Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, web file managers have always been slow and poorly featured. Nevertheless, with the File Manager featured in the LeapBrowser Web Control Panel, you will not only have a fast, intuitive and user–friendly file management software, but also a tool that will make a third–party FTP program unneeded. Take a look at a few of the capabilities that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add data files with ease
Transferring files between your computer and any of your websites is right now easy and quick, thanks to the drag–and–drop option offered by the File Manager. You could pull files from your desktop machine or laptop and drop them in the Web Control Panel via secure SSL connection. That’s all. It usually takes a few seconds to upload a data file and a bit longer for the larger data files and folders.
There’s no need to install any third party application or Internet browser plugins. The drag’n’drop feature included in the File Manager works just as well on all leading operating systems.
Right–click context menus
Handle your files with just a mouse–click
Most File Managers list all of the actions you can perform with a file or folder on the top of the web page. We think the latter isn’t user–friendly enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you have access to all file management choices at the time you right–click a file or folder. This approach is likewise valid for many different files/folders.
It’s possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you select with merely a click of the mouse.
Archive or extract archive files in seconds
As opposed to most file management user interfaces as well as FTP clients, the LeapBrowser Web Control Panel has an option to archive/unarchive files faster. It is easy–to–navigate. To have a directory shrunk to a compact size, just choose it and click on the Compress button. To open up the belongings of an archived directory inside your cloud hosting account, choose it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager supports various file extensions, which include .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
The best solution to alter your files
Our File Manager helps you to manage your files on the server with no need to download, transform and then re–upload them. You can actually revise your files directly on the Internet, working with LeapBrowser’s internal editors. We provide a code editor offering syntax highlighting for your .JS or .PHP files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, and also a standard text editor for more skilled customers.
You have access to each file editor using the right–click context menus. All corrections produced to the files will be reflected instantly online – it is easy to directly examine them in your browser.
A logical folder structure
All of your files structured with an uncomplicated manner
All of the files within your hosting account are arranged into folders. Every host features its own main folder, which employs the file structure that you have defined. In this way, it is very easy to handle all of your current hosts from a single place with no chance of getting lost or baffled.
By default, you will notice all the hosts listed in a table and when you click once over a specific host, you will see all of the sub–folders and files pertaining to it. By clicking on twice, you will visit a web page that is dedicated to that host alone. Another way to open the folder related to a certain host and to use it solely, is to try using the drop–down menu at the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager intended for real people
Managing all of your files is instinctive and quick while using the LeapBrowser Web Control Panel. You are going to try a file control environment that’s very close to your personal computer’s file explorer. You can drag & drop files and manage all of them with a right click of the mouse. Thanks to the integrated preview option, you can view visuals exactly like they will be on the Internet, and via the bundled file editors you could make improvements for your files in real time.
If you would like guidance controlling your files, you can consult the massive variety of articles and how–to educational videos, which you could access with a mouse–click.
Work with multiple files
Adjust numerous files at the same time
You can work with many files at the same time employing the multi–selection ability of the LeapBrowser File Manager. What you need to do is simply hold down the Control key and then click on the files or folders that you like to select. If you want to select a selection of files/folders in a row immediately, pick the first file/folder, press the Shift key and afterwards choose the very last file or folder in the collection.
When you have picked the wanted files/folders, you can drag them to a distinct place, or implement various activities to them using the right–click context menu or maybe the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to take care of your data
If you wish to password–secure a directory in your site, you will need to configure an .htaccess file manually. However, this generally is time–demanding and complicated if you are not an expert in web hosting. Using our File Manager, you can create a password–secured directory and hide its items from the visitors with simply several clicks.
All you have to do is right–click a directory, choose Password Protection after which pick the Add option. Then simply indicate a user name as well as a password. No additional configuration is necessary and there is no need to address an .htaccess file. Our platform will manage every thing on your behalf.
