A Control Panel is a web-based user interface where you can handle different aspects of your world-wide web presence. For instance, you can easily create or edit site files, set up and check emails, manage databases, check visitor stats and so on. Those things are carried out through buttons and menus within a browser and the Control Panel may also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administration area associated with your website hosting account. Most Control Panels available will enable you to handle all hosting-related matters, but you will often require a different system to deal with payments or to get a new domain 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 troubleshoot a problem too, or you may need to use a 3rd system.
