All hosting accounts are managed from a CP and whatever the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look at the files you have uploaded inside the hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there can be more advanced functions as well, including management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that's the primary tool you will employ to manage your files, it is essential to check in advance what options it offers and if it will suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your web presence more complicated.
