The management of all hosting-related aspects is carried out through a software tool named ‘Control Panel’. There are various brands that provide more or less features, but typically, they all enable you to handle site files, to create e-mail addresses and databases, to look at account usage statistics or what amount of traffic your website visitors have generated. You'll be able to perform these actions via buttons and menus, and you shall feel as if you’re managing your own laptop or computer. The billing part is typically managed through a different system, which may include domain name registrations as well - if the company provides this kind of services. In some cases, trouble tickets can be opened usingthe same system, while in others, this could be done via a different support interface, so you may end up working with three user interfaces with a single web hosting account.
