All website hosting accounts are handled from a CP and whatever the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which allows you to browse the files which you have uploaded in the web hosting account and to complete basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there can be more advanced features as well, including control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are simpler to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. As that is the main tool you'll employ to control your files, it is crucial to check in advance what options it offers and if it'll work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and will make managing your online presence harder.
