All website hosting accounts are managed from a CP and regardless of the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files you have uploaded inside the hosting account and to carry out simple operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there could be more complex functions as well, including control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are simpler to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that's the main tool you will employ to control your files, it is important to check in advance what options it provides and if it shall work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and can make managing your web presence harder.
