A control panel is a web-based graphic interface which enables you to manage numerous aspects of your web hosting service. A few examples of things you will be able to do through such a software tool are file and email management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, and so on. As there are many different control panel brands, the services that you'll be able to control are also different and can also depend on the features that the internet hosting company provides. For example, you may have a particular option in one control panel and not in another, or it may take additional steps to do a specific task. Such a tool provides you with the opportunity to use a point-and-click interface instead of entering commands with complex syntax within a command line. Despite the fact that some users would prefer the aforementioned option, the majority of users enjoy the easier level of administration that a control panel can provide.
