Used as FTP client substitutes, web file managers have always been slow and poorly featured. Still, with the File Manager integrated in the 1stDomainNameServices Web Site Control Panel, you won’t only have a rapid, responsive and easy–to–use file managing interface, but also a software instrument that will make a third–party FTP application unneeded. Have a look at some of the features that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file upload options
Transmit files to your sites without any difficulty

You can drag data files from your personal computer and drop them in your Web Site Control Panel with a mouse–click through a risk–free SSL connection.
The drag–and–drop feature is built–into the Web Site Control Panel, so you will not need to install any third–party software pack to apply it. It will also work on all popular Operating Systems, so all you need to do to use it is sign in to your File Manager.
