How to Get Started with Cloudbric!

You may watch our activation guide here or follow the below steps.

Step 1: Create an Account

Go to www.cloudbric.com and press the create an account button. Don’t worry about the paid plans as all users start with free access until you reach 4GB of traffic in the same month. 4GB is equal to about 1,000 visitors if you have minimal graphics (think 1-2), or about 2-300 if you have moderate graphics (think a typical blog). We’ll let you know if you’ve reached 4GB, and you can decide whether to continue using our service or not before being charged.

You’ll receive an e-mail in your inbox asking for confirmation of the account. Don’t forget to click the link!

Step 2: Add Your Website

Step 3: Choose Your Cloudbric Server

You’ll be asked to choose a Cloudbric server. We will show you a recommendation for the fastest service – in this case, Illinois – so that your website performance is at its best. Simply click on the select.

Step 4: Choose Your Website's SSL Status

You'll be asked if your website has an SSL certificate or not. If you aren't sure, you may visit here to check your website's SSL status. Once you've clicked NO/YES, then click ‘Next.’

You’ll be asked to choose an installation method. Read carefully and click one of the two. Then, click ‘Next.’

Step 5: Update Your DNS Information 1. Name Servers 2. DNS Records (A-record & CNAME)

Updating your DNS information is important.

You’ll now see the page above. Simply log-in to the domain's registrar account of your website (this isn’t Cloubric, but your website host, such as GoDaddy or WiX), and find the ‘Settings’ page. There you will be able to see information about your website such as what ‘DNS’ your website points to, along with other information such as A-records. 

Simply replace the ones you see to the ones shown on the Cloudbric site above. If you plan to change name servers, then make sure you see four name servers by the time you’re done. Also, add all missing records. But if you plan to change A-record and CNAME only, then make sure you change yourwebsite.com (A-record) and www.yourwebsite.com (CNAME) DNS records only. 

And that’s it! All you need to do is sit back and relax while Cloudbric takes care of the rest! If you have any questions, don’t forget to ask on our real time 24/7 chatting option on the Cloudbric homepage.
