Used as FTP client alternatives, online file management tools have always been slow and poor in capabilities. However, when using the File Manager integrated in the Rainmaker Managed Technology Services Website Control Panel, you will not only have a quick, intuitive and time and effort saving file administration client, but also an application that will make a third–party FTP application unnecessary. Check out a few of the features that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add data files effortlessly
Transferring data files between your personal computer and any of your sites is now fast and simple, because of the drag’n’drop feature delivered by the File Manager. You can pull data files from your desktop machine or laptop and drop them in your Website Control Panel via secure SSL communication. That’s all. It requires just a few seconds to upload a file and slightly longer for any bigger files and directories.
There’s no need to put in any third party application or Internet browser addons. The drag–and–drop functionality built into the File Manager works equally efficiently on all major OS’s.
Right–click context menus
Control all of your with only a click
Most File Managers list all of the actions you can carry out on a file or directory on the top of the page. We feel this isn’t properly arranged. Thanks to the File Manager, you can get all file managing options whenever you right–click a file or directory. This option is also applicable for a number of files/folders.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or folder you decide on using a click of the mouse.
Manage archives with merely a click
The File Manager provides an integrated archive/unarchive solution that can help you add substantial archives and then extract them in your cloud hosting account in seconds. When compressing a file or directory, it will be easy to decide on the name for the archive which will be created and its particular extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. In addition, it is possible to compress active files or folders with simply a mouse–click.
The archive/unarchive option you can find at the File Manager enables you to handle large files directly from your Website Control Panel. No reason to apply any third party software like an FTP client so as to upload a substantial file onto your account or to download any archive in your desktop.
Integrated file editors
Zero third party applications are necessary
We have included a set of file editors in the Website Control Panel to enable you to come up with easy and quick alterations for your files and never having to make use of third party apps. Inside the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that will help you monitor all the current changes which you generate live, a code editor which includes syntax accentuating for one’s .JS or .PHP files, along with a plain text editor for more expert users. All the changes you create and save will be shown right away online.
You have access to the file editors making use of the buttons at the top of the file table and also by right–clicking a selected file/folder.
A logical folder structure
Your files structured in a convenient–to–use manner
If you are handling a lot of different sites simultaneously, it is vital that you have everything structured. With many other File Managers, updating a range of web sites inside the same hosting account can be quite challenging. With the File Manager, you will find that it is in fact rather easy. Every site does have its own directory, which you’ll quickly acknowledge, and all the files pertaining to the given website are found there.
And also to make everything so much easier, you will find a drop–down navigation from where you can quickly choose on 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 designed for regular people
The majority of online File Managers are sluggish and hard to make use of. They give constrained possibilities and are not really simple to use. We strive to transform that through the Rainmaker Managed Technology Services File Manager. It was designed to be intuitive and to resemble something you you are already familiar with – the File Manager on your personal computer system.
All its capabilities, the drag–and–drop file upload solutions, the right–click contextual menus, the inbuilt file editors, etcetera are there for a single purpose – to create handling your site(s) more convenient.
Work with multiple files
Change many files all at once
You can easily manage a multitude of files concurrently employing the multi–selection capacity of the Rainmaker Managed Technology Services File Manager. Everything you need to do is actually hold down the Control key and click on the files or directories you want to choose. In order to choose a group of files/folders in a row immediately, click on the first file/folder, click the Shift key and then pick the final file or folder within the collection.
If you have picked the required files/folders, you may either drag them to a different location, or employ different activities to them using the right–click contextual menu as well as the buttons near the top of the file table.
1–click password protection options
The ultimate way to secure your information
Password protection is the greatest technique to control the ways to access a specialized part of your website which you don’t want to be exposed to everyone. For instance, this might be a safe members’ place or, perhaps an area with copyrighted data that you would like only selected customers to get into.
In the File Manager it is easy to password–protect your website or possibly a certain folder within it with a mouse–click. Just right–click a directory, choose Password Protection and add your username and pass word. You don’t have to take care of .htaccess files or generate any extra adjustments. In the future, simply the site visitors which have your username and pass word will gain access to your website.
