Friendly URLs

sinan mobarak shared this idea 1 year ago
Under Consideration

WHMCS has an option to make the URLs Friendly, but this option doesn't work for all WHMCS sections only supports the downloads, announcements and knowledgebase sections on

the client area - it is not currently possible to use them elsewhere on

the client area. the rest of the pages is using .php at the end of the URLs. this is really bad for SEO.

It would be very nice if supporting the client and order processes too.

Hi there,

Thanks for your suggestion.

We are investigating expanding the Friendly URLs coverage into other areas of the system: https://requests.whmcs.com/topic/products-links-seo-friendly-urls

The shopping cart seems a natural place for this, but I didn't expect to see a request for clientarea.php. A search engine bot crawling the site will not be able to access anything more than the login page, so would only view this as one page.

It would be interesting to see a report on any negative search engine ranking this was having to your website.


I also feel like friendly URLs should be more widespread across WHMCS. Having something such as /account/details and /client/invoices, etc looks a lot nicer and I don't think it would be that hard to implement for something such as WHMCS v8.

I've been trying my best to create rewrite rules to be able to do this myself.


Please add this! I can then use WHMCS to power everything! Saves having to manage/update HTML website plus WHMCS.


Not forgetting if using WHMCS for design part too it can be less of a security issue as not having to use integration with WordPress etc. That is important given WHMCS is the billing system. GDPR etc.
