WHMCS: how can you benefit?
WHMCS is a client management, billing and support solution for online businesses. It is popular within the domains and web hosting industry, especially amongst domain name resellers, smaller web hosts, agencies and IT service companies. This web based application allows you provide a platform for your customers to purchase and administer their own services, pay invoices and contact you for support. It also offers a powerful administrative interface to enable you to manage customers and their purchased services, taking control of your online business.
Some of the features of WHMCS include shopping cart functions, automatic billing, insights and detailed reporting, the ability to define and sell your own products, a knowledgebase with service alerts and a client-facing control panel to allow your customers to self-serve and administer their own domains. You can install and run WHMCS alongside your existing website, plugging in the shopping cart and management interface for an integrated solution.
The setup and installation of WHMCS is fairly straightforward if you are familiar with running web based applications and are familiar with configuring hosting environments (especially cPanel and WHM), but it will take some time and patience to set up and configure your products and services. For resellers who have a technical background and the patience and time to invest in configuration and management, WHMCS represents a solution and platform that can add value to your business.
WHMCS offer online documentation, video tutorials, a community forum and email based support to assist users in setup and management of the application.
Due to the popularity of WHMCS within our industry, TPP Wholesale have created a number of WHMCS integration modules for our resellers:
- Firstly, we have a domain registrar module, allowing registration, transfer and management of domain names.
- For resellers who use our resource based hosting products, you can also integrate your cPanel WHM Hosting plan, or your Cloud Reseller Hosting where you define your own product parameters.
As a web based application, WHMCS can be run in our shared hosting environment (cPanel or cloud), or on a standalone VPS server. For resellers who are looking for a solution that requires less technical configuration and investment to set up, including outsourced transaction handling and commission payouts, you may wish to consider our Whitelabel solutions. If you aren’t sure which option you want to go with, why not contact your account manager for a personal consultation and recommendation specifically tailored to your own business needs?
It is easy to integrate your cPanel WHM to WHMCS at TPP Wholesale, for further information please do not hesitate to contact us on 02 9215 6001 or email us today.
