A control panel is a web-based graphic interface which makes it possible to manage different features of your Internet hosting service. Examples of the things that you will be able to do by using such a tool are file and email management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, etc. As you can find many different control panel brands, the services that you can control are also different and may also depend on the attributes that the internet hosting company offers. For instance, you may have a particular option in one control panel and not in another, or it could take more steps to perform a certain task. Such an instrument offers you the option to use a point-and-click interface instead of inputting commands with complex syntax in a command line. Although some users prefer the aforementioned option, the majority of users like the easier level of administration that a control panel offers.
