I could not hear anything about the software called The Hosting Tool before. But it cannot compare with WHMCS. WHMCS is one of the most advanced commercial hosting billing softwares. It has a lot of features and modules and updates regularly. But the other is simple, poor and free software.

I tried to install it on local machine with wamp, installation was very smooth with rich ajax features. Got some syntax error after the installation.
Will try to test it online, I guess it would be worth trying.
