A Control Panel is a web-based interface where you can control various aspects of your world-wide web presence. As an example, you can easily create or change website files, create and check emails, control databases, check visitor stats and so forth. These things are executed through buttons and menus in a web browser and the Control Panel can also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administration area associated with your website hosting account. Most of the Control Panels available will allow you to handle all hosting-related matters, but you shall often require a different system to handle payments or to get a new domain name when the company offers domain registrations. With respect to the platform they utilize, you can be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to resolve a problem as well, or you may have to use a 3rd system.
