A Control Panel is a web-based user interface through which you can manage various aspects of your online presence. As an illustration, you can easily set up or edit website files, create and check emails, handle databases, check visitor statistics and so forth. Those things are done using buttons and menus in a web browser and the Control Panel may also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the admin area associated with your hosting account. Most Control Panels out there will permit you to handle all hosting-related matters, but you will usually need a different system to take care of payments or to get a new domain when the company offers domain registrations. Based on the platform they utilize, you can be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to troubleshoot and fix an issue too, or you may need to employ a third system.
