This is why, we have included drag’n’drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Simply drag the files that you want to add from your desktop into your web browser and they will start to upload in your hosting profile over a protected SSL communication.
You don’t have to install any additional software pack, browser extensions or web apps. The drag–and–drop function works equally well on Windows, Linux or Mac.

Edit files directly from your Web Control Panel
Through the File Manager you’ll be able to revise your files instantly on the net working with any of the built in tools.

All the changes which you create and save will be displayed right away on the Internet, allowing you to examine them with your browser and get back to generate more modifications, if you are not happy with the result.
