Activation

You must create an Enom account.

To activate and begin using the Enom registrar module:

  1. Log in to your account on the Enom website.
  2. Enter an identifying name (for example, WHMCS).
  3. Click Generate New API Token.
  4. Copy the generated API token.
  5. Log in to the WHMCS Admin Area.
  6. Go to Configuration () > System Settings > Domain Registrars.
  7. Find Enom in the list.
  8. Click Activate.
  9. Enter your Enom username.
  10. Paste in the API token.
  11. Check Disable IRTP to prevent WHMCS from displaying contact information verification notices.
  12. Check Use Default Nameservers to use Enom’s default nameservers for new registrations, overriding the nameservers in WHMCS.
  13. Click Save Changes.
  14. In your Enom account, go to Resellers > Manage > API and add your server’s IP address. You can find this address in WHMCS at Help () > License Information.
    Before you can begin using the Enom API with your account. you must authorize your server IP address for access to your account. If you do not do this, you will see a Registrar Error Invalid Client IP error.

Test Mode

You can use test mode to simulate domain registration and management function without registering a domain or incurring charges. This can be useful to test WHMCS configurations.

Before you enable Test Mode in WHMCS, you must register on Enom’s Reseller Test environment:

  1. Log in to Enom’s Reseller Test Account.
  2. Click all three links under Test Interface Options to configure the test account.
  3. Generate a test API token.

When you place domain registration orders in WHMCS with test mode active, the domains will appear on your demo Enom account (http://resellertest.enom.com) but the system will not actually register a domain or charge you for it.

.ca Registrations

.ca registrations require additional fields. The Invalid registrant information error is due to problems with the location field.

Instead of entering the full place name, use one of the following province abbreviations:

  • Alberta — AB
  • British Columbia — BC
  • Manitoba — MB
  • New Brunswick — NB
  • Newfoundland and Labrador — NL
  • Northwest Territories — NT
  • Nova Scotia — NS
  • Nunavut — NU
  • Ontario — ON
  • Prince Edward Island — PE
  • Quebec — QC
  • Saskatchewan — SK
  • Yukon — YT

Transfer Pricing

Enom does not allow you to define a domain’s registration term when transferring a domain name.

When configuring pricing for TLDs to transfer using Enom, only configure a one-year transfer price. Set all other transfer prices to -1.00.

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.

Automatic Domain Synchronization

This module supports automatic domain synchronization for syncing expiry dates and status changes for incoming transfers.

To use this, enable Domain Sync Enabled and configure the domain sync task at Configuration () > System Settings > Automation Settings.

Troubleshooting

User not permitted from this IP address

This error message indicates that you have not performed the steps to allow your server’s IP to access your Enom account via the API. This must be done via the Enom website before you can use the integration.

The IP address that you need to authorize is typically the main shared IP address for the server. You can easily find this by checking your WHMCS license’s assigned IP address. If neither of those IP addresses work, Enom can assist you and provide the IP address that they see your connection tests as coming from via a support ticket.

Cannot parse empty response from server/Empty data response from server - Please try again later

This error only occurs if Enom receives an empty response. This isn’t a cURL error: it is an empty response from the Enom API. This indicates that there is a temporary problem with Enom. Trying the command again later should succeed.

Invalid data response from server - Please try again later

This can occur when an unexpected response occurs (for example, a 404 error or other non-XML method). This indicates that there is a temporary problem with Enom. Trying the command again later should succeed.

cURL Error

A standard cURL error indicates a connection issue between your server and Enom’s API. Make certain that your server is able to make cURL calls to the following URLs:

  • Demo Mode — resellertest.enom.com
  • Live Mode — reseller.enom.com

Domain name not found

This error occurs when the domain does not exist in your Enom account. This message will display when a domain transfer is in progress but will automatically disappear when the transfer is complete.
