Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web–based file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in features. Yet, when using the File Manager built in the Forte Cheap Host Web Control Panel, you won’t only employ a fast, intuitive and easy–to–use file management software, but also an application that will make a third–party FTP program unneeded. Take a look at several of the characteristics that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Publish files with ease
Transferring data files between your desktop computer and any of your web pages is now simple and fast, thanks to the drag–and–drop option provided by the File Manager. You can drag data files from your notebook or computer and drop them in your Web Control Panel through a secure SSL communication. That’s it. It usually takes a few seconds to upload a file and a little bit longer for any bigger data files and directories.
You do not have to deploy any third party application or browser plugins. The drag & drop function contained in the File Manager performs equally well on all popular OS’s.
Right–click context menus
Virtually all file managing possibilities readily available
We have tried to make the File Manager as intuitive as possible, so you’ll be able to generate modifications to your files. Besides the regular command bar at the top of the page, we have now in addition introduced right–click contextual menus with all the current basic file administration options. Click on a file or folder and select the activity you want through the list that will pop up.
You’re able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you choose with simply a click of the mouse. In the event you click on a directory, you can also create a completely new folder or file in it.
The right–click option is available as well if you pick many different files or folders at the same time.
Manage archives with simply a click of the mouse
The File Manager features an in–built archive/unarchive solution that may help you add substantial archives and extract them in to your website hosting account within seconds. The moment compressing a file or directory, you will be able to decide on the title of the archive which is to be created and its particular extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Furthermore, it will be easy to compress already present files or folders with simply a click of the mouse.
The archive/unarchive solution available from the File Manager means that you can use large files right from your Web Control Panel. No need to work with any third–party software for instance an FTP client in order to upload a large file in your hosting account or to download any archive to your desktop.
