cPanel & WHMCS have announced a collaboration. The two companies would work together to offer the most comprehensive web hosting billing and control panel solution on the market.
They said in a joint statement:
These two web hosting industry leaders are coming together. With the goal of creating a more integrated solution for web hosting providers, cPanel, Inc., and WHMCS Ltd. have recently announced a new partnership to deliver a more cohesive solution that includes both control panel functionality and billing.
As of now, web publishers and hosting companies have to install and manage them separately even though they are both used to handle individual hosting accounts.
