A Control Panel is a web-based interface using which you can manage different aspects of your presence online. For instance, you can create or modify website files, create and check emails, control databases, check visitor statistics etc. Those things are carried out through buttons and menus in a web browser and the Control Panel could also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the admin area associated with your Internet hosting account. Most Control Panels out there will enable you to handle all hosting-related matters, but you will normally need a different system to manage payments or to get a new domain if the company offers domain registrations. Based on the platform they employ, you can be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to resolve a problem as well, or you might have to employ a third system.
