    Still, this is thing is so ahead of what WHMCS can do with SolusVM, I'm just shocked.

    NVM read that wrong

    All these can be done via whmcs as well. I don't see what is so great (besides that package testing method).

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

    Does WHMCS let you sell XXX ammount of resources to a customer, let them deploy unlimited servers with the XXX resources, and add more/change resources on the fly?

    ~ Jimmy VortexUnit. Who likes poptart.cats?
  • Also keep in mind that the WHMCS module is provided by SolusVM, when new features are added SolusVM updates their module at the same time. Imagine if SolusVM releases a new version that's not compatible with HostBill's module and you're forced to wait for them to update their module before getting a feature/security patch from SolusVM.

    UMMM yes. using configurable options. @Damian has proof. I have done the same as well.

  • I assume you'll have the same updates to it soon enough as well, KuJoe.

    I mean, you can't compete if you don't innovate.

    Yea, I thought somebody would mention this, but that's hard to use compared to Hostbill.

    I looked over Hostbill today, and it's so much more beautiful and easy to use than WHMCS.

    I'm thinking about coughing up for a lifetime license.

    Hostbill does monthly update. How about WHMCS and SolusVM? (It's a question because I really don't know how ofter WHMCS and SolusVM update/fix their software).

    Hostbill now has autoupdate/autopatch, I really love it because download and upload 30MB with a very slow connection is really pain :D

  • Sadly, after talking with HostBill sales, they won't budge on monthly licensing.

    If anybody does have a monthly license or a lifetime license they don't want, I'll be glad to buy it off you.

  • I wish they would allow for pricing on the cloud system? Its awesome but if I can't charge for it what use is it?

  • @StormVZ I had tested siteserving.com, they send me a license for hostbill. All works fine here.

    @fileMedia Hmm, they gave me a weird five digit number called the License ID. HostBill didn't take it :S

    Oh well, contact support.

  • You should get a normal hostbill license key. I´ve got one..hmm..

    I'd be worried about those licenses been within Hostbills terms, especially after seeing that they (Licensecube) were selling dodgy DA licenses.

    Just contacted Hostbill about them, hopefully they'll get back to me soon, as I am quite interested in getting a monthly license as well. :)

    When I'm done squatting on my HostBill Monthly License I'll probably give to someone, I was one of the lucky people that realized it had potential before they did the change to owned-only. I gotta say... the order pages are WAY sexier than WHMCS and it's way faster to use.

    http://overclockedhost.com Overclocked Host - XEN VPS starting at $6.99

  • Well...I've not used my owned HB license in about 6 months and today when I went to download it, it asked me to renew for another year as updates/support has expired :( Now whether to sell or pay $45 lol

  • I got my owned license nearly two years ago now when it was $159.95 :)

  • @LV_Matt well I bought it for a year (FIRST PAYMENT AMOUNT $79.95 USD) and it was upgraded to owned for free :P But if you want to upgrade to non branding it's $200 so kinda covers cost if people do that

    Has the whmcs import script started working?

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • @Taz_NinjaHawk said: Has the whmcs import script started working?

    They stopped developing it ages ago, but I think that they may have started it again.

  • LV_MattLV_Matt Member
    edited September 2012

    Yes they do have an import script now:

    Extract in main directory of your HostBill. Requires: - HostBill latest version - Whmsc 5.x

    Note: - This module imports only basic informations from whmcs, it does not import additional tables data (like for OnApp or SolusVM), if you'd like to have this data imported contact us. - This module currently do not import client passwords for hosting accounts.

    That limitation will not make any one happy if they really want to migrate to hostbill and if hostbill wants to take a bite out of WHMCs market share, they will have to make a seamless process. Just like IPB and Vbuletin has.

    Remember how whmcs became the big player during the modernbill downfall? Seamless migration and refugee discounts?

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • The reason why it cant be seamless is because of the tables the SolusVM and OnApp modules add, WHMCS never had seamless migration of 3rd party modules.

  • How much are the lucky monthly folks paying?

    The guys at SiteServ reissued me a new license, and it's working now.

    :D

    License to: LicenseCube Expires: 2012-10-12 Version: 3.9.0:3457

    I purchased it yesterday, so I'm guessing they have some kind of contract with Hostbill? Or else how did they get new licenses like this :S
