Top Features

Maintain

Optimise your database tables. Clean your temporary directory. Or perform any of the countless other daily maintenance tasks with a single click each.

Redirect easily

PRO Do you find the Redirect component hard to use? Are you puzzled by its inability to redirect URLs with parameters? No problem! Admin Tools' URL Redirect can do that. And much more.

Change permissions

Fine-tune your file permissions without having to use FTP or SSH.

Protect your site

PRO Our Web Application Firewall protects your site against the vast majority of common attacks. You won't find any security tool more feature-complete than this.

.htaccess / web.config / NginX Conf Maker

PRO Give your site the best overall protection. Create a sophisticated, secure .htaccess, web.config or NginX configuration with an easy GUI. You don't have to be an expert. Or even know how these files work.

Watch. Sniff. Catch.

PRO Admin Tools' PHP File Change Scanner will monitor your site's PHP files for changes. If something is amiss, it will let you know. It will even tell you which files might have been hacked.

Automate it

PRO Let the most useful maintenance operations run automatically. Use a CRON to keep the file change scanner ticking while you're fast asleep. Simply and efficiently.
