Test Mode

WHMCS can be configured for testing purposes by ticking the "TestMode" option when configuring Heart Internet as the registrar. This will point all domain related requests to the test environment provided to you by Heart Internet.

Automatic Registration

WHMCS allows you to setup automatic domain registration on a per extension basis enabling you to use different registrars for different TLDs to give you the flexibility to offer more extensions and always get the best value.

To enable automatic registration, please refer to Configuring Automatic Registration

Automatic Domain Synchronization

The Heart Internet module supports automatic domain synchronization for syncing of expiry dates and status changes for incoming transfers.

To enable this functionality, you need to ensure you have the Domain Sync Enabled in Configuration () > System Settings > Domains or, prior to WHMCS 8.0, Setup > General Settings > Domains. Ensure you have the Domain Sync Cron configured on your system.
