All website hosting accounts are handled using a CP and regardless of the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files which you have uploaded inside the website hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the particular tool, there could be more complex functions as well, such as management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are simpler to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that is the main tool you'll employ to control your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it offers and if it will appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your web presence more challenging.
