A Control Panel is a web-based interface through which you can control different aspects of your world-wide web presence. As an example, you could create or edit website files, set up and check email messages, control databases, check visitor statistics and so forth. Those things are done using buttons and menus inside a web browser and the CP can also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administrative area associated with your website hosting account. Most of the Control Panels on the market will permit you to control all hosting-related matters, but you shall usually need a different system to control payments or to get a new domain name if 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 an issue too, or you might have to employ a 3rd system.
