WHMCS has the most plugins/addons so it seems like the most complete. Blesta is a cheaper option tho, it is $140/license only, and its lifetime, and there doesnt seem to be a yearly update/upgrade/support fee for now.

I think this requires some clarification -

There is a yearly support & updates charge of $39/year for the Owned Branded and Owned Unbranded licenses. Its optional, you only pay if you want to upgrade or get support after the 1st year. Only the Lifetime license comes with lifetime support & updates. The Lifetime license can only be purchased direct, and not through resellers.

Yes I am looking to purchase another but noticed that since November WHMCS do not offer one time pricing now. So how does Blesta compare to WHMCS???

If you are not bothered about the mountain of features and modules that come with WHMCS the Blesta will do.

you have check the Blesta demo at https://www.blesta.com/demo/ (something WHMCS dont offer)

Ok thanks I will check it out.....I guess the other option would be to use existing lifetime license on a payment domain, although I think this may lead to a drop in conversions going to an external site?

If you already have a lifetime WHMCS licence then i think you can still get the annual updates as before.
Open a ticket with them and they should clarify this

WHMCS has many addition plugins, also not they finish version 7.2 and has marketplace, now allowed 3 services for reselling SSL , Website builder and Email secure but i think after 1-3 month they add more services.

ClienExec cheaper , and you can use them if you no need extra plugins.

you mean market connect and yes, but we were reselling a far bigger range of SSL at a cheaper price and have website builders and email security for sale to clients at cheaper prices.
Also their documentations for these lacks a lot of info, such as they say they provide pre set template pages, but dont tell you how to access or use these.

The need to spend their time and effort into something like making their backup service use SFTP. adding something like market connect to resell products most host will already resell is just a waste of time and resources.

Yes that part is ok....I am thinking more about more than one site and then possibly choosing another platform which is paid once rather than monthly really....doesnt really make sense IMO to just pay them indefinitely when there are other good options available as a lifetime option

Have you checked module gardens, they have a module that allows you to run several sites off 1 WHMCS licence

I've been using PHPcoin which isn't too bad and it's free. But I do miss WHMCS and I recently purchased a license for it and will soon be configuring it on the server. My customers were having trouble with PHPcoin when ordering domains and understandably so. It was hard to set up the area to even sell domains, it's all lumped into the same area with the plans. One customer ordered the same domain like 5 times since he was having trouble. So I emailed him and told him I'd just send him an invoice through paypal for the domain and go ahead and register it for him once the payment came through. Then I just deleted his multiple orders from PHPcoin.

I know that back when I used WHMCS I was getting more customers. So there is something to be said for good software. Even though it holds a rather hefty price tag, it's gotten popular because it's high in demand, which means it's good.

https://www.blesta.com/pricing/ shows $500 for a lifetime license.
