A control panel is a web-based graphic interface which permits you to manage numerous aspects of your Internet hosting service. Examples of what you'll be able to do through such an instrument are e-mail and file management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, etcetera. As there're various control panel brands, the services that you can control are also different and can also depend on the characteristics that the internet hosting company provides. For instance, you may have a particular option in one control panel and not in another, or it could take more steps to perform some task. Such an instrument offers you the chance to use a point-and-click interface rather than typing commands with complex syntax within a command line. Although some users prefer the aforementioned option, the vast majority of users welcome the easier level of administration that a control panel offers.
