A Control Panel is a web-based user interface through which you can handle numerous aspects of your world-wide web presence. For instance, you could set up or change site files, create and check emails, manage databases, check visitor stats and so forth. These things are executed via buttons and menus in a web browser and the Control Panel can also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the admin area associated with your website hosting account. Most Control Panels available will enable you to control all hosting-related matters, but you shall usually require a different system to handle payments or to get a new domain when the company offers domain registrations. Based on the platform they use, you may be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to troubleshoot and fix a problem too, or you may have to employ a third system.
