    Hi, up until recently our company was stictly a web design firm. However, we have now started a new child company. This company we are going to become a web hosting provider. We have purchased 3 servers with over 200 GB of Space, and 1500 GB of Bandwidth. We have almost completed the site, and are now working on finding good billing/account creation software.
    We have found a few software companies that have very good hosting automation software. However, I thought I would ask if anyone knows a Good piece of software the will provide the billing/instant account creation. We would like for it to be written in PHP. It would have to have support for Plesk 7.0, and utilize LinkPoint for the payment processing.
    Any suggestions/comment will be VERY helpful. We would like to keep the cost of the script well under $100 if possible!

    Thanks in advance for any help!
    Best Regards,
    Brian Samson

    ModernBill supports Plesk and LinkPoint - http://www.modernbill.com/

    I don't recommend using instant account creation, you should manually screen orders for fraud before creating an account.

    While doing instant activations is not available yet, (although it can be done via API calls in the beta), Billmation does recurring invoicing, etc.. and is a good choice for a more customer centric approach than ModernBill.

    This is a 7 year old thread you just revived, but I recommend HostBillApp for hosting billing/activations, Modernbill is no longer available.

    Where about's are you using HostBill? We're using WHMCS at the moment however I've been looking at the competition - mainly to get costs down!

    Interestingly, they were removed from LicensePal recently which seems a little...strange.

    I just DIYed my whole design/hosting setup. Took me two days with VB.net.

    Mind you, I don't sell hosting to anyone unless I built the site. Best way to avoid any fraud issues is to control the site.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    Ahh cool. I only wish we could build one - unfortunately it'd take a good year due to all the stuff we need. On the plus side, we currently get free MaxMind fraud protection

    Nice.

    Again, my billing/hosting for new customers starts with design, which in turn starts with an upfront deposit. Nothing minimizes fraud like forcing people to pay for stuff upfront.
