All website hosting accounts are managed using a CP and regardless of the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which allows you to browse the files you have uploaded in the web hosting account and to complete basic operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there could be more complex features as well, such as management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are simpler to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. As that is the primary tool that you'll use to handle your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it offers and if it will appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and could make managing your web presence more difficult.
