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

Introducing the New cPanel Hosting Account User Interface.
Version 6.0 has a brand new look for cPanel hosting customers, bringing WHMCS and cPanel closer together than ever before.
Taking full advantage of the all new Single Sign-On integration between our two products, this new end-user interface is designed to provide your clients with an easier and more convenient way to access many of the most commonly used functionalities of the cPanel control panel, all directly from within your WHMCS member portal.
It makes transitioning from the billing panel to the website control panel quick, seamless, and without any need to re-authenticate.
In addition, the interface makes it really easy to promote and purchase addons and extras, provides a graphical representation of disk and bandwidth usage, and, if upgrade products are configured, will recommend upgrading when a user reaches 75% or more of their allocated resources.
To complete the changes, the new interface also features a Quick Email Create option, allowing users to create new email accounts without ever leaving the billing portal.
Fully templated and customisable, you're in control of exactly what features of cPanel are presented to your customers.
You can download and give it a try today by signing up to our beta
. Release Candidate 1 includes this functionality and is available to download now.
