SolusVM Custom Design?

SolusVM Custom Design?

INIZINIZ Member
edited September 2012 in Providers

Any LEB provider using a custom SolusVM layout or sticking to default? Just know some have a different login page but inside is pretty much normal with slight edits.

We just started on ours and a ~hour of work by me: image

Looking to change table style, usage bars etc. soon as well

    Why fix if it is not broken? What will you do when new update comes out?

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • @Taz_NinaHawk Update it just like anyone would do with WHMCS etc.? Not really hard as long as there's release notes and default style to check from

    It's definitely on my to do list, but it's right there next to setting up templates and advertisement pages that appeal to shared hosting clients as a sort of upgrade.

    Yours is looking good.

    Just incase your wondering yes I integrated that design, it was made by Sam Asante the design though for cPanel and adapted by me for SolusVM.

    We have resellers, but it has never really effected us since it doesn't mention any brand etc.

    Isn't that the custom cPanel theme I see everywhere?

  • @Brandon said: Isn't that the custom cPanel theme I see everywhere?

    Yup, but we have it in SolusVM instead, I got permission from Sam to integrate it. However he is a pretty good friend of mine.

  • Very nice integration @StormVZ! You're already showing yourself and you haven't launched yet, I like it! :D

    Nice!

    I never understood why people go through an effort of starting a business but then don't take the time to make 3rd party applications they use like SolusVM, WHMCS, cPanel/WHM, etc and look like it belongs to the brand.

    When I browse some LEB sites as a customer, if I see a nice site and then a default WHMCS template, I just think it reflects poorly.

    TL;DR Good integrations are good.

    @MannDude may be it is not worthy? I might understand whmcs, but why really worry about a control panel integration?

    Out of zillion cpanel host out there, I am yet to see one with nice cpanel integration (E.I.G. Does not count).

  • @Taz_NinjaHawk said: may be it is not worthy? I might understand whmcs, but why really worry about a control panel integration?

    I just like the idea of a customer having a similar/familiar visual throughout every aspect of their interaction with a company. I just think it gives off a much better impression to take the time to make your control panels and billing system look like a part of your site / brand.

    E.I.G DOESN'T COUNT! Btw, they are still using cpanel? I thought they would move everyone to Vdeck?

    I think they're still using cPanel, but a modified version.

    I remember trying to move accounts from a bluehost customer was a pain in the ass. I'm not sure why, but their backups aren't compatible with regular installs of cPanel and always had to be restored manually.

    Probably.

  • bluehost's backup files are not actually created by cPanel's backup software built in. They created their own backup system that follows what cPanel does, but compresses it differently, stores it differently, and then removes all of the misc cPanel crap that cPanel puts in the backup.

    It suits them well, their backup's are great and take up little space, but to move, requires anyone to manually restore it...which takes hours and hours of time and understanding of how cPanel backup's work. Bluehost/Hostmonster/fastdomain's pretty much hates everyone and make it a PITA to do anything with them. Now that they released "betterlinux" they think they are better than everyone else and do not conform to normalcy.

  • @Taz_NinjaHawk Site5 have there own cPanel design and doesn't look too bad

  • E.I.G loves to force customers to use their crappy software.

  • It's actually nice, in the sense that it eliminates junk @ranty.

    I reckon imports work fine with their own system as well, and that was what they intended.

    Replying for the sake of replying is usually deemed bad practice, just sayin'.

  • @LV_Matt Looks great! Sam still around? Not seen him in a few months and his site seems to be deleted(Vissol)

    That's the one I've designed, WHMCS skinned in the same way.

    Afterburst - awesome & unmetered!

    Slight update to ours: image

    Right now Home & Virtual Servers is just the same page default by SolusVM. Looking to make a blog script to show latest updates for clients, news features etc and put that on home instead

  • @StormVZ Looking great! Although I think it's better to add some padding and border alignment would be make it look better imho.

  • @rgenzon Yeah just stripping it down and re-editing it slowly. Will fully redesign the CPU resources and stats. Might actually do it in PSD first then slice it down properly

  • @StormVZ Awesome!

    Wow. great work! LV_Matt .

  • @LV_Matt How much do you charge for the design and integration?

  • Same question as @adnroid1.

  • @LV_Matt Sam is really cool, I've sent him some bug fixes for that cPanel theme and in return he gave us some free licenses.

  • @LV_Matt the boxintense design is one of my most favorite ones! Great work :) http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/135993#Comment_135993

    ^

  • We offer it on a quote by quote basis depending on the level of integration.

    Start from around $50, its all done on a quote by quote basis depending on your individual requirements, one integration can take much longer than another that's for sure.

    I am booked up for the next 2-3 weeks, but if you want a quote just message me.
