WHMCS module add-ons

 The Realtime Register module has some add-ons that make it easy to use WHMCS. You can also use these add-ons when you move your domains from another registrar to Realtime Register. The add-ons are:

  •  Import domains: This add-on lets you import your existing domains into WHMCS and sync them with Realtime Register.

  •  Sync expiry date and auto-renew status: This add-on lets you update the expiry dates and auto-renew statuses of your domains in WHMCS and Realtime Register.

Import your domains into WHMCS

Do you have domains registered with Realtime Register? You can easily import them to WHMCS and manage them from one place. WHMCS will automatically copy the domain attributes, such as expiry date and status, from Realtime Register. You don’t have to worry about losing any data or settings. WHMCS will also match the domain registrant data with your existing clients, or create new clients for you if no match is found. This way, you can keep track of your clients and their domains in a simple and efficient way.

Keep your expiry dates in sync!

Do you want to make sure that your WHMCS instance has the correct expiry dates for your domains registered with Realtime Register? You can use the sync feature to update the expiry dates from Realtime Register to WHMCS. This will help you avoid any confusion or errors caused by mismatched data. Our sync feature only updates the expiry date and does not affect the “Due date” of your domains. This means that your billing cycle will remain the same as before. You can sync your expiry dates anytime you want with just a few clicks. Sync your expiry dates with Realtime Register to ensure that the data within your WHMCS instance matches the data from Realtime Register. We only sync the expiry date and do not touch the "Due date", which ensure that your billing cycle remains the same as it is right now.

Manage your auto-renew status with WHMCS

WHMCS gives you full control over the renewals of your domain names registered with Realtime Register. You can choose to renew your domains manually or automatically through WHMCS. If you have previously used another billing/automation software or you are new to WHMCS, you may want to change the auto-renew status of your domains at Realtime Register. You can do this easily with WHMCS by clicking on a button. This will change the auto-renew status from TRUE to FALSE at Realtime Register, or vice versa. This way, you can decide how you want to renew your domains and avoid any unwanted charges or renewals.
