cPanel, Comparing Illinois cPanel hosting and commercial providers

Comparisons and contrasts between web.illinois.edu and third-party commercial providers of web hosting, including other cPanel installations.

cPanel is a commercially available product also used by many other web hosting providers in addition to Illinois. This means that in addition to Illinois knowledge base articles, you can find a lot of information about cPanel from other sources, including cPanel's own documentation, Lynda.com, and more.

However, because we're providing it as a free service to campus community members rather than selling it for profit, some of what's discussed in other cPanel-using locations may not apply here.

When can I use other documentation on the Internet for help with cPanel?
