Applied as FTP software alternatives, web–based file management tools have always been sluggish and poorly featured. Nevertheless, using the File Manager built in the LiquidLayer.net Control Panel, you won’t only have a rapid, responsive and easy–to–work–with file managing client, but also a tool that will make a third party FTP application unnecessary. Consider several of the features that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The least complicated approach to publish files
Publishing files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and really unsafe way of transporting files from your laptop or computer to a hosting server. By reason of this, we have included drag–and–drop file upload support in the File Manager. Just pull the data files that you want to add from your PC into your Internet browser and they’ll begin to publish in your website hosting profile over a safe SSL communication.
There is no need to install any extra software, web browser extensions or applications. The drag & drop functionality performs equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Right–click context menus
Discover all the readily available file control possibilities with simply a click
Due to the right–click menus we’ve integrated in the File Manager, it is possible to revise all of your files incredibly easy. Click on a file or folder and through the panel that will appear, find the action that you would like. You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete virtually any picked file. Should you click on a folder, you can also see the option to make a new sub–folder or file inside.
Whenever you select many different files or directories, it is easy to apply the same procedures to all of them concurrently.
Manage archives with only a click of the mouse
The File Manager provides an internal archive/unarchive option that will help you submit big archives and extract them within your website hosting account blazingly fast. When compressing a file or directory, it is possible to decide on the name for the archive which is to be created along with its extension – .ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ. Also, it’s possible to compress active folders or files with a mouse–click.
The archive/unarchive solution provided by the File Manager helps you to handle substantial files right from your Control Panel. No need to make use of any third party software for example an FTP client in an effort to upload a substantial file in your website hosting account or download an archive on your desktop.
Integrated file editors
Absolutely no third party software packs are required
We have enclosed a group of file editors in the Control Panel to enable you to generate quick and easy corrections in your files and never have to make use of third party apps. In the File Manager you’ll find a WYSIWYG editor that can help you monitor all the current changes you create right away, a code editor that has syntax accentuating for your personal .JS or .PHP files, together with a plain text editor for more expert users. All the changes that you come up with and keep are going to be demonstrated right away on the web.
You can access the file editors when using the buttons at the top of the file table as well as by right–clicking any file/folder.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured in a convenient manner
All the files within your hosting account are structured into directories. Each and every host has its own primary directory, that uses the file structure which you have created. By doing this, it is really easy to deal with all of your hosts from one place without any probability of becoming lost or confused.
By default, you’ll see all of the hosts conveniently contained in a table and when you mouse–click once on a specific host, you will observe each of the sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking two times, you are going to visit a web page that is dedicated to that host exclusively. One other way to open the folder related to a given host and to work with it solely, is by using the drop–down menu near the top of the primary File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager devised for real people
Managing your files is natural and very easy employing the LiquidLayer.net Control Panel. You will try a file administration setting that’s very close to your desktop PC’s file explorer. You can drag & drop files and deal with all of them with a right mouse–click. Using the internal review option, you can observe images the same as they will show up on the Internet, and via the enclosed file editors you can create adjustments for your files live.
If you need guidance handling your files, you can refer to the massive number of posts and how–to training videos, that you can access using a click of the mouse.
Work with multiple files
Modify a wide range of files all at once

Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to take care of your details
If you want to password–protect a directory in your site, you have got to set up an .htaccess file manually. However, this is time–consuming and complex if you’re not a specialist in Linux web hosting. Thanks to the File Manager, you may create a password–secured directory and hide its contents from the standard users with just a few clicks.
Everything you should execute is right–click a directory, opt for Password Protection and after that pick the Add option. After that just specify a username together with a password.
