A Control Panel is a web-based interface through which you can manage different aspects of your online presence. For example, you can easily create or edit website files, set up and check e-mails, control databases, check visitor stats and so on. Those things are done using buttons and menus within an internet browser and the Control Panel may also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the admin area associated with your website hosting account. Most Control Panels on the market will enable you to handle all hosting-related matters, but you will commonly require a different system to manage payments or to get a new domain when the company offers domain registrations. Based 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 troubleshoot and fix an issue as well, or you may need to use a third system.
