A Control Panel is a web-based user interface via which you can manage numerous aspects of your web presence. As an illustration, you can easily set up or edit website files, set up and check e-mails, manage databases, check visitor statistics etc. These things are performed using buttons and menus in a 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 on the market will enable you to manage all hosting-related matters, but you'll often require a different system to deal with payments or to get a new domain when the company offers domain registrations. Based on the platform they use, you could be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to troubleshoot an issue too, or you may have to employ a third system.
