All hosting accounts are managed using a Control Panel and regardless of the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files you have uploaded inside the hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there may be more advanced functions also, such as control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are simpler to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that that is the main tool that you'll use to control your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it comes with and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and can make managing your presence online more difficult.
