The administration of all hosting-related aspects is done using a software tool known as ‘Control Panel’. There are different types which provide more or less capabilities, but in general, they all enable you to administrate website files, to set up e mail addresses and databases, to look at account usage stats or the amount of traffic your site visitors have generated. You could perform these actions through buttons and menus, and you'll feel as if you’re managing your own computer. The billing part is usually addressed via a different system, which can include domain registrations too - if the company offers this sort of services. Oftentimes, trouble tickets can be opened throughthe exact same system, while in others, this can be executed through a different support interface, so you might end up working with three user interfaces with a single website hosting account.
