The management of all hosting-related factors is performed through a software tool known as ‘Control Panel’. There are different types that provide more or less features, but typically, they all permit you to handle website files, to create email addresses and databases, to check out account usage stats or the amount of traffic your site visitors have generated. You may perform these actions through buttons and menus, and you'll feel as if you’re managing your own laptop or computer. The billing part is typically addressed via a separate system, which could include domain registrations as well - if the company provides such services. Sometimes, trouble tickets may be opened usingthe exact same system, while in others, this may be performed via a different support interface, so you may end up employing 3 user interfaces with a single website hosting account.
