All website hosting accounts are handled via a Control Panel and irrespective of the type of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files you have uploaded inside the web hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the particular tool, there could be more advanced functions also, like management of permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that is the main tool you will use to handle your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it includes and if it'll suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and can make managing your web presence harder.
