Used as FTP software substitutes, online file management tools have always been slow and poorly featured. However, with the File Manager featured in the Heart Beat Hosting Web Hosting Control Panel, you won’t just have a rapid, intuitive and user–friendly file managing client, but also a software tool that will make a 3rd party FTP software unneeded. Take a look at several of the capabilities that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least difficult approach to upload data files
Importing files with an FTP tool is an outdated and quite an unsafe method for transferring files from your computer to a web server. By reason of this, we have integrated drag–and–drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Just drag the data files that you need to upload from your PC into your Internet browser and they’ll begin to upload in your web hosting account through a protected SSL communication.
You don’t need to set up any extra computer software, browser add–ons or programs. The drag & drop capability performs equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Control all files with just a click of the mouse
The vast majority of File Managers list all of the activities that one can carry out on a file or directory on the top of the webpage. We believe this isn’t user–friendly enough. Using the File Manager, you can get all of the file management choices any time you right–click a file or folder. This method is also valid for a number of files/folders.
You can actually rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or folder you select with only a mouse–click.
Deal with enormous files conveniently
Thanks to the inbuilt archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager allows you to deal with huge files never having to use FTP. It’s possible to pack a directory into a small size by simply clicking on the Compress button or access the contents of an archived folder using the Extract button. When compressing a directory or a group of files, it is also possible to decide on the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) as well as the name of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
Modify files from your Web Hosting Control Panel
Through the File Manager it is easy to manage your files instantly online employing the in–built software tools. The text editor shows the files in a plain text format, the code editor features syntax emphasizing for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor lets you to see all the edits when they show up online. Any changes that you make and keep are going to be reflected instantly online, meaning you can preview them within your Internet browser and return to generate more modifications, in case you are not happy with the result.
It is not necessary to download any files, to change them in your machine and then to re–upload them into your account. All of the editors are found using the buttons at the top of the file table or through the right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured in a convenient–to–use way
The File Manager shows all of the files and directories using a simple to comprehend alphabetical order. All of the files related to the various hosts are arranged within independent folders that are named after their individual domain names, which means you can efficiently recognize them. This is actually useful in managing a lot of websites simultaneously. There isn’t any chance to stray or to feel really bewildered amidst the many data files and directories in your account.
To get into the files with a specific host, simply pick it in the drop–down options menu near the top of the file table. As an alternative, you can easily double–click on its directory and you’ll be quickly transported to a table listing its files only.
A user–friendly interface
Control your files with only a click of the mouse
The Heart Beat Hosting File Manager is developed in such a manner as to make you feel just like using the services of the file explorer on your personal computer. It provides you with a possibility to drag your files and then to drop them in a preferred area and shows all the available edit opportunities on clicking the right mouse button. At the same time, the tool features an inbuilt file preview solution as well as other file editors to help you out manage your files instantly from your Web Hosting Control Panel.
In addition, we’ve bundled a number of file management posts and how–to training videos to guide you rather quickly learn how to work with the tool.
Work with multiple files
Transform different files concurrently
When using the Heart Beat Hosting File Manager, you can select multiple files or folders precisely like you do on your own computer. Just hold down the Control (Command for Mac OS) key and then click the required files/folders. In case you’d like, to select lots of files/folders at once, click a single file/folder, press the Shift key and then click any other file or folder.
When you have picked each of the files that you want to, it’s possible to drag them into a different folder, or use the right–click context menu to check out a list of the available actions.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to secure your data
There’s one typical approach to shield a directory with a pass word – by making an .htaccess file. In case, however, you aren’t technically qualified sufficiently, you will have issues executing it all by yourself. To make things easy for you, we’ve added a convenient–to–use password protection interface to the File Manager accessible in the Web Hosting Control Panel.
To employ the option, simply right–click on a folder and select Password Protection. Then decide on the login name plus the security password that you’ll want to work with and then press the button. That’s it. The picked folder will be hidden by the general pubic and will be available to authorized account holders.
