The administration of all hosting-related factors is done via a software tool referred to as ‘Control Panel’. There are numerous brand names that provide more or less functions, but typically, they all enable you to handle site files, to set up e-mail addresses and databases, to view account usage statistics or how much traffic your site visitors have generated. You can carry out these actions using buttons and menus, and you'll feel like you’re managing your own PC. The billing part is typically addressed from a different system, which may include domain name registrations too - if the company offers this type of services. Sometimes, trouble tickets could be opened usingthe same system, while in others, this may be done through a different support interface, so you might find yourself using three user interfaces with a single website hosting account.
