This article shows the step by step process to sign up for an Instaclustr console account. Once you have signed up and verified your email address you will be able to view detailed pricing information, provision clusters and access our support area.
1. Go to the Sign Up page.
2. Enter the required information and click the Sign Up button. Choose a secure password as it will be used to manage all aspects of your cluster account, including cluster deletion.
3. You should receive a confirmation email at the email address that you used for sign up.
Note: If you have not yet received a confirmation email, please wait a minute before checking again. If you still have not received a confirmation email, click the Resend Verification E-mail button.
4. Check your email inbox and open the Instaclustr welcome message, which contains a link to verify your email address and Instaclustr account. Click the Verify My Email Address button. Note, you cannot start a free trial cluster until you have verified your email address.
5. After clicking the Verify My Email Address button you will be redirected to a page confirming your email address verification. You will also be automatically logged into the console.
Note: While you can initiate the creation of your clusters immediately after signing up with us, your clusters will not be provisioned until you have verified your account. The 14 day free trial allows for one small cluster running at a time. To create additional clusters you will need to submit your billing information.
To enter billing information, click the Home link.
Click Account tab and then Billing tab.
6. Once you have completed the Billing form, click the Save Payment Details button. You may notice a temporary $1.00 pre-authorisation to your account, this is necessary to verify the authenticity of your account details, but will not be processed.
Note: You may be subject to provisioning limits, but can be authorised for additional nodes by contacting us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
