Hostclaw (beta)

Manage your customers and billing for your web host if you use WHM

Hostclaw is a billing script for WHM that is written in PHP.

There are no screenshots because the script was made in 2008 in the php4 days, and I need to upgrade it to php7 standards.


  • Support for free hosting (good for free web hosts)
  • Checks amount of forum posts a user has made. (Good for when a free web host requires a user to make a certain amount of forum posts before requesting free hosting)
  • Affiliate program
  • Automatic suspension of accounts which have not paid their monthly fee after 30 days of the invoice email being sent
  • Instant activation of paid hosting accounts
  • Upgrading of free hosting accounts on request or once they've made enough forum posts
  • Customisable header, footer and CSS on the order form
  • Adding hosting packages and changing their prices
  • View your recent transactions and how much each one paid you
  • View the personal details of each one of your customers
  • Change the currency you wish to sell in
  • Cron the renewal emails, to send automatic emails to customers to pay their monthly fee
  • Suspend and unsuspend hosting accounts in the admin panel
