Applied as FTP software substitutes, online file management tools have always been slow and poor in features. Yet, with the File Manager built in the Midland Web Hosting Website Control Panel, you won’t just have a fast, responsive and easy–to–use file administration interface, but also an app that will make an external FTP software unneeded. Consider some of the characteristics that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Transmit files to your websites without any difficulty
The File Manager in your Website Control Panel includes a swift, drag–and–drop feature that will allow you to transfer data files between your PC and your website hosting profile without the need to work with an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) tool. You can pull files from your computer and drop them in your Website Control Panel with a click of the mouse using a risk–free SSL connection.
The drag’n’drop feature is integrated into the Website Control Panel, so that you don’t need to mount any third party application to make use of it. It will also work on all major Operating Systems, so all you should do to apply it is sign in to your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
All of the file control possibilities in front of you
We have tried to make your File Manager as user–friendly as possible, so it’s possible to come up with changes to your files. Apart from the common command bar at the top of the page, we have additionally designed right–click contextual menus with all the simple file management possibilities. Click on a file or directory and select the activity that you want through the list that will pop up.
It is easy to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide with merely a click of the mouse. When you click on a folder, you can also generate a different folder or file in it.
The right–click choices are available as well whenever you select numerous files or folders simultaneously.
Manage archives with merely a click of the mouse
The File Manager offers an integrated archive/unarchive option that may help you add substantial archives and extract them inside your account in seconds. When compressing a file or directory, it will be easy to decide on the title for the archive that is to be created as well as its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Additionally, it will be easy to compress current files or folders with a mouse–click.
The archive/unarchive solution provided by the File Manager means you can work with large files straight from your Website Control Panel. You don’t have to work with any third party software just like an FTP client so as to upload a big file in your hosting account or to download an archive in your desktop.
