A Control Panel is a web-based user interface using which you can control numerous aspects of your presence online. As an example, you can create or modify website files, create and check e-mail messages, control databases, check visitor statistics and so on. These things are executed via buttons and menus inside an internet browser and the Control Panel could also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administrative area associated with your hosting account. Most of the Control Panels available on the market will allow you to manage all hosting-related matters, but you'll usually require a different system to handle payments or to get a new domain when the company offers domain registrations. With respect to the platform they utilize, you can be able to use the billing account to open a support ticket to ask a question or to resolve an issue as well, or you may need to use a third system.
