Selling domains

Configure domain

Before you can offer domains registration for your clients, you will need to setup and attach a domain registrar to top level domain.

You can either use a Email one (the domains are not setup via BoxBilling on such a case, and you will need to register them at your registrar manually), or use a supported domain registrar.

Currently we support these domain registrars:

  • ResellerClub

To create your own domain registrar see :ref:`extension-domain-registrar` section.

Domain pricing

All domain management and setup can be done via Configuration > Domain registration page under your Administration area.

After you have setup your domain registrar, you will be able to setup new TLD's (top level domains) via Configuration > Domain registration > New TLD tab.

You should set domain prices for actions of registration, renewal and transfer. Your domain renewal price most of the time is the same as the registration price and domain transfer fee is by default 0 (unless you wish to charge for this action).

The Operations list shows the allowed operations that the client will be able to perform on the domain, so feel free to untick any operations you wish to reserve for the administrators only.

Domain registrars

ResellerClub

Configuration

  • Login to the ResellerClub control panel (the url will be in the email you received when you signed up with them) and then go to Settings > Personal Information > Primary Profile - the value you need to note is the Reseller ID.
  • Still in the ResellerClub control panel, go to Settings -> API and enter the IP address of the server where BoxBilling is installed to authorize it for API access
  • Now, login to your BoxBilling Administration Area Go to Configuration > Domain Registration > Registrars > ResellerClub Enter the Reseller ID noted above and password you set when you signed up.
  • Then click Update
  • And that's it, BoxBilling will now be able to communicate with your ResellerClub account to automate domain registration & management for your clients.

Common issues

An unexpected error has occurred

This usually indicates that the login details are missing, please ensure these have been entered under Configuration > Domain registration > Registrars > ResellerClub.

CURL Error: 7 - couldn't connect to host

This error message indicates that you haven't yet allowed your servers IP to access your ResellerClub account via the API. have to do this in the Settings > API section of the LogicBoxes control panel before you can use the integration.

The IP you need to authorize is typically the main shared IP of the server, usually most easily found from the IP your BoxBilling license is assigned to, but if you're unsure or neither of those IPs work, then ResellerClub can assist and advise you of the IP they see your connection tests as coming from via a support ticket.
