Additional domain fields

Additional domain fields are mandatory for many domain extensions that require additional information like a company number, a VAT number, personal ID number to register a domain. 

In HostBill, additional information are called “Extended attributes” and are defined the components settings of an extension.

At Netim, such information is called “additional domain fields”

Define additional domain fields

Netim supports more than 1,000 extensions and needs a flexible way to manage the fields and avoids a difficult maintenance. That’s why we provide a package to be imported …

Convert and Import fields

  1. At a first step, ensure that you have the last package of additional domain fields.
    They are installed in the directory of the registrar module in subdirectory additional_domain_fields. Check the version in the file VERSION.txt
  2. Netim provides the fields in a .json format which is different from the HostBill’s one. Thus, it is needed to make a conversion
    Call the following URL:

    Replace [tld] by the extension to import (without the leading dot).
    Replace [lang] by the language to be used for labels and descriptions. The value must match one of the additional fields language (en, es, fr) or any of your translations.

    Then, a new file will be created in the directory as [tld].extended.json

  3. Import the fields in the extension settings at Settings > Products & Services, click your Order Page for domain services, click on the desired extension, then tab Components

    Click on Import

    And select your converted json file

  4. If you are not satisfied by our translations or if you have another language, feel free to update or translate them. You can proceed in our language files or in the imported fields.
