WHMCS and FranceDNS
This section is intended for resellers wanting more informations concerning the interaction of WHMCS and our system. We encourage all our users to read this section carefully and take into account all the information described.
How to track an operation?
Within our domain registration platform, each request is given a unique tracking ID. This number can be used for querying the request status. With WHMCS, requests are done by the module and you don't know these numbers.
This is the reason we are using the field "Subscription ID" for each domain name in order to store this number for initial registrations or transfers. You will be able to track the corresponding operation and your invoices into your FDNS Account.
Do NOT update this field, our synchronisation script will be unable to update the statut of the request.
As a reseller, you can monitor all your operations:
- by connecting to our FDNS web control panel, section “Resellers” > “Operations"
- you can automatically receive the result by email, you will have to connect to your FDNS account, and define in section “Account” > “Reseller settings” your notification email address
Monitoring of account's balance
This widget displays in real time the amount of funds available on your reseller account. The preview in the title allows you to keep it closed.
Monitoring of ongoing operations
This widget displays real-time list of current operations in your reseller account. The Edit icon allows direct access to the domain name's details.
The number of operations is shown in the title so you can keep it closed and see if there is an activity.
We are currently working on add-ons to synchronize the configuration of extensions, prices, etc.
