Question

Hi, I am planning on running a single installation of whmcs/whm/cpanel in order to sell domains on two websites.

 

Website A is business orientated and website B is gaming related.

 

Does anyone know of any way that I would be able to offer only a selection of my avalible domains to each?

 

For example, on website A I would like to only display general, country and business orientated TLDs while hiding silly TLDs like ".cool". On website B I would like to only display silly/gaming related domains like ".win", ".team", ect...

 

This would significantly decrease availability checking time as well as only list suggestions relative to the customer.

 

Any suggestions on how to achieve this would be greatly appreciated.

my initial thought on this would be to have them as two separate installations - that would be by far the simplest way to have generic TLDs on one site; gaming TLDs on the other and avoid the need for any serious modifications to be written... but I suspect you are going to tell me that you don't want to do that. :)

 

there wouldn't be a way to do what you want solely from the admin settings - so you're then looking at modifying the processes via action hooks and/or template edits... and how complicated that needs to be will depend upon exactly what you need it to do (and where).

 

for example, at the most basic level, you could use the integration code to create a lookup (on either site) for specific TLDs... that would work fine, but there'd be an issue with suggestions because there is only one installation and hence one set of suggestion TLDs... due to checking times, you can't have too many suggestion TLDs, perhaps 10-20... so I suppose you could choose 10 suggestion TLDs for each site and hide the other ten not applicable to that site from the results... but you wouldn't save much time as upto 20 lookups would still be performed.

 

maybe if you could use an API solution for lookups, that could give you slightly more flexibility - though that would likely be determined by your registrar choice.

      Hey everyone.  I'm still relatively new to the hosting biz and some of my clients are wanting to add multiple websites to their existing hosting package.  I understand that add-on domains would be the best way to handle this.  (But please correct me if I am wrong) 
      I am looking for input on how to manage this from both a technical as well as business perspective. 
      If the client is purchasing a new domain on their existing hosting account, they will be storing files there and taking up more disk space from the server.  Accordingly, I should find a way to recoup the cost of the additional storage expense.  I was looking for a way in WHMCS to sell add-on domains as perhaps a product add-on to an existing hosting account.  This is simple enough, but if the client purchases an additional domain registration, I can't see how i could also require them to purchase this add-on (extra $ to make up for the additional disk space).  
      Alternatively, I thought about offering additional blocks of disk storage.  Package comes with X MB, and for $X, get an additional X MB of storage.  Has anyone accomplished this?  Is this ill-advised? 
      Ultimately I'm looking for a way to reconcile my bottom dollar against the additional disk space that will be consumed by the sites built upon add-on domains. Does anyone have any suggestions? Best practices? Advice for a new entrepreneur?

      Hello,
      I find the domain checker extension categories useless to say the least!   I know that my clients pretty much NEVER even understand what a ccTLD is or a gTLD etc!
      So they don't even KNOW to click those buttons to show the domain extension they are looking for so my clients just get confused!
      Now, the problem is that what WHMCS considers POPULAR doesn't include my own countries tld extension so now when the client is looking for the cost of my countries tld's they can't find it because they don't think for themselves that they need to click a certain category to display the tld to get the pricing!
      So what they simply do now is enter garbage.tld in to the search field and see what the tld costs in the search results rendering the whole cateories options useless and ifthey happen to enter a domain that actually exists, it doesn't show the price.
      So the only way around this I figured is to enable ALL the options by default to show ALL tld's when the page loads.
      Is this possible and if so, how could I do it?
      Thanks

      Since 7.7 I'm getting email alerts several times a day for transfer and expiration day syncs. Can disable these emails? I like having it going but I don't need messages each time it runs.
