Hey guys, we're looking to launch an ftp hosting service and are looking for a Windows CP with the following features:
-- Manages Windows servers, if Linux also it's a plus but Windows is required.
-- Recurring Paypal billing. Other billing options are nice extras to have.
-- Administers multiple servers through one CP interface.
-- Non-steep learning curve, CP solution must be simple and stable.
-- Low initial investment. Either cheap purchase or low monthly rental necessary.
-- Vibrant support and community.
-- Preferably has a nice built-in support ticket system.
-- In case it helps, we won't be offering email or dynamic webpage hosting services, only ftp hosting along with http access to hosted files.
Launch date is approacing soon so any help you can provide would be much appreciated...Thank you!
Dotnetpanel combined with WHMCS is a great combo. DNP has its own billing but its pretty basic. No ticket support either so WHMCS is the perfect compliment and WHMCS supports DNP. Great support and low startup costs. Also continually adding new features. Full Windows 2008 support, Exchange, Blackberry, MS Dynamics, Sharepoint etc etc.
Ultima_VPS, thanks for the reply. We were considering using Hosting Controller, do you know how WHMCS+DNP compares to HC? At first glance it seems that WHMCS+DNP is a more complex solution but maybe there's a definitive advantage going that route... You don't happen to have a link to the docs for installing WHMCS on Windows + DNP integration do you?
