    Thumbs down A Host thast uses an illegal version of WHMCS

    I have found many hosts that use an illegal version of WHMCS. One of which is spashes.com/client

    Their prices are very affordable but then, seeing as they have an illegal version of whmcs, it turned me off.

    They are just a reseller of rewindhost.com, I assume. Their servers are located in the USA so I don't understand why their tos stated that warez linking and nulled scripts are allowed.

    Shared Hosting:
    Prohibited Content -
    Warez Files Hosting, Torrents, High Resource Eating Scripts like Rapidleech, Any kind of Child Pornography, IRC.
    Allowed Content -
    Warez Linking, Torrent Linking, Nulled Scripts, Adult/18+

    Hi

    A DMCA notice has been sent and we are awaiting a response from the both data centers. Unfortunately this can take some time to get taken down.

    Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

    Regards,

    Just an insult to people like me who pay 150 + /mo for a reseller account and about 3 licenses for my own Companies, they should be shot!

    This is quite common and it will not be eradicated anytime soon

    It might be an insult, though, when they are caught out it can hurt their reputation which works hand in hand.

    If you are sure that any web hosting provider uses an illegal software you should not go with them and I believe you should post web hosts' names in WHT so the community would put pressure on them.

    OK guys, be honest ... how many of you put your domain in at http://www.whmcs.com/members/verifydomain.php to make sure WHMCS had you listed as legal?

    I am now 100% confident that tool is 100% accurate!

    you cannot trust a company that is using a cracked whmcs. It is common sense to discard this provider.

    There will always be people that try and cheat the system, nothing new there. There attempts usually do not last long and end up getting caught.

    Yeah I agree a lot of people with NULLs but nothing you can do but report it if you can but they will always get them regardless

    Maybe WHMCS can provide a Firefox plugin. It shouldn't be that hard for a small script to detect WHMCS and check the verification server.

    Any hosting company which uses nulled WHMCS is a thief. Who in their right mind would want to conduct business with a low life thief? Not me. No thanks.

    What if some hosts that use nulled scripts, but still have a legit licenses?

    If a company has a legit WHMCS license, there is no reason for them to be using a nulled script.

    True that, probably because they don't have to wait to reactivate the licenses when they move the name of the directory where WHMCS is located, and they will have to reset the licenses. Or when they get a dedicated IP.

    It only takes 2 minutes to reset the license and activate it in the new location or under the new ip. So that is no reason for justification.

    Really? I've always had to contact support for them to reset it for me.

    Is there an option in WHMCS to do it yourself?

    Yes in the client area you can reset the license and then when you relogin to the admin area it will set the ip and location.

    Yep, you can reset it within the client area. I was concerned because I recently changed hosts, tried out an included version of WHMCS and then moved to a VPS and I'm leasing the program now. But it looks like the function within the client area works ....

    Equally stupid - who knows if the nuller inserted a few fun things inside, like being able to pull your whole client db, etc

    If you can't afford $15/month for your Billing system which holds all your client(s) sensitive information then how would your client's be so sure you'd pay for server bills, It's not very bright.

    As you are running a "reseller license" I do not think you have the privilege to reset it?

    If a host can not pay for a whmcs license, it surely cant provide good support or servers and will run away for sure. :p

    If their license is direct from WHMCS, can be done in their WHMCS client area. If their license is from a reseller, they would have to go through the reseller; either contact them or do it in the reseller's control panel, if they offer that type of self-service functionality to their clients that is.

    I am stating his debug information would show he's using a reseller license so that option I would believe would come under the reseller to renew the license and would not allow him the privilege to do so

    However, I concur with what you are saying.

    the best suggestion is to stay away from such hosts,just think if they can't afford a licensed version of whmcs,what quality of hosting would they provide?and would they last for longer than 2-3months?

    This is pretty low, especially considering that a ton of hosts offer it free with their services.

    Very Nice, how many more people are going to piss us off. Nulled software is a bad rep. Cant buy it, dont bother using it.

    Interesting, I was not aware of that. That should be spread around a bit to help weed out some questionable hosts.

    Why should they use nulled Scripts if they have a license? Hosting Providers using fake licenses or cracked Software should be avoided, as the risk that their services are closed down is high... Further it is not fair for the honest companies paying for the licenses.

    Ok fshagan,
    to be honest, I just knew the WHMCS can be fake. Always thought all are always genuine.. Hehe..
    Lucky when I checked mine, it was "authorized"

    Guess what! at first, I typed my domain name wrongly and the result was.... in red, I almost went crazy, until I double checked my spellings

    The cracked version may have a virus too or give sensitive information to hackers or WHMCS themselves.

    The whole point of a "Nulled" version is so it does not call back to WHMCS, if it was to do so where would be the point of having a nulled version of WHMCS?

    Good Point. People could do that if they wanted to but people wouldn't download it anymore if that was case. Same way with viruses or Malware in the script.

    The Hosting CEO's who use Nulled WHMCS are only noobs who just think they will win money

    Otherwise if someone purchase a WHCMS this mean he is intend to work hard for his company and he can be a little bit Trustfull
