Drag ’n’ drop file uploads

By reason of this, we have integrated drag & drop data file publish support in the File Manager. Simply pull the files that you need to add from your desktop into your browser and they’ll start to publish in your hosting account through a safe SSL connection.
There is no need to deploy any extra computer software, web browser plug–ins or web apps. The drag–and–drop capability operates just as well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
