Introduction: WHMCS is a powerful billing and automation platform that can streamline the management of your reseller hosting business with DomainIndia.com. This comprehensive guide will walk you through configuring and managing WHMCS for your cPanel/WHM reseller hosting account, helping you provide a seamless experience for your clients.

  1. Obtain a WHMCS License: To use WHMCS, you'll need a valid license. You can purchase a license directly from WHMCS or through DomainIndia.com if they offer it as an add-on service. Once you have a license, download the latest version of WHMCS from the official website.

  2. Install WHMCS: Upload the WHMCS installation files to a directory on your hosting account, either in a subdomain or a subdirectory. Create a MySQL database and user for WHMCS, and then run the installation script by accessing the uploaded directory through your web browser. Follow the prompts to complete the installation, making sure to delete the installation folder once the process is finished.

  3. Configure General Settings: Log in to the WHMCS admin area and navigate to Setup > General Settings. Configure your company information, localization settings, and other preferences. Save your changes once you've completed the configuration.

  4. Set Up Payment Gateways: To accept payments from your clients, go to Setup > Payments > Payment Gateways. Choose the payment gateways you want to use, such as PayPal or Stripe, and configure the necessary API credentials and settings.

  5. Integrate cPanel/WHM with WHMCS: To automate account provisioning and management, you need to link WHMCS with your cPanel/WHM reseller account. Navigate to Setup > Products/Services > Servers, and click on 'Add New Server'. Fill in the server details, including the hostname, IP address, and your WHM login credentials. Choose 'cPanel' as the server type and ensure the 'Secure' option is selected if you're using SSL.

Navigate to Setup > Products/Services > Products/Services, and click on 'Create a New Group' to organize your products. Then, click on 'Create a New Product' to set up individual hosting plans. Make sure to select the appropriate cPanel/WHM package when configuring the product module settings.

Then, navigate to Setup > Products/Services > Domain Pricing to set up your domain pricing and TLD offerings.

  8. Configure Support and Ticketing: WHMCS includes a built-in support ticket system. To set it up, go to Setup > Support > Support Departments and create departments for handling support requests. Configure email piping if you want to convert emails into support tickets automatically. Ensure that your support staff has access to the relevant departments in their WHMCS user accounts.
