does anyone know where i can get a free script to automatically set up a hosting account right after they pay for it. i use whm it would be nice and make the clients alot more comfertable with my hosting.:p it would be greatly appreciated.
Personally, I think they deserve to be paid. It's a solid script. First time I used phpCoin it only worked with WHM/Cpanel and did a great job. I think there's a Plesk mod available now.
If you don't mind a reasonable license fee, Whois.Cart() deserves consideration. This script works with several host APIs and domain registrar APIs, and it's a full-blown billing system. It's more sophisticated than phpCoin but will probably require more of your attention. Setting it up is easy, skinning it for your site is where you'll likely spend most of your time. http://whoiscart.net
If I read the details correctly, I think phpCoin's 10 site limit applies to new or future releases, but if you go with previous releases there's no limit and it's remains free. This sounds like your best option (assuming you use WHM). You can always go to the licensed release or a different app when you're ready to spend. Most hosting automation apps will have an import script for your database, etc.
It looks as though phpCoin licenses will require annual renewal where as Whois.Cart() is a one time charge per domain. As long as you don't switch domains there are no renewal fees. Visit their site and look at the comparison chart with other apps.
Some hosts offer ClientExec for resellers but I guess that's for billing only. You might check into reseller hosting that includes ModernBill, which I believe gives you host account signup + billing, I'm not certain about that. My preference and best recommendation is Whois.Cart() for the long haul.
