Following the decision to integrate with cPanel, our client began searching for a company that could package the software to fit cPanel standards. GlowTouch was the ideal choice due to its status as a cPanel Certified business, as well as possessing a broad knowledgebase of cPanel.
GlowTouch developers performed a detailed study of the client’s API’s to confirm that the interaction with cPanel was possible. Once GlowTouch confirmed that the plug-in could be built, a timeline of the cPanel integration was agreed upon and we fast-tracked the project to ensure a quick turnaround.
As the project progressed, our client decided to integrate the custom plug-in with WHMCS, who provides a simple-to-use billing platform for cPanel users. Their free version of the website builder is somewhat limited, and the WHMCS integration allows a hoster to purchase an upgraded account offering additional customizable website design options.
GlowTouch developed and built the plug-in for the client, while integrating the WHMCS component. This integration allowed hosting providers more flexibility to configure products and prices. The plug-in automatically upgrades the WHMCS feature by making a client API call to acquire product details. Additionally, the WHMCS plug-in automates product configuration, which includes set up for multiple currencies while allowing the customer to upgrade or downgrade website building options.
By adding WHMCS, GlowTouch was able to help our client offer customers a greater variety of website building packages. One user-friendly feature lets them click on an icon on the panel to identify whether that user is a new or an existing user. Another feature is a login button that re-directs straight to the client’s website.
