Suspending or Unsuspending Orders in Bulk

As a Helper4Web.com Reseller, you may use the Bulk Suspension / Unsuspension tool to Suspend / Unsuspend multiple Orders belonging to your Customers and / or Sub-Resellers. Typically, you may need to Suspend Orders in response to abuse complaints or when you have not received payment towards an Order purchase/registration, renewal, transfer, etc.

Features of Order Suspension

  • Suspending a domain name would result in disruption of all services associated with a domain name such web hosting, email hosting, etc..

  • The Contact Details and Name Servers of such a domain name can not be modified in this state.

  • A Transfer [Away] Request for this domain name to another Registrar will fail at the Registry itself and will not be allowed.

  • Order Renewal and Deletion would not be possible.

  • An (Internal) Move/Push/Transfer of this Order to another Customer Account would not be possible in this state.

  • An Order Suspended by you, can only be Unsuspended by you or Helper4Web.com.

  • You will not be able to Unsuspend an Order Suspended by Helper4Web.com.

  • A Customer can not Unsuspend an Order under any circumstance.
