/unarchive option offered by the File Manager means you can work with enormous files right from your Online Control Panel. You don’t have to work with any third–party software just like an FTP client in an effort to upload a substantial file in your cloud hosting account or download an archive on your desktop.
Online file editors
Manage files from your Online Control Panel
With the File Manager you can easily alter your files instantly online employing many of the built in instruments. The text editor shows the files with a plain text file format, the code editor features syntax displaying for your .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor allows you to preview your edits as they appear online. All the changes which you come up with and save will be reflected instantly on the Internet, which means you can examine them in your browser and get back to create further edits, if not satisfied.
There’s no need to download any files whatsoever, to change them through your machine and to re–upload them back into your hosting account. Each of the editors are found using the buttons near the top of the file table or at the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
All of your files sorted with an easy–to–use approach
The File Manager displays all files and folders in a clear and understandable alphabetical order. All of the files related to the different hosts are structured inside independent directories that are named following their particular domains, which means you can easily acknowledge them. This is actually useful in controlling different websites concurrently. There’s no chance to stray or to feel baffled amidst the many data files and folders in your cloud hosting account.
To reach the files with a host, simply choose it in the drop–down menu near the top of the file table. Additionally, you can easily double–click on its directory and you are at once brought to a table listing its files only.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager created for the people
Most web File Managers are slow and complex to employ. They feature limited functions and typically are not really simple to use. We aim to transform that by means of the Ion Mod File Manager. It was intended to be time and effort saving and also to resemble something you already know – the File Manager on your personal computer system.
All of its functions, the drag–and–drop file upload options, the right–click contextual menus, the inbuilt file editors, etcetera are there for just one purpose – to make handling your site(s) more convenient.
Work with multiple files
Adjust a variety of files at the same time
You can easily manage a huge amount of files all at once when using the multi–selection ability of the Ion Mod File Manager. Everything you should do is actually hold down the Control key and then click on the files or directories that you’d like to choose. If you need to choose a selection of files/folders in a row simultaneously, pick the first file/folder, hold down the Shift key after which choose the last file or folder within the collection.
For people with selected the desired files/folders, you can either drag them to a specific location, or use a variety of actions to them when using the right–click context menu as well as the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to take care of your details
There is a single standard path to secure a directory using a pass word – by generating an .htaccess file. If, however, you aren’t technologically experienced enough, you’ll have difficulty executing it on your own. To generate things straightforward, we have included a convenient password protection user interface to the File Manager available within the Online Control Panel.
To employ the option, just right–click on a directory and choose Password Protection. Following that choose the username as well as the security password that you’ll want to make use of and then press the button. That’s it. The chosen directory will be hidden by the regular website visitors and will also be accessible just to approved account holders.
