A Control Panel is a web-based interface where you can manage numerous aspects of your world-wide web presence. As an illustration, you could set up or change website files, create and check e-mails, handle databases, check visitor statistics and so forth. These things are executed via buttons and menus within an internet browser and the CP may also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administration area associated with your web hosting account. Most Control Panels available will enable you to manage all hosting-related matters, but you shall commonly require a different system to take care of payments or to get a new domain name if the company offers domain registrations. Based on the platform they employ, you may 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 need to employ a third system.
