Attention Resellers
Blesta Module Now Live

We are excited to announce that our new Registrar module for Blesta is now live. Blesta is a commercial billing and client management platform for hosting providers that allows installing and set up with your HEXONET production or OT&E account. The module performs the basic functionality such as registrations, transfers, manual renewals, modifications of contact information and nameservers of domains. It also supports additional domain fields, whois privacy, and registrar lock settings per domain. All this enables you to easily sell domains at a cost-effective price.

  • This rebrand will not affect your existing SSL certificates and Comodo Authority roots will remain trusted.
  • This rebrand will not impact your existing API integration as the legacy Comodo product names will be backward compatible
