A Control Panel is a software tool that is used to manage the content of an Internet hosting account. This includes, but is not limited to, files, email messages, databases, statistics and different operations carried out with them. The Control Panel offers a web-based interface to manage all of these things and everything else related to the Internet hosting service via different sections where you can access features through buttons and/or menus. The easier to use a CP is, the simpler it shall be for you to control your world-wide web presence in general. In the general case, the CP is the Internet hosting account’s back office, while a different billing account is used to manage payments and domain registrations - if the company offers that service. Trouble tickets can be managed through the billing account or via an independent system.
