Whmcs vs Hostbill

Have some stats?



There is nothing particularly special about WHMCS.

Most of big businesses in this industry use their own billing software. I don't think any of the providers I buy from use WHMCS. When I see it anywhere (I know it's highly subjective) that resource loses credibility for me. Because: it can be run by newbie or if they are rather known businesses, they usually don't bother customizing WHMCS to fit their main website design perfectly, which should be done in such case.
nothing wrong with Blesta. i have been using it since I restarted my hosting business and have had no issues

The price can be very high due to the exchange rates in the countries.
for example, 1$ = 8.16 lira in Turkey. so it is multiplied by x8. Imagine that a hosting company with 50.000 customers will have an approximate license fee of 6928.66 turkish lira per month and this monthly will be very high.

So, if it were me, I would have a special software company make my own customer management system for these prices and it would be much cheaper.
It is the same happening to us. In Sri Lanka, we offer some hosting packages on an Annual Basis. Such as Annually 14$ like that. Actually, what WHMCS did, is worst now.

But WHMCS and the same with cPanel have only done what Plesk has been doing for years and as cPanel is owned by Oakley Capital who also own Plesk then it was natural that they would move to the same structure.

Yes, exchange rates differ for all countries, but the actual exchange rate you use will be set by the payment processor. as officially the rate may be 1$ = 8.16 lira in Turkey, but if you use paypal and PP rates is 1$ = 8.65 lira in Turkey then this is the rate you need to use, but if pp rates changed to 1$ = 6.2 lira in Turkey, then this is the rate you use.
WHMCS before they were taken over by cPanel caused many issues for UK users as they have always taken payments in USD even though they were UK based, so the actual amount paid each month changed according to exchange rates even though i was in the same country.
