Helm 4 Automated XML API

The Helm 4 XML API has been designed to be used in the provisioning systems of 3rd party billing systems and other external systems.

Helm 4's XML API allows a reseller to hook into essential methods used in every day hosting management. No matter if this is adding customers or creating new domains for clients. If you have an existing billing system it is simple to integrate helm using the XML API, this would give you one central billing system for all your operations. This is ideal if you offer multi-platform hosting or use multiple end user control panels.

All though the API was originally designed for billing systems it has been adapted over time to include more functionality required by webhosts and resellers.
