A Control Panel is a web-based user interface where you can control numerous aspects of your world-wide web presence. As an example, you could set up or edit site files, create and check emails, control databases, check visitor statistics and so on. These things are done through buttons and menus within an internet browser and the Control Panel can also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administrative area associated with your website hosting account. Most Control Panels on the market will allow you to handle all hosting-related matters, but you will commonly need a different system to take care of payments or to get a new domain when the company offers domain registrations. With respect to the platform they use, you can be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to resolve an issue also, or you might have to use a 3rd system.
