New HostBill release as on every Monday brings in new set of features! This week: flavor billing improvements; new features for Password Manager, smart search, statistics and more!
Flavor billing improvements
One of multiple billing models available in HostBill is flavor billing, which allows to create pre-defined VM sizes (flavors) and set hourly price for each of them. With the newest release we’ve added support for VM power on/off pricing for Cloudstack, Openstack, Amazon EC2 and OnApp3 modules. This means that in product configuration you can enable the option to bill only for the VMs that are actually on. In our Flavor Manager we’ve also added the option to setup flavor pricing for powered down servers.
In the recent release we’ve added Bancontact payment method for Buckaroo payment gateway. This week we’re adding Bunq to the list of available banks in iDEAL Buckaroo. iDEAL is the most used payment method in the Netherlands, which processes payments via e-banking environment. Buckaroo ensures smooth and secure communication between the systems of the bank, the consumer and the merchant.
In HostBill admin area we’ve made a little improvement to our Smart search, which can now search through credit notes with custom numeration format.
A little change was introduced to HostBill Statistics. Now, the support tickets “Replies by staff” statistics shows only staff members who responded to the tickets.
Our Password Manager module was also equipped with a new feature: admin with password edit privilege can now change password ACL.
