A Control Panel is a web-based interface via which you can manage numerous aspects of your online presence. For instance, you may create or change website files, create and check e-mails, manage databases, check visitor stats etc. These things are executed using buttons and menus inside an internet browser and the Control Panel could also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the admin area associated with your Internet hosting account. Most of the Control Panels available will enable you to control all hosting-related matters, but you will often need a different system to handle payments or to get a new domain when the company offers domain registrations. With respect to the platform they utilize, you can be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to resolve a problem too, or you may have to employ a third system.
