User accounts in desktop client
We’ve had some questions regarding the user account management within our domain name generator’s desktop client.
The user account tab is available since version 1.0.3 for both Windows and MacOS X and can be found under the Help/About menu link.
Please note that versions earlier than 1.0.5 do not report a wrong password to the user, so make sure you copy the correct user name and API key into the dialog. Note that the API key is not equal to your password and will be sent to you by mail during the registration process.
Version 1.0.5, due for release in the next couple of weeks, will properly report a username/API key mismatch and automatically remind users to enter their account information in order to get full access to the free client.
The new client also supports a multi-tier membership system which we will initially use to reward beta testers and regular users for feature requests and suggestions.
