A Control Panel is a software tool that is used to handle the content of an Internet hosting account. This includes, but is not limited to, files, e-mails, databases, stats and different operations carried out with them. The Control Panel offers a web-based interface to manage these things and anything else associated with the web hosting service using different sections where you can access functions through menus and/or buttons. The less difficult to use a Control Panel is, the simpler it'll be for you to handle your world-wide web presence as a whole. In the common case, the Control Panel is the Internet hosting account’s back office, while an independent billing account is employed to handle payments and domain registrations - if the company offers this particular service. Trouble tickets could be addressed from the billing account or via a different system.
