The administration of all hosting-related factors is done via a software tool named ‘Control Panel’. There are several brands which provide more or less features, but in general, they all enable you to manage website files, to set up e-mail addresses and databases, to see account usage statistics or the amount of traffic your website visitors have generated. You'll be able to carry out these actions using buttons and menus, and you shall feel as if you’re managing your own computer or laptop. The billing part is typically addressed from a different system, which may include domain registrations also - if the company offers such services. Sometimes, trouble tickets can be opened usingthe same system, while in others, this can be executed through a different support interface, so you could find yourself using three user interfaces with a single web hosting account.
