Registrar TLD & Pricing Sync
Import TLDs from your domain registrar for faster initial setup of TLDs and verification of prices. Perform a synchronization at any time to easily review and compare your current selling prices with cost prices from your registrar, as well as view and import TLDs that you are not currently selling. Sync options include automatically applying either a percentage or fixed monetary amount based markup with optional rounding to a number of your choice. Initial support includes Enom and all Logicboxes powered registrars, and developer documentation has been made available for integration into 3rd party and custom registrar modules. Learn more...
Cron Task Reporting
Get deeper insights into the actions and events that occur during automated cron tasks to give you a more complete picture of what's happened, and provide a faster and more convenient way to resolve things when they go wrong. New datapoints include information such as the invoices that are generated, invoices that have been attempted for capture, services that have been suspended or terminated and more. In the case of actions which involve communication with remote systems, the recorded data will indicate the success or failure of the action, and in the case of errors, provide the error message and direct shortcuts to allow you to easily resolve and retry the action.

As well, if removal is not performed and the module remains in your installation, an email will be generated to all full admins so that further investigation can be performed. An inspection will be performed for the following modules:
