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 OnlineNIC 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.
OnlineNIC uses port 20001 to communicate via it's API. A common problem is a firewall blocking this port, and therefore blocking communication. If you are experiencing connection issues, check this first.
For a list of error codes and reasons for the OnlineNIC API, refer to OnlineNIC Errors.
