    Automating CPANEL/WHM ... how?

    Well... I'll get a Cpanel/WHM server ...
    and I want to know how much I can automate everything.
    I've reading threads about phpmanager, modernbill and others...
    And I want to explicity ask somethings ...

    1) I need something that let the user signup, transfer or register a domain (maybe... use a subdomain possible?).
    2) Use a credit card OR paypal for the order, and in case of credit card, check the order and CREATE the account.
    3) Notify me and the RESELLER that the account is setup and/or it need to be "accepted" ... like with a click.

    So... I want to be sleeping ... and receive orders. I know this is possible. It have to be!
    Does modernbill support cpanel resellers or something ?
    50% or more of my business will be based on resellers ... so I need this.
    Is there any way of automate Paypal payments ? (I mean, acept payment and setup account? ... just asking... )

    I've heard that modernbill is the best to go ... (but that's complicated .... haha... I really dont worry about this if it's funcional ... you know.)

    In the begining I will be using some 3rd party CC ... so, I need one that support some of this (like 2Ch.Out).

    If you are using CPANEL/WHM please reply with your comments/suggestions/experience.

    Thanks all you people!

    Automate

    Modernbill does not currently support this. PhpManager does.

    However, I personally advise against automatic account creation. Recommend using the system, but not activating that feature. Your choice, however.

    MB does not support what?

    does not create the account automatically you say ?
    (If it's the case ... does it have an "accept client" or something to easy add it to WHM ? ... or does I need to add the client manually??)

    Thanks

    Carlos... automating a business is always something good, but in this case, if you automate everything inlcuding the account creation then you'll be open to fraudulent accounts. From your post, I gathered the fact that you'll be offering reseller accounts, if that's right, then you each account would bge reasonably big I guess, above $20/month? If I'm right, then it'll be worth to just let the users signup and then activate each account manually when you wake up.

    What you want done is very possible, just a little programming needs to be done. ModernBill is not yet integrated with CPanel yet, it is only able to take payment from certain credit card processors such as WorldPay and PayPal.

    So the main point here to think about is, so you want the many fraudlent accounts that you're bound to get if you offer an automated service.

    Carlos, don't do it.. automated account setups will lead to big problems - I'd advise the same, manually set up your accounts, it is the safest way of controlling who gets onto that server that you use to bring the bread and butter to the table....

    Well... okey .... so, I will not setup account automatically....

    but... what program will do the other things ?
    and integrate with cpanel ?

    you say phpmanager (with automatic acc. disabled) will be okey?

    dunno tell me... I'm really new to this....
    I'm new to control panels too ... but after about 2 months of research and local installs ... I finally know that CPANEL rules

    and this phpmanager is cheap... ... does it do the things okey?
    what CAN'T you do with phpmanager ? anyone?

    Thanks!
