A Control Panel is a web-based user interface where you can control numerous aspects of your online presence. As an illustration, you can easily set up or modify website files, create and check emails, handle databases, check visitor stats and so on. These things are performed through buttons and menus inside a browser and the CP could also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the admin area associated with your Internet hosting account. Most Control Panels on the market will allow you to manage all hosting-related matters, but you'll commonly need a different system to control payments or to get a new domain name when the company offers domain registrations. Depending 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 an issue also, or you may need to employ a 3rd system.
