A Control Panel is a web-based interface through which you can control various aspects of your world-wide web presence. For example, you could create or edit website files, create and check e-mails, control databases, check visitor statistics and so on. These things are carried out using buttons and menus within an internet browser and the CP may also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administration area associated with your Internet hosting account. Most of the Control Panels available on the market will permit you to handle all hosting-related matters, but you shall normally require a different system to manage payments or to get a new domain when the company offers domain registrations. Based on the platform they employ, you could be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to troubleshoot a problem also, or you might have to use a third system.
