All web hosting accounts are handled from a Control Panel and whatever the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files which you have uploaded inside the website hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there could be more complex features too, such as management of permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are simpler to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that that's the primary tool that you will use to manage your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it comes with and if it'll appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and will make managing your web presence harder.
