All hosting accounts are managed using a CP and regardless of the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which enables you to browse the files that you've uploaded inside the hosting account and to complete basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there could be more complex functions also, including control over permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are simpler to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that that is the primary tool that you will employ to control your files, it is important to check in advance what options it comes with and if it will suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and could make managing your presence online more complicated.
