Resell cPanel License

Johann shared this idea 6 months ago
Already Possible


In our case, we were reselling cpanel licenses via our NOC provider OVH, and we stopped since there is no possibility to manage this anymore with last cpanel price update.

We need a whmcs plugin for such license type based on volume where we would input prices per license type, and this plugin should check the official site 'license check cPanel' with related IP to know what is license type to apply, then we would know the rate to invoice

Hi Johann,

Great news; such a thing exists! https://marketplace.whmcs.com/product/4993

We do not have plans to create a generic or sub-reseller cPanel license reseller module, in part because cPanel's Manage2 API doesn't have the concept of tracking or authenticating sub-resellers such as yourself.

In the immediate term, what they could do is switch to the fixed price (non-auto-scale) cPanel licenses.

That way you and your clients have a predictable regular price. Clients can login to their client area to place an upgrade order when they want to move up/down a cPanel license tier, and you can then update this with your reseller manually.

In the longer term, provided your license reseller has an API which exposes the number of accounts associated with a cPanel license, you could create a provisioning module which leverages the Usage Metrics feature to invoice clients based upon the number of users: https://developers.whmcs.com/provisioning-modules/usage-metrics/
