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 the things that you can do using such an instrument are file and e-mail management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, etc. As you can find various control panel brands, the services that you can manage are also different and may also depend on the characteristics 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 additional steps to perform a specific task. Such a tool provides you with the opportunity to use a point-and-click interface rather than typing commands with complex syntax in a command line. Even though some users would rather have the aforementioned option, the vast majority of users like the easier level of administration that a control panel can offer.
