Hey folks,

As a newbie to Web Hosting, it only make sense for me to start here. The problem is see with the whole web hosting reseller gig, is initially you have got nothing but costs and all sorts of technical aggravation. The problem I see with Client Exec is it seems like (by their own documentation) they only support a few domain registrars and I do not have a clue if they will (or can easily be customized).

My question is if you have only been in the game as a web hosting reseller wannabe for like two months would you go with ClientExec which I apparently have for FREE thanks to my plan, or pay the extra monthly money (or try to buy the WHMCS license outright) from someone getting out of the web hosting biz for a deep discount?

For start clienExec is ok porgram. Sure WHMCS is more powefull, but for start is ClientExec great, special if you get one for free. Most company who offer reseller packages also offer ENOM domain registrar, clientExec support ENOM.

+1 WHMCS. ClientExec can not compare it because WHMCS is simply the best application offered for managing a hosting business.

I have taken my time to review Clientexec and I should say it is very good app. However WHMCS is much more comprehensive and feature-rich software.

I'd have said WHMCS without doubt a few months ago, however now ClientExec really has changed (for the better!) The new update (I believe 4.1) has a new front end which looks quite nice and the back-end was completely redesigned recently and so it's much nicer than it used to be.

I think the support system could do with a bit of work, but apart from that, for what we want to sell, ClientExec is very good!

WHMCS would be a good choice especially with their new v5 update coming soon. You should consider whmcs as it is reliable and it also supports whmphp reseller plugin.

WHMCS all the way - its easy to skin, regularly updated and well supported. No complaints at all. They've also got far more plugin support going for them, making it an even more attractive proposition in comparison to the likes of ClientExec and Blesta - Blesta haven't even got a DirectI domain reseller plugin yet!

I appreciate this is an old thread but seeing as it's been recently bumped and others are posting their comments I thought I'd add my opinion.

Having used both ClientExec (2-3 years ago) and WHMCS (currently) I much prefer WHMCS.

Initially I had lots of issues with ClientExec not actually generating new invoices for some clients meaning we were loosing income and additionally I didn't find it very flexible.

Having now used WHMCS for the past 2-3 years, I've had no major problems and its very reassuring to know that Matt and his team are a ticket away to resolve any emergencies or assist with bespoke work.

I have used both and prefer WHMCS. WHMCS is just better in all aspects when it comes to hosting IMO.

I would recommend ClientExec to start off with, especially if you get it for free. When you do have the budget, I would HIGHLY recommend switching to WHMCS.
