Domain Monitor Extension Beta Release

:loudspeaker: MainWP Domain Monitor Extension Beta 1 is out.

The Extension is used to automatically check Domains or your Child Sites. It checks for the expiration date and notifies you via customizable email if any of your domains are about to expire.

That is not all, with the Domain Monitor, you can easily get useful info about a domain:

  • Registrar (along with the registrar URL)
  • Registrar WHOIS Server
  • Registrar Abuse and Contact info
  • Name Servers
  • Domain Creation , Update , and Expiration date
  • And Domain Status .

MainWP Domain Monitor Extension Saves you Time!

With MainWP Domain Monitor Extension, you don’t need to check domain info for each Child Site separately. The extension will allow you to check all your connected WordPress sites domains in bulk from one screen, or schedule automated checks.

Moreover, you can easily see all essential data about your managed sites domains on the same screen.

MainWP Pro users already have access to the extension.

For the quick setup help, please check this help document:

If you encounter any bugs, glitches, lack of functionality, or other problems with the extension, please let us know immediately so we can rectify these accordingly. Your help in this regard is greatly appreciated.

:hugs: from the team MainWP.


I’ve installed and activated the extension until the step of the first “Check All Sites Domains”. The list with (235) sites shows and the first 5 are starting to process. After a few minutes nothing changed. I’ve closed the modal and installed some language updates before doing another attempt. Same result…
I’ll do a sync of all sites now and will try again, hoping that will change something.

Same issue after a full sync. The Domain Monitor dashboard page doesn’t show sites. Starting a new check gives the same result as above. It’s not a browser cache thing or something. Browser console and PHP error log don’t show errors.

Hi Jos,

I am sorry to see this issue in your setup.

I can’t duplicate this behavior on my test setup. Here is how it works for me:

I even tried with a completely fresh setup to run the first check, and still worked for me:

Just to rule out potential plugin conflicts, can you try to temporarily disable all other plugins on the dashboard site and see if that helps?

I’ve disabled all plugins except MainWP Child, MainWP Dashboard and the Domain Monitor Extension. Same issue. Can it be something related to the number of sites?
Or maybe something in the database how sites are stored, like the issue I see when removing sites that have been longer in my dashboard?

Is there another way to check just a few or single sites for the first time? On the Domain Monitor tab of a single site, I can’t see a check button.

Hi Jos,

thanks for verifying that.

I don’t think that this problem is related to the number of child sites. I think it would at least start checking and time-out after it hits some limit.

Do you see any error in the Error Log page or in the browser console?

No errors (see original message)

Hi Jos,

My apologies for the oversight.
At this point, I don’t know what could be causing the issue on your setup.
Would you mind opening a ticket so we can check it out?

Hi Jon,

can you please try what I suggested to Jos and if you still get the same error, please open a helpdesk ticket so we can check what is going on.


I’ve just added this and it went through and did all our sites… except it’s not pulling info for domains, which as we’re UK based is a little dissapointing :wink:

What do we need to do to get a full list?



Just following this up, I think it’s because the whois server should be for the UK based domains, not

Just a thought


Hi David,

thanks for reporting this. Can you check if this version works better:

My .pt (Portugal) Domains all show me “-19035 days” Check attached image

It also stops after 28/45 Completed

19035 days have past since 1 January 1970 (the start date for timestamp calculations), so it looks like the calculation goes wrong. It also looks strange, that all domains expire today. I’m thinking of a problem with the date format, that must be checked better, causing the strange values.

Overall the only thing that it got correctly (and only in very few ones) is the nameservers, most are all empty

Hi @intel,

thanks for reporting this. We will look into this as soon as possible.

It seems that my .ca domains are not being entered into the system too well, the requests to check it time out. Works for others though (.com mainly). Hopefully that can be checked too.

Here is a new set of updates for reported issues:

This version results in 235 “successful” checks in less then 10 seconds, but no results yet.

I installed the extension and it keep spinning on .nu domains.

I have results from all other domains but with all domains the expiry date is 1 januari 1970.
