The e-commerce.

Using Osommerce to sell hosting


Recommended Posts



I remember seeing a live-shop here where the person was selling Hosting services and used OsCommerce. Does anyone know this sites address ? I think it was primarily a web design site . I am selling hosting and would like to use the OSc interface so visitors can purchase hosting from me , but i remember this site i saw had been customised to suit .

Id appreciate anyones help

The username is based upon the Domain Name that they will be either registering or transferring. I am utilising the "customer comments" box for that.


The password for the hosting account is the password they use when they create their account...


I am still coding it up to allow for recurring payments, and also a better way to collect the "Domain Name" they want to use. My thought for that was to put in a textbox "option" on the bottom of each hosting account...I did have it that way previously but then upgraded to a newer snapshot and lost the functionality - and it's a real pain to do (there is a contribution)...


It works quite well, the only problem being upgrades for example from a base hosting account to the next hosting account...and of course the recurring (monthly) payments...

That would be me :)


Ive been developing osCommerce into a Hosting system, although i have partly removed the system from the site, as i have moved to the new autopilot system.


I am still developing the osC Hosting system however and will release it in a couple of months, once its completed :)

I have been trying to configure osc to sell hosting, domain names and webdesign services but has been difficult for me to make payment plans, and to get my domain name scripts to interface with osc. it looks like alpinehosting.net has almost everything i have been trying to do. Could you help me out with your mods to get a good payment system? How are you reselling domain names? i am using onlinenic Template 3.0


Thanks :)

It's a Zoo in Here, Literaly...
