A Control Panel is a web-based interface via which you can manage various aspects of your presence online. For instance, you can easily set up or edit website files, create and check e-mails, manage databases, check visitor stats etc. These things are executed through buttons and menus within 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 permit you to control all hosting-related matters, but you shall normally require a different system to deal with payments or to get a new domain in case 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 resolve an issue too, or you might have to use a third system.
