A Control Panel is a web-based interface using which you can control various aspects of your web presence. As an illustration, you may set up or change website files, set up and check email messages, manage databases, check visitor statistics and so forth. Those things are executed using buttons and menus within a web browser and the CP could also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the admin area associated with your website hosting account. Most of the Control Panels available on the market will enable you to control all hosting-related matters, but you'll usually need a different system to manage payments or to get a new domain when 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 diagnose a problem as well, or you may need to employ a third system.
