Hey, WHMCS is a popular billing system which can be integrated with hosting control panels like cpanel/whm . In which we can generate invoices(actually automatically), add clients and a fully functional ticketing system. You can integrate whmcs with your domain(website) . So any one place one order it will directed to whmcs.

To be brief, WHMCS is a must if you are going to sell hosting to other people, not just manage your websites by your own.

Well, WHMCS being a "must" is subject to personal opinion. However, I agree that having some type of automation and billing management system is a must for selling. WHMCS isn't the be all end all. Quite frankly, if you have the resources I have always advocated building your own. Quite frankly I don't like giving other companies in the same industry information about my or my associates businesses.

In my opinion, Blesta.com is much better.

If you intend to sell domain names and web hosting, you need a billing system and WHMCS is one such billing system. There are other billing system that are equivalently good such as Clientexec and Blesta. WHMCS is owned by cPanel and has a good development and upgrade path, so it makes it more stable and reliable.

WHMCS is not really for selling tangible goods, it is mostly for selling digital goods and services (ie. hosting services, software/games licences accounts, web design services, domain names, etc...) and supporting them (tech support) + managing the clients and their billing matters (billing management) and yes it is widely compatible with a lot of hosting control panel which makes it a great choice for many !...

I have seen businesses use WHMCS in various ways, from selling goods, outsourcing staff and even consultations. Its a billing software which can be used for more than just webhosting. The main reason for it being so popular is its security, constant updates and quality support, not to mention the price tag which is resonable for the amount of features. There are other options and some are free aswell, however none come close to WHMCS.

There are other billing platforms, but WHMCS is easy to use, simple to integrate and many other reputed companies prefer it over others.

WHMCS provides your customers with a client area, where they can log in to manage products and services they have purchased from you, your customers can also submit requests for technical support through this interface.

WHMCS is a hosting billing, support and management automation tool or script. WHMCS is very powerful and it automates most of the tasks that other billing software does not do as good as WHMCS. I have used other software except blesta.

I can say that WHMCS is probabily the best software for hosting businesses. Its my personal opinion from my experience. If you are thinking of starting hosting businesses you have to use a hosting management and automation script like WHMCS.

WHMCS works best for CPanel / WHM based control panel and Linux based server.

Hope this helps you. Thank you.

Hello,

WHMCS has many advantages to traditional software including;

• Very Popular in the Web Hosting Industry
• Low Cost Monthly Fee
• Automated Billing Solution
• Miniature Website
• Compatibility with website themes
• Automated Hosing/Domain Setup
• Built-In Support Module
• Exclusive Deals with Domain Sellers - Such as no deposits at eNom.
• Easy Staff Management
• Company Performance Chart
• Can be setup for tax records.
• Knowledgebase and Server Status page for clients.
• Extensive Documentation
• Hundreds of Modules and Add-Ons

The above are just a few advantages of whmcs compared to traditional or freeware alternatives such as 'email billing' and BoxBilling.

I hope I helped shed light on why WHMCS is such as great platform for web hosts and domain registrars.

I'd say its safe to say that WHMCS is the leader in web hosting automation/billing software. Its easy to use, they regularly release new updates, there are hundreds, if not thousands of addons/plugins for it. And for $15/month, its very affordable.
