    WHMCS is a Web Hosting automation and billing solution, maintained by the company of the same name. WHMCS is a web-based billing system providing both an Admin Dashboard for managing products, domains, support tickets and customers as well as providing a client-facing front-end client area where customers can login and manage their Domain names and Web Hosting products directly.

    WHMCS is designed and tested on Linux based environments running Apache web server, although it can run on any properly configured environment which support PHP and MySQL although this isn't fully supported[2]

    History[edit]

    WHMCS Limited is a privately owned UK Limited Company based in Milton Keynes, UK.[3] WHMCS began when the founder Matt Pugh was running a web hosting business and decided to write a "one stop solution"[4] providing easy management of clients, recurring billing and easy integration with popular hosting softwares such as cPanel.

    On July 16, 2012 WHMCS announced their new "partnership" arrangement with cPanel with an aim to provide a more seamlessly integrated service and support from both companies.[5] shortly after this John "Nick" Koston, CEO of cPanel was officially appointed as director of WHMCS Limited and took a 49% shareholding.[6]

    Acquisition[edit]

    On June 3, 2019 WHMCS announced[7] it had signed an agreement to be acquired by WebPros Group led by Oakley Capital (who also own cPanel, Plesk and SolusVM). While the founder Matt Pugh, and Nick Koston sold their interest in WHMCS, both own equity in the new parent group.
