They provide an API, too, and a WHMCS module: http://code.google.com/p/namecheap/

Yes you are correct, not much documentation about this, and soapi + whmcs does not look like something we will be able to get working..

So it would be better (and a lot faster) to get someone to do it for you.
The WHMCS dvelpers are offering custom made module development, and from one of the threads i could see that the developer was asking for 4/500$ of work.
why would i spend $500 for a service which will provide OVH with long term profit for something i already got for free on tucows ...

it should come from OVH, they should do it for us, as it is in the long run a good thing for OVH.

its like paying a "setup fee" .....
I guess it will never happen.

I just had a look at the WHMCS site, and they have an API which one could use.
Looks like it is possible to integrate new providers into the system.
But I never used WHMCS, so don't know how easy it can be done.

i do have my soapi panel in Perl ( i made one for dedicated servers ).

the thing is to integrate it with an existing application ( whmcs ) which is not something i find easy to do.. im not into php.

Thank you,

Hello,
i am currently using WHMCS and I have a domain reseller account from tucows which works great.

I would like to explore the option to use OVH as my domain registrar, does OVH has the API codes(and php files) to integrate with WHMCS ?

I am not going to hire some coder to make it work for me, i am looking for a complete solution like i currently have ( they provided me with the php scripts for the API to work with - tucows that is ).

will i be able to use OVH as a registrar? or stick to good old tucows.

also, same question about SSL certificates ( i use godaddy for these atm ).

Thanks
