WHMCS - Move away

long time lurker....

I have a reseller hosting package with HostGator since 3 years. Its decent. However, many of my clients have moved away. Most of the remaining accounts are for friends/ family. Just a handful of paying clients are remaining.

HostGator included a WHMCS license with its reseller package. So, I was using that to keep a track of all the accounts.

I do not want to continue with HostGator any more. I am looking for an alternative to WHMCS (free if possible) which can import WHMCS data and allow me to continue the basic functionalities.

Thanks!

  • A good alternative would be probably Blesta/Clientexec honestly. I'm sure @LicenseCart would give you a good price on the Blesta license.

    Is there any reason you're wanting to move from WHMCS too? There's plenty of other providers out there who include WHMCS in their reseller packages.

    if I can keep WHMCS it will be great. I just have a handful sites now and am not sure if I really need to use a paid billing solution like WHMCS.

    Not sure if any shared hosting providers include WHMCS...

    Since its very few clients, I am not sure if I want to have an additional burden of a paid software...

  • How much does whmcs actually cost in those low volume situations? Just wondering.

    I see BillManager is free up to 50 clients but I don't know anything about it. At my old place we wrote our own and it wasn't that complex.

    Minimum I see is for 250 clients on WHMCS. I dont have that many and seems like an overkill. Just a few domain registrations, a few hosting renewals. thats all.

  • If it's just a handful I'd probably do it with no automation beyond an appointment calendar with reminders, and a text file or spreadsheet to track who has what.

    There might also be some Drupal modules for this type of thing. They exist for almost everything.

  • You're better off working a bit more to get some clients.

    I've used Blesta and it was utter shit compared to WHMCS.

    It's not about a number of Clients but about the functionality you need.

    I wonder if just using PayPal invoices and subscriptions might be enough for you then.
