Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most simple way to publish data files
Posting files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and quite an unsafe way for switching data files from your desktop computer or notebook to a web hosting server. Because of this, we have integrated drag’n’drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Simply drag the files that you want to add from your desktop computer into your browser and they will begin to upload in your web hosting account over a protected SSL connection.
You do not have to deploy any additional computer software, browser extensions or programs. The drag & drop function works equally well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Right–click context menus
Virtually all file control options readily available
We have tried to make the File Manager as intuitive as it can be, so it is easy to generate modifications for your files. Aside from the conventional control bar near the top of the webpage, we have additionally designed right–click context menus with the general file administration possibilities. Just click on a file or directory and choose the activity that you’d like through the selection which will appear.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you select with only a click of the mouse. If you click a folder, you should also make a different directory or file in it.
The right–click choice is also available whenever you choose different files or folders at the same time.

Online file editors
