All website hosting accounts are managed using a Control Panel and regardless of the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files which you have uploaded inside the web hosting account and to execute simple operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there can be more complex features also, including management of permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. As that's the primary tool that you will employ to handle your files, it's 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 online presence harder.
