I get Error reading web site information when i click my website in Websitepanel

A) this usually means that either

a) you have deleted wwwroot/web.config
b) edited wwwroot/web.config and currupt the file.

Create a new file in file manager, call this web.config and place it in your wwwroot

enter the below as the content and save the file. this will fix your problem:
