Checking on this, it looks like it may have been removed

Great another feature gone. Maybe they should update the docs with a warning banner that it was removed.

WHMCS limitations

Freenom offers three types of domains:

  • Paid Domains These are all domain names in every top level domain that are sold for a fixed price. These include not only one TK, CF, GA, GQ and ML, but also COM, NET, EU and many many others.
  • Special Domains These are all domain names in Freenom's top level domains, such as TK, CF, GA, GQ and ML that are sold for a premium rate.
  • Free Domains These are all domain names in Freenom's top level domains, such as TK, CF, GA, GQ and ML and are provided at no charge. (Not supported by Freenom API)

WHMCS is a great system and works fine with all Paid Domains. However, it does not support free domains.

Furthermore Special Domains are not supported in WHMCS at this stage. All Freenom accounts have support for Special Domains, but we have this disabled by default. Please contact your account manager to enable this support. Be careful: please do not use Special Domains with the same account as you use with your WHMCS install.

In short: WHMCS works fine with regular paid domains: domains sold at a fixed price.

Now I'm curious. Does someone at WHMCS test from time to time each module to see if its still working or they just remove one when multiple people report its not working anymore?

And this does not even have to be done by a human person. I would assume that a software company, even a tiny one can create some automation and scripts that test hundreds if not thousands of actions on a demo/live install on each release. You would then fire all those tests prior each release to see if its detecting issues. The rest would be done by human beta testers.

my suspicion is that they assume everything works unless told otherwise... so support tickets issues might encourage a module to be specifically tested; when a feature is added/tweaked by the developers in a module, then it may again be tested... but a generic regular testing of each module can't be occurring - otherwise they should be picking up issues far faster than they currently are.
