Whois setting for custom TLD?


Recommended Posts

(Sorry for posting three threads in a row. This is a result of a whole weekend of testing.)


Suppose I add some custom TLD, say .xx (it's actually a country TLD which has its own web-based whois and registration system), how do I set how WHMCS whois setting? Currently it always does a whois on the domain, and always displays the domain as available.


Thanks in advance.

check this file:



where whmcs_dir is your installation directory.


make sure the whois entry or your extension is set up correctly


The entry should look like this:


".com|whois.crsnic.net|No match for"


meaning: ".extension|whois server|available string"


make sure all the info is correct in there.


i hope this helps

I see, so it's that simple.


But what about TLDs which do not provide whois server and only provide web-based interface? Perhaps I need to provide a whois server wrapper for it?


never mind, looking from includes/whoisservers.php, turns out that whmcs also support http-based query. thanks whmcs! :)
