A Control Panel is a tool that is used to manage the content of a website hosting account. This includes, but is not limited to, files, e-mail messages, databases, statistics and various operations executed with them. The Control Panel provides a web-based interface to handle all these things and anything else relevant to the Internet hosting service using different sections where you can access functions through menus and/or buttons. The less complicated to use a Control Panel is, the simpler it shall be for you to manage your world-wide web presence in general. In the general case, the Control Panel is the hosting account’s back office, while a separate billing account is employed to control payments and domain registrations - if the company provides that particular service. Trouble tickets may be managed from the billing account or by using an independent system.
