    Whats the catch here?

    I'm sure this can't be free, are you getting commissions from the providers?


    Looks really good though, I'll give it a shot this weekend!

    Yes, it's free for web hosting companies.

    We are inviting various providers to share their resources in our marketplace, from which we will take a commission. This enables hosting companies to sell these resources on their own websites without any additional fees.

    In addition to our current providers, Vultr, Hetzner, and DigitalOcean, we will also be adding other local and public providers.

  • Free For Hosting Companies Means You won’t take any commissions from hosting company’s?

    And what about user interface means what action they can do from whmcs like reboot or etc?

    Thanks

    Yes, that's correct. Caasify does not take commissions from web hosting companies. Users can add funds to their balance on your website, create virtual machines with hourly billing, and manage them. I've attached a screenshot from the WHMCS client area for reference.

    These screenshots look good.

    Is there any reason for not publishing the module on the WHMCS marketplace?

    That is kind of the go to place for authentic WHMCS modules.

    Thanks for your hard work. Could you add a license to your repo?

  • WiseWise Member

    This looks great, but who are you? I would need much more information on your company, people in order to trust and integrate.

    It’s not just whmcs, it’s a marketplace in its own right by the look of it. Or at least aiming to be.

    There are other WHMCS Module which I can purchase in one-time/monthly flat fee & can directly sell to my end customer from your mentioned service provider. Why would I go through you & give you 5% commission ?

    Hello,
    You don't need to pay us a 5% commission. We take the commission from the providers.

    If Caasify goes ever out of business you won't be able to gain access the VPS servers you clients ordered (or your clients) as they are orderd through Caasify accounts..

    • Module should work with website hosting company account instead of Caasify
    • The Module must be listed in WHMCS Market place then there is chance of using it..

    The module is between your whmcs and caasify, not any of the providers. If caasify goes down, the VPs will still work I would think, but the module allowing your clients to control in whmcs would be broken. I’m presuming the VPs are created in your own account and not in a separate caasify account, as if it’s the latter you Rodger your clients using this solution.

    Acme Inc. would be the web hosting company, Joe would be the client..

    Caasify is used to manage accounts on Vultr, Hetzner, DO.. Setup and teardown VMs, storage, whatever..

    Who's accounts does it manage/control? Acme's? Joe's? Or Caasify's?

    What will happen if/when one of the cloud systems decides they no longer like the payment structure you are taking? Suppose Vultr two years from now decides they are going to pay you 0.5% (or even 0) instead of the 5% you are getting now? How will Cassify handle this? Would Vultr be dropped in a future update since they are no longer paying you?

  • caasifycaasify Member, Patron Provider

    Hello,
    We greatly appreciate your feedback. Rest assured, we're in the final stages of preparation and will soon be releasing it on the WHMCS marketplace. We will probably apply the request today. Also, the license will be updated today. Caasify controls the account but If Caasify goes down, there won't be any problem with the VMs.

    We completely understand your concerns. I'll provide a comprehensive response in my next post.

  • LeviLevi Member

    Provider -> caasify -> reseller

    If midleman goes down - reseller also. Depending not on one but two providers is a risk which is not acceptable. Caasify will be used to scam few people and than close.

    I will save this topic and review it in the year after.

    Sekmes jums!

    Caasify is a marketplace for the hosting industry. We aim to connect web hosting companies with a diverse range of providers. Therefore, Vultr, Hetzner, and others are not the only providers in the Caasify marketplace. Caasify is open to any provider with a data center that meets our stability and performance criteria.

    On the other hand, web hosting companies can also become resellers in this marketplace. This scenario presents a new market opportunity for providers to sell their resources indirectly, eliminating the need for advertisement or customer support.

    If a provider shares its resources on the Caasify marketplace, it can gain access to thousands of potential resellers.

    If the Caasify platform goes down, the VMs won't have any problems.

    @caasify said: Caasify controls the account

    To be fair, you need to put that in README, with a big warning

    This code looks dangerous, https://github.com/caasify/Caasify-WHMCS-Module/blob/afbe41eb1d4d1848bb6ec8ac3cbe047ee14e4cf7/caasifyupdatefunc.php#L65
    You need to verify the integrity of the zip file beforehand

    whats the case when someone opens a support ticket? do we handle the support or who does?

    @caasify said: Caasify controls the account

    No one should do that. You will be seriously fucked if they lock you out for whatever reason.

    Site doesn't even have a proper imprint.

    Personally I wouldn't trust anyone who is hiding his identity behind a newly registered start-up (let alone build my business on it).

    I apologize if my message wasn't good enough.

    To clarify, we do not receive commissions from Hetzner, Vultr, or DigitalOcean. We utilize these providers to enhance the marketplace product and make it more appealing. As you can see, we have several other providers in the marketplace from whom we do receive payment for services rendered.

  • ArrowBoiArrowBoi Member

    hi can u answer my question

  • caasifycaasify Member, Patron Provider

    We appreciate all your questions and feedback. To address them, here's a comprehensive overview of the Caasify marketplace.

    How Does the Caasify Platform Work?
    Caasify serves as a versatile gateway that connects to various API services, facilitating seamless integration with numerous providers. This marketplace has the potential to allow a provider (such as a small data center, a company like Hetzner, or even a specific monitoring software provider) to easily integrate their product into this platform. While we are currently integrated with cloud providers like Hetzner, Vultr, and DigitalOcean, Caasify’s capabilities extend far beyond. Our platform is designed to integrate with any service provider, continually expanding our network.

    How do we earn money?
    As mentioned earlier, as a hosting company, you can use our platform for free, so we will charge providers for the services we offer. Hosting companies are the vendors in our marketplace, and the more vendors we register on our platform, the wider variety of services and prices will be available, potentially attracting more providers to join the marketplace. These providers can sell their resources on the marketplace without the need to provide support and advertise on their own. It is noteworthy to mention that our currently registered providers, including Hetzner, Vultr, and DigitalOcean, are just some of the first renowned providers in the Caasify marketplace, not the entirety of it. We will soon add many more providers and their resources to our marketplace, which will offer a wide range of diversity in services.
    Why should web hosting companies include the Caasify marketplace on their website?
    Web hosting companies often face customer demands for diverse services they may not offer, such as specific hardware, locations, software, or additional services like VPNs, SMS, databases, Kubernetes, etc. Caasify addresses this gap by connecting hosting companies with a wide array of suppliers, enabling them to meet virtually any customer requirement. This expansive service range helps web hosting companies retain customers by fulfilling more of their needs.

    Who are we?
    Hosting companies are unable to meet all of their client's expectations due to a lack of service types and limited diversity. However, hyper scalers like AWS, Azure, and GCP are expanding too quickly and making a significant impact on the market with the incredibly versatile services they offer, even though the prices of the services these hyper scalers offer are significantly more than those that small and medium-sized businesses can afford.
    With these two factors in mind, we founded Caasify in order to satisfy the demand for a variety of services in addition to competitive pricing to attract businesses and startups to the web hosting industry.
    Our credibility is built on the platform we have developed. The Caasify platform covers all aspects of hosting and data center needs, delivering much more than what traditional providers can offer. Our platform is designed to facilitate third-party integrations seamlessly. Data centers can easily connect their resources to the Caasify marketplace via our control panel. Additionally, developers can integrate their own platforms. For example, if a developer has created a monitoring system for virtual machines, it can be integrated into Caasify, allowing customers to enable this system on their VMs and pay a commission for its use.
    In summary, Caasify is more than just a WHMCS module for Hetzner; it’s a comprehensive solution that empowers businesses with a wide array of services, all in one place.

    We recognize that you may be concerned about the risks involved, but we already have methods to handle them, which will be discussed in our next topics. For now, we hope this overview clarifies the value and functionality of the Caasify marketplace. Thank you for your interest and continued support.
    Caasify

    Project looks solid to be honest. And I see what you guys are doing. It facilitates connecting to many providers offering VPS's. There's nothing wrong there

    The major issue here is that all services are ordered via their account. They are merely reselling them. He says he only charges a commission from providers, but also states that he doesn't receive any commissions from the big ones (Hetzner, Vultr, DigitalOcean etc.). So at this point this appears to be a highly speculative business model.

    And if they go out of business, have any unresolved issue with one of the above plattforms etc., you will be locked out and might not be able to transfer anything out. These are definitely huge risks for having the benefit of a integrated control panel.

    Firstly, we apologize for not providing sufficient details about the project.

    Caasify is more than just a WHMCS module for providers like Hetzner—it's also a marketplace for the web hosting industry. Our aim is to attract numerous providers from different fields.

    We're expanding our marketplace to offer a wide variety of services, including UpCloud, Linode, OVH, SMS, S3, databases, Kubernetes, and more. This means that hundreds of providers will offer a diverse range of services beyond just VPS.

    For instance, we're integrating the system with Wasabi for object storage and adding several SMS providers, email providers, machine learning resources, CDNs, and so on.

    While we've showcased five providers in our marketplace, many more are out there. It's not practical for users to register on countless providers' websites, obtain tokens, and input them into the marketplace. Some providers' infrastructure does not even have reselling features; we are directly connected to their systems. However, as a marketplace, Caasify allows products added to it to be sold by all resellers. Allowing users to enter their Hetzner token into the marketplace could result in hundreds of Hetzner products from different providers.

    The interface to take services form multiple hosting operators is a neat concept and I like the reseller angle.

    Thanked by 1caasify
  • Seems interesting but my big concern is, say caasify goes out of business for whatever reason, what happens to the services I purchased through your marketplace?

    Thanked by 1caasify
  • LeviLevi Member

    Is there any safeguards to avoid pump and dump scheme? For example “reseller” orders via caasify 100 servers from hetzner and sends out spam. Hetzner will suspend those 100 servers and will begin to look for responsible entity to stop future abuse. Will it be caasify or reseller?
