In this blog post, we will learn how to connect WHM to your WHMCS.
Let’s first have a look at what is WHM & WHMCS!
What is WHM?
This is an administrative control tool also known as Web Host Manager. It enables the user to handle the back end of numerous cPanel accounts.
You can manage individual accounts and establish server-side restrictions using WHM.
What is WHMCS?
The abbreviation WHMCS means Web Host Manager Complete Solution.
This is so because Web Host Manager was used to build WHMCS as a control panel that enabled the automated installation of cPanel web hosting accounts.
What is WHMCS Used for?
A web hosting client administration panel with all the bells and whistles is called WHMCS. Its main objective is to give web hosting companies a shopping cart system that they can incorporate into their websites so that customers can buy web hosting services.
WHMCS interacts with a wide range of web hosting servers and related programs, unlike a standard shopping cart.
Thus, when a customer buys a service from your website, WHMCS will take payment, establish a user account for the customer to control their service, and automatically provide the web hosting account on the hosting server.
By using this method, web hosting companies can avoid doing hours of tedious manual work and greatly simplify the onboarding of new clients.
Now that you know what is WHM & WHMCS and what are they used for, let’s see how to connect both.
