A Control Panel is a software tool employed to control the content of an Internet hosting account. Including, but is not limited to, files, e-mails, databases, stats along with other operations carried out with them. The Control Panel provides a web-based interface to handle all of these things and everything else relevant to the hosting service via different sections where you can access functions through menus and/or buttons. The easier to use a CP is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your world-wide web presence as a whole. In the standard scenario, the CP is the Internet hosting account’s back office, while a separate billing account is employed to control payments and domain registrations - if the company offers that particular service. Trouble tickets may be addressed from the billing account or by using a separate system.
