The control panel is an essential part of any web hosting account. You wouldn't be able to do very much without some sort of control panel -- even just a basic one.

Among the most widely used web hosting control panels are cPanel, Parallels Plesk, and DirectAdmin (shown below). Some control panels only run on Linux, some are meant for Windows, and some will work with both types of operating system.
