Two-Step Authentication for your Softwex account

Posted by Mohammed Mahgoub on Sun, Apr 23 2017 21:09:00

Since your domain name is one your most valuable assets, recently we added Two-Step Authentication or 2FA as another layer of security which could help you avoid disasters.

What is 2FA?

Two Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA, two step verification, is an extra layer of security that is known as "multi factor authentication" that requires not only a password and username but also something that only, and only, that user has on them, i.e. a piece of information only they should know or have immediately to hand - such as a physical token.

How to enable it?

To complete the setup of Two-Step Authentication you need to do the following:

  • Log in to your Softwex account then go to Settings - Security and click "Enable Two-Step Authentication"
  • Download Google Authenticator from Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
  • Launch the app and click the Add button (+)
  • Scan the QR code
  • Confirm by entering the six digits code into the designated area.

Once the process is finished, next time you log in you will be presented with a page where you enter a six digits code generated by Google Authenticator app to access your account. So even if hackers were able to get hold of your password it is still not enough for them to tamper with your account.

We strongly recommend that you enable this option to keep your account safe!

Changes in domain registration and transfer prices

Posted by Mohammed Mahgoub on Thu, Nov 03 2016 12:00:00

This post serves as a notice regarding the price increase that Softwex plans to put into effect immediately, starting today. This increase is caused by the continuing fluctuations  is currency exchange rates which has been very damaging to our business.

Rest assured, however, that we have found a way to reduce that price increase to the littlest amount possible in these circumstances. Our full automated systems have allowed us to adjust the rise so that you, Softwex's loyal consumer, shall not bear the brunt of the increase which is still the lowest prices you can get in Sudan.

Domain registrations are now SDG 199.99 while domain transfers cost SDG 149.99 for our customers in Sudan.

توحيد أسعار باقات الإستضافة

Posted by Mohammed Mahgoub on Thu, Oct 20 2016 21:11:00

أعزائنا الكرام نود أن نلفت إنتباهكم إلى أنه تم اليوم تطبيق توحيد الأسعار لجميع باقات الاستضافة الجديدة والاشتراكات منذ العام 2011 والتي تم الإعلان عنه في الواحد والعشرين من يونيو.

لقد ظل هم سوفتوكيس ومنذ تدشينها لخدمة iHost هو تقديم خدمات الاستضافة لكل السودانيين بأسعار مناسبة ومعقولة لكي تتمكن جميع الفئات سوآءً كانت شركات وأعمال تجارية أو أفراد أو حتى طلاب من ايصال اصواتهم وعرض منتجاتهم عبر الإنترنت. ولطالما كنا -وما زلنا- نسعى وراء هذا الهدف ونؤمن به. لكننا أيضا نعتقد أنه من المهم لنا ولعملائنا أن تبقى خدمة الاستضافة متوفرة ومستقرة. وهذا سيكون مستحيلا في ظل الظروف الاقتصادية الصعبة التي تأثر بها الجميع مؤخراً. فأما أن تظل الأسعار كما هي ونخاطر ببقاء الخدمة أو زيادة الأسعار ومحاولة تقديم أفضل ما لدينا.

نود أن نعرب عن شكرنا وأمتننا لكل عملائنا والمشتركين الكرام الذين أحبوا الخدمة وكانوا هم سبب نجاحها.

لكم منا كل تحية وتقدير.
