All web hosting accounts are handled using a CP and whatever the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you look into the files that you have uploaded inside the web hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there may be more complex functions also, such as control over permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are simpler to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that this is the primary tool you will use to manage your files, it's crucial to check in advance what options it provides and if it'll work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and can make managing your web presence harder.
