Configurable Package Addon

Latest ReleaseCurrent VersionIncluded in WHMCS
N/AN/ANo

The configurable package addon allows cPanel, WP Squared, and DirectAdmin hosts to offer customizable packages to your clients. You can order this addon for your license in WHMCS Marketplace.

cPanel & WHM version 78 and earlier require root-level access in order to use this addon. For cPanel & WHM version 80 and later, resellers can use the addon if they have the necessary WHM API token permissions.

After purchasing the addon, you can create as many configurable packages as you want, offering just some or all of the configurable options. Hosts often use this to offer common options like requesting a dedicated IP address or choosing the desired number of addon domains.

Configurable Option Names

Configuring configurable options in the Admin Area

You can show clients a display name for options by using the required value|display value format for the option name.

For example:

Disk Space|Your Web Quota

For some systems (for example, DirectAdmin), you must use this format when setting up configurable options (see below). For others, this format is optional.

Using this Addon

WHM Feature Lists

You cannot control or assign feature lists through this addon. In WHMCS, you can only do this through predefined WHM packages. Because of this, you can only use the default feature list for accounts that have configurable packages.

IP Addresses

You can use this addon to assign unique IP addresses to accounts. However, you cannot use it to revert an account to the server’s shared IP address.
