Check domain names on the server, or check a domain to see if its registered or available? I'm not aware of any tool build into cPanel for this sort of thing. I would think most hosts use billing software like WHMCS which has these sorts of features in them.

thank you for the reply, i thought that WHM was part of cpanel. is WHMCS and WHM different?

then what does WHM do?

nm, found this:
WHM and cPanel is not the same type of software as WHMCS.
WHMCS is a billing software. You can manage orders, clients and products here.
WHM and cPanel is software to let you manage a web site and web server. Check it out here.
WHMCS interacts with WHM to create accounts when a customer pays up, suspends it if they don't etc.


Cpanel and WHM.. manage the "machine" and the programs that run in it.
WHMCS.. manage the clients bills and orders.

correct?
