Step 1. Choose your domain
Go to the Sign up page and choose the domain you want. In my case, the name of my company is “OpCode Solutions“, so I choose the short name “opcode“.
Then click the “Sign up” button. IO Road will tell you if the domain is not available. In my case, my domain will be “opcode.ioroad.com” and I will direct my clients and providers to https://opcode.ioroad.com/ when I want to share big files with them.
Step 2. Enter your email
This step is important, you need a valid email address. This will allow you to reset your password, receive notifications from your domain and optionally receive important news and information about IO Road service. Enter your email address and make sure it is typed correctly.
Other fields are populated with good values, you may leave them as is. Just click the “Sign up” button to complete this step.
Step 3. Choose your password
Congratulations, your domain is already created! Check your email (and spam folder), IO Road sent you a security code of 5 characters. You need this security code to set your password.
Enter the security code, type the password you want and click the “Set password” button. For security reasons, the security code can be tried only once and will auto-expire after 20 minutes. Don’t worry, at this point, you can always go to your domain and use the reset password function.
