WHMCS Version 6.2 Pre-Release Announcement

Our team has been hard at work and a little over 2 months since our last big update, we're pleased to announce the pre-release launch of WHMCS Version 6.2.

Introducing 2 more new order forms, WHMCS Single Sign-On, Integration with cPanel, Invoice Drafts, Improved Client Search, Customer Retention Analytics and more, this is a very exciting release.

  • New Order Forms - Universal Slider perfect for offering any type of product with a slider based selection, and Supreme Comparison a matrix comparison style order form with support for up to 6 products compared horizontally.
  • Invoice Drafts - Now you can create and prepare invoices in a new Draft mode, hidden from clients until you're done allowing you to track and build invoices over time
  • Improved Client Search - Big new features are cool, but sometimes it's the little things that make the difference - and we think this will make a real difference. Navigating between and locating clients is now much easier with dynamic searchable dropdown menus.
  • WHMCS Single Sign-On - Making it possible for trusted third party applications to authenticate your users into WHMCS, this feature is leveraged through another new feature we're terming Application Links. More on this to come.
  • cPanel Integration - We've taken WHMCS Single Sign-On and leveraged a new feature coming in the next version of cPanel/WHM to allow your customers to transition from cPanel to WHMCS quickly, easily, and without re-authenticating
  • OpenID Connect - Implements OAuth 2.0 with support for OpenID Connect, users can now login to cPanel using their WHMCS Billing login credentials
  • Customer Retention Analytics - With products now storing the date they are terminated, a new report gives you insights into the average customer retention time for your products and services.
  • WHMCS Connect 2.0 - With search and a more unified interface, managing multiple servers has never been easier. Read last week's feature spotlight for more

We'll be posting more on the new WHMCS Single Sign-On and cPanel Integration in a feature spotlight within the next few days so stay tuned - we think you'll like it.

In the meantime, if you want to learn more, check out the Version 6.2 Release Notes for more in depth details on the new functionality.

Be among the first to experience and try out these awesome new features. Get involved and download WHMCS 6.2 today!

As always, please remember this is a pre-release version and is not recommended for production use.

Feature Spotlight: WHMCS Connect 2.0


The development team here at WHMCS HQ has been locked away for the past 2 months, hard at work on WHMCS 6.2. That's right WHMCS 6.2 is almost here! Today we're providing the first in a series of Feature Spotlights on what's new and what you have to look forward to.

What is WHMCS Connect?

Perhaps one of the most ground breaking features to debut in WHMCS 6.0 was WHMCS Connect. WHMCS Connect? With all the other new features and functionality we packed into WHMCS 6.0, we wouldn't blame you if you missed it. Read on to find out all you need to know.

WHMCS Connect is the new way to administer and manage your cPanel Web Servers. From a single centralized interface you can now access the WHM Control Panel for all your servers and without ever having to enter a username or password thanks to the power of Single Sign-On.
  • Faster and more secure
  • Centralized storage of API authentication details
  • Permissions for group based access control
  • The days of sharing and struggling to keep passwords in sync are over

What's New in 6.2?

We were overwhelmed with the positive feedback we received regarding WHMCS Connect when it first launched a little over 5 months ago. We heard you loud and clear. You wanted to be able to find servers more quickly. So we're pleased to announce real-time search is coming along with a new and improved interface. Now finding and logging into the server you want is lightning fast.

What's next for WHMCS Connect?

While today only the cPanel module integrates the necessary API's to leverage this functionality, the API's for WHMCS Connect are open and available for any module developers to integrate into their modules and we expect to see many adding support for WHMCS Connect soon.

This feature, along with many more are coming up in WHMCS 6.2 which is just weeks away. There is so much more to share, be sure to stay tuned for more updates.

Need help with WHMCS Connect, you can always contact our support team who is standing by to assist you.

P.S. We're now on Instagram... follow us to see all the latest happenings from our offices and travels.
