A control panel is a web-based graphic interface that enables you to manage various features of your web hosting service. A few examples of things you will be able to do by using such an instrument are file and email management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, and so on. Since you can find many different control panel brands, the services that you'll be able to control are also different and may also depend on the features that the internet hosting company offers. For instance, you may have a given option in one control panel and not in another, or it could take additional steps to do some task. Such an instrument gives you the opportunity to use a point-and-click interface rather than inputting commands with complex syntax in a command line. Even though some users would prefer the latter option, the vast majority of users welcome the easier level of administration which a control panel can offer.
