Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software alternatives, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Nonetheless, using the File Manager featured in the Ayasoftware.ca Website Control Panel, you will not only employ a quick, intuitive and easy–to–work–with file management software, but also a software instrument that will make a third party FTP program unneeded. Check out several of the capabilities that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Add files easily
Moving data files between your personal computer and any of your web sites is right now easy and quick, because of the drag & drop feature provided by the File Manager. You could pull data files from your desktop machine or notebook and drop them in your Website Control Panel over a secure SSL connection. That’s it. It will take a few seconds to add a data file and a bit longer for any larger data files and directories.
There is no need to add any third–party computer software or web browser addons. The drag’n’drop function contained in the File Manager works equally well on all leading operating systems.
Right–click context menus
All file management choices readily available
We have always given our best to make the File Manager as easy–to–use as it could possibly be, so you can create adjustments to your files. Besides the conventional command bar near the top of the web page, we have now also integrated right–click context menus with all the general file administration choices. Click on a file or directory and select the activity you want through the selection that will show up.
You can easily rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you select with a click of the mouse. In the event you click a directory, it is possible to generate a brand new folder or file within it.
The right–click choice is conveniently obtainable when you select multiple files or folders at once.
Handle big files effortlessly
Thanks to the built–in archive/unarchive option, the File Manager will allow you to deal with substantial files and not having to use FTP. You’re able to pack a folder into a compact size by clicking on the Compress button or get the items in an archived folder using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a folder as well as a couple of files, it is possible to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and then the title of one’s archive file.
Online file editors
The best way to adjust your files
Ayasoftware.ca’s File Manager allows you to modify your files entirely on the server without needing to download, transform and subsequently re–upload them. You can actually change your files instantly on the Internet, making use of Ayasoftware.ca’s integrated editors.

A logical folder structure
All of your files arranged with a convenient method
When you are working with a great number of sites at the same time, it’s crucial for you to have every little thing structured. With other File Managers, updating a number of websites in the same website hosting account can be quite difficult. Using our File Manager, you’ll find that it’s in fact pretty simple. Every single website does have its own directory, that you’ll right away recognize, and all of the files associated with the specified website are found there.
And then to make things even easier, we have a drop–down navigation from which you can quickly choose on which host you wish to work within the File Manager. Our clever system will take you there in seconds.

1–click password protection options
The ultimate way to take care of your information
Password protection is the best path to constrain the means to access a certain section of your website you do not need to be obvious to everyone. For example, this could be a secure members’ place or even an area with copyrighted data that you would like exclusively selected customers to reach.
From the File Manager you can easily password–protect your web site as well as a specific folder inside with merely a click of the mouse.
