ResellersPanel Debuts API and Launches a Hosting Plan Creator

ResellersPanel has incorporated API (Application Programming Interface) software into its hosting platform, and has launched Liquid Plan Builder -- a web hosting tool, which allows the resellers to create their own hosting plans.

The UK-based reseller hosting provider ResellersPanel announces the introduction of API (Application Programming Interface) software, which allows a 100% customization of customers' websites, to its hosting platform. Some of the functionalities of ResellersPanel API version 1.0 include domain name availability checker, username availability checker, domain name and web hosting account registration, and web hosting plan selection. The API, which returns results in plain text and XML format, can be accessed via an authorized IP address through a secure SSL connection using a MD5 encrypted password (IPs are added via the ResellersPanel Control Panel).

Beside the API, ResellersPanel has also launched Liquid Plan Builder -- a web hosting tool, which allows the resellers to create their own hosting plans and then resell them. It is now available in the Free Reseller Program's Control Panel and is fully compatible with all the website templates currently supported by ResellersPanel. Each web hosting plan must include the following components: Disk space, Traffic, Hosted domains and E-mail boxes. They must have values different from 0. The Liquid Plan Builder-created hosting plans can be offered via the API.

Nick Blaskov, CFO of ResellersPanel, said that by using the API software to create accounts for their customers, the resellers gain the opportunity to have a billing gateway of their own, thus keeping a direct connection with the customers, and that the Liquid Plan Builder gives the resellers an unprecedented opportunity to create unlimited unique hosting plans, consistent with the goals of their marketing campaigns, and offer them directly on their online stores -- something, which makes the Liquid Plan Builder an indivisible part of ResellersPanel's fully automated reseller solution - the Free Reseller Program.
