  5. Certain tax jurisdictions impose tax rates with more than 2 decimal place precision. So in WHMCS 8.0, we've increased the number of supported decimal places in tax rates to 3 decimal places. For example, in New York, the City Sales Tax rate is 4.5%, NY State Sales and Use Tax is 4% and the Metropolitan Commuter Transportation District surcharge is 0.375%, giving a total Sales and Use Tax of 8.875 percent. For tax rates that do not require 3 decimal places, we will continue to display them...View the full blog post

  8. We know that Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) are important to you and your customers. We're improving IDN support in WHMCS 8.0 to allow registration and transfers. Internationalized domain namesWhat's an IDN? If a domain name includes a language-specific script, like Hebrew, Arabic, or Chinese, or some types of Latin characters, it's probably an IDN. Normally, domain names are limited to ASCII characters, but some applications, like WHMCS, can work with specialized technology to allow...View the full blog post

  11. Email remains the most important and widely used method of communication for businesses and their consumers. The latest data suggests over 300 billion emails are sent every single day. That's over 200 million emails every minute, and almost 3.5 million emails every second. With so many emails being sent, you need to do whatever you can to give your emails the best chance of reaching the intended recipient. One way to help ensure that is having reliable email delivery and that's exactly what...View the full blog post
  12. WHMCS 8.0 introduces a new look for the default admin area theme. In this blog post, I share some of the stand out changes. The WHMCS admin area has over 125 interface pages, each often containing multiple sub-interfaces through the use of modals, popups and more. In this release we've delivered a number of enhancements to the theme to help make use of WHMCS more efficient, and you more productive. Slimmer navigationOne of the most noticable differences will be the new slimmer look to the...View the full blog post
  13. We're always looking for ways to improve performance and keep the WHMCS codebase current. In WHMCS 8.0, that includes updates to PHP and its dependencies. For most WHMCS users, this won't change anything. If you maintain custom code like modules, hooks, or integration scripts, you may need updates to keep things working seamlessly. If you use anything from third-party vendors, check with them to make sure they're up-to-date. So, how do you verify and update your code? Here's the rundown of...View the full blog post
  14. With over 380 votes, the ability to access and manage multiple accounts using a single login is the most requested feature we had yet to deliver, and in WHMCS 8.0, we've done just that. Behind the scenes, this is a significant and fundamental change to the way we manage user authentication in WHMCS, but on the frontend, it's a simple, powerful and flexible way for customers to manage and grant access to their account to other users. UsersIn WHMCS 8.0, everybody who can login to the WHMCS...View the full blog post

  17. The Domain TLD and Pricing Import tool can save you hours of time by automating the setup and management of your domain pricing. You can use it to setup TLDs for the first time, import new TLDs, or update and synchronize pricing for the TLDs you are already selling, at any time.

  19. 8.0 is right around the corner and yesterday, we sat down (virtually!) with our Founder and CEO Matt Pugh to get the low down on what you can expect in WHMCS 8.0.

Version 8.0 is going to be the next Major version of WHMCS, and the team is putting the final preparations to it now as we speak. A major version increment such as this gives us the...View the full blog post
  20. Benjamin Franklin famously wrote "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." I propose adding VAT rate changes to that list of inevitabilities. Occasionally the rate of sales tax businesses are required to charge will vary over the years. In this blog post I'll demonstrate how to handle such VAT rate changes in WHMCS. Preparing for VAT Rate ChangesFirst a little planning. The tax rate is determined at the point an invoice is generated, so it's important to be...View the full blog post

  23. It's easier than you think for your online accounts to be compromised. From using the same password on more than one site, to downloading compromised software from the Internet, to clicking on links in email messages, account breaches can happen to anyone. Two-Factor Authentication can help keep bad guys out, even if they discover your password. And that's why I recommend everyone who reads this article enables Two-Factor Authentication not just for WHMCS, but for every online service they...View the full blog post
  24. In light of the current global situation, a lot of businesses have suddenly found themselves running their businesses and managing their teams remotely. As countries start to lift lockdown and workplaces start to open up, you may be considering adopting this way of working as part of your regular operations. Here at WHMCS, while many of our team normally work from our Houston office, we also have team members working from their home offices in the UK and beyond. Over the years of running a...View the full blog post
  25. Aren't they the same thing? Even experts can have a difficult time differentiating between customer service and customer support. But, it's essential to get right if you're serious about offering your customers the best possible experience. For most companies, there is going to be an overlap between the two, where a customer support team will be on hand to resolve a short-term technical issue while customer services is tasked with build long-lasting relationships and partnerships. Most...View the full blog post
