    MASSIVE cPanel price increases

    Thank you for your development work. Apart from this please consider an option to keep track of the expenses/cost of the server. For example, now we can set a monthly cost in the server setup page which then used in the "Income by Server" Report page. What I am requesting will be similar to this but will have at least two fields and will save the cost for each month: 1. Fixed monthly cost / basic hardware cost 2. Variable monthly cost/software license cost. Both values will be stored in the database for each month to be used in the "Income by Server" Report page. Instead of adding these two fields in the server set up page, you can also add these fields in a completely new section of WHMCS. 1. The fixed monthly cost will be used to enter the basic hardware/fixed monthly cost for the server. In case the server was replaced by another (eg. due to a hardware upgrade), the cost might get changed, too. This is why storing the value for all months is necessary. 2. Variable monthly cost / software license cost is subject to change each month depending on the number of cPanel accounts /other software licenses on the server. It will also be stored into the database for all months to be used in calculations in the "Income by Server" Report page. Of course, tracking and billing reseller hosting accounts is needed as badly as tracking and billing servers/VPSes. You should give this the same priority as counting cPanel licenses on a server. There is a sheer number of providers that offer reseller hosting and all will be benefiting from this. A flat fee + per account fee should cover many grounds at once. Providers that offer fixed tiers of the number of cPanel accounts with their reseller hosting packages will be able to utilize it, as well as providers who offer a variable tier of cPanel accounts (eg. who offer additional cPanel accounts as a paid addon / config option) will be able to utilize the option. Please consider the options for the server cost features mentioned above.

    MASSIVE cPanel price increases

    This is a sad day for the hosting industry. cPanel has a monopoly in the industry and they are squeezing out whatever they can. This is not a price hike, it's holding us hostage.
  3. Hi brian! I am glad that you replied. It only shows how many times a coupon is used. I want to see a list of products/clients/order that used the coupons. Is it possible in any way? So no option from admin area. Could you suggest any solution? How come WHMCS became this big and not have these functions??
  4. Thank you for responding. I have already received what I needed. Thanks a lot to @brian! and @steven99 for helping me out.
  5. Hi, Is there any way to search for products/services/clients based on coupon codes they used or the configurable options? For example, let's say you offered two discount coupons (promo codes) and a few clients ordered your services using those coupon codes. Now, you want to see how many clients/services used coupon1 and how many used coupon2. Is there a way to search this? Similarly, say you offer a service that has configurable options - a dropdown with 4 values to choose from. Is there any way to search for clients/services based on the value/name of the configurable option? Any suggestion/help would be appreciated.

    Hello

    Though I am a bit late to introduce myself, better late than never. I am Mechanic, learning PHP, and smarty. While working on a WHMCS issue, I needed help. And here I am. And I am amazed at the help I am getting. Tahnk you all and long live this community.
  8. Thank you for responding. I am currently talking to someone regarding this. Will contact you if things do not work out.
  9. Well, what you said still went over my head. But thank you for showing where to start. I'll try it once I finish my conversation with you 🙂
  10. Hi there, Here is the scenario. I have two groups of products - one group is hidden. Both groups have the exact name, price, configurable options, and automatic provisioning. Only the servers are different. The user selects a configuration on the product configure page. Is there a way to change the product to one from the hidden group, based on the configurable option, so that the one from the hidden group is provisioned after payment? My goal is to automatically provision a product from the hidden group to provision it on a different server, so the product can be changed on the view cart, checkout or somewhere before adding the order information into the DB. Can this be done? If so, how much it might cost me? Please take into consideration that I am looking for a simple solution, admin controls are not needed and I want it to cost me as little as I can get away with. 🙂 Regards, Mechanic
  11. Thanks a lot for the heads up. I have experience with basic hooks like changing menu items or sidebars. Never used a class or API call. Would it be possible to guide me a bit more about how to use the API call/class?

My goal is to automatically provision a product from the hidden group, so the product can be changed on the view cart, checkout or somewhere before adding the order information into the DB. I have very basic experience with PHP, Smarty, and Hooks but don't know enough regarding WHMCS. I would appreciate any help or at least guidance on where to look at.
