Email Notifications

The Email Notifications registrar module lets you work manually with customers’ domain registrations and management. This can occur when using a registrar that does not have an API or that does not integrate with WHMCS.

The module does not connect to any registrar to automatically register, transfer, or make changes to any domains. Instead of automatic connections, it will send an email to predefined contacts alerting them to the requested registration, transfer, or other change. This allows your staff to make the changes manually and update your system. When a client pays a domain registration, transfer, or renewal invoice, the system will send an email to your staff notifying them of the needed manual action.

  • The module uses the PHP mail() function to send these emails.
  • You can specify the staff email addresses to send to in the module configuration at Configuration () > System Settings > Domain Registrars.

Automatic Registration

WHMCS allows you to set up automatic domain registration on a per-extension basis, enabling you to use different registrars for different TLDs.

To enable automatic registration, see Domain Pricing.

Make certain that you select Email from Auto Registration for all TLDs that you wish to sell using this method.
