What is the difference between WHM and WHMCS?

WHM and WHMCS are two completely separate products made by different companies. WHM is a cPanel, LLC product, and it is part of cPanel. WHMCS is made by WHMCS Limited.

WHM provides features to manage your cPanel server, services, and accounts. WHMCS gives automated functionality to account management, including billing services.

WHMCS automates some tasks in WHM; however, they are independent products.

What is Clientexec?

Clientexec is a convenient billing platform explicitly built with small to mid-sized web hosting companies in mind. Top Clientexec features include:

  • Powerful customer and account management
  • Account creation automation
  • Recurring invoicing
  • Server monitoring
  • Integrated help desk
  • Third-party payment processor support
  • Invoice automation
  • Hosting and domain management
  • Billing integrations

Hosting & Domains

Automated provisioning with registrars such as eNom, NameSilo, OpenSRS, NameCheap, and many more, making it easy to set anyone up.

Billing Integrations

What is the difference between WHMCS and Clientexec?

Generally speaking, both services are identical in functionality and what they provide as billing and management software. The general differences are in the interface and additional module functions. 

ClientExec is more beginner-friendly and has an easy-to-use interface that can do what you need with just a few clicks.

WHMCS has a more complex design interface and provides seamless and smooth interface usage. It can be more overwhelming for beginners but offers much more flexibility.

It is important to note that both software support SaaS only. To get you caught up, SaaS, also known as Software As A Service, is a way businesses can give clients access to their software products on a subscription basis.
