Showcase: Our new, super-flexible order pages for hosting services
For any hosting company, a smooth and friendly order process is vital when you want to sign up new users or sell services to existing customers. When we launched Atomia 15.3 this March, we also launched the beta of Atomia Store, the next generation of our customizable order and signup page.
Here below we will walk you through some of its features, show you screenshots, and give you examples of what you can do with it.
Atomia Store features
Atomia Store does everything our previous order page product did, and much more. It has been designed from the ground up to be modular, flexible and easy to maintain over time, and will be an integral part of Atomia’s cloud hosting platform going forward.
Atomia Store is flexible enough to accommodate any kind of hosting service or product you can think of, including but not limited to: domain names, shared hosting, VPS hosting, SSL certs, cloud storage, hosted blogs, and much more.
- Theme and brand your order pages easily.
- Customize the HTML and CSS to fit your order process and website.
- Localization support.
- Use it as a signup page and product order page.
- Support for adding upsell options in the order process.
- Integrates seamlessly with Atomia’s billing system.
- You can have multiple different order pages on the same Atomia installation.
From order page to billing to provisioned service
Atomia Store ties directly into our billing system, where you define your products. Our billing system also makes sure new orders are provisioned to your infrastructure via our powerful automation software.
All this without you having to do any manual work whatsoever. Once an Atomia installation is in place, it is a fully automated solution all the way from order to provisioning and billing (subscription or usage-based).
Example 1: A signup page for shared hosting
Shared hosting is still an important part of the web hosting industry, and Atomia lets you offer centrally managed, clustered shared hosting. Here is an example of how an order page for shared hosting, including a domain name, can be set up.
You could easily replace these shared hosting packages with something else, for example different types of VPS packages.
Example 2: A signup page for usage-based cloud services
VPS and cloud services are becoming increasingly popular, and Atomia supports cloud hosting based on the powerful, open source OpenStack cloud software. You can configure an Atomia environment to either use pure subscription-based billing (for example paying a set fee every month for a VPS server), or usage-based billing (where you pay only for what you use, like with Amazon Web Services).
The above is an example of a signup page for usage-based cloud hosting. Once signed up, the user can start adding virtual machines, cloud storage, and pay based on usage as they go.
Check out the live demo
We hope you found this showcase informative. What we showed you here was of course only a couple of examples of what is possible. We pride ourselves on having a highly customizable platform, so there is (almost) no limit to what you can do.
Want to give these signup page demos a spin yourself? Go ahead:
Note that these pages are only available for demo purposes. Not all provisioning will be done, but these examples should give you an idea of what you can easily achieve with our new storefront software. As of this writing the signups all lead to a generic Atomia demo control panel, if you go that far (a real production environment would be far more customized).
For your convenience if you want to look closer at the technical nitty-gritty, the Atomia Store code and setup instructions are available on GitHub.
If you would like to know more about the new Atomia Store or about our hosting software in general, please don’t hesitate to contact us. And of course, if you are an existing customer and want to learn more about Atomia Store, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our support or your customer contact person.
