WHMCS Reseller Hosting Module

WHMCS Reseller Hosting Module

As every great host knows, you can't stop there! We for many years have offered you the ability to sell domains through our domain reseller module, however, we have again gone a step further by introducing our new module for WHMCS called UKBSS Reseller.

As you know, your Hosting/Reseller Hosting account allows you to sell hosting accounts to your clients. As every great host knows, you can't stop there!

We for many years have offered you the ability to sell domains through our domain reseller module, however, we have again gone a step further by introducing our new module for WHMCS called UKBSS Reseller Hosting Pro.

Traditionally, selling additional products such as VPS servers or reseller hosting would require complex and expensive infrastructure - the goal behind the introduction of our Reseller module is to allow you to start selling those services without any upfront costs or ongoing overheads/risks (you got that right, no costs - just another perk of being a UKBSS.COM Reseller!)

Best of all, you get access to exclusive wholesale pricing and discounts on our entire range of services for the purpose of resale, with the ability to set your own pricing margins!

The UKBSS Reseller is essentially a plugin available for WHMCS, which allows you to sell our entire range of services in just a few clicks!

This means you can start selling:

  • Cloud VPS Servers (in Beta)
  • Elastic Cloud
  • Reseller Hosting
  • Shared Hosting
  • WordPress Hosting
  • Dedicated Servers (coming soon!)
  • Kubernetes & Containers (coming soon!)
  • Object Storage aka buckets (Coming soon!)
  • Backup-servers (Coming soon!)

The module is super easy to install, and whilst it was in beta, was being used by hundreds of resellers here so far, and we would love for you to get on board also!

Start expanding your hosting/dev business today! To get started, feel free to familiarise yourself with the documentation below.

Getting Started:

Request Access:

To access our new  reseller platform which allows you to sell our products at a discounted price, please raise a support ticket to allow our team to enable the module and reseller centre for your reseller account.

Once done, log into our client area and download the new module from  Reseller Area > Settings (as shown below)

Module Installation

Below you can find instructions for installation of the integration module on the reseller's WHMCS.

Please refer to section Integrations to learn how to generate an integration module for your resellers.

1. Extract and upload the integration module into the reseller's main WHMCS directory.

Once you have uploaded the integration module, you should find a new folder with this module in 'resellerWHMCS/modules/servers/' directory as presented below.
Important: The folder and module name as well as a description of the extracted integration module are customized by the provider and will be different than the one presented in the example below.

10. In the 'Details' tab of the product configuration, we highly recommend setting up your 'Welcome Email' template first.

Welcome emails are sent to the end-client once the product creation is completed and contain important details such as account/service credentials, server information, assigned IP addresses etc.
Before you choose or create your own product's 'Welcome Email' , please make sure which of the merge fields variables in the email template are currently supported by the product.
You can find more information about setting up email templates and using merge fields variables here.
