To activate and begin using the Namecheap registrar module, follow the steps below:

- Navigate to Setup > Products/Services > Domain Registrars
- Locate Namecheap in the list
- Click the Activate button
- Enter your Namecheap API credentials
- Click Save Changes to complete the process
- Namecheap's API is IP restricted.
- Therefore to use the Namecheap API, you must first open a ticket with them and request they allow your server IP address access to use your Namecheap account via the API.
- You can find the IP you need them to whitelist by navigating to Help > License Information within your WHMCS admin area.
WHMCS can be configured for testing purposes by ticking the "TestMode" option when configuring Namecheap as the registrar. This will point all domain related requests to the test environment provided to you by Namecheap.
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 Namecheap 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 Setup > General Settings > Domains and ensure you have the Domain Sync Cron configured on your system.
