Domain Importer Addon

Introduction

The Domain Importer Addon provides a user-friendly interface allowing for importing your existing Domain Portfolio from HEXONET / RRPproxy into your WHMCS system.

The Addon automatically creates new clients out of the registrant contact assigned to the domains if not yet existing. Alternatively you can also specify a single Client Account that is then used as Import Target. Provide Domain Names to Import by copy’n’paste.

The Domain Importer Addon then finally connects to the respective Registrar Module to import the given domain names.

Features

  • Domain Import from HEXONET / RRPproxy Registrar System
  • Regular Domain Imports
  • IDN Domain Imports (IDN Language auto-detection, if supported)
  • Premium Domain Imports
  • Bulk Import into specified existing WHMS Client Account
  • Bulk Import by auto-creating Client Accounts based on Registrant Data
  • Import of additional domain field settings (if supported by Registrar Module)

… and MORE!

Incompatibility Notice

In case you have domains with active Trustee Service / Local Presence Service, be aware of that WHMCS itself doesn’t support this Domain Addon. This finally means that such costs can’t be invoiced in WHMCS. There’s an open feature request you can upvote here to get it finally considered for integration in WHMCS.

Still, these domains are included in the import, but highlighted as follows:

Local Presence Service

Preparatory Work

Care about:

  • Domain Pricing Configuration
  • if you offer Premium Domains: Premium Domain Configuration (incl. Pricing)
  • Domain Add-On Pricing Configuration
  • Assign Domain Add-Ons to the TLDs of interest that support them

Installation

Requirements

  • WHMCS version 8.0 or higher
  • Find the supported Registrar Modules linked above.

Download & Unpack

Download the ZIP archive including the latest release version here.

Copy the zip archive’s contents to your WHMCS System’s root folder.

Now you can activate this addon by navigating to Setup > Addon Modules > CNIC Domain Importer to activate and configure it as described below.

NOTE: The WHMCS root directory is the folder that contains the “configuration.php” file.

Addon Activation

Within the WHMCS Admin area, go to Setup > Addon Modules

configuration

Activate the “CNIC Domain Importer” Add-on, give the module “Full Administrator” Access Control right.

Import Wizard

In Admin Area navigate to Addons > ISPAPI Domain Importer and fill out the import form to fit your needs. Import Wizard

First copy’n’paste your List of Domains into the text area and choose the Registrar to import from.

If you wish to import to an existing WHMCS client account, please check Import to and provide the ID of that client account in WHMCS.

Otherwise, we will automatically create client accounts based on the domains registrant data with a random password set. Clients are automatically created with the given payment method and currency. The client can finally use the WHMCS build-in password reset functionality to gain access to his account.

Now, you’re ready. Click on the “Start Import” button to get this started. The import process will import the list of domains sequentially. The progress will be displayed.
