Here I'd like to talk about the most popular billing softwares used in web hosting and find out which is most suitable to your business.

TOP web hosting billing softwares

Actually there're many outstanding billing softwares developed by smart programmers. Here're 3 of the most popular ones on the market: ClientExec, Hostbill, Whmcs.

ClientExec — It's a Linux based commercial billing solution and is developed by NEWEDGE Services, Inc. Basically, this software has included all common hosting billing tasks modules/plugins such as domain registration, payment gateway integration and fraud protection etc, you can also integrate clientexec to many third party technologies

ClientExec vs Hostbill vs Whmcs

Since all the three softwares are highly rated, which is actually better from user feedbacks? Let's check out this table list first about their features

Software Name WHMCS HostBill ClientExec
Monthly Price $15.95 not available $15.95
Required OS Windows & Linux Windows & Linux Linux
Developers API yes yes yes
User Ratings A++ A A

As you see, ClientExec and whmcs are almost the same price structure as well as technical parts, however clientexec is only working for linux services while whmcs is compatible with both linux & windows. the hostbill is working with both OS but has to be paid anually which might not be good solution for small companies. From all aspects comparison, whmcs would be better choice no matter if you're running a small hosting company or large business.

Hosting control panel doesn't require separate billing software

If you searched around the web, most hosting service are cpanel based and always need separate billing system to manage your account profiles. Is there an all-in-one solution for all about this? Yes there is, Vdeck is the best one where you can manage web hosting, billing and domain registration etc under the same interface. However since it's still an inhoused product, you can't purchase it anywhere, if you would like to sign up Vdeck hosting plan you can consider Fatcow or iPage since they're the leading name for this product.

    Good comparison! But I think you should add some more billing software details like RackNap and Zuora. I have heard a lot about Hostbill, it is also a nice billing platform for web hosting companies. I particularly look for automation in a software. Automation will help the organizations to ensure a faster time to market. RackNap is complete hosting automation software. You will not need a separate software for each business process if you get everything in one. Zuora also provides some level of automation. You can read about them here:

    Nice comparison! I am least aware of Hostbill, while I am well-versed with WHMCS and ClientExec. You can also go for other cloud billing management platforms like RackNap. Read its review here:

    It is one of the best SaaS based platforms that provides complete billing automation for your web hosting business. With its easy to use admin panel you can keep a track of all the details of your customer’s billing.
