Extending WHMCS NameSpinner

Recommended Posts

I am developing a registrar module specific to a single TLD, and it seems that lookup provider idea was based on the assumption that the registrar module would handle availability checks for all TLDs. 

So, I need to find a way to either:

1) Have WHMCS standard NameSpinner do the lookups but for some TLDs, call the module CheckAvailability function

2) Have the registrar module handle all the lookups, but calling NameSpinner when outside its own remit. 

Is any of those options feasible ?

Besides the interoperability with other TLDs/registrars module issue above, even for a single TLD deployment the CheckAvailability functions are not working. The availability check never ends. The current CheckAvailability function looks like this:


function registrobr_CheckAvailability($params)
    // registrar configuration values

    $target = ($params['TestMode'] == 'Beta') ?  'https://beta.registro.br/v2/ajax/avail/raw/' : 'https://registro.br/v2/ajax/avail/raw/' ;

    // availability check parameters
    $searchTerm = $params['searchTerm'];
    $tldsToInclude = $params['tldsToInclude'];

    array_push ($tldsToInclude,$params['tld']);
    $tldsToInclude = array_unique($tldsToInclude);
    if (!set($searchTerm)) {
        $searchTerm = $params['sld'];
    logModuleCall('registrobr', 'Avail before ResultsList', $searchTerm , $tldsToInclude,'','');
    $results = new ResultsList();

    logModuleCall('registrobr', 'Avail after ResultsList', $searchTerm , $tldsToInclude,'','');
    foreach ($tldsToInclude as $tld) {
        try {
            $ch = curl_init();
            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $target . $searchTerm . $tld);
            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 2);
            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 1);
            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 100);
            $response = curl_exec($ch);
            logModuleCall('registrobr', 'Avail after curl', $target . $searchTerm . $tld , $response,'','');
            if (curl_errno($ch)) {
                throw new \Exception('Connection Error: ' . curl_errno($ch) . ' - ' . curl_error($ch));
            $result = json_decode($response, true);
            if ($result === null && json_last_error() !== JSON_ERROR_NONE) {
                        throw new \Exception('Bad response received from Ajax Avail');
            $searchResult = new SearchResult($searchTerm, $tld);
            switch ($result['status']) {
                case 0:
                case 2:
                case 1:
                case 3:
                case 5:
                case 6:
                case 7:
                case 9:
                case 4:
                case 8:
        } catch (\Exception $e) {
            return array(
                'error' => $e->getMessage(),
    return $results;

None of the log entries that logModuleCall would trigger ever happens. So there is something else happening in WHMCS before that is causing this.
