All web hosting accounts are managed from a CP and regardless of the type of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files which you have uploaded in the hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there may be more advanced functions as well, such as management of permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are simpler to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. As this is the main tool that you will employ to handle your files, it is essential to check in advance what options it comes with and if it shall appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your online presence more complicated.
