A client contact

Client users may have more than one set of contact information on their account. WHMCS uses this contact information when sending messages from specific systems. For instance, a client contact can be configured as a domain contact, and WHMCS will send all domain related email to the contact instead of the client. The contact object models this extra client contact information.

Client contacts may optionally be configured as sub-accounts. Sub-accounts can log into the WHMCS client area and interact with the client's record and services, given the proper permissions set by the client.
