Question

What's the best way to sell VPS hosting through DigitalOcean?

Hello,

I’m interested in starting up a hosting business through the DigitalOcean system. My plan is to start off by offering VPS hosting (automated with WHMCS). I’ve had a look and can see that there are different ways I could offer VPS hosting, and as I’m still relatively new to this field, would it be possible for someone to suggest a few ways that I could do this - with pros and cons?

Thanks!

Hello,

As far as I can see there are a few modules that you could use to integrate DigitalOcean’s API with WHMCS. Here’s one module from the official WHMCS marketplace:

It seems like that it comes with all of the necessary functionality that you could think of.

Another option for you would be to use HostBill which is an alternative to WHMCS and comes with free integration for DigitalOcean. You could take a look at the tool here:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
