How to Configure Domain Settings in WHMCS

The “Domains” tab concerns domain registration options as well as Domain Lookup preferences and renewal settings. For example, if you want to set up default nameservers for your domain then you are in the right place.

Did you know? Not all hosting companies provide a free license for WHMCS. InMotion does with all Reseller Hosting plans and it’s just one of the many features available.
