    I'd say boxbilling is the best free WHMCS alternative. To be honest the paid WHMCS and similar products are far better and well worth buying for their small cost.

    I agree , boxbilling is one of the opensource billing system , however comparing to WHMCS its way behind than it.

    I think BoxBilling is free, not open-source.

    There are alternatives available for the WHMCS. Best alternative is Blest, HostBill. Blesta is not open source while HostBill is the opensource. Blesta used to run only on Linux platform while HostBill used to run on Linux as well as Windows platform. HostBill is very convenient for the large web hosting companies.

    I have to be honest here, there is just no competition for WHMCS. The amount of third-party add-ons and themes makes it clearly better.
    You also have to consider how much people are used to the WHMCS design when making a purchase or using the interface after purchase.

    There are several available like HostBill, Blesta, Clientexe, BoxBilling etc. which mainly supports Linux platform. They support common features like Invoice & Payments, Product Provisioning, Client Area, Marketing etc. and 2 of them are Open Source namely BoxBilling and Blesta.
    While there some alternatives that supports Windows like Blesta, Clientexec, Atomia etc. From my recommendation its better to opt for the billing script which is easy to implement and provides maximum compatibility.

    I could have swore I responded to this post last week. Are my posts being removed?

    Anyway, to clarify Blesta is almost entirely open, only 3 files are encoded for license protection and Blesta works on Linux and Windows. You may have mixed us up with those other guys.

    WHMCS is one of the most popular choice for billing platform. Although there are lots of options out there but the completeness that you can get in WHMCS is just so hard to pass. Blesta is the next best option for me followed by Billmanager.

    I would recommend to try 30 days free Blesta and pay only one time charge for a lifetime license, it is equal to whmcs.

    It is actually both, but there is a paid version with more products and staff allowed.

    I am not one to support a monopoly, but WHMCS is the only pre-existing web hosting billing solution available in it's class. There is simply not another product that competes at the same level. Considering how inexpensive it is for what you get, it is a good deal.

    cant afford whmcs go with a reseller plan from host 9 or something they give out free whmcs license along with package you better off going that way. I personally wouldnt trust free software for private data such as your clients information.

    I don’t agree with this statement, in regards to BoxBilling, because BoxBilling has being developed by a web hosting provider in the United Kingdom. Where as most other systems are developed in Non-English countries by completely unheard of brands.

    I use ISPConfig and have been pretty happy with it. The basic modules are free, and there's the option to add on a billing module for a fee.

    ISPConfig also has a decent (although no well documented) API so you can plug an ordering page into it.
