Tips

1. As soon as a domain expires, its status in WHMCS system is synchronized.
2. Transfer synchronization changes domain status to active right after the domain transfer status on EURid server is set to pending.
3. You are able to enter an IP address in to the nameserver field.

Note: Please do not use a colon ':' sign between 'ns1.somedomain.eu' and an IP address. Just leave a 'space' in between.
Example:

ns1.somedomain.eu 176.31.211.16
ns2.somedomain.eu 176.31.211.18 

Common Problems

1. When you have problems with connection, check whether your SELinux or firewall does not block ports.
2. If your firewall is enabled, you need to add your WHMCS server IP address at your EURid panel.

Go to the 'Domain Management' → 'IP Addresses' and add IP address into table 'Allowed IP addresses for Registrar WHOIS'.
Additionally, open up a port 43 in your WHMCS server firewall and restart it.

3. If one of the TLDs you have configured is unavailable, please make sure you have set up the pricing in a default currency.
4. If lookup of any .eu domain returns 'Sorry, your_domain.eu is already taken', you need to modify 'whoisservers.php' file located in 'your_whmcs/include/' folder.

Find line '.eu|whois.eu|Status: AVAILABLE' and replace it with '.eu|whois.eu|AVAILABLE'.
