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 
4. The actions on domains: status synchronization, transfer and delete x days after expiration are performed with the main WHMCS cron task.

Update Instructions

Essential guidance through the process of updating the module is offered here.

Keep in mind there is a quick and easy option in our client area that will let you upgrade the license of your module to an open source version at any time - and at a lower price!
To take advantage of it, simply use the License Upgrade button located on the product's page and a discounted invoice will be generated automatically.

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 the 'whois.json' file located in '/resources/domains/whois.json'.
