Better value than WHMCS
Why HostShop is the best WHMCS alternative
WHMCS places limits on the number of sites you can host and charges you for the privilege. Add in the licensing cost of cPanel as well, and the bill soon racks up.
The great thing is, the more accounts you host, the more you save with 20i and HostShop. We don't charge you for being successful, our price stays the same.
