All web hosting accounts are managed using a Control Panel and no matter the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files which you have uploaded inside the Internet hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there may be more advanced functions also, like control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. As this is the main tool you shall use to control your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it includes and if it shall work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and can make managing your web presence harder.
