Applied as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client alternatives, online file management tools have always been sluggish and poor in features. Still, when using the File Manager integrated in the My Web Bird Site Control Panel, you won’t only employ a fast, responsive and time and effort saving file managing client, but also a software tool that will make a third–party FTP program unnecessary. Check out some of the options that we have built–into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Upload files effortlessly
Moving files between your computer and any of your web sites is right now simple and fast, because of the drag & drop feature offered by the File Manager.

It requires seconds to upload a file and a bit longer for the bigger data files and folders.
You don’t need to set up any third party software or web browser add–ons. The drag–and–drop capability found in the File Manager operates equally well on all popular operating systems.

If you click a folder, you will also view the option to establish a completely new sub–folder or file inside.
When you select numerous files or folders, you will be able to use identical actions to all of them at the same time.
