Domain reg'd before being approved


Recommended Posts

Did I miss something in my setup? The last time someone ordered a domain it was held until I approved it, this morning I received an order for hosting and a domain the hosting account is awaiting approval but the domain got registered right away. The visitor made a payment via paypal. This order turned out to be fraud but why did the domain get registered right away? I'm running 3.7.2 what settings should I check to make sure this doesn't happen again?

Automatically create the account as soon as an order is placed

Automatically create the account as soon as the first payment is received

Automatically create the account when you manually accept a pending order

Do not automatically setup this account

Accepting Pending Orders


Whenever an order is placed in WHMCS, it comes in as a pending order. To view pending orders, go to Orders > List Pending Orders. From there you can accept or deny the order.

It is important to note that while all orders are pending until activated, the items in that order - hosting accounts and domains - will be automatically activated based on your auto setup options and auto registration options. So if you have them set for instantly upon payment that will be done while the order remains pending. This is to ensure you manually review each order you get.

Since you do have 72 hours to cancel a domain name and get a refund (at RC anyway, not sure about enom) would it be more trouble just to get the refund for this fraud purchase, or would it be more work to manually approval each registration each time?
