Cloud Hosting with HostBill

Do you offer simple Cpanel hosting, and do your customers keep bombarding you with questions about terms beginning with “CLOUD”?
– Cloud Servers
– Cloud Storage
– Cloud Hosting
– Cloud Services

Why not compete with the big hosting providers?
With OnAPP + HostBill you have cloud technology ready to go!

You can see an example of integration here:

The new HostBill contains the powerful OnAPP module, which will allow you to resell your Cloud and enable your clients to manage their own VPS servers. Thereʼs only a few days to wait until the new HostBill arrives!

What can be done in 40 minutes – Clients Online – new HostBill addon!

It’s late here, the release date is tomorrow, and weʼre doing some final polishing on the next version of HostBill. Iʼve decided to check what can be done with the HostBill add-ons system in just 40 minutes. The results of my work will be added into the upcoming release. Clients Online is a really simple yet handy add-on that will show you which of your clients are currently logged-in. It integrates itself into the admin homepage, so you will have at-a glance information about your clients’ activity.

I canʼt wait for the new version and your feedback on it!

Next version preview pt.3 – Dedicated Server Manager

It’s a matter of single days now until the next version of HostBill is released. With this version we will introduce an add-on especially for hosting company owners. If you own or resell a few dedicated servers spread across different collocations, you probably know the pain of managing contacts for them, or going through dozens of emails to find login details or hardware specifications. Well, worry no more, as now you can have all that information in one place – in HostBill!

With our add-on you’ll be able to manage collocations where you host your servers, contacts to them, and keep information about racks, servers, switches, labels etc. Just take a look at the screenshots:

Next version preview pt.2 – CSV Export addon

The next version is coming up, and as I’ve just finished developing this i thought I’d share a screenshot of the new add-on that will be included with the new HostBill (1.4.6). CSV Exporter is a simple tool for everyone who wants to do accounting outside HostBill and who needs a set of data exported from it. Youʼll be able to export invoices, transactions, accounts, domains and client details to be used in any program that is compatible with CSV format.

HostBill development Kit pt.1 – Payment Gateways

Hello – we’re recently getting lot of demanding on documentation – how to create custom gateways for HostBill. We try to answer every request for gateways/hosting control panels/ domain registrars and add such modules into HostBill, however we also want to give such possibility to other developers.

Here:  http://wiki.hostbillapp.com/index.php/Devkit_Gateways you can grab latest documentation and examples on: How to create custom payment gateway for HostBill (this includes Credit Card processors)

Remember our all good friend Steve Balmer? WebDevelopers – start developing gateways! 😀

This is just a begining – we’re preparing devkits for hosting modules, domain modules and addon modules for HostBill, so stay tuned for that!

Eyecandy from next version

Hello all HostBill users! We’re working hard on record-speed release, and I’ve got a little sneak-preview of one of features. It is console for our vps.net module (statistics were already introduced on their forum).  I’ve just finished implementing it, therefore it might need some styling. Dont forget to leave comment below, letting us know what you think and what else needs to be done.
