HELM2WHMCS Migration Tool

HELM2WHMCS Migration Tool 1

Once upon a time, I used to own a web hosting company and we used to use the HELM hosting control panel, which was very popular among Windows hosts.

One day Helm got bought out by Parallels, and that was the end of Helm, although lots of hosts kept on using it for many years.

Here is a little tool I knocked up for migrating customers from the HELM 3 hosting control panel over to the WHMCS billing system.

If you have a lot of clients to migrate this will save you a lot of time manually entering the data. It runs on Railo Lucee, which is the only requirement, and It only migrates client data, not the actual websites or packages etc.

I have open sourced the app and It can be downloaded from github here.

If you need any support in getting this tool running or some custom functionality added, then feel free to contact me for a quote.

  • Field mapping Map your HELM fields to WHMCS fields, including custom fields Store as JSON for future use
