A Control Panel is a web-based user interface through which you can handle different aspects of your online presence. As an example, you could set up or modify website files, create and check e-mail messages, handle databases, check visitor statistics and so on. Those things are done via buttons and menus within a browser and the Control Panel could also be called ‘back office’, i.e. the administration area associated with your Internet hosting account. Most Control Panels on the market will enable you to control all hosting-related matters, but you will often require a different system to deal with payments or to get a new domain if the company offers domain registrations. Based 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 might have to use a 3rd system.
