All web hosting accounts are handled through a Control Panel and no matter the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which allows you to look into the files which you have uploaded inside the website hosting account and to complete simple operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting.

Since that is the main tool you shall use to manage your files, it's crucial to check in advance what options it provides and if it'll appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your presence online more complicated.
