Strengthening security: two-factor authentication for Client Portal 6.1a
We're thrilled to announce a pivotal upgrade to the security features of our Client Portal. In version 6.1a, we're ushering in Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) via SMS to further safeguard your access to the portal.
Why enable two-factor authentication in ServerPoint's Client Portal?
With 2FA, besides your password, you'll need a unique verification code sent to your mobile via SMS, making unauthorized access to the Client Portal immensely challenging.
Protection beyond login:
This isn't just about accessing the Client Portal. It's about fortifying every asset linked to your account:
- VPS Hosting: Ensure that management of your virtual private server (VPS) hosting service remains exclusively yours.
- Linux VPS: Add an additional layer to guard your Linux-based VPS assets.
- Windows VPS: Protect your Windows-based VPS configurations.
- WordPress Installations: Secure your websites hosted within our platform.
- Domain Registration: Keep your domain management activities and settings securely under your control.
How It works:
- Login as usual: Provide your username and password at https://portal.serverpoint.com.
- Access your profile configuration: It is found at the top right corner, under "Account."
- Provide your SMS phone number: You can also provide a secondary one, in case someday, your primary number is not working for some reason.
- Enter the code: You will be sent a verification code to ensure the phone number is reachable via SMS.
- Access granted: After the code gets verified, you're good to go!
From this moment forward, whenever you log in to ServerPoint's Client Portal, a 6-digit code will be sent to you, which you will need to enter to continue.
Stay connected for more enhancements, and as always, thank you for being an integral part of the ServerPoint.com community.
