A Control Panel is a web-based interface via which you can control different aspects of your web presence. As an illustration, you may set up or modify website files, create and check emails, manage databases, check visitor stats and so on. These things are executed through buttons and menus in a web browser and the Control Panel can also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the admin area associated with your hosting account. Most Control Panels out there will permit you to control all hosting-related matters, but you will often require a different system to control payments or to get a new domain in case the company offers domain registrations. With respect to 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 also, or you may need to use a 3rd system.
