WHMCS Reseller Hosting Module

As every great host knows, you can't stop there! We for many years have offered you the ability to sell domains through our domain reseller module, however, we have again gone a step further by introducing our new module for WHMCS called UKBSS Reseller.

As you know, your Hosting/Reseller Hosting account allows you to sell hosting accounts to your clients. As every great host knows, you can't stop there!

We for many years have offered you the ability to sell domains through our domain reseller module, however, we have again gone a step further by introducing our new module for WHMCS called UKBSS Reseller Hosting Pro.

Traditionally, selling additional products such as VPS servers or reseller hosting would require complex and expensive infrastructure - the goal behind the introduction of our Reseller module is to allow you to start selling those services without any upfront costs or ongoing overheads/risks (you got that right, no costs - just another perk of being a UKBSS.COM Reseller!)

Best of all, you get access to exclusive wholesale pricing and discounts on our entire range of services for the purpose of resale, with the ability to set your own pricing margins!

The UKBSS Reseller is essentially a plugin available for WHMCS, which allows you to sell our entire range of services in just a few clicks!

This means you can start selling:

  • Cloud VPS Servers (in Beta)
  • Elastic Cloud
  • Reseller Hosting
  • Shared Hosting
  • WordPress Hosting
  • Dedicated Servers (coming soon!)
  • Kubernetes & Containers (coming soon!)
  • Object Storage aka buckets (Coming soon!)
  • Backup-servers (Coming soon!)

The module is super easy to install, and whilst it was in beta, was being used by hundreds of resellers here so far, and we would love for you to get on board also!

Start expanding your hosting/dev business today! To get started, feel free to familiarise yourself with the documentation below.

Getting Started:


Request Access:


To access our new  reseller platform which allows you to sell our products at a discounted price, please raise a support ticket to allow our team to enable the module and reseller centre for your reseller account.

Once done, log into our client area and download the new module from  Reseller Area > Settings (as shown below)

Add / Mannage API Details:

View the image below to see configuration details.


Download and Install the Module:


The next step is to upload the file you have downloaded to the root of your WHMCS installation, for example, if it was installed at example.com you would log into your account, go to the file manager and upload it to /WHMCS Directory/Modules/Servers. Once uploaded, extract the file using the ‘Extract’ option.

Once this is done, the basic installation of the module is complete.


Create Product Group:


Now we have to configure the module, so log into your WHMCS installation, go to Setup > Products/Services.

From here, we will create a new group...

You may call the group anything you wish. For example, you may wish to create a group called ‘Elastic Cloud’, and add the Elastic Cloud products to this group. You are able to create additional groups for the other products available, for example a second group for ‘Reseller Hosting’.


Create a Product:


We will then create a product, which will belong to the newly created group.

To do this, navigate to the same Products / Services screen and click ‘Create a New Product’. Fill out the options, selecting the group you created in the previous step. I have filled them out as an example…

Set your pricing in the pricing tab to be as you need, depending on the product.

The pricing of each resalable product or service can be found in our client area, by navigating to Services -> Reseller Area -> Pricing. From here, you will be able to select the product you wish to start selling by selecting the icon to the right-hand side.

The important part is under the ‘**Module Settings**’ tab – this lists the products that you can sell through the platform. You must input your API credentials.

You can obtain your reseller API credentials by going to our client area -> Services -> Reseller Area and selecting ‘Settings’.


IMPORTANT: If you are adding a cPanel based product, such as our Reseller Hosting products or the Elastic Cloud, then you now have an additional option in the product setup screen. Enabling the 'Allow ssoLogin in Client Area' option, will provide you the ability to give your clients single sign-on from your own client area.


Once these fields have been correctly populated, you will be given the option to select the product / service you wish to resell from the dropdown provided (products may vary from the screenshot provided)…

Once selected, click the save button and the product is ready to be bought by your clients!


The Order Process:


Once a client raises an order through your own WHMCS installation, the service will be purchased directly with ourselves and the appropriate cost will be taken from your credit balance.

Please ensure that you have credit in your account if you wish to use our new module.

That’s it, all complete and ready to allow your clients to purchase our products directly from you, allowing you to profit from our products.
