How can we successfully resell game servers?


Dear WHT,

My team and I are interested in reselling game servers through our hosting company, and I was hoping someone could shed some light as to how to start? We've decided to go with GameCP as our game server management control panel, but what we can't figure out is how to manage the billing aspect(s).

Does anyone know of any good software that will allow us to easily sell game servers, and allow the client to select what type of game, how many slots, etc.. and then invoice them?

If need be, we can code a custom order form, but we were hoping that wasn't necessary.

Thanks,
Chris`

You can use WHMCS, ClientExec, Modernbill and I think there is a few more. A simple google search will come up with tons of pages of websites containing what you are in search of.

I personally think WHMCS would be your best choice. It also has direct compatibility with the TCAdmin control panel along with many other modules and APIs.

Pretty much sums it up but wouldn't use anything besides those 3.

GameCP isnt recommended.

I would suggest Gamecreate or cPanel's Game Management.

WHMCS if the best way to go though

Depending on how many servers your going to sell, and if you need to keep track of hardware, IP address, Log on information I would recommend Ubersmith. I have messed with WHMCS and it isn't bad but for a few more bucks you can get Ubersmith and there support is the best i have seen. They helped me setup everything when i wasn't even purchasing the DE version.
