Have a look at some of the options that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads

Because of this, we have integrated drag–and–drop file upload support in the File Manager. Just pull the files that you need to upload from your PC into your Internet browser and they’ll start to upload in your web hosting profile over a safe SSL communication.
You don’t need to install any extra computer software, browser add–ons or web apps. The drag–and–drop function works just as well on Windows, Mac or Linux.
