The Control Panel offers a web-based interface to manage all of these things and everything else associated with the Internet hosting service using different sections in which you can access functions through menus and/or buttons. The less complicated to use a Control Panel is, the simpler it shall be for you to manage your world-wide web presence in general. In the standard scenario, the Control Panel is the Internet hosting account’s back office, while a separate billing account is used to control payments and domain name registrations - if the company offers this service. Trouble tickets can be managed via the billing account or through an independent system.
