All hosting accounts are managed from a Control Panel and regardless of the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which allows you to look into the files which you have uploaded in the website hosting account and to carry out simple operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there could be more advanced features too, like control over permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are simpler to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that's the primary tool that you will use to control your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it provides and if it'll appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and will make managing your presence online more challenging.
