A Control Panel is a tool used to handle the content of an Internet hosting account. Including, but is not limited to, files, e-mails, databases, stats along with other operations executed with them. The Control Panel provides a web-based interface to control all of these things and anything else relevant to the hosting service using different sections in which you can access functions through buttons and/or menus. The less complicated to use a Control Panel is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your presence online in general. In the typical 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 provides that particular service. Trouble tickets can be addressed from the billing account or by using an independent system.
