A Control Panel is a web-based user interface where you can handle various aspects of your online presence. For instance, you may create or modify website files, set up and check emails, handle databases, check visitor statistics and so forth. These things are performed via buttons and menus within an internet browser and the Control Panel could also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administrative area associated with your Internet hosting account. Most Control Panels available will enable you to control all hosting-related matters, but you will usually need a different system to deal with payments or to get a new domain if the company offers domain registrations. Depending 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 have to employ a third system.
