Fleche.gif Installation

The addon is included by default in the installation package of the registrar module since version 2.6


Fleche.gif Activation and settings

In the administration area, section "Setup"> "Addons Modules", you will find NETIM TLD Manager in the list of modules

Netim tld mgr addons.png


Click on "Activate" then "Configure"


Netim tld mgr configure.png

Indicate whether the features below will be enabled by default when adding an extension

"Enable DNS management for new tlds"
"Enable Email Forwarding for new tlds"
"Enable ID protection (if applicable) for new tlds" 

Indicate margin rates for sales price proposals when adding an extension

"Registration default margin (%)"
"Renewal default margin (%)"
"Transfer default margin (%)"
"Restore default margin (%)"

The rate should be considered as follows:
If the sale price is 100, 30% of margin will be equal to 30. The selling price will then be proposed at 130

Indicate the rounding method on prices

"Round pricing to"

A value of 1 indicates the rounding to an integer
A value of 0.99 indicates the rounding to 99 cts (1.99, 2.99, ...)
A value of 0.50 indicates the rounding to 50 cts (1.50, 2.0, 2.5, ...)
A value of 0.1 indicates the rounding to 10 cts (1.10, 1.20 1.30, ...)

"Rounding pricing method"

Indicate the access control to the module according to the different user groups

Check the groups whose users of this module depend on.

 By default, check "Full administrator"


As soon as the parameters are saved and if the user is part of an authorized group, the module is accessible in the "Addons" menu.

Fleche.gif Active extensions

The main page of the module displays the list of currently active extensions assigned to NETIM for auto registration.

The 4 types of paid operations (registration, transfer, renewal and restore) are displayed with:

  • your current cost price in EUR
  • your current cost price in the base currency of WHMCS (if different from the euro)
  • the corresponding margin rate
Caution 
The restore prices will only be available for WHMCS versions> = 7.5
The feature calculates the selling price based on the annual renewal price + the redemption fee
 
Shaded sections indicate that the operation is not supported by NETIM for the corresponding extension


Prices update

Modify the values of the desired extensions and click on "Update prices".

The prices will then be applied to the selected extensions taking into account their periods (see # Considerations)

As part of the restore price (WHMCS> = 7.5), the feature calculates the redemption fee based on the indicated price - the annual renewal price


Prices export

The values of the table will be exported as a .csv file for download

Fleche.gif Addition of extensions

Adding an extension is done in 1 click !

Netim tld mgr add.png


NETIM offers more than 900 extensions, so the display is done in the form of a list by letter.

If an extension is already active, it will be displayed and already checked.


The 4 types of paid operations (registration, transfer, renewal and restore) are displayed with:

  • your current cost price in EUR
  • your current cost price in the base currency of WHMCS (if different from the euro)
  • your sell price proposal, in the WHMCS base currency, calculated according to the module setting (margin rate and rounding method)
Caution 
The restore prices will only be available for WHMCS version > = 7.5

Shaded sections indicate that the operation is not supported by NETIM for that particular extension


Adding an extension

Update the prices if needed and click on "Add selected tlds".


The extensions will then be added to WHMCS with the following information:

  • NETIM as auto registration
  • Support for DNS management and Email forwarding according to the parameterization of the module
  • The ID protection support if available and according to the parameterization of the module
  • Support for EPP code if available for the extension
  • Grace and redemption periods if available for the extension and according to NETIM values
  • Prices for registration, renewal and transfer based on the indicated price and extension periods (see # Considerations)
The addition of an extension is thus achieved with the necessary settings for immediate activation.

Fleche.gif Check settings

In order not to have any problems with customers requests, it is essential that the extensions are well parameterized.

Which features are available? What are the registration and renewal periods?

This feature of the module allows to check all active extensions with NETIM.


Netim tld mgr check.png


For each error and the given parameter, differences between the values in WHMCS and NETIM are displayed in the table with:

  • the extension
  • the parameter having an error
  • the value in WHMCS
  • the value at NETIM
  • the fix proposal
Examples
For the first row of the table
The .COM renewal for 6 years is not enabled in WHMCS whereas it is available at NETIM
 
For the last row of the table
The EPP code management for .NET is not enabled in WHMCS whereas it is available at NETIM

Select the errors to be fixed and click on "Fix errors"

Fleche.gif Considerations

Pricing

All prices are displayed and taken into account on an annual basis.


Periods

Each extension has different periods for registration and renewal from 1 to 10 years.

When adding an extension or updating the prices, prices are calculated and recorded according to the periods of the extension.

Each term is then calculated by multiplying the annual price by the corresponding number of years.

The transfer period is 1 year. Terms ranging from 2 to 10 years are disabled systematically

Caution
WHMCS inappropriately handles renewal and transfer periods because the registration period determines the others.
If year 1 is deactivated, it will not be possible to activate it for renewal and transfer.
Therefore, it is currently impossible to manage a registration period for 2 to 10 years and a renewal for 1 to 10 years


Exchange rate

As NETIM invoices in euro, the module performs a conversion of cost prices in the base currency.

The rate taken into account is either:

  • obtained in WHMCS if the EUR currency is defined
  • obtained online via a foreign exchange webservice


Data source

Data related to prices and extensions are retreived directly from NETIM

In order to speed up the page loadings, these data are only downloaded once a day.
