[edit] Introduction

WHMCS uses the whois in order to perform domain name availability checks. See http://docs.whmcs.com/Domains_Configuration#Adding_Additional_WHOIS_Services


Advantages

The search is fast


Disadvantages

The search is not reliable due to the fact that:

- A deleted domain name in redemption or quarantine status are sometimes no longer displayed into the whois whereas it is still unavailable

- Registry reserved/blocked domain names are sometimes not displayed into the whois

- Some countries doesn't provide a whois or respond very slowly

- Some countries have implemented rate limiting per minute, per hour or per day.

- The domain name syntax is often not managed by the whois server.


In addition, the whois doesn't make any difference between a regular domain name and a premium one


[edit] NETIM's DAS

NETIM provides a Domain Availability Service over HTTP especially for WHMCS.

You will need a special password to be asked to our support team (this is not your reseller password for security reasons)


WHMCS 6

 .EXT|https://www.netim.com/bin/das-whmcs.php?login=XXXX&password=YYYY&domain=|HTTPREQUEST-: AVAILABLE
Replace "EXT" by the one you want to resell
Replace "XXXX" by your reseller ID
Replace "YYYY" by your DAS password

Do the same for all third level domain names under the extension, if any.

WHMCS 7

Learn more how whois servers are redefined in WHMCS http://docs.whmcs.com/WHOIS_Servers

  "uri": "https://www.netim.com/bin/das-whmcs.php?login=XXXX&password=YYYY&domain=",
  "available": ": AVAILABLE"
 }
Replace "EXT" by the one you want to resell
Replace "XXXX" by your reseller ID
