All hosting accounts are managed through a CP and regardless of the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files you have uploaded in the hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the particular tool, there may be more complex functions too, like control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are simpler to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that's the primary tool you will employ to manage your files, it is important to check in advance what options it comes with and if it'll appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and will make managing your web presence more challenging.
