All web hosting accounts are managed via a Control Panel and irrespective of the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files you have uploaded in the web hosting account and to complete basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there may be more complex features too, including management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are simpler to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that's the primary tool that you'll use to manage your files, it is essential to check in advance what options it includes and if it'll work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your presence online more complicated.
