When you sign up for a hosting packing you will receive access to an area where you log into. This allows you to:

  • manage your hosting
  • set up your email
  • install software
  • do backups

These management areas vary across hosts. Your host will give you information on how to use your specific management area.

The most widely used management tool is called cPanel
