The administration of all hosting-related aspects is done through a software tool called ‘Control Panel’. There are several brands that offer more or less capabilities, but in general, they all enable you to administrate site files, to set up email addresses and databases, to look at account usage stats or what amount of traffic your site visitors have generated. You'll be able to execute these actions via buttons and menus, and you'll feel like you’re managing your own notebook or computer. The billing part is commonly addressed via a different system, which could include domain registrations too - if the company provides this kind of services. Occasionally, trouble tickets could be opened throughthe same system, while in others, this could be done using a different support interface, so you can find yourself employing three user interfaces with a single hosting account.
