A Control Panel is a software tool that is used to manage the content of a web hosting account. Including, but is not limited to, files, e-mails, databases, statistics and different operations carried out with them. The Control Panel provides a web-based interface to handle all these things and anything else associated with the website hosting service using different sections in which you can access features through buttons and/or menus. The less complicated to use a Control Panel is, the simpler it shall be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. In the standard case, the Control Panel is the Internet hosting account’s back office, while a different billing account is employed to handle payments and domain registrations - if the company provides that service. Trouble tickets may be managed from the billing account or through a separate system.
