All hosting accounts are managed through a Control Panel and whatever the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look at the files that you've uploaded inside the hosting account and to complete basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there can be more complex features too, including control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are simpler to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Since this is the main tool you'll employ to control your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it comes with and if it'll work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and could make managing your web presence more complicated.
