All hosting accounts are managed via a CP and whatever the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files that you have uploaded in the website hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there can be more complex features as well, such as control over permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are easier to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. As this is the primary tool you'll use 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 may be a burden and could make managing your web presence more difficult.
