All website hosting accounts are managed from a Control Panel and regardless of the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which allows you to browse the files that you have uploaded inside the hosting account and to carry out simple operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there can be more advanced functions as well, such as control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that this is the main tool that you'll use to handle your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it provides and if it shall work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and will make managing your online presence harder.
