The administration of all hosting-related factors is conducted via a tool referred to as ‘Control Panel’. There are several types that offer more or less functions, but in most cases, they all allow you to handle website files, to set up email addresses and databases, to see account usage stats or the amount of traffic your website visitors have generated. You can execute these actions through buttons and menus, and you'll feel like you’re managing your own computer or laptop. The billing part is usually managed from a separate system, which may include domain name registrations also - if the company provides this sort of services. Occasionally, trouble tickets may be opened usingexactly the same system, while in others, this may be executed via a different support interface, so you could end up working with 3 user interfaces with a single hosting account.
