A Control Panel is a software tool which is used to control the content of a website hosting account. Including, but is not limited to, files, emails, databases, statistics as well as other operations performed with them. The Control Panel offers a web-based interface to manage all these things and everything else relevant to the Internet hosting service via different sections where you can access functions through menus and/or buttons. The easier to use a Control Panel is, the easier it will be for you to control your presence online altogether. In the standard case, the Control Panel is the web hosting account’s back office, while a different billing account is employed to control payments and domain registrations - if the company provides that particular service. Trouble tickets could be addressed through the billing account or via an independent system.
