Need Help Integrating

    Hello all,

    I recently purchased a dedicated server and the WHM license.

    I am looking to either hire someone to integrate WHM with my site, or be pointed in the right direction of some resources/tutorials that will guide me through the process.

    I purchased a webhosting template and am able to get around in my WHM dashboard without too many problems.

    I have created my hosting packages for the most part, but may take it a step further and create more to also sell reseller hosting.

    What I am having trouble with is integrating my site template with my WHM account.

    To be honest, I really don't even know where to start. I would like to automate the entire process so that my customers can purchase their hosting accounts directly from my website and get their cpanel instantly as opposed to the way that I am doing it now which is manually creating cpanels and then having to provide the customer with the credentials.

    Can anyone please help?

    Also, how do I handle the domain names?

    I don't have a domain reseller account, don't know where to get one.

    I am not planning on being a major player in the hosting industry. I run a membership site already which offers digital products and a lot of turnkey sites. Therefore, I get a lot of customers that need hosting accounts and end up buying from me. Outside the scope of that, I'm not too concerned with trying to compete with other hosting providers.

    Any help is greatly appreciated,

    Thanks,
    Pat

    Hello :)

    Have you considered using a third-party billing application such as WHMCS to help automate the sign-up process for your customers? More information is available at:

    Thank you.

    I have not. I wasn't aware of any third part billing apps.

    Thanks

    Thank you very much for your reply.
    Actually, I spent all day researching and am now squared away.
    I was completely clueless, but I ended up finding some good info. I was able to find out how to access my WHMCS license today and got it installed.
    Also registered a free domain reseller account with enom.
    I found some great templates that are reasonably priced and install configuration and integration services.
    Although, I may try to do this myself as I was able to find some tutorials.
    I do have another question though. I didn't really have time to look into this one yet, but what would you recommend as far as a domain reseller.

    Enom or reseller club?

    I glanced at the cost of domains but don't know if that should be my determining factor on which one to go with.

    Any advice? Is there anything I should know before proceeding with either one of them?

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    You will likely receive more feedback to this type of question on a website such as WebHostingTalk. I searched for "Enom vs Reseller Club" on Google and a few results from the WebHostingTalk forums showed up.

    Thank you.
