Applied as FTP client alternatives, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Yet, using the File Manager featured in the Visionary Direct Website Control Panel, you won’t just have a fast, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file supervision client, but also an application that will make a third–party FTP application unnecessary. Have a look at some of the features that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Move data files to your web pages without any difficulty
The File Manager in your Website Control Panel includes a quick, drag–and–drop functionality that will allow you to transfer files between your PC and your hosting account without needing to employ an FTP client. You can drag data files from your personal computer and drop them in your Website Control Panel with a click of the mouse using a safe SSL connection.
The drag & drop feature is built into the Website Control Panel, which means you don’t need to install any third party application to work with it. It will also work on all leading Os’s, so all you should do to make use of it is sign in to your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
All file control choices at hand
We’ve tried to make File Manager as user–friendly as it can be, so you are able to make changes for your files. In addition to the regular control bar towards the top of the page, we have now in addition designed right–click context menus with the simple file management options. Simply click on a file or folder and choose the actions you want through the selection that will pop up.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you decide on using a mouse–click. When you click on a folder, it is possible to set up a completely new directory or file inside it.
The right–click choice is conveniently obtainable whenever you pick numerous files or folders at once.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Compared to a large number of file management user interfaces and FTP clients, the Visionary Direct Website Control Panel provides a way to archive/unarchive files much more quickly. It is really convenient–to–use. To get a directory reduced to a lightweight size, simply select it and click on the Compress button. To open the contents of an archived directory in your account, choose it and then click the Extract button. The File Manager uses a wide range of file extensions, such as .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Integrated file editors
No third party programs are needed
We have bundled a group of file editors in the Website Control Panel so you can generate quick and easy changes in your files without having to use any third–party software applications. Within the File Manager you can find a WYSIWYG editor that will help you monitor all the current changes which you make in real time, a code editor that features syntax displaying for one’s .JS or .PHP files, in addition to a plain text editor for more experienced users. Any changes you make and save are going to be demonstrated instantaneously online.
You have access to the file editors using the buttons near the top of the file table and also by right–clicking a specific file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured with a user–friendly way
All of the files inside your hosting account are neatly organized into directories. Each and every web host features its own main folder, that employs the file structure you have created. Using this method, it is really simple to manage all of your current hosts in one place with no chance of becoming lost or confused.
By standard, you’ll see each of the hosts placed in a table and if you click once on a given host, you’ll see each of the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking two times, you are going to go to a webpage which is focused entirely on that host exclusively. An alternative way to open the folder associated with a particular host and then to work with it solely, is by using the drop–down menu near the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
Control your data with a click of the mouse
The Visionary Direct File Manager is developed in such a way to make you feel similarly to handling the file explorer on your desktop. It features a solution to drag your files and then to drop them with a preferred area and shows all of the accessible modification opportunities after clicking the right computer mouse button. Additionally, the tool carries a built in file preview solution and other file editors making it possible for you to revise your files live from your Website Control Panel.
Also, we have listed a collection of file management posts and how–to training videos to help you rather quickly find out how to make use of the tool.
Work with multiple files
Change a variety of files all at once
You can easily work with a plethora of files all at once when using the multi–selection ability of the Visionary Direct File Manager. All that you should do is actually hold down the Control key and then click on the files or folders you want to choose. In order to pick a collection of files/folders in a row at once, click the first file/folder, press the Shift key after which click on the very last file or folder inside the collection.
When you have chosen the desired files/folders, you can either drag them to a specific location, or implement various activities to them using the right–click context menu as well as the buttons at the top of the file table.
1–click password protection options
The easiest method to shield your information
Password protection is the greatest way for you to reduce the ability to access a certain component of your web site that you do not need to be seen to every one. For example, this can be a safe and secure members’ area or a location with copyrighted information that you want only specific people to reach.
Through the File Manager you can easily password–secure your site or maybe a specified folder within it with a mouse–click. Simply right–click a directory, pick Password Protection and fill in the login name as well as security password. There’s no need to take care of .htaccess files as well as to generate any extra configurations. From now on, just the visitors who have your login name and security password will gain access to your web site.
