Importing domain TLDs from NameSilo

One of the main features of the NameSilo module which sets it apart from all our other domain modules is the Manage Packages feature.

Firstly we need to create a "Package Group" for the domains so let's do that by going to [Packages] > [Package Groups] and create a package group for all the domains.

We will be using "Domains" in this guide.

Next we need to go back to the Manage NameSilo page above after installation and click on "Manage Packages".


Option

Description

Package NameEnter a package name, you can use either {domain.tld} ".com" or {domain.tld_uppercase} ".COM"
DescriptionYou can write a description about the TLDs.
Use renewal prices for package upgradesWhen enabled, upgrading to this package will use renewal prices if they are set. The regular price will be used if this setting is disabled.

The only thing left to do is to add this "Domain package group" to an order form so clients may place orders for your NameSilo. See Selling Domains for more details.

Creating Packages

Welcome Email

The "Tags" section describes tags that may be used in the welcome email. The welcome email content is inserted into the "Service Creation" email template under [Settings] > [Company] > [Emails] > Service Creation. Only details unique to this service should be entered into the welcome email section for the package.

Sample Email

This sample email could be used in the Package Welcome Email section to help you get started. Be sure to enter content for your welcome email in both the HTML and Text sections.
