Option to disable the new "Free Domain" feature

Anonymous shared this idea 5 years ago

Maybe this just impacts us, however WHMCS in version 5.1 released a feature that lets you renew domains that are free only if they associated with a product / service that has the "free domain" feature enabled.

However now it is not possible to have a domain for $0 renew automatically, unless it is associated with a product with the free domain option enabled.

We have quite a large number of domains in our WHMCS under 1 account that is not associated with a product or service.

Would be good to have a tickbox to turn this feature off, or at least allow domains that are set to $0 renew automatically without being associated with a product.

A setting called "Auto Renew Requires Product" located under Setup > General Settings > Domains tab now faciliates this.

Absolutely - We have hundreds of "corporate" domains that we own. For the sake of consistency, we manage all these domains via WHMCS so that all domains we have registered - whether for ourselves or clients - are treated the exact same way. We now have to break the management of these domains away from the WHMCS system of management. This also affects dozens of domains that we register for free for local charitable orgs, family, friends, etc.

Bottom line is that I have reasons for running my business the way I run it, as does everyone else. You can certainly add features, etc, but you should get out of the habit of changing features without at least offering an on/off switch for the new feature!
