The Realtime Register module comes with add-ons to make it easier to start using Hostfact. When migrating domain names from another registrar, the same add-ons are useable. Realtime Register offers the following add-ons; Import domains and auto-renew status.

Import Domains

Import domains from your Realtime Register account into Hostfact. Domain attributes like expiry date and status will be copied automatically. The importer will match up domain registrant data with existing clients, or create new clients if no match is found.

Auto-renew status

By default, Hostfact handles off all the renewals of domain names by doing a renew manually at a registrar. If you are switching over from another billing/automation software or starting to use Hostfact, it may be convenient that you can change the status at Realtime Register from auto-renew TRUE to auto-renew false with a click on the button.
