Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client substitutes, web–based file management tools have always been slow and poor in features. Yet, using the File Manager integrated in the Ripcom International Hosting Control Panel, you won’t just employ a quick, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file supervision interface, but also a software tool that will make an external FTP program unnecessary. Check out several of the features that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The simplest way to publish files
Posting data files with an FTP client is an outdated and really insecure way for relocating files from your personal computer to a web server. This is why, we have included drag & drop file publish support in the File Manager. Just drag the data files that you want to add from your PC into your browser and they’ll start to upload in your web hosting profile over a secure SSL communication.
You do not have to mount any extra software pack, web browser add–ons or applications. The drag & drop functionality performs just as well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Control all of your with only a click
The majority of File Managers list all of the activities that one can conduct within a file or directory on the top of the web page. We believe that this is just not user–friendly enough. Using the File Manager, you have access to all file management choices any time you right–click a file or directory. This approach is likewise applicable for numerous files/folders.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or directory you decide with only a click of the mouse.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
As opposed to a large number of file management user interfaces and FTP clients, the Ripcom International Hosting Control Panel features a way to archive/unarchive files much quicker. It is convenient. To have a directory shrunk into a small size, all you need to do is pick it and click on the Compress button. To open the items in an archived directory within your account, choose it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager uses various file extensions, including .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Integrated file editors
No third–party programs are required
We’ve incorporated a set of file editors within the Hosting Control Panel to assist you to make quick and simple improvements for your files and never having to use third–party apps. Within the File Manager you will find a WYSIWYG editor that will help keep an eye on all the changes you create instantly, a code editor that features syntax accentuating for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and a plain text editor for more expert customers. Any changes you create and keep can be shown immediately online.
You can access the file editors making use of the buttons near the top of the file table and / or by right–clicking a certain file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All of your files sorted with an uncomplicated manner
All of the files within your website hosting account are sorted into directories. Every web host does have its main folder, which follows the file structure which you have pre–set. This way, it is really very easy to control all of your current hosts from one location without probability of getting lost or puzzled.
By default, you will notice each of the hosts listed in a table and if you click once over a specific host, you’ll see each of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking two times, you will go to a page that is devoted to that host only. Another way to load the folder related to a certain host and then to work with it solely, is using the drop–down menu towards the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager developed for people
Most online File Managers are slow–moving and difficult to apply. They have limited functions and generally aren’t really convenient–to–use. We aim to transform that by means of the Ripcom International File Manager. It’s meant to be practical and to resemble something you you are already familiar with – the File Manager on your computer.
All its capabilities, the drag–and–drop file upload options, the right–click context menus, the inbuilt file editors, etc. are there for just one purpose – to make taking care of your web site(s) a lot easier.
Work with multiple files
Adjust many files at the same time
It is simple to work with a large number of files concurrently while using the multi–selection ability of the Ripcom International File Manager. All you need to do is actually press the Control key and then click on the files or folders that you like to select. If you need to select a collection of files/folders in a row immediately, click the first file/folder, click the Shift key and then pick the very last file or folder inside the set.
When you have picked the required files/folders, you can either drag them to an alternative place, or employ diverse activities to them making use of right–click contextual menu or the buttons at the top of the file table.
1–click password protection options
The ultimate way to take care of your information
Password protection is the best solution to confine the ways to access a specialized component of your website which you don’t plan to be observable to everyone. For example, this could be a secure members’ area or an area with copyrighted information that you like exclusively specific customers to view.
Within the File Manager you can actually password–secure your web site or possibly a specified directory inside it with merely a mouse–click. Simply right–click a directory, choose Password Protection and fill out the username as well as security password. There is no need to address .htaccess files or to come up with any other configurations. From now on, merely the visitors who have your login name and security password will be able to gain access to your website.
