1. Secure your domain with two-factor authentication
When we talked about how to manage your domain online, one tip we mentioned was using two-factor authentication on your registrar login for added security, without describing what two-factor authentication is and why it gives you any more security than a password. That’s why this month we decided to explore the topic a bit more in depth.
2. Updates on webmail services
Did you know that Gandi provides two different webmail services that you can use to access your GandiMail email mailboxes? We do! And we’re updating the URLs for these services and upgrading the versions.
