Getting Prepared

Create a reseller account with Enom. When prompted, enter the IP of your CP server and control panel DNS server names.
   * Notes: DNS server names should be registered and propagated with ICANN accredited domain registrar.
In your Enom account allow using other name servers for domain registration. Otherwise your resellers offering their end users domain registration won't be able to use nameserver aliases which will disclose parent host transparency.

With Enom registrar you can register, renew, lookup, and transfer domains.


Setting Up Enom Connection

Requirement: agreement with Enom signed

To set up your connection with Enom:

  1. Log into your admin CP.
  2. Select Domain Registrar in the Settings menu.
  3. In the Add New Registrar box, choose Enom and click the Add button:
  4. You'll need to enter your Enom connection data:
    • Title: the name of your account. You can have more than one connection with Enom.
    • Server: Enom server (provided by Enom), e.g.:
    • Port: the port used for connecting to the Enom server (provided by Enom), e.g.: 80.
    • Protocol: the protocol required by to connect to the server, e.g.: http.
    • Path: the path to the domain registration software (provided by Enom), e.g.: /interface.asp.
    • Login: the login to the server (provided by Enom).
    • Password: the password to login to the's server (provided by Enom).
    • License Agreement: the text and/or the path to the license agreement obtained from Enom that explains the Enom's obligations to your customers, their obligations to Enom and proves you are a lawful registration service provider. This will be shown to your end-customers on the signup forms and when they decide to create a new domain through their CP.
    • Warn users about domain expiration this many days in advance: the domains are bought from Enom for a certain period of time (one or more years). When this time expires the domain is suspended, and if the term of domain name registration is not renewed, the domain is canceled and becomes available for sale to other buyers. Here you can set the number of days before the domain expiration date to remind the user about approaching domain cancelation.
    • Renew domains this many days before domain expiration: number of days before domain expiration to automatically renew the domain registration (as opposed to manual domain name registration renewal).
  5. Click Submit Query. Now your Enom connection is created and you can proceed to configuring other registrar connections or associating top level domains with domain registrars.

To test Enom without registering domains, you need to create a test account using Enom web interface.
