    What Billing software for Cpanel And WHM?

    Hi,

    I currently have WHM and Cpanel.
    But What Billing software is the best for that?
    + Does anyone know what billing software Bluehost uses?

    I Saw that WHMCS is available. And ClientExec or something.
    Which one is the best for it?

    Regards,

    Marcel Doornbos

    Both are good. It depends upon your needs and cost.

    I have used both and prefer WHMCS, however different people have different needs. Try both, look at demo's, features and reviews and make your own decision. At the end of the day you will be the one using it.

    ClientExec never worked correctly for me as I always had to go in and adjust customer invoice dates. Specifically, the PayPal subscriptions were never recorded properly. Since then I've switched to WHMCS and I am much happier. I haven't had one issue so far )

    We use WHMCS, basically due to its easy setup without a manual, everything seems straight forward, everything you need to set up does not have any cryptic names.

    You simply install, set up your packages etc, link them and set up your payment gateways.

    Have had many many payments and clients without any recourse or payment issues. It does what it says on the tin... without complications.

    Some other systems we have used (although i admit they may not have been set up correctly) have not been so responsive.

    Hope this helps

    Well Can WHMCS be customized completely? Because i don't like the way that a client first needs to register an account and after that he can go and buy hosting or whatever.. (that's what i heard WHMCS does)

    What i like about The System Bluehost and Hostmonster use is that when you order a package, You first get the option of choosing to register a new domain or to transfer a new domain, After that you get to the Information Fields, Where you need to put your billing info and What hosting package you want, How long, What payment method.(all in 1 Page) And after that it's just pay it and you get an e-mail with all the login info for the Cpanel. And if you want to renew your account you can do that in your Control panel. So that's a System i Really like.

    So if anyone knows what system that is, Please contact me

    What is the best for it is going to be what is best for your business. Personally, I'll add that vote for WHMCS myself.

    Ok I'm going to be the oddball and dodge the eggs/tomatoes/servers being thrown at my head and say you should check out Modernbill 4 don't check out 5 unless you have some time on your hands or want someone else to set it up for you. Granted it's not to bad if you have a couple days to play around with it. I do know that when I was using Clientexec I was never quite happy with it and changed to MB v4 so just my 2 cents.

    Well i Looked at much different Billing systems. And Sofar ClientExec comes best into my needs. I read before in this thread that most "not-good-configured" installations of ClientExec are because they didn't install it on the right way. So that's why I'm going to order the Professional Installation from it too. So than it will be configured at the right way, and it will work correctly. So i think i'm going to use ClientExec and fully Customize it to the Template (Which still has to be made ) So that's why i choose clientexec. And if it doesn't work as i want or have issues. Than i just will get WHMCS or something All thank you for the Reply's

    We switched to WHMCS from WHMAutoPilot last year and have an owned license of ModernBill (never used it). The WHMCS is by far the best. We have modified WHMCS to our needs (little php programming). Their customer support is fast and helpful

    Yeah ok, But i think it would cost alot more when i want it to be customized to my needs, Since i don't know PHP coding

    Indeed it would, but you would be paying less for some small changes and new features here and there compared to paying someone to make you a script from scratch. Also, for WHMCS I think LicensePal has an integration service where they change the template of WHMCS so that it fits well with your site for about 20$.

    I recommend WHMCS and I do currently use it, it is easy to configure to your needs and to integrate it into your website.

    If you use whmcs and have a link directly to the product from your page, you don't have to register first. It asks you if you want to register or transfer a domain.

    We have used AWBS and couldn't be any happier. I was amazed at the features before I even got it setup and I am still quite amazed with it.

    o so you can Customize WHMCS so it gets to the Order page directly.
    And customize looks and other things too?
    Because if That is true i will Choose WHMCS. Because from all comments above like 75% (global) Chooses for WHMCS

    The good billing program that I've used are WHMCS, AWBS and ModernBill, but at last I've stick with WHMCS.
    ClientExec is a little too simple for me. I love the client area type of system that WHMCS used.

    1. Yes
    2. Yes

    You can check it out and even try out the trial version at www.whmcs.com. They have a forum there as well.

    That sure is a lot of +1s for WHMCS! I'm currently looking to bail out on MB (ugh!) and although I'm interested in WHMCS, I also run a separate domain site. How is WHMCS in dealing with enom domain management?

    I'm looking at AWBS, which appears best geared toward domain management needs, but haven't heard much about AWBS. Any comparison?

    whmcs is fully integrated with enom. I think it's the most developed api on whmcs.

    Thanks - have you used AWBS? I'm hoping to get a comparison on which has tighter and more thorough enom integration - which is nicest and most flexible for the end user. Thanks.
