    Default API to Westhost?

    Is there by any chance an API available through WH to facilitate account creation?

    For instance, I am a reseller that would like to setup my own website to take an order for a new hosting account, process the payment (on my end), and then if the funds are there send a command to create the new hosting account and preferrably configure it the way I need it to be (i.e. install PHP, MySQL, etc). My goal is to automate that functionality if possible.

    I looked for this answer before posting but could not find any info, my apologies if this has been covered already.

    Thanks!

    Once upon a time, some years back, when I first joined WH, there was a promise of an 'Account Manager', much like the Site Manager, but allowing us to manage accounts. After a couple of years of 'Real Soon Now' it seems to have disappeared...

    I assume that, yes, there is an API (probably to the Sphera VPS system) as the Reseller Manager does do account creation, but I don't know if it is publically available.

    None of which helps you much, but gives you some background.

    New customers will have it this Summer then existing client will be migrated after that spanning about a years period. They are not rushing things this time. Have a look at the WH 4.0 area for more details and updates.
