Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web file management tools have always been slow and poorly featured. Still, with the File Manager built in the TulipHosting Web Control Panel, you won’t just employ a speedy, responsive and easy–to–use file managing interface, but also a software instrument that will make an external FTP program unneeded. Have a look at some of the options that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The simplest approach to publish data files
Publishing data files with an FTP tool is an outdated and quite an insecure way for moving files from your desktop machine or laptop to a hosting server. That’s why, we have included drag’n’drop file upload support in the File Manager. Just drag the files that you want to add from your PC into your browser and they’ll start to upload in your hosting profile through a protected SSL communication.
You don’t have to deploy any additional software, web browser add–ons or web apps. The drag–and–drop functionality operates equally well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
Handle your files with just a click
The majority of File Managers list all the activities which you can perform with a file or folder on the top of the webpage. We believe that the latter isn’t user–friendly enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you have access to all file management choices when you right–click a file or directory. This option is likewise applicable for different files/folders.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or folder you decide with merely a click of the mouse.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
Unlike the majority of file management user interfaces as well as FTP clients, the TulipHosting Web Control Panel offers a solution to archive/unarchive files much more quickly. It is really user–friendly and uncomplicated. To get a folder reduced into a compact size, just pick it and click on the Compress button. To unwrap the items in an archived folder in your account, select it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager supports an assortment of file extensions, including .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
Change files directly from your Web Control Panel
From your File Manager it is possible to edit your files directly on the net by making use of many of the built in software tools. The text editor displays the files in a plain text formatting, the code editor has syntax emphasizing for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor really helps you to see all the modifications as they show up online. Also, all changes which you generate and save are going to be demonstrated right away on the net, so that you can preview them inside your browser and return to make extra modifications, in case you are not satisfied with the result.
There’s no need to download any files, to revise them on your desktop computer and to re–upload them back in your account. Each of the editors are accessible through the buttons at the top of the file table or through the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
All of your files organized with a convenient–to–use manner
The File Manager lists all of the files and directories using a clear to understand alphabetical arrangement. The whole set of files pertaining to the many hosts are sorted within distinct directories which are named after their respective domain names, which enables you to quite easily recognize them. This is really useful in maintaining a lot of web sites concurrently. There’s no opportunity to get lost or to feel baffled amidst the variety of data files and directories with your account.
To reach the files under a host, simply select it from the drop–down options menu near the top of the file table. Alternatively, you’ll be able to double–click on its directory and you are easily brought to a table showing its files only.
A user–friendly interface
Control your data with only a click of the mouse
The TulipHosting File Manager is designed in such a way as to make you feel similarly to employing the file explorer on your computer. It is provided with an option to drag your files and then to drop them with a desired location and shows all of the obtainable modification options after clicking the right mouse button. Also, the tool has a built–in file preview option and other file editors allowing you to modify your files in real time directly from your Web Control Panel.
Furthermore, we have integrated a couple of file management posts and how–to educational videos to guide you to quickly find out how to work with the tool.
Work with multiple files
Modify numerous files concurrently
When using the TulipHosting File Manager, you’ll be able to pick many different files or folders precisely like you do on your desktop machine or notebook. Simply press the Control (Command for Mac OS) key and click on the required files/folders. In case you’d like, to select a lot of files/folders at once, just click a single file/folder, press the Shift key and then click any file or folder.
Once you have picked all the files that you require, it’s possible to drag them into a pre–selected location, or use the right–click contextual menu to check out an index of the available features.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest way to secure your data
There is one typical technique to guard a folder using a password – by generating an .htaccess file. If, however, you are not technically qualified enough, you’ll have trouble doing the work by yourself. To help make things simple, we have designed a straightforward password protection interface to the File Manager readily available within the Web Control Panel.
To use the option, just right–click on a folder and select Password Protection. After that add the login name and the security password which you want to employ and press the button. That’s it. The particular folder will be hidden from the standard users and will be accessible only to previously approved account holders.
