Applied as FTP client substitutes, online file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Nonetheless, when using the File Manager built in the iFXzone Web Control Panel, you won’t just have a speedy, responsive and easy–to–work–with file managing client, but also an application that will make a third–party FTP application unnecessary. Consider several of the characteristics that we have included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The easiest approach to publish data files
Adding files with an FTP client is an obsolete and really unsafe way of shifting files from your desktop computer or notebook to a hosting server. Because of this, we have included drag–and–drop file upload support in the File Manager. Just pull the files that you want to add from your computer into your Internet browser and they’ll begin to publish in your web hosting account over a protected SSL communication.
There is no need to install any additional software pack, browser add–ons or programs. The drag & drop functionality performs just as well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus
Virtually all file control choices in front of you
We’ve tried to make File Manager as user–friendly as it could possibly be, so it is possible to make alterations to your files. In addition to the traditional command bar at the top of the webpage, we have now additionally put in right–click context menus with the basic file managing options. Simply click on a file or directory and pick the actions which you want from the list that will turn up.
It is possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you select using a click of the mouse. When you click a folder, it is possible to generate a new directory or file within it.
The right–click choice is conveniently obtainable if you select numerous files or folders simultaneously.
Make use of substantial files conveniently
Thanks to the built–in archive/unarchive option, the File Manager will let you manage large files and not have to use FTP. You’re able to reduce the size of a directory to a compact size by clicking on the Compress button or access the belongings in an archived directory using the Extract button. When compressing a folder as well as a bunch of files, you’ll be able to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and the title of the archive file.
Online file editors
Change files from your Web Control Panel
Through the File Manager it’s possible to edit your files directly on the net employing many of the built in instruments. The text editor shows the files in a plain text format, the code editor provides syntax highlighting for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor allows you to view your edits when they appear online. Also, all changes which you make and save can be demonstrated instantly on the web, meaning you can preview them within your browser and get back to make more edits, if unhappy.
It is not necessary to download your files, to revise them through your machine and then to re–upload them back into your web hosting account. All of the editors are available using the buttons at the top of the file table or from the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files arranged in an intuitive manner
All of the files within your website hosting account are separated into folders. Every single web host does have its main folder, that employs the file hierarchy you have defined. In this way, it is easy to deal with all of your current hosts in one location with no probability of getting lost or puzzled.
By default, you will see each of the hosts indexed in a table and if you mouse–click once on a specific host, you will observe all the sub–folders and files related to it. By clicking two times, you will go to a web page which is dedicated to that host alone. A different way to open the folder pertaining to a certain host and then to work with it exclusively, is to use the drop–down menu near the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager devised for the general public
The vast majority of online File Managers are slow and very difficult to work with. They feature constrained functions and certainly are not really simple to use. We aim to improve that with the iFXzone File Manager. It is built to be practical and to appear to be something you already know – the File Manager on your personal computer system.
All its features, the drag’n’drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the built–in file editors, etcetera exist for a single reason – to create handling your web site(s) more simple.
Work with multiple files

Simply keep pressed the Control (Command for Mac OS) key and then click the required files/folders. In case you’d like, to select a lot of files/folders at once, click on a single file/folder, press the Shift key and then click any file or folder.
Having once selected the whole set of files that you’ll require, you’ll be able to drag them to a distinct directory, or take advantage of the right–click contextual menu to see a summary of the available actions.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to secure your data
There is one common way for you to protect a directory using a pass word – by generating an .htaccess file. If, however, you are not technologically qualified sufficiently, you’ll have difficulty performing it all by yourself. To help make things straightforward, we’ve added an intuitive password protection interface to the File Manager readily available within the Web Control Panel.
