All web hosting accounts are handled via a Control Panel and whatever the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you look into the files that you have uploaded in the web hosting account and to execute simple operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the particular tool, there could be more advanced functions as well, like management of permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are simpler to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Since this is the primary tool that you will use to control your files, it's crucial to check in advance what options it provides and if it'll appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and can make managing your online presence more difficult.
