All web hosting accounts are managed from a CP and regardless of the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which allows you to look at the files you have uploaded inside the web hosting account and to carry out simple operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there can be more advanced functions also, like control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that this is the primary tool you will use to manage your files, it is important to check in advance what options it offers and if it will appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your online presence harder.
