A control panel is a web-based graphic interface which makes it possible to manage numerous features of your Internet hosting service. Some examples of things you will be able to do by using this type of a tool are e-mail and file management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, and many others. As you can find various control panel brands, the services that you'll be able to manage are also different and may also depend on the attributes 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 certain task. Such an instrument offers you the opportunity to use a point-and-click interface rather than inputting commands with complex syntax inside a command line. Though some users would rather have the latter option, the majority of users enjoy the easier level of administration that a control panel can offer.
