A Control Panel is a web-based user interface via which you can handle various aspects of your world-wide web presence. As an illustration, you can create or change website files, set up and check e-mail messages, handle databases, check visitor stats and so on. These things are performed using buttons and menus within an internet browser and the Control Panel may also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administration area associated with your website hosting account. Most of the Control Panels out there will permit you to manage all hosting-related matters, but you shall commonly require a different system to deal with payments or to get a new domain when the company offers domain registrations. Depending on the platform they employ, you could be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to diagnose a problem too, or you may have to use a 3rd system.
