Reseller web hosting provider Fasthosts Internet released an API which allows resellers to automate new customer signups, create admin tools for end-customers, and process customer orders automatically. Using the API will provide resellers with the ability to have their customers set up hosting and secure domain names directly from their website.
"Fasthosts understands how important an API is to its reseller partners. Having an administrative tool such as this significantly increases the productivity and opportunities for our resellers." Holford said. "The Fasthosts team is confident that current and potential resellers will be very satisfied with the functionality and new capabilities this interface will offer them. Not only will the API make their reseller business easier to manage, but it will provide our resellers with more options that they can implement into their customer care strategy."
Fasthosts has already included the API into its resellers' control panels. The API is accessible using any server side language, and provides full documentation and examples for all API functions. Resellers are also given test scripts as another way to customize the API for their business needs.
