A Control Panel is a web-based user interface via which you can control numerous aspects of your web presence. As an illustration, you may set up or edit site files, set up and check e-mail messages, control databases, check visitor statistics and so forth. Those things are carried out via buttons and menus in a web browser and the Control Panel could also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the admin area associated with your hosting account. Most of the Control Panels on the market will allow you to handle all hosting-related matters, but you will often require a different system to manage payments or to get a new domain name if 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 troubleshoot and fix a problem also, or you may need to employ a third system.
