Update Available for OpenSRS Module

An update of WHMCS's OpenSRS gateway module is available for download to accommodate for immediate service-level changes provided by OpenSRS.

On Monday at 10:30pm EST, OpenSRS reset the passwords associated with reseller domains. This change rendered all domain management, for existing domains, non-functional in the OpenSRS module provided by WHMCS.

In response to this, the WHMCS development team has updated the OpenSRS module to use an alternative authentication method which removes the reliance on the reseller web interface domain passwords.

This module is compatible with both WHMCS v5.3.x* and v6.0. Once you deploy this updated module, all OpenSRS functionality will be restored.

If you have any questions regarding the services provided by OpenSRS or their recent changes, please contact OpenSRS support at [email protected].

As always, if you have any question about WHMCS our technical support team is available

* This Hotfix is compatible with PHP 5.3 and later. Please contact WHMCS support if you require a version compatible with PHP 5.2.

.ORG Pricing Increase from July 31st, 2015


On July 31st, 2015, Public Interest Registry (PIR), the Registry Operator for the .org domain, is increasing the annual registration price by $0.80 USD.

As a result of this registry increase, the cost of registering and/or renewing a .org domain will be increasing for all domain registrars, and in turn will affect prices for our eNom and ResellerClub users.

For our ResellerClub users, the current base price of $9.45/year will be increasing to $10.05/year and for our eNom users, the current base price of $9.85/year will be increasing to $10.45/year. Despite the $0.80 price increase, you'll notice our sub-reseller prices are only increasing by 60 cents. This is due to both the domain registrars and ourselves absorbing some of the cost increase to offer our clients the best possible rates.

eNom users will also be receiving an email notice from eNom regarding this price increase.

You may be asking, what does this mean for me?

On July 31st, you will want to review your domain pricing in WHMCS for the .org TLD and adjust it as necessary to maintain the profit margin you desire. To adjust the domain pricing go to Setup > Products/Services > Domain Pricing inside your WHMCS admin area and click on Open Pricing next to the .org TLD.

Before that date however, you might also like to consider renewing any .org domains you own to avoid the upcoming price increase.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this update, please do not hesitate to contact our support team.
