Q: How do I link directly to a package in iPanel v3.5+ or iHost 2.5+?


iPanel v3.5's package selection page requests both the package and payment period from the user in a single step, so your URL must include both the package ID and the payment period as follows:

PACKAGEID should specify the ID number of the package to which you're linking. The package ID can be obtained by editing a package and looking in your browser's URL field -- the end of the URL should show "&id=XXXX", where XXXX is the ID number for the package.

PERIOD should specify any one of the following:

monthly quarterly biannually annually years2 years3 years4 years5 years6 years7 years8 years9 years10

So for example, to order package ID number 10 on a quarterly renewal basis, the URL might be:

Note that you can also create custom HTML forms to allow the user to pick his own payment period for a specific package. For example:

<form method="POST" action=""> <input type="hidden" name="packageid" value="PACKAGEID" /> <select name="period" size="1"> <option value="monthly">Monthly</option> <option value="quarterly">Quarterly</option> <option value="biannually">Biannually</option> <option value="annually">Annually</option> <option value="years2">2-Year</option> <option value="years3">3-Year</option> <option value="years4">4-Year</option> <option value="years5">5-Year</option> <option value="years6">6-Year</option> <option value="years7">7-Year</option> <option value="years8">8-Year</option> <option value="years9">9-Year</option> <option value="years10">10-Year</option> </select><br /> <input type="submit" value="Order this package" /> </form>
