All web hosting accounts are handled from a CP and no matter the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which enables you to browse the files which you have uploaded inside the hosting account and to complete basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there can be more advanced functions too, such as control over permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are easier to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that this is the primary tool that you'll use to control your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it offers and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and will make managing your online presence more difficult.
