A Control Panel is a web-based user interface where you can manage numerous aspects of your web presence. As an illustration, you could create or edit site files, create and check e-mails, handle databases, check visitor statistics etc. Those things are carried out through buttons and menus within a browser and the CP can also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administrative area associated with your web hosting account. Most Control Panels available on the market will enable you to control all hosting-related matters, but you will often require a different system to control payments or to get a new domain when the company offers domain registrations. Based on the platform they utilize, you could be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to diagnose a problem too, or you might have to employ a third system.
