A control panel allows the customers of a web hosting company to manage much of their own affairs. For example, the control panel allows the owner of a domain to create and manipulate email and FTP accounts. The customer gets to do things quicker and without having to pay the hosting company for stuff they could do themselves.

The two big non-free and proprietary control panels are cpanel and plesk.

There are quite a few free software panels:
