Blesta Direct Provisioning

The Blesta Direct Provisioning module is a simple module that can create, terminate, suspend and unsuspend servers with a direct login bridge between Blesta and VirtFusion.

How it works

When a customer orders a server, they use the standard ordering system of Blesta but don't have all the confusing options of choosing a root password, operating system etc... they just order and make payment.

Once payment is complete, they have an option to directly login to VirtFusion to set up their server.

Which takes them straight to the setup page.
