The administration of all hosting-related aspects is carried out through a software tool called ‘Control Panel’. There are various brands that provide more or less capabilities, but generally, they all allow you to administrate website files, to set up e-mail addresses and databases, to see account usage statistics or what amount of traffic your site visitors have generated. You are able to perform these actions through buttons and menus, and you'll feel as if you’re managing your own computer or laptop. The billing part is normally managed from a different system, which may include domain registrations as well - if the company provides this type of services. Sometimes, trouble tickets may be opened throughexactly the same system, while in others, this can be executed via a different support interface, so you may end up employing 3 user interfaces with a single web hosting account.
