Set Up Your Account Security

Account security is vital to protecting your business and personal information. You can add a trusted phone number to your account, set up a pin, and add 2-step verification (also called multi-factor verification) to ensure only those with permission can access your account. 


Take a Tour of Your Account Manager

Once you have logged in to your new account, click the link to tour your new account manager. Visit the New Account Manager Homepage Guide for more information.


Manage Payments and Renewals

Once your account is secure, you can check your billing information. You want to check that your credit cards and renewal information are correct. It is best to have the automatic renewal turned on to prevent interruptions with your products or services.

Add and Manage Contacts

You can create a profile and assign roles to anyone who needs access to your account. This will allow others to help you manage only the areas of the account that they need access to. You can also manage the contact information showing publicly in the WHOIS database.


Next Steps

Now that you’ve set up your account, it’s time to get started with your products and services. Below are common next steps to get you up and running.
