The management of all hosting-related factors is performed through a tool called ‘Control Panel’. There are various types that offer more or less features, but in general, they all enable you to control website files, to set up e mail addresses and databases, to view account usage statistics or how much traffic your visitors have generated. You can perform these actions using buttons and menus, and you will feel as if you’re managing your own computer or laptop. The billing part is typically handled via a separate system, which can include domain name registrations also - if the company provides this kind of services. Occasionally, trouble tickets could be opened throughthe same system, while in others, this can be done through a different support interface, so you could find yourself using 3 user interfaces with a single hosting account.
