A Control Panel is a web-based interface through which you can manage numerous aspects of your presence online. As an illustration, you may create or modify website files, set up and check emails, manage databases, check visitor statistics and so forth. Those things are executed via buttons and menus within an internet browser and the Control Panel could also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the admin area associated with your website hosting account. Most Control Panels available will enable you to manage all hosting-related matters, but you'll commonly need a different system to handle payments or to get a new domain if the company offers domain registrations. Depending 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 resolve a problem also, or you may have to use a third system.
