Note: Do not discard .gitinore,, LICENSE files.

If you misload files, the modules cannot be found by module WHMCS.

Module Configuration

After uploading the files, from the WHMCS administration panel, go to the System Settings Section,

After saving, your username and current balance will be visible.

Match the TR Identity Number and Tax Number Information to be used to obtain the .tr domain name of your users, if any, from the settings you have seen.

Determine the TLD you want to sell. (Example:

Select "Domain Name API" for auto registration.

Select the EPP code Option.

For pricing, you can enter manually. You can also set a Bulk Price. (will be explained in the next section).


Instead of using public Whois servers as a domain query source, you can use the domainname api. For this, press the "Change" button in the "Lookup provider" section, select the "DomainNameApi" option that appears at the bottom after the domain registry option, then choose which TLDs to use.

Bulk Pricing & Automated Pricing

Go to Registrar TLD Sync from Utilities section. Select "DomainNameApi" from the screen that comes up, wait a bit.

On the next screen, all tlds in our system are cross-compared with all tlds on whmcs, profit margin and loss are calculated and displayed in bulk, allowing import.
