Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software substitutes, web file managers have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Still, with the File Manager integrated in the Wilkinson.biz Web Control Panel, you will not only have a fast, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file managing software, but also a tool that will make a third party FTP program unnecessary. Have a look at some of the functions that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated approach to upload data files
Posting data files with an FTP tool is an outdated and really unsafe method for switching data files from your computer to a web hosting server. For this reason, we have integrated drag & drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the files that you need to publish from your computer into your browser and they will start to upload in your web hosting profile through a risk–free SSL communication.
You don’t need to set up any additional software package, browser add–ons or programs. The drag–and–drop functionality works equally well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
Handle your files with merely a mouse–click
Most File Managers list all the activities which you can execute with a file or folder at the top of the web page. We feel this is just not properly arranged. Thanks to the File Manager, you can access all of the file management choices when you right–click a file or directory. This method is likewise applicable for multiple files/folders.
You can actually rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or directory you decide with a click of the mouse.
Handle massive files efficiently
Thanks to the built in archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager makes it possible for you to make use of big files and not having to use FTP. You’ll be able to pack a folder to a lightweight size by simply clicking on the Compress button or get the contents of an archived directory by using the Extract button. When compressing a folder or multiple files, you’ll be able to choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) as well as the title of one’s archive file.
Integrated file editors
No third–party software packages are required
We’ve incorporated a number of file editors within the Web Control Panel so you’re able to come up with quick and easy improvements for your files without the need to implement third party apps. Within the File Manager you can find a WYSIWYG editor that can help you monitor all the current changes that you come up with right away, a code editor that has syntax accentuating for your personal .JS or .PHP files, as well as a plain text editor for more competent users. Any changes that you create and save will be shown right away online.
You have access to the file editors when using the buttons at the top of the file table as well as by right–clicking a certain file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All of your files structured in a simple to use way
When you are in charge of a lot of websites at the same time, it is crucial for you to have everything arranged. With other File Managers, updating a lot of web sites within the same account is extremely challenging. With our File Manager, you will see that it is in fact pretty easy. Every single web site does have its own folder, which you can quickly acknowledge, and all of the files related to the specified website are placed there.
And to make everything so much easier, you will find a drop–down navigation where it’s easy to choose on which web host you wish to work inside the File Manager. Our intelligent system will lead you there within seconds.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager devised for people
Most web File Managers are slow–moving and difficult to make use of. They give you limited possibilities and certainly are not really simple to use. We aim to transform that through the Wilkinson.biz File Manager. It’s made to be time and effort saving and to look like an item you already know – the File Manager on your personal computer.
All its capabilities, the drag–and–drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the built in file editors, etcetera are there for 1 reason – to create managing your web site(s) easier.
Work with multiple files
Change various files concurrently
Using the Wilkinson.biz File Manager, you can easily choose many different files or directories exactly like you do on your desktop machine or laptop. Just press the Control (Command for Mac) key and then click the desired files/folders. If you would like, to choose multiple files/folders simultaneously, click on a single file/folder, hold down the Shift key and click on any file or folder.
When you have picked all of the files that you require, it is possible to drag them into a specified folder, or take advantage of the right–click context menu to check out an index of the available activities.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to shield your details
If you need to password–protect a folder within your site, you will have to make an .htaccess file by yourself. Expectedly, this generally is time–absorbing and complex if you aren’t well–trained in Linux hosting. Thanks to the File Manager, you can make a password–secured folder and hide all its contents from the standard users with simply several mouse–clicks.
Everything you need to do is right–click a directory, pick out Password Protection and afterwards pick the Add option. After that just define a login name along with a password. No more setup is required and there is no reason to deal with an .htaccess file. Our platform will manage every little thing for you.
