New Billing Software
We’re happy to announce our new partnership with WHMCS! What is WHMCS? WHMCS is an all-in-one solution for web hosting billing software. We feel this is a better solution for our resellers as it includes several key features you will find listed below. This has a full import script to import any data existing customers may have in MB4 or MB5 as well. Not to mention the installation of WHMCS is as easy and painless as can be!
WHMCS also has a built in module for Reseller Central and will work one of two ways. One way to setup automation is to map packages within WHMCS to a location or you can add the optional dropdown to your order form allowing customers to choose from one of ten locations they wish to have their website hosted in.
WHMCS Feature Overview
WHMCS is a powerful integrated client management, billing &
support system. It provides everything you need to manage your clients. Packed
with features while remaining easy to use, we’ve tried to highlight what we feel
are the most important features below. Don’t just assume because you don’t see
something it’s not supported –
|Powerful & Flexible Billing
WHMCS supports Hosting, Reseller, Dedicated Server, Downloadable & Other Non
Hosting Related Products. Each product can have custom fields, configurable
options, addons, downloadable files and custom welcome emails specific to
that individual product. You can also create one off invoices with custom
line items – ideal for service invoicing.
|Automated Server & Domain
WHMCS can communicate with your servers and domain registrars to
automatically provision accounts, register/transfer domains, suspend,
unsuspend and terminate services, renew domains, update nameservers, modify
whois contact information, upgrade/downgrade packages and more. Also
supports server rotation and multiple active registrars concurrently.
|Integrated Support System
All clients need support and WHMCS gives you the tools you need to provide
it. It features an announcements section, knowledgebase, downloads and
support ticket system. The ticket system can handle both registered and
unregistered clients, has full email piping and multi-department support
with admin assignment.
In WHMCS, each of your clients has their own profile section. This contains
all their personal information, products/services, domains, invoices,
transactions, email history and notes. You can see statistics about the
client and manage their details from there including editing when and how
much they are due to pay, payment methods and adding notes.
|Payments, Gateways & Invoicing
WHMCS comes integrated with many payment gateways and will automatically
charge clients credit cards when due. All payments are logged in the system,
invoices can be paid using multiple partial payments, clients are credited
on overpayment and credit is automatically applied to future invoices.
Reminders are sent before payments are due and after.
|Complete Client Area
Unique to WHMCS is it’s client area. The client area gives clients one
single central access point to manage their account with you, request
support, place orders, view announcements and more… It also offers
features for non-registered visitors, with a domain checker, server status
summary, downloads and browsable knowledgebase. Also has multi-language
|Statistical Reports & Summaries
To asses how your business is doing, we know it’s important you have the
information you need. For that reason, WHMCS comes with a selection of
different reports which give you statistical and financial statistics. You
can also create your own reports using the modular reporting system
|Customisable & Developer
The client area is fully templated and unlike some systems, you don’t need a
degree in programming to be able to edit them! There is no PHP code in the
templates – it’s just regular HTML which you can edit in your favorite
editor. WHMCS also has an API which allows you to connect with it from other
systems and the modular design lets you add what you need.
