Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, web file managers have always been slow and poor in capabilities.

Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most straightforward method to add files
Uploading data files with an FTP client is an out–of–date and quite an insecure way for transmitting data files from your desktop machine or notebook to a web server. Because of this, we have included drag’n’drop file publish support in the File Manager. Simply pull the data files that you need to publish from your desktop computer into your browser and they’ll start to publish in your web hosting account over a protected SSL connection.
You don’t have to mount any extra software pack, browser plug–ins or web apps. The drag–and–drop function works just as well on Windows, Mac and Linux.
