Hello,

If you are looking for a ready to use platform, I would recommend using a web hosting billing system like Hostbill or WHMCS.

According to their official website, HostBill lets you automate provisioning of DigitalOcean Droplets, providing your customers with nice client area GUI to control their services. The client panel offers a variety of possibilities, from creating and destroying the droplets to setting SSH keys and injecting them to droplets. Admin area, on the other hand, lets you keep everything under control, from billing details, through the account lifecycle to client area sections access.

For more information, you can visit this page here:

If you prefer WHMCS you could use a module like this one:

Also, DigitalOcean provides an API that you could use to automate provisioning new servers, you could use and create your own web hosting billing system.

Hope that this helps!

Bobby

  • Thank you for this,
    But How can I provide shared hosting to the customers? According to your information that only for new droplets executing. But I want to use one droplet and make it different-different parts(shared hosting) according to customer needs.

    Is this possible?

    • Hi @updatingspot,

      Yes this should not be a problem, you could use a control panel like cPanel for example and install it on a Droplet.

      Then with the WHMCS or the Hostbill billing systems, you will be able to automate the account creation whenever a user signs up.

      Hope that this helps!
      Regards,
      Bobby
