All website hosting accounts are managed from a Control Panel 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 in the website hosting account and to complete basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there may be more advanced functions as well, including control over permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are simpler to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that is the main tool that you'll employ to handle your files, it is important to check in advance what options it comes with and if it'll work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and can make managing your presence online harder.
