(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – eNom, Inc., the world’s largest ICANN accredited wholesale registrar and WHMCS, a billing and support solutions company, today announced the inclusion of eNom’s new TLD program in the recently launched WHMCS Version 5.2.3 software. This update will allow WHMCS users the unique opportunity to participate in all aspects of the initial phases of the new TLD launch, including the Sunrise and Landrush periods.
“We are an advocate and true believer in the introduction of new TLDs, as it will change how the world uses the Web,” said Aaron Phillips, vice president of business development for WHMCS. “Our partnership with eNom demonstrates our commitment to be at the forefront of this new digital endeavor.”
Today’s announcement is the result of a long collaboration between eNom and WHMCS in raising the visibility of new TLDs to the sizeable number of customers using both companies’ solutions. In November 2012, the companies announced a New-TLD-WHMCS add-on available to all WHMCS customers already on the eNom platform. With the release of 5.2.3, all WHMCS customers are now able to simply integrate and oversee the entire new TLD process – from supporting the trademark windows to granting access to new domain extensions the exact minute they go live.
“No matter who you are, as long as you’re a WHMCS customer you can very easily participate in this historic event,” said Chris Sheridan, vice president of business development for eNom. “We have made a significant technology enhancements to ensure that our resellers have access to participating in what we believe will be a very lucrative opportunity for them with the launch of new domain extensions.

These modules are powered by the robust and comprehensive eNom technology platform, which supports over 15M domain names and 8,800 resellers.
