Godaddy Registration Help - Call PIN


Hi,

I deal with many registrars. but, this is the first time, i am dealing with the big man, GoDaddy.

I registrered successfully. I logged out and i tried to login this time, i supplied the correct username and password. No problem. It asks me the PIN (call) to verify. i can't call from here (india) to there and is there any way to sort this problem out. What is PIN?

any help greatly appreciated. thanks.

and also, i have't received any email notification from Godaddy with my registration (welcome message like others usually send). I checked it Bulk (spam) mails too. any idea?

a PIN? I only use my login/password to log in, no PIN required

is this the direct godaddy.com address or a link through some spam mail etc?

i directly registered today. my username is dongan.

http://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/default.asp

ok. fine. i sorted out.

This is what i am asked.

Please create a 4-digit PIN number for your account.

If you call customer support, we will use this PIN number to verify your identity and account information. Your PIN helps us ensure that we're speaking to the appropriate account owner.

This PIN is only used to verify your identity and account information. You cannot use your PIN to access your accounts online.
Your Call-in PIN:
(The Call-in PIN must be 4 digits)

I thought we should call GoDaddy team to get this number. I entered my number and it accepts.

thanks for your help. i sorted out.

He is asking what a PIN is. A PIN is a 4-digit number, any 4-digit number, that you use to verify your account if you were to ever call GoDaddy Support. It can be anything you want. If you don't ever plan to call them then you can make up any number and forget about it.

Basically it is like a password.

You can create any PIN you want.

Basically it is just a verification for when you call them. It is just like a Credit Card pin. You create one, and then when you call, they will ask what it is so they know that you are the legit owner of the account.

And WildWestDomains uses it as well. As well as WWD resellers have it too. Basically every registrar in the GoDaddy network asks for it.
