Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client substitutes, web–based file managers have always been slow and poor in features. Nonetheless, when using the File Manager built in the XFO Wholesale Site Control Panel, you won’t only have a speedy, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file management software, but also a tool that will make an external FTP program unnecessary. Consider several of the capabilities that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most effective approach to publish data files
Submitting data files with an FTP tool is an obsolete and quite an unsafe method for transporting files from your computer to a hosting server. That’s why, we have included drag–and–drop file upload support in the File Manager. Simply drag the data files that you want to publish from your PC into your browser and they’ll begin to upload in your hosting profile over a safe SSL connection.
You do not have to mount any extra software, web browser plug–ins or applications. The drag–and–drop functionality operates just as well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus
Handle all files with a click
Most File Managers specify all of the activities which you can carry out with a file or directory on the top of the page. We feel that this is not user–friendly enough. With the File Manager, you can get all of the file administration options when you right–click a file or directory. This approach is also valid for many different files/folders.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or directory you choose with a mouse–click.
Make use of big files effortlessly
Due to the built–in archive/unarchive option, the File Manager helps you to work with enormous files never having to use FTP. It is simple to pack a folder to a compact size by clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the items in an archived folder using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a group of files, you will be able to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) in addition to the name of one’s archive file.
Integrated file editors
Zero third party software is needed
We have integrated a number of file editors within the Site Control Panel so that you can create quick and simple improvements to your files and never having to apply third–party software packages. Within the File Manager you will find a WYSIWYG editor that can help you monitor all the current changes which you create right away, a code editor that features syntax accentuating for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and a plain text editor for more experienced users. All the changes which you create and keep are going to be shown instantaneously online.
You can access the file editors using the buttons at the top of the file table and also by right–clicking a particular file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All your files organized with an intuitive way
If you are in charge of a range of websites at the same time, it’s important to have every little thing structured. With many other File Managers, revising a variety of sites within the same hosting account is extremely tricky. With the File Manager, you will find that it’s actually quite easy. Every single site features its own folder, which you can instantly recognize, including all of the files related to the given web site are located there.
And to make things even easier, we have a drop–down menu from where you can quickly pick on which web host you would like to work in the File Manager. Our intelligent system will lead you there within seconds.
A user–friendly interface
Manage your data with just a click of the mouse
The XFO Wholesale File Manager has been designed in such a manner to make you feel like using the file explorer on your laptop. It has a possibility to drag your files and to drop them with a preferred area and displays all the available modification opportunities upon clicking the right computer mouse button. At the same time, the tool boasts an in–built file preview option and other file editors that can assist you modify your files in real time from your Site Control Panel.
In addition, we’ve incorporated a collection of file management articles and how–to educational videos to assist you rather quickly find out how to work with the tool.
Work with multiple files
Adjust many files simultaneously
You’ll be able to handle a lot of files all at once while using the multi–selection capability of the XFO Wholesale File Manager. All you should do is actually press the Control key and then click on the files or directories you want to choose. In order to choose a variety of files/folders in a row at once, click on the first file/folder, press the Shift key after which pick the very last file or folder within the collection.
If you have chosen the desired files/folders, you may either drag them to a specific place, or implement different 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 easiest method to protect your information
There is one standard way to secure a directory using a security password – by making an .htaccess file. If, however, you aren’t technically qualified enough, you’ll have issues doing the work on your own. For making things easy, we’ve designed an easy–to–navigate password protection user interface to the File Manager accessible in the Site Control Panel.
To employ the option, just right–click on a directory and select Password Protection. Following that add the username and the pass word which you want to make use of and then press the button. That’s it. Now the picked directory will be undetectable from the public eye and will be available just to approved users.
