How to keep the order of the csv file when uploading it as a shapefile?

When uploading a CSV to Shapefile on ArcOnline, is there a way to keep the table in the shapefile and the associated dbf file in the same order as the csv file? When I open the shapefile table, the data is not in the same order as it was in the original csv. I can order it in the the table in ascending order, but when I save the shapefile and export to download, that sort does not get saved.

permanent sorts are only maintained when the sort tool is used on the data set
