Domain Security Pin adds a new level of safety inside your Control Panel at Papaki, for maximum protection of your domain names. After you activate the Security Pin, you need to enter inside the Control Panel a pin sent to your cellphone in order to make changes to Nameservers, Contacts and Authorization Code of a domain.
How do I activate the Security Pin?
You can activate the Domain Security Pin separately for each domain you wish to protect, through your Control Panel (follow steps below) or when registering a domain, by adding the service to your cart. You also need to have your mobile saved in your account.
For existing domain names:
1. Log in to your Control Panel and go to your domain's management page.
2. Click on "Domain Security Pin" at the bottom right of the page, as shown below.
3. Select payment method and complete the procedure
(In case you don't have a mobile saved in your account, you will be transferred to "Profile Manager", where you will be able to add you number.)
By activating the Security Pin for a domain, you can be sure that your domain name is protected. Before changing Nameservers, Contact Info or Authorization Code, you need to enter the security pin sent solely to the cellphone number saved in your account.
Each time the user enters the Security Pin inside the Control Panel, he gains access to all protected domain names, until he logs out.
