What is WHMCS

If you are a reseller and are looking for a one-stop hosting solution for things such as handling Billing and Support ticket requests, WHMCS is an incredible solution.
It is compatible with the major payment gateways such as PayPal, Google Checkout, and Authorize.Net, and includes many features such as the ability to use various currencies, create invoices, and create promotions.
You can access a Live Demo of WHMCS here. You can also access the official WHMCS How-to guides here.
We will now show you how to accomplish the most common tasks in WHMCS.

How to Login to the Admin section of WHMCS:

  1. Access the website you installed WHMCS on, and add a: /admin to the end. For example if you installed WHMCS on:, you would navigate to: to access the admin login page.

Hello Raquel28,

The WHMCS (Web Host Manager Complete Solution)is a software application that is designed to work through the web, but in its own interface. If you were to integrate it into your website, then you would need to either simply link to it, or hire developers who can design a custom WHMCS interface for you that you can include in your website.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.
