  1. One of the awesome features in WHMCS's support system is the ability to reply to and, if enabled, open support tickets through email. Tickets go to the correct department every time, and both WHMCS admins and your customers get to enjoy an easier support ticket experience. All of this is made possible through two similar features: email piping and email importing. Email Piping and Email ImportingIn WHMCS, email piping uses a system of email forwarders to direct, or "pipe," email sent to a...View the full blog post
  2. "Nulling" software creates a version of the targeted software that doesn't require a license in order to function. We often see WHMCS versions created in this way, and it's important to remember that these versions have been created illegally and aren't supported by WHMCS. While they may be tempting as a way to reduce business costs, they're accompanied by serious risks. It can hurt your reputation, reduce your business, and is generally a sign that you won't be successful long-term. Even if...View the full blog post
  3. When due dates fall during the month can make a big difference for your business and your customers. It could be due to an external factor, like a third-party vendor needing payment on a certain date. Maybe you're simplifying internal processes by reserving one day a month for handling billing issues. Maybe you're responding to a customer request. Whatever the reason, WHMCS includes two features to help you synchronize your invoices' due dates: prorata billing and prorata invoices. Prorata...View the full blog post
  4. Gathering information about how your customers interact with your website and complete their orders is integral to making your business decisions. This practice, called "ecommerce tracking," is a part of most modern commercial websites and can be expanded to include other data as well. Google Analytics is a free web analytics tool that over 50 million websites worldwide use to track and analyze website traffic. It allows you to track how people find your site, how they use it, and how they...View the full blog post

  6. Reliable and secure authentication is an important part of many third-party integrations with WHMCS. For example, if an application like a website already requires clients to log in to that system, you might want to make sure those clients don't have to log in again just to access the portions of the application that interact with WHMCS. Recently, we've made some changes to how you can handle that authentication, making it not only simpler to implement but also more secure. Since WHMCS 7.10,...View the full blog post

  9. In WHMCS 8.0, we modernized user and login management, allowing access to multiple client accounts through a single user account. It's a powerful solution that's comprehensive, flexible, and, most importantly, useful. Client accounts own products and services. Each account represents an individual, business, or other entity: whoever's the billable party. Users, representing the specific individuals involved, are associated with one or more of those accounts and can log in and manage them...View the full blog post

  18. If you're using WHMCS, the way it organizes and automates your daily operations is very important for you. One of the many WHMCS features that can help you with this is order statuses. Order statuses appear on every WHMCS order, regardless of the product(s) or service(s) being sold. They can help you keep track of each order's progress. Your staff can view them throughout the WHMCS Admin Area. Because of this, using order statuses intelligently and customizing them to suit your needs can be...View the full blog post

It can also make a big difference in how your business operates day-to-day. One important reason to keep your invoice settings up-to-date and in touch with your business? Your customers need to receive invoices in plenty of time to make their payments.

It's also useful anytime you write modules, themes, or other customizations for WHMCS. You'll be able to find any problems quickly, without the risk of your customers finding them...View the full blog post

  25. There are many scenarios in which an individual can have the need to operate and manage more than one customer account with a web hosting company. For example when an individual has services related to a business, and also desires to use services from the same company personally, or when an individual manages or works with multiple different businesses. Another common scenario is a web designer or web developer, who needs the ability to access and manage the websites of multiple customers. ...View the full blog post
