A Control Panel is a web-based interface using which you can manage numerous aspects of your world-wide web presence. For instance, you can create or modify site files, create and check e-mails, control databases, check visitor stats and so forth. Those things are carried out using buttons and menus in an internet browser and the CP can also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administration area associated with your Internet hosting account. Most Control Panels these days will allow you to control all hosting-related matters, but you will usually need a different system to handle payments or to get a new domain name when the company offers domain registrations. Based on the platform they employ, you can be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to diagnose a problem too, or you may have to use a third system.
