The administration of all hosting-related details is done via a tool called ‘Control Panel’. There are various types that offer more or less capabilities, but in most cases, they all permit you to administrate site files, to set up email addresses and databases, to see account usage stats or the amount of traffic your site visitors have generated. You're able to perform these actions via buttons and menus, and you'll feel like you’re managing your own computer or notebook. The billing part is usually managed from a different system, which could include domain registrations also - if the company offers this kind of services. Occasionally, trouble tickets may be opened throughthe same system, while in others, this may be executed through a different support interface, so you could find yourself working with 3 user interfaces with a single web hosting account.
