WHMCS and You

Do you wish there was an easy solution to create invoices, use recurring billing, provide support and otherwise deal with your hosted clients? There is – WHMCS. WHMCS is a fully templated, easily customizable, automated solution for hosting & domain management, support, billing, statistics and more.

whmcsWHMCS is something of a “one-stop shop” that will provide the interfacing between yourself and your hosted clients in a multifaceted way. Combine WHMCS with our Reseller plans (some even include it at a discounted rate or even free!) to get your very own web hosting company off the ground quickly. Let’s cover a bit of the many great features this suite brings to the table.


WHMCS allows you to send your clients high quality professional looking invoices. It also sends payment reminders, new invoices, quotes and more all in your own design. It’s also integrated with over 75 different payment gateways out of the box. WHMCS supports multiple gateways used concurrently, and integrated for fully automated payment processing, payment confirmations & refunds. Taking payments is now easier than ever, especially when paired with our free-setup merchant accounts!


From a ticket system with social integration to a complete network status system, WHMCS is all you need to offer support to your clients. It supports email piping to generate tickets from emails, attachments to transfer files to and from your clients, and even a pre-sales contact form to help seal the deal.
