It’ll enable you to speedily take care of your websites without the need to make use of an FTP software. You can publish files over a secure connection by dragging them into the web browser. Also, you can easily archive and unarchive files and directories, set password–protected locations, modify file permissions and much more. Take a look at the capabilities included in our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The easiest approach to publish files
Submitting files with an FTP tool is an out–of–date and really insecure way of relocating files from your personal computer to a server. This is why, we have integrated drag’n’drop file upload support in the File Manager. Just drag the files that you want to publish from your desktop computer into your Internet browser and they’ll begin to publish in your hosting profile through a secure SSL communication.
You do not have to deploy any extra software, browser plug–ins or web apps. The drag–and–drop function works equally well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Right–click context menus
Handle all of your with merely a mouse–click
The vast majority of File Managers list all of the activities that you can execute on a file or directory on the top of the webpage. We feel that this is just not intuitive enough. Thanks to the File Manager, you can get all of the file management options whenever you right–click a file or directory. This option is also applicable for a group of files/folders.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete every file or directory you decide on using a click of the mouse.
Make use of enormous files incredibly easily
Due to the inbuilt archive/unarchive option, the File Manager enables you to work with enormous files without having to use FTP. It is easy to pack a folder to a lightweight size by clicking on the Compress button or access the contents of an archived folder by using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a folder or a group of files, you can also choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and also the title of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
Modify files straight from your Web Site Control Panel
From your File Manager you’ll be able to alter your files instantly online by using any of the built in instruments. The text editor displays the files with a plain text formatting, the code editor has syntax accentuating for your .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor enables you to view your changes as they show up live. Also, all changes which you make and keep will be reflected immediately on the net, in order for you to review them inside your Internet browser and go back to create further modifications, in case you are not satisfied with the result.
It is not necessary to download your files, to revise them in your personal computer and to re–upload them back into your web hosting account. Each of the editors are accessible via the buttons near the top of the file table or through the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files organized with a convenient manner
All the files in your web hosting account are organized into folders. Every single web host features its own main directory, that uses the file structure that you’ve defined. Using this method, it is an easy task to maintain all of your hosts from one place without chance of becoming lost or confused.
By default, you’ll see each of the hosts placed in a table and if you mouse–click once over a specific host, you will see each of the sub–folders and files pertaining to it. By clicking two times, you are going to go to a web page that’s focused on that host only. Another way to load the folder associated with a specific host and then to use it exclusively, is by using the drop–down menu towards the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager developed for real people
Dealing with your files is intuitive and quick while using the Lightbuilder Web Site Control Panel. You will have a file managing environment that’s not far from your desktop machine’s file explorer. It is possible to drag & drop files and manage all of them with a right click of the mouse. When using the inbuilt preview solution, you can see visuals the same as they will appear online, and throughout the designed file editors you can make corrections in your files live.
Any time you need support taking care of your files, you can consider the big variety of articles and how–to training videos, which you can access with simply a click of the mouse.

Change a wide range of files all at once
You’ll be able to handle a plethora of files at the same time employing the multi–selection ability of the Lightbuilder File Manager. Everything you need to do is just hold down the Control key and click on the files or directories that you like to select. If you wish to pick a variety of files/folders in a row at the same time, click on the first file/folder, hold down the Shift key after which click on the last file or folder within the collection.
When you have chosen the desired files/folders, you may either drag them to an alternative spot, or use various activities to them when using the right–click contextual menu or the buttons at the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The easiest method to guard your information
In order to password–protect a folder on your website, you need to make an .htaccess file manually. Expectedly, this is time–demanding and sophisticated if you’re not well–experienced in computing. Thanks to the File Manager, you may create a password–protected folder and hide all of its contents from the regular users with simply several mouse–clicks.
What you need to complete is right–click a directory, choose Password Protection and choose the Add option. After that simply identify a username as well as a security password. No extra configuration is required and there is no reason to handle an .htaccess file. Our platform will manage every thing on your behalf.
