When using the K2 Total Solutions Site Control Panel, you will have access to our feature–rich File Manager. It’ll help you to promptly manage your websites with no need to turn to an FTP tool. You can publish data files over a risk–free connection by simply dragging them into the web browser. Also, you can instantly archive and unarchive files and directories, set password–protected locations, adjust data file permissions and much more. Have a look at the characteristics included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least difficult approach to add data files
Uploading files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and quite an insecure method for transporting files from your desktop computer or laptop to a hosting server. This is why, we have included drag–and–drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Just pull the files that you want to upload from your desktop into your web browser and they will start to upload in your web hosting profile through a protected SSL connection.
There is no need to set up any additional software package, web browser extensions or applications. The drag & drop function operates equally well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
Handle your files with merely a mouse–click
Most File Managers include all of the activities you can carry out with a file or folder at the top of the web page. We think this is just not user–friendly enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you have access to all file control options any time you right–click a file or directory. This method is also applicable for multiple files/folders.
It’s possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or folder you decide on with simply a click of the mouse.
Take care of archives with a mouse–click
The File Manager offers an integrated archive/unarchive option that will help you submit enormous archives and extract them in to your website hosting account in seconds. When compressing a file or directory, you’ll be able to decide on the name of the archive which will be created and its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. In addition, it’s possible to archive existing folders or files with a mouse–click.
The archive/unarchive solution provided by the File Manager allows you to handle substantial files directly from your Site Control Panel. No need to employ any third party software for instance an FTP client in order to upload a big file onto your cloud hosting account or to download any kind of archive on your desktop.
Integrated file editors
No third party programs are needed
We have included a group of file editors inside the Site Control Panel to help you produce quick and easy improvements for your files and never having to make use of any third–party software packages. Within the File Manager you can find a WYSIWYG editor that can help you monitor all the recent changes you make immediately, a code editor that boasts syntax emphasizing for one’s .PHP or .JS files, in addition to a plain text editor for more competent users. All the changes you generate and save will be shown immediately on the web.
You can access the file editors making use of the buttons at the top of the file table as well as by right–clicking a certain file/folder.
A logical folder structure
Your files structured inside an intuitive manner
When you’re in charge of a number of web sites concurrently, it’s highly recommendable for you to have everything arranged. With some other File Managers, modifying a lot of websites in the same hosting account can be very challenging. With the File Manager, you will see that it’s in fact pretty easy. Every single website does have its own folder, that you can instantly acknowledge, and all of the files related to the specified site are found there.
And to make things even easier, you will find a drop–down menu from where it’s easy to choose on exactly which web host you wish to work inside the File Manager. Our smart system will take you there in seconds.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager made especially for the general public
Most online File Managers are sluggish and tricky to apply. They give reduced functions and generally aren’t really simple to use. We aim to improve that through the K2 Total Solutions File Manager. It’s designed to be intuitive and also to look like a product you already know – the File Manager on your PC.
All its features, the drag & drop file upload options, the right–click contextual menus, the inbuilt file editors, etcetera are there for 1 purpose – to create maintaining your web site(s) simpler.
Work with multiple files
Adjust a variety of files at the same time
Our File Manager will help you save a lot of time when working with numerous files. It’s possible to select different files simultaneously and use a desired action for them just like you do in your notebook or computer. To pick random files at once, just click the Control key, and to pick a group of adjacent files, use the Shift key. It’s that straightforward.
After you have selected the files, you can instantly transfer them to a different spot using the drag & drop option. With the help of the right–click contextual menu and also the buttons above the file table, you’ll be able to apply a number of other activities – you can copy, rename, delete, download and edit your files, transform file permissions, etc.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to take care of your details
There’s one typical path to guard a folder with a security password – by making an .htaccess file. In case, however, you aren’t technologically experienced sufficiently, you’ll have trouble carrying it out on your own. To make things easy, we have included an easy–to–navigate password protection interface to the File Manager obtainable inside the Site Control Panel.
To use this option, simply right–click on a directory and pick Password Protection. After that fill in the user name plus the security password that you like to apply and press the button. That’s it. The particular directory is hidden by the public eye and will be available only to approved account holders.
