Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most straightforward way to add data files

Simply drag the files that you need to add from your PC into your Internet browser and they’ll begin to publish in your web hosting profile over a risk–free SSL communication.
There is no need to set up any additional software pack, web browser plug–ins or apps. The drag–and–drop functionality operates just as well on Windows, Linux or Mac.

Online file editors
Revise files straight from your Site Control Panel
