A Control Panel is a tool which is used to manage the content of a web hosting account. This includes, but is not limited to, files, emails, databases, statistics and different operations carried out with them. The CP provides a web-based interface to manage these things and everything else related to the Internet hosting service through different sections where you can access functions through menus and/or buttons. The easier to use a Control Panel is, the easier it shall be for you to control your web presence in its entirety. In the standard scenario, the Control Panel is the hosting account’s back office, while a different billing account is employed to manage payments and domain name registrations - if the company provides that service. Trouble tickets can be addressed through the billing account or through a separate system.
