You can upload data files over a protected connection by dragging them into the web browser.

Have a look at the characteristics built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Move data files to your sites with ease
The File Manager in your Web Control Panel boasts a rapid, drag’n’drop capability that will allow you to move files between your personal computer and your hosting profile without the need to employ an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) tool. You can easily pull data files from your computer and drop them in your Web Control Panel with a click of the mouse through a protected SSL connection.
The drag’n’drop functionality is integrated into the Web Control Panel, which means you don’t have to install any third–party software to employ it. It also works well on all popular Operating Systems, so all you have to do to apply it is sign in to your File Manager.
Right–click context menus
Handle all files with only a click
The majority of File Managers specify all the actions that one can carry out on a file or directory at the top of the webpage. We think that this is just not user–friendly enough. With the File Manager, you can access all of the file control choices when you right–click a file or folder. This method is also valid for a lot of files/folders.
You’ll be able to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you select with a mouse–click.
Handle enormous files conveniently
Due to the in–built archive/unarchive option, the File Manager will allow you to work with large files with no need to use FTP. You’ll be able to pack a folder into a lightweight size by simply clicking on the Compress button or get the items in an archived folder by using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a folder or multiple files, it is also possible to choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and also the name of the archive file.
Online file editors
Modify files from your Web Control Panel
With the File Manager it is possible to edit your files instantly on the Internet employing some of the inbuilt instruments. The text editor reveals the files in a plain text file format, the code editor has syntax emphasizing for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor enables you to see your modifications while they appear online. Any changes that you make and save can be reflected at once online, so that you can examine them within your Internet browser and get back to generate more changes, in case you are not satisfied with the result.
There’s no need to download any files, to revise them on your PC and then to re–upload them back into your web hosting account. All of the editors are accessible using the buttons near the top of the file table or at the right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All your files structured inside an intuitive manner
When you are managing a large number of websites concurrently, it’s crucial that you have everything sorted out. With some other File Managers, revising several web sites in the same web hosting account can be quite challenging. With our File Manager, you will see that it’s in fact quite easy. Every single site has its own directory, which you’ll straight away recognize, and all the files related to the specific website are placed there.
And to make everything even easier, you will find there’s a drop–down navigation from where you can quickly choose on exactly which host you wish to work within the File Manager. Our intelligent system will lead you there within seconds.

Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to secure your data
There is a single popular approach to guard a folder with a pass word – by creating an .htaccess file. In case, however, you’re not technologically competent enough, you will have difficulty executing it by yourself. To make things straightforward, we’ve added an easy–to–navigate password protection interface to the File Manager readily available within the Web Control Panel.
To use this option, just right–click on a directory and choose Password Protection. Following that submit the user name as well as the password that you’d like to implement and press the button. That’s it. Now the particular directory is hidden by the standard users and will be accessible to approved account owners.
