WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.


H-Sphere comes with Domain Registrar Manager. It supports automatic domain registration services with multiple domain registration providers. This document provides step-by-step instructions on how to:


1. Before you start, make sure to have your company info carefully entered, as it will be used as Billing and Tech info for registered domains. With your company info incorrect or incomplete, end users may start encountering problems with domain registration. Company Info is set on the Look&Feel -> Company Info page.

2. TLDs with asynchronous registration, such as or, .de, etc. can be handled by admin only by OpenSRS.

3. TLDs that are not registered with supported registrars, such as .pt, or .jp should be handled by admin with Email Domain Registrar.

4. H-Sphere supports .US, .CA, .INFO, and .BIZ domains. Supported domain registration providers require that registrant phone and fax numbers be entered in a special format. Users registering .US and .CA domains are also asked for additional information.

Phone/fax format depending on the country of residence:

  • North America: NXX-NXX-XXXX/YYYY;
  • Other countries: +CCC.ZZZZZZZZZZ/YYYY.

N is a digit from 2 to 9,
X any digit,
YYYY optional extension,
CCC country code,
ZZZZZZZZZZ phone/fax number inside the country.

Administrators/resellers should also change the format of phone and fax numbers in their Company Info pages.


You can set different domain registration prices in different plans. However, you first need to set default domain registration prices to be applied every time a plan-specific price hasn't been specified.

  1. Log into your admin CP.
  2. Select Domain Registrar in the Settings menu.
  3. Click Define Terms/Prices for the top level domain you'd like to configure.
  4. Set the default prices for various periods:
    These are actual prices for the billing periods, they are not prorated to one year. This means, you need to enter "15 30 45 60 75 90 105 120 135 150", not "15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15".
  5. Repeat steps 3-4 for each TLD.
  6. Now that you have entered default prices, set domain registration prices for individual plans. Warning: If you don't set default or plan-specific prices, end users won't be able to register domains from their control panels.
