1. Point your domain to the server
The first step is create an A-record at your domain registrar.
This enables you to access your server in any browser at your web domain.
We can’t set up your FREE SSL certificate until this step is completed.
2. Obtain your server’s details
A. Login to the Hosting Portal
In your Dashboard under Services, find your ownCloud server.
We offer 24×7×365 supportIf you cannot see the ownCloud server service you ordered or the server is not active, please open a support ticket.

In Mozilla Firefox, it may look like this:
Click the Advanced or Add Exception link to accept the warning and proceed to the unsafe page.
Why is there a warning?
HostJane cannot configure an SSL certificate (HTTPS://) for an IP address on its own. We need to wait until your domain is pointing to the server, and then assign your FREE SSL certificate to your domain.
Until your domain's A-record is setup, whenever you access your server by HTTPS://, a warning appears in your browser.
Your server comes with a self-signed SSL certificate.
If you access the server link using HTTP://, you will not see the warning.
C. How to remove the SSL warning
Once your domain's A-record is successfully pointing to your server, HostJane can install your FREE SSL certificate to remove the warning.
Please note that we can only install an SSL certificate on a top-level domain (TLD)
For example: TLD could be .com, .net, .org, .ca, or any TLD available.where the
HostJane and our servers work with all domain registrars worldwide.
4. Access the ownCloud server
After passing the SSL warning, you will see your server’s ownCloud login.
Enter the username and password details as found in Statistics
You will then be logged in to the ownCloud portal.
You can now host your files and content using your ownCloud server.
Your ownCloud server installation is complete!
