A Control Panel is a web-based interface via which you can manage various aspects of your web presence. For example, you can easily create or modify website files, set up and check email messages, handle databases, check visitor statistics and so forth. Those things are carried out using buttons and menus within a web browser and the CP may also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the admin area associated with your Internet hosting account. Most of the Control Panels on the market will enable you to handle all hosting-related matters, but you shall usually require a different system to deal with payments or to get a new domain name if the company offers domain registrations. Depending on the platform they utilize, you can be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to diagnose a problem as well, or you may need to employ a third system.
