Enable Application Linking with cPanel Today

By Matt / February 4th, 2016

Application Linking removes the separation between control panel and billing.

What is Application Linking?

Today users have two distinct control panels, one for their website, and one for billing & support. We want to change that and provide a more integrated experience for web hosting consumers. That's where Application Links comes in.

Thanks to Application Links and WHMCS Single Sign-On, with WHMCS 6.2, your customers can now transition seamlessly from cPanel to WHMCS providing:

  • Easier access to billing and support resources
  • A streamlined web hosting and billing/support experience
  • Greater up-sell opportunities with links to order upgrades and buy domains inside of cPanel
  • Seamless transition between cPanel and WHMCS without re-authentication thanks to Single Sign-On technology
  • Quicker and more convenient access to your brand directly from cPanel
This functionality is available for module developers to integrate into their own modules too.

What version of cPanel do I need?

To use Application Links with cPanel you'll need cPanel & WHM 54 which is available now. If you have automatic updates enabled, you've probably already been updated to it.

How do I get started?

Enabling Application Linking is super quick & easy. In most cases it shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes.
