Last year we worked hard on a new, responsive clientarea for WeFact Hosting. We have developed several new functionalities as well and implemented many optimizations and improvements.
After a long development time and beta versions we are happy to announce the launch of WeFact Hosting Version 4 today!
During the development of the new clientarea we detained the following three core values: (i) a modern layout and responsiveness, (ii) support for all service types and more functionalities and (iii) easiness of custom code (and always be able to update WeFact Hosting).
The new clientarea allows your customers to see their invoices and pay them, view their purchased services, modify the WHOIS domain information, modify the domain DNS, log directly in the hosting control panel (single sign-on), download SSL certificates or create a helpdesk ticket.
Different colors, own CSS and own pages
We developed the new clientarea in such a way that it’s easy to make changes, from simple color changes (which can be done in the backoffice) as CSS changes or complete themes and page refinements. All those changes won’t conflict with a future update, because custom codes can be down in a seperate “custom” folder. The FAQ contains lots of information about changing things in the clientarea. Besides the FAQ we also created documentation and example files for extended code customizations, click here to go to the developers section.
Responsive order form
The current order form has remained almost unchanged. However, the code structure has changed to be able to make the order form responsive. This means the order form is now usable on mobile phones and different screen widths.
Custom fields for clients, invoices and estimates
Previously custom fields were only available for clients. Now, with this new version, you can also add custom fields for your invoices and estimates. You can choose yourself whether or not you show this information on the invoice PDF or in the invoice e-mail. Click here to read more about the custom fields.
Lots of new commands in the new API
The API is heavily used and makes it possible to automate processes from different software products and fetch or add information in WeFact Hosting. We therefore put a lot of effort in adding more and more commands, and will continue doing this. Another great addition to the API is the ‘created’ and ‘modified’ parameter for each record. This allows you to retrieve only changed data from a certain date.
And a lot more…
We have made lots of improvements in the integrations of DirectAdmin, Plesk, cPanel, PowerDNS and domain registrars. We also made sure we now have retina icons and a new menu in the backoffice, to give it a better and cleaner look. Besides all the new features we made over 200 improvements.
We believe that version 4 with the new clientarea, allows you to offer an additional service to your customers and your own processes can run faster, better and more reliable!
