Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client substitutes, web file managers have always been slow and poorly featured. Nevertheless, when using the File Manager built in the Host A Domain Site Control Panel, you will not only have a fast, responsive and time and effort saving file supervision software, but also a software tool that will make a third–party FTP application unneeded.

Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The simplest way to add data files
Importing files with an FTP tool is an outdated and quite an insecure way of transmitting files from your desktop machine or notebook to a server.

Just drag the files that you want to publish from your PC into your Internet browser and they’ll begin to upload in your website hosting profile through a secure SSL communication.
You don’t have to mount any additional software package, browser extensions or applications. The drag & drop function operates just as well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
