Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software substitutes, online file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in capabilities. Nevertheless, using the File Manager built in the Mountaineer Web Hosting Online Control Panel, you won’t only have a quick, responsive and easy–to–work–with file management interface, but also an instrument that will make a third–party FTP program unnecessary. Take a look at some of the capabilities that we have integrated into our File Manager.

Drag ’n’ drop file uploads

The easiest way to upload files

Posting data files with an FTP tool is an outdated and really unsafe way for transporting files from your laptop or computer to a web server. For this reason, we have included drag’n’drop file publish support in the File Manager. Simply pull the files that you need to publish from your desktop computer into your web browser and they’ll start to publish in your hosting profile through a protected SSL communication.

There is no need to mount any additional software package, browser add–ons or programs. The drag–and–drop capability performs just as well on Windows, Linux and Mac.
