WHMCS 5.3.10 Released


We are pleased to announce the release of WHMCS 5.3.10.

This update contains general maintenance updates for the 5.3 series of WHMCS.

As usual, we are making available both an incremental upgrade version containing just the changed files for those upgrading from the latest current version V5.3.9 and a full release which can be used to perform a new installation or update an existing installation regardless of previous version.

Both of these are available to download from the downloads page below.


Please refer to the release notes for specific information regarding this release and details of any template changes that are required.

This release also contains the updates necessary to the ResellerClub module to ensure privacy protection can still be provisioned when ResellerClub begins charging for Privacy Protection for WHMCS sub-resellers on Monday, 22nd September. If you intend to set a price for Privacy Protection inside the ResellerClub Supersite, you will need these updates.

Changes to expiry date handling for .eu domain names as of 15 September 2014


This is being provided as a public service announcement and any queries should be addressed to your domain registrar.

On 15 September 2014, EURid will launch its new registration platform. Thereafter, newly registered .eu domain names will no longer expire at the end of the month but rather at the end of their registration term, calculated in years starting on the registration date and ranging from one (1) to ten (10) years. Domain names registered on 29 February will always expire on 28 February.

This change has been incorporated into new versions of the .eu Terms and Conditions and .eu Registrar Agreement, which will go into effect on 15 September, when the new registration platform is launched. New versions of these documents in all languages are available below.

For existing domain names - those registered before 15 September 2014 - registrars have been given the option to apply the new expiry date approach or to keep the existing system whereby domain names expire at the end of the month.

The default option, which sees domain names expire at the end of the month, will apply to all registered domain names whose registrars do not indicate their preference by 15 September 2014.

As is already the case, transfers will not change the expiry day but will add an extra year to the registration term of a domain name.

For further details, please see the original announcement @ http://www.eurid.eu/en/news/jul-2014/new-expiry-date-eu-domain-names-15-september-2014

Specific to ResellerClub Users

There will be a maintenance window for .EU registrations of 3 days starting today, 12th September 2014 through 15th September 2014. During the downtime, it will not be possible to perform any transactions on .EU domain names with ResellerClub. As a result:

> New registrations will be queued and processed once the downtime is over
> Any system changes/renewals/transfers will fail and will need to be resubmitted when the downtime is over

For further details, please refer to http://blog.resellerclub.com/2014/09/04/eu-registry-downtime-notice-changes-to-eu-lifecycle/

ResellerClub to begin charging for Privacy Protection


From Monday 22nd September, ResellerClub will begin charging for Privacy Protection.

Privacy Protection has until now been available free from ResellerClub for domains purchased through them. However, ResellerClub has now announced that they are to discontinue this offer.

Don't despair though, there's some Good News for WHMCS users! Through our partnership with ResellerClub, we have been able to delay the introduction of charges on your behalf. Most other ResellerClub users started paying for ID protection at the beginning of August. As well, we are providing a tool to help ease the transition to ResellerClub's Privacy Protection pricing model.

The annual fee for ResellerClub Privacy Protection will be $3 per domain.

This will apply to ID protection both for new registrations and for renewals of existing domains. Domain names that are already registered and use the Privacy Protection service will not have any charges applied until the next renewal.

So what does this mean for you?

If you sell domains through ResellerClub, there are a few changes that you as a WHMCS customer will likely want to do:

1. The first is to set pricing for new orders of ID Protection. This can be done in Setup > Domain Pricing within your WHMCS admin area, just below the TLDs list.

2. The second is to increase the renewal prices of your existing customers domain registrations that have ID protection enabled. The easiest way to do this is using Version 3.0 of the Bulk Pricing Updater Addon. Version 3.0 provides support for both Domain Addons and relative price increases, and is available to download from today. Find out more here.

Additionally, before the introduction date of September 22nd, we will release an updated version of the WHMCS ResellerClub module. The updated module will use the new privacy protection purchase parameters associated with ResellerClub's changes. It is important that you do not set a sale price for privacy protection inside of the ResellerClub control panel until this update, as that will render WHMCS unable to provision it for you.

If you have any questions or concerns, ResellerClub are available to answer any questions you might have and they can be contacted by emailing whmcs[at]resellerclub.com
