We have always intended alwaysdata’s registration process to be as simple and fast as possible. We don’t ask you to pay — or even enter a credit card number — and the creation of your account is completed in real time. In less than a minute, you have an account that is usable immediately.
This simplicity attracts not only legitimate clients, but also numerous clients conducting illicit activities (spam, phishing, etc.). These undesirable accounts are becoming more and more numerous and, today, have led us to begin taking new security measures.
From now on, we will send a validation code via SMS during the registration process, which you must enter before proceeding. This minor inconvenience for the majority of good-faith clients will drastically limit abuse of the
system. Because we prefer to spend our time improving our service rather than chasing down fraudulent accounts :)
