  Internal or External Whois Engine
 
 

The system offers the use of any external whois engine or our internal engine. Under safe mode? No problems - this new advance will allow you to run from virtually any server. This is an important feature given that registrar based whois systems might not always be operable, or might run into server lag or traffic issues. In this case, the only system you need to worry about, is yours.

 
   

 

  Registrar Integration
 
 Whois.Carttm features a special registrar API (RAPI) integration system where by fulfilling several interface requirements, a PHP object can act as intermediary between any registrar that provides a user API and Whois.Carttm. RAPIs are placed into special folders inside the system's /admin/registrars/ directory and are automatically available for use with the system to perform your registrations, transfers and renewals amongst other registrar commands. The associations are performed on a TLD-assocation basis, defined in the TLD to Registrar API table. This way, associating .com with Enom, .net with OpenSRS, and other TLDs with other RAPIs concurrently is made possible - allowing you to source your registrations with several different registrars on one installation. You can add and remove or adjust associations on the fly without worrying about its inner workings. The system will remember with which API a domain was first registered and maintain its association after any change is made to the general table where necessary.  
   

 

  Hosting Panel Integration
 
 Our new version of Whois.Carttm posesses a live hosting panel API (HAPI) interface system. With it, you are able to tie into your hosting panels and multi-manage your servers as orders are placed! With this new system, processed orders automatically generate the hosting accounts (in addition to the domain registrations) required to fulfill your orders and leave your clients happy. There is no limit to the amount of servers you can manage. Currently available are HAPI modules for CPanel/WHM, Interworx, Helm and Directadmin.  
   

 

  Payment Portals
 
 

Whois.Carttm incorporates a unique payment portal system which recognizes them automatically as they are saved into the appropriate folder. Each portal file is composed of three parts that are used interchangedly by the system. The system also provides a basic 'plug' class that you can extend as a PHP object and use as a platform to develop your own payment portals. The system inherently supports the following payment portals, all are provided under the initial purchase price:

 
   

 

  Client Panel
 
 Your clients can now log in to a system that the cart provides and revisit orders they've placed with you before. They can also delete unverified orders without your assistance to save you the hassle of deleting orders placed by error. The client panel also provides domain management features, such as setting contacts, changing nameservers, and more. Logging in also circumvents the registration forms, this means that returning customers don't need to fill the same forms out over and over again. We are constantly developing our system of course, and the extensible design of this front end sets no limits to what we can accomplish with it. Suggestions are always invited!  
   

 

  Recurring Billing
 
 As hosting and domain object anniversaries approach to within the first warning duration you specify in the billing settings panel, invoices are sent to their owning clients, advising that 'renewables' have been added to their accounts. Renewables discovered within this range are batched as they are sent to the client as well, merging several invoice items into a single invoice. The client thereafter logs into their client section and either pays for, changes, or cancels those renewable items. Should the client forget to pay, any required suspensions and terminations are also automated - suspension warnings can be sent as required. The unique aspect of the system is that it is sourced through the itself instead of through third-party mechanisms, allowing the client to alter their payment method without your intervention.
