A Control Panel is a web-based interface using which you can manage various aspects of your world-wide web presence. For instance, you could set up or edit site files, create and check e-mail messages, control databases, check visitor statistics etc. Those things are performed via buttons and menus inside a web browser and the Control Panel could also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administrative area associated with your Internet hosting account. Most Control Panels on the market will permit you to manage all hosting-related matters, but you shall usually need a different system to handle payments or to get a new domain name when the company offers domain registrations. With respect to the platform they employ, you could 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 need to use a third system.
