A Control Panel is a tool which is used to handle the content of a web hosting account. This includes, but is not limited to, files, email messages, databases, stats and different operations performed with them. The Control Panel provides a web-based interface to manage all of these things and everything else associated with the Internet hosting service using different sections where you can access features through menus and/or buttons. The less complicated to use a Control Panel is, the simpler it shall be for you to control your world-wide web presence altogether. In the standard scenario, 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 offers that particular service. Trouble tickets could be dealt with via the billing account or through an independent system.
