    When one becomes a reseller host, how do they make it so that when a person buys...

    ...their hosting online, their account is immediately activated? I am really curious about this, and would appreciate any help. Thanks.

    If you are using WHM combined with WHMCS you can surely do this.

    WHMCS and ClientExec have certain modules available for you to automate processes and account creation. I highly recommend WHMCS.

    Oh, okay. I didn't know it did that. Does it also allow you to integrate domain purchasing with hosting purchasing?

    Yes it does. I believe it also has modules for registrars like ResellerClub and Enom.

    ITs called "Billing System", Should get one. I think the best one is WHMcs With cPanel/WHM its supper good. They have a free 15-day trial at whmcs.com I believe.

    My vote has always went to WHMCS since it was first released. I've never been a big fan of ClientExec as I've always found it to be much slower and really, more of a hassle. WHMCS is simple, straight to the point and efficient.

    WHM + Any billing software which supports account creation via remote access key.

    Another vote for WHMCS, they just released a new version. WHMCS rocks, I've never used a different billing system, and I don't plan to switch.

    Hello,
    One other option is called cPCreator, although their site seems to be undergoing maintenance. http://www.cpcreator.net/ . Unlike ClientEcex or WHMCS it only works with cPanel/WHM Based Servers, but hey, it is free. It looks like WHMCS as well.

    One more fan here for WHMCS. You can use that for support purposes also along with billing.

    WHMCS offers a free enom account, good choice to go with WHMCS.

    With WHMCS everything is completely automated. The user orders and it automatically creates the account, username/password, etc, then send the user a confirmation with everything. It is definitely worth it, a lifetime license is a little over $300, and alot of resellers include it free.

    Automated setup with whmcs is what most hosts use. If setup properly it will instantly setup a new account for your client and send him the new activation emails.

    Rabitcake = many control panels will do what you are asking. Some integrate even more automated billing/creation tasks such as ssl, etc

    WHMCS is probably the most poular billing system used for hosts. We use it and it is excellent.
