A Control Panel is a tool employed to manage the content of an Internet hosting account. This includes, but is not limited to, files, e-mails, databases, statistics and different operations performed with them. The Control Panel offers a web-based interface to control all of these things and everything else relevant to the web hosting service using different sections in which you can access features through buttons and/or menus. The less difficult to use a CP is, the simpler it shall be for you to handle your world-wide web presence altogether. In the standard scenario, the CP is the hosting account’s back office, while an independent billing account is employed to manage payments and domain registrations - if the company provides that particular service. Trouble tickets may be managed via the billing account or via a separate system.
