HostShop Automation

What is HostShop?

Automated. Flexible. Modular. Beautiful.(And free!)

There’s more to running a successful hosting business than simply buying an unlimited hosting package.

You need to set up a website and a store. Then you’d have to put in place all the business processes and customer support systems which you’d need for any online business.

HostShop takes care of all of this out of the box: giving you the freedom to concentrate on what you enjoy. It can be customised to match your branding, and it’s modular – use all of its features or just what you need. We created it in-house, using the expertise and experience built up over 20 years in the web hosting industry.

The best alternative to WHMCS comes free with the 20i Reseller Hosting package.

HOSTING ECOMMERCE TOOL

A Seamless Shopping Experience

Just enter your hosting products, prices and payment provider details into My20i and your shop is ready to go. A customer can select and pay for hosting, domain or a VPS and begin using it immediately – all without your input.

Any payments will go through a free automatic fraud-checking service. HostShop supports all the major payment gateways including GoCardless, PayPal, Square, Stripe and more.

The shop is visually identical as your customers’ control panel, StackCP, so the flow between them is seamless.

Seamless Shopping
HostShop Features

Manage Pricing and Content Easily

Simple Product and Service Management

You can sell all of 20i’s products and services: hosting, VPS, domains, SSLs, database licences and more. You can also sell your own products – such as themes – through HostShop.

Products and pricing can be as simple or as complex as you’d like.

It’s just a few clicks to change prices or descriptions, and there are no limits on what you can offer. You can manage prices and taxes globally, or drill-down to change individual hosting packages. Offer discounts on any product through codes your customers can enter at payment. We include helpful ‘recommended prices’ on domains and VPS to give you a head start.

You can even charge for services that we provide for free to Resellers – like our malware scanner – meaning that you’ll be making 100% profit on every sale.

Based on Bootstrap 4

Stylish Website Templates

HostShop also features a set of 4 modern website templates, prefilled with white-label marketing copy and royalty-free imagery. While they give you all you need to start your business, we would recommend personalising your hosting site to suit your brand. The templates are based on the Bootstrap 4 framework, so it’s easy to make those changes.

Options

Selling Hosting Fast

Integrate into your Existing Website

If you have an established business, you can add the hosting store to it: it will integrate with any pre-existing site.

You can add products other than hosting to the shop too. Web design, SEO, one-off design charges, themes – all these can be added to HostShop. Your clients can then make all their payments in one simple, attractive and secure interface.

BUSINESS AUTOMATION

Set and Forget

While we don’t want you to abandon the human touch, it’s easy to automate all your business processes. You can set up and manage:

  • Recurring contracts
  • Renewal notification sequences
  • Automatic invoicing
  • Failed payments and unpaid invoices

Preset default automated sequences and messages are included to give you a running start. So you can start your business today. Or, if you’d prefer, you can edit and tweak all the business automation features until it’s exactly how you want to run things.

Our StackCP Help Desk software gives you all you need to deal with customer queries.

Your customers are able to send support requests via their StackCP control panel, and you can respond through the sophisticated ticketing system in My20i. You can create and customise departments, statuses and email notifications or use the presets.

Marketing Emails
Marketing Emails

You can send HTML or plain-text emails to your customers to promote your hosting business. Bulk, branded emails can be sent to selected StackCP Users; segmented based on the product they use.

You can choose an email template, modify, test, save – then send it out. The emails can include all the personalisation you’d like, with a wealth of variables to focus them on the individual.

Control Panel Messaging
Control Panel Messaging

Perhaps you have something more urgent or important to impart to your customers, such as holiday opening hours?

The StackCP Message Centre makes it simple to target all (or a select few) of your customers with a control panel message. They’ll receive it as soon as they log in.

Web Hook Notifications
