Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software substitutes, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Still, with the File Manager included in the JDS Website Solutions Online Control Panel, you won’t just employ a rapid, intuitive and time and effort saving file supervision interface, but also a software instrument that will make an external FTP program unnecessary. Have a look at some of the features that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated way to add files
Submitting data files with an FTP tool is an outdated and really insecure method for shifting files from your desktop machine or laptop to a web hosting server. By reason of this, we have included drag–and–drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Just drag the files that you want to publish from your computer into your Internet browser and they’ll begin to publish in your website hosting profile through a protected SSL connection.
You don’t need to set up any additional software pack, web browser extensions or web apps. The drag–and–drop functionality works equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Control your files with just a click
Most File Managers specify all the activities you can carry out with a file or folder on the top of the page. We believe that the latter is just not intuitive enough. Using the File Manager, you can get all of the file administration choices at the time you right–click a file or folder. This option is also applicable for different files/folders.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or folder you decide on with a mouse–click.
Archive or extract archive files within seconds
Compared with nearly all file management interfaces as well as FTP clients, the JDS Website Solutions Online Control Panel features a way to archive/unarchive files way quicker. It is easy–to–work–with. To get a folder reduced into a compact size, just select it and then click the Compress button. To open up the items in an archived directory in your account, select it and click on the Extract button. The File Manager works with a wide range of file extensions, which include .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.
Online file editors
The fastest way for you to update your files
Our File Manager makes it possible for you to revise your files on the web hosting server without the need to download, adjust and afterwards re–upload them. You can actually change your files instantly on the net, using JDS Website Solutions’s included editors. We provide you with a code editor equipped with syntax emphasizing for your .PHP or .JS files, a WYSIWYG editor for HTML files, as well as a regular text editor for more experienced users.
You can access every single file editor making use of the right–click context menus. All of the alterations made to the files are shown right away online – you can easily directly preview them within the browser.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured with a convenient–to–use way
The File Manager displays all of the files and folders in a clear and understandable alphabetical arrangement. All the files associated with the different hosts are organized inside independent directories that are referred to as after their individual domain names, which means you can incredibly easy identify them. This is actually useful when you are managing a bunch of sites at the same time. There’s no opportunity to stray or to feel bewildered amidst the large number of files and directories inside your account.
To access the files with a host, just choose it from the drop–down navigation near the top of the file table. Alternatively, you can easily double–click on its directory and you are easily transported to a table listing its files exclusively.

Managing your files is intuitive and effortless using the JDS Website Solutions Online Control Panel. You’ll try a file managing atmosphere that’s very close to your desktop computer’s file explorer. You can drag & drop files and manage all of them with a right click of the mouse.

If you’d like support maintaining your files, you are able to make reference to the huge group of articles and how–to training videos, which you could get with merely a click of the mouse.
Work with multiple files
Change a number of files concurrently
The File Manager can help you save a plenty of time when you use many different files. You can actually select many different files at a time and use a pre–selected activity to them exactly like you do in your desktop computer or laptop. To select arbitrary files at the same time, simply hold down the Control key, and to pick a collection of nearby files, use the Shift key. It is that simple.
Once you have picked the files, you’ll be able to at once move them to an additional place thanks to the drag–and–drop option. By means of the right–click context menu and the buttons on top of the file table, you’ll be able to apply a myriad of other actions – it’s possible to copy, rename, delete, download and change your files, adjust file permissions, and so on.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to shield your details
If you want to password–secure a folder in your site, you will have to create an .htaccess file by hand. To no surprise, this generally is time–demanding and complicated if you are not well–experienced in hosting. With the File Manager, you can make a password–protected folder and hide all of its contents from the standard users with only a couple of clicks.
What you need to do is right–click a folder, go for Password Protection and choose the Add selection. After that simply select a login name and also a pass word.
