What is WHMCS?

WHMCS is an abbreviation for Web Host Manager Complete Solution. This is because WHMCS began as a control panel that enabled the automatic provisioning of cPanel web hosting accounts using the Web Host Manager control panel.

WHMCS is a full-featured client administration panel for web hosting. Its principal goal is to give web hosting companies with a cart system that can be connected to their websites, allowing visitors to purchase web hosting services.

WHMCS integrates with a wide range of web hosting servers and related applications so that when a client purchases a service on your site, WHMCS will collect a payment, create a user account for the client to manage their service, and automatically provision the web hosting account on the hosting server. This technique saves web hosting companies hours of tedious labour and simplifies customer onboarding.

 

WHMCS includes all the tools required for customer creation and administration, including:

• Customer service
• Reports
• Billing management
• Order Management
• Domain Registration
• Fraud Management

 

WHMCS is used for more than just creating cPanel accounts. It may also be used to automate provisioning on the following systems:

• Accounts VPN
• Servers for video games
• Virtual Private Server Hosting
• Domains
• Email Addresses
