A Control Panel is a tool which is used to manage the content of a web hosting account. Including, but is not limited to, files, emails, databases, statistics as well as other operations performed with them. The Control Panel offers a web-based interface to handle these things and anything else associated with the Internet hosting service via different sections where you can access features through menus and/or buttons. The less complicated to use a Control Panel is, the simpler it'll be for you to handle your online presence in general. In the standard case, the CP is the Internet hosting account’s back office, while an independent billing account is employed to manage payments and domain name registrations - if the company offers that service. Trouble tickets can be handled via the billing account or through an independent system.
