    Nice updates! Looks great!

    Ubersmith is alright, but really isn't affordable for everyone, nor is its functionality necessary for everyone.

    Utilizing both CE and WHMCS been pretty impressed with the advances of both as of late.

    It's quite affordable actually, it starts at $129.95/month now. If someone can't afford that then they shouldn't run a business.

    They've made it a more well rounded product, but it's definitely targeted towards companies that have their own equipment no doubt.

    The price is very affordable now since they've redone their pricing structure, I don't think paying $129.95/month for a billing solution is a bad deal.

    Again, keeping in mind whether or not ubersmiths featureset is needed for you or not....

    Why would anyone pay $129.95 when paying $18.95 covers all the bases? You're point is well taken if you need all those features, but for say someone in the business of selling banners there really is no need for software like this.

    You'd be insane to pay $129.95 if you were selling banners, I was more talking towards the shared, vps, dedi, and colo companies. There's no debating, if any company does any decent amount of cash($1M+) they're not going to use WHMCS. I can't think of any company, but burstnet, that uses WHMCS for billing when they'r ebig.

    They don't even list the pricing anymore. How would I know if they are going to charge me $129.95/month or $2,000/month for the software?

    v4.5 looks to be another great release from Matt and the WHMCS team. Keep up the great work guys!

    Heck, I'm all for WHMCS rasing their product pricing if it will ensure they don't turn into what ModernBill turned into

    P.S. I would take WHMCS + internal development of complementary systems over Ubersmith any day.

    If you can't afford that much, you shouldn't run a business. Seriously.

    You can get reseller hosting with WHMCS for around $20/month & web hosting for businesses for around $5 to $10 a month. Should they be not running a business then?

    Ubersmith and WHMCS are targeted at completely different audiences and designed mainly for completely different roles. There is virtually no comparison.

    The $100 spent between WHMCS and Ubersmith could be better spent elsewhere, in my opinion. Advertising, licenses for addons, etc.

    Why would anyone want Ubersmith? Its interface is awful, it doesn't integrate with any of the commonly used control panels, it costs a bomb, it's difficult to migrate to, it doesn't come with order forms, they don't offer owned licences so you're locked in, etc etc. WHMCS kicks ass.

    I found Ubersmith to be pretty inadequate for us at the time we were talking to them. They were going to charge $450/mo plus charge a $2500 setup fee for the instance plus another $1000 to integrate SolusVM.

    WHMCS is the clear winner. Not only on pricing, but features and ease of navigation.

    There are some big companies using ubersmith. I don't care for it personally, but it must work for some people. I agree WHMCS is great, but I guess to one their own.

    Well, and honestly, and as its been stated on this thread already, WHMCS and Ubersmith are in two different markets. All data centers that we have equipment with use Ubersmith.

    Seriously? Ubersmith runs $130/month? That's not "affordable" by any means.

    As far as the "ubersmith is better" remarks? Sorry, not buying it. HOW long did it take those idiots to put in php5 support? Yeah, sorry, they can't claim "we're not going to support this" when it's their primary language. I have to create my own order forms? Yeah, think again.

    Ubersmith is utter trash. There is absolutely NO WAY the dev team can compete with the small business that is WHMCS, though they'll charge 10x more a month just to use it.

    <edit>
    Back on topic, this actually looks pretty decent for WHMCS. I'm impressed once again that Matt has come up with a very decent product in such a short time, and KEEPS updating it in a professional and timely manner. No way can ANY other billing client (including the horrible Ubersmith) say they actually update as much as WHMCS, OR put more into their product.

    I'm extremely excited about this new announcement. Speculating that it will enhance the already-powerful management portal. Bring it on, WHMCS!

    Ubersmith isn't designed for the small hosting compaies (no offence but the typical resellers you see on WHT).

    It's designed for the big players and data centers alike, you can tell that just by looking at the features they build in.

    To people of that size $130/month isn't even considered an expense, they spend more on coffee a month (a lot more )...

    For basic shared and reseller UberSmith probably isn't worth the extra cost. It really targets a whole different market.

    I think ubersmith is mostly aimed at "big datacenter providers such as colocation, dedicated servers, etc".

    Most of my colocation providers all use ubersmith.
    I do also believe there was a one time fee before they changed to monthly fee. It might've been a better price with the one time fee.

    I don't know why WHMCS doesn't charge more. There's nothing else even close that does what WHMCS does, they could easily charge $30-$45/month and double their profits.

    History is against that. Modernbill used to be the defacto solution for web hosts for years. A disastrous V5 launch, price hikes, and eventual acquisition by Parallels gave WHMCS the opportunity it needed to pick up everyone looking for a new solution.

    There is plenty of competition to WHMCS around, and if they did decide to raise prices further, I think it would yet again leave the market open for a new, cheaper competitor to emerge dominant.
