Control Panel Rebranding for Resellers

HEXONET's Control Panel is whitelabel and many reseller's rebrand it with their own logo, style, and most importantly, their own URL. So instead of the URL showing as "https://account.ispapi.net" (our "white label" URL), a reseller's customers can access a branded control panel like "https://account.resellersdomainname.com". This page contains the steps to rebrand the Control Panel with a reseller's own URL / domain name. Existing branded resellers should go to our migration page for more information.

Submission and Setup Cost

HEXONET reserves the right to rebrand and use the Control Panel with a reseller's own domain name. Please contact your account manager at HEXONET to request this service. Additionally, depending on the complexity of installation and configuration, there could be a nominal one-time setup fee.


Overview

  • DNS Configuration. For the domain name that a reseller wishes to use, an A record for "account.yourdomain.com" must pointed to our Control Panel server's IP address: 84.200.110.110
  • Control Panel HTTPS only. You as the reseller must provide an SSL certificate (see below) or agree to pay for one that HEXONET will procure.
  • Optionally, if you wish to use their own logo image for a custom login screen, please see the instructions below.


SSL Certificate

Resellers can purchase a SSL certificate from HEXONET. If you already have an SSL certificate to use, we will require ssl certificate files from you. Please be aware that some types of SSL certificates may not work with the Control Panel:

  • OPTION 1: Purchase SSL certificate from HEXONET. This is the easiest and the cost of the SSL certificate will be added to the one-time setup fee.
  • OPTION 2: Preferred SSL certificate files for the domain name to submit:
    • Private Key (.key file). Please notice we require the private key, therefore, we recommend that the certificate be used exclusively for the Control Panel.
    • Certificate (.crt file)
    • CA-Cert/Intermediate-Cert (.ca file). This file is optional if the data is included in the .crt file.
  • OPTION 3: Alternate SSL certificate file submission:
    • A single certificate keystore (.pfx) file (preferably you should convert to pfx file into a the .key, .crt, and .ca files and submit under OPTION 2.
    • Note: This file might be passphrase protected, if so, you must also provide us with the passphrase.
       

Please provide the hostname (ie. account.resellersdomainname.com) and ensure the SSL certificate is valid the hostname. For instance, if you want to use a subdomain for your branded control panel, the SSL certificate must be for that subdomain (or wildcard). Also for wildcard subdomain certificates (*.yourdomain.com) any additional depths of a hostname (like *.www.yourdomain.com) will not work.

Branding and Style

A. Login Screen Logo: For those providing SSL certificates, the reseller's logo can be displayed on the customer login screen.

  • JPG or PNG format
  • Max size is 250 by 50 pixels

B. Custom Styling and Branding for Control Panel

Login to your account on the Control Panel and navigate to Reseller Settings > Interface Settings. There you will be able to change edit styles and colors to match your brand, as well as, upload a logo. For your convenience, the link to the branding section of Control Panel is https://account.hexonet.net/token=ANYTOKEN/#/control-panel-branding
