A logical folder structure

All the files inside your hosting account are neatly arranged into folders. Each and every web host has its own primary directory, that uses the file hierarchy that you’ve created. Using this method, it is very easy to maintain all of your hosts from one place without the probability of becoming lost or perplexed.
By standard, you will see each of the hosts conveniently listed in a table and when you mouse–click once over a given host, you’ll see all of the sub–folders and files associated with it. By clicking two times, you are going to visit a webpage which is centered on that host only. One other way to open the folder related to a certain host and to use it solely, is by using the drop–down menu near the top of the main File Manager file table.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager made for people
Most web File Managers are slow and tricky to employ. They offer modest possibilities and certainly are not really intuitive. We hope to change that through the Netlink File Manager. It is meant to be intuitive and also to resemble an item you know – the File Manager on your personal computer system.
All of its capabilities, the drag–and–drop file upload solutions, the right–click context menus, the built in file editors, etc. are available for 1 reason – to create maintaining your site(s) more simple.
Work with multiple files
Adjust various files simultaneously
Netlink’s File Manager can save you a lot of time when you use different files. You can easily pick different files at the same time and apply a pre–selected action for them exactly like you do with your desktop machine or laptop. To pick arbitrary files at the same time, simply click the Control key, and to choose a couple of adjacent files, press the Shift key. It is that straightforward.
When you have chosen the files, you are able to instantly transfer them to another location when using the drag–and–drop option. With the help of the right–click contextual menu along with the buttons above the file table, you can apply a number of other activities – it is possible to copy, rename, delete, download and modify your files, change file permissions, etc.
Quick & simple password protection options
The ultimate way to secure your information
If you would like to password–protect a folder on your site, you will have to set up an .htaccess file by hand. Expectedly, this can be time–demanding and sophisticated if you’re not a specialist in Linux hosting. With the File Manager, you can create a password–protected folder and conceal all its contents from the regular users with a handful of mouse–clicks.
All you need to execute is right–click a directory, pick out Password Protection and after that pick the Add option. And then simply define a username and a pass word. No additional setup is required and there is no reason to handle an .htaccess file. Our system will take care of every thing for you.
