Setting up

  1. Sign up

    This is as simple as entering your domain name and your email address, we will scan your website's DNS to detect the origin IP and set your Peakhour service up.

  2. Review inital options

    Confirm that your website's origin IP is correct and choose whether you want us to optimise your site and protect it using our WAF

  3. Setup SSL

    We will initially configure your site with SSL in pass through mode. This is to ensure that your site will work when you point your website to us. Once you point to us we will automatically apply for a free LetsEncrypt certificate for your domain and then switch you to enabled. However if you already have your own SSL certificate you can choose to install it at this stage. If you install one we will not apply for a free certificate on your behalf.

  4. Point your domain to Peakhour

    You are now ready to point your domain to Peakhour. Once this is done and the changes are propagated Peakhour will now be able to optimise and secure your site.
