We are pleased to release our first public module for WHMCS, the VPS247 Module enables easy integration with the vps247.com VPS platform and enables complete control over the Virtual Machines to enables easy provisioning and management of your customers VMs.
This module includes a huge variety of features and really takes advantage of the VPS247 API, and even uses some not yet documented API functions!
– Force Stop
– Return status (unfortunately this is currently returned as an “error” as WHMCS doesn’t support custom success messages on the Admin side)
– Update VM Info (this grabs the VM info and updates the WHMCS database, helpful for grabbing IPs, name and other info.)
Easy product setup, simply enter the Diskspace, Memory and Transfer limits and the OS template for the plan and you’re done.
Note: We are planning to enable “block resources” and more flexibility to enable the user to select the OS etc when ordering in the next release!
We also have a clever little option to “Try to use allocated (but free) IP first” this can be helpful for when IP’s have been allocated to your VPS247 account but aren’t used, so instead of trying to get a new one (which will give errors if you don’t have any spare) and will instead use your unallocated IP’s.
We have also included a nice user interface in the product details page which shows the user some helpful info on their VM as well as some basic controls for their VM (Stop/start/forcestop/restart) – As shown below.
We are very keen to keep up the development of this module and build on the features and functions and have and hope to continue working with VPS247.com to help this build and grow into a fantastic module and a brilliant VPS platform.
There are many key features on the roadmap for the module, including a fully custom management interface based on the code released by VPS247 enabling you to provide an easy white label VPS platform for your clients.
All feedback for this is very much appreciated and will aid future development. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below!
