Getting Started Creating your First Server

  • Getting Started with Jamroom Hosted

    Getting Started with Jamroom Hosted
    Are you looking for high end managed hosting for your Jamroom? Getting started with Jamroom Hosted is easy and makes running Jamroom sites a breeze.

    To get started creating your first server:

    - Create your account here on jamroom.net

    - Click on "Account: in the top right menu to go to your profile

    - Click on the hosting button in your profile menu (highlighted in yellow in the image to the right).
  • Start your Free Trial Server

    Start your Free Trial Server
    The next step is to create your first Jamroom Hosted Server, which includes a 7 day free trial. To create your server, click on the green "Try Jamroom Hosted for Free" button on the "Hosting" index page from your profile.

    This will take you to the Checkout page where you can begin your free trial.

    Note that a credit card is required, but you will not be charged if you discontinue your server in the first 7 days.
  • Select Server Options

    Select Server Options
    On the Create Hosted Server for, there's a couple things we need to enter:

    Server Name - Enter a descriptive server name. This will be auto filled for you, but you can change it to suit your needs.

    Domain Name - Enter a DOMAIN name - your first Jamroom site will automatically be setup for you with this domain name. If you don't have a domain name yet, don't worry - just enter a made up domain and it will be used to create a temporary domain you can access the site at. Switching to a "real" domain at a later point is easy.

    Select Server Plan - the 12G Hosted server comes with a 7 day free trial - select this option unless you know you need more space.

    Server Location - Select the data center you would like your server to be located in. New Jersey is a good location for serving users from both Europe and the North America.
  • Checkout and start Free Trial

    Checkout and start Free Trial
    Once you have clicked on "Create New Server" you will be taken to the checkout screen. The checkout screen shows you an easy to see "overview" of the Jamroom Hosted Free Trial.

    Press the "Start Free Trial" button to start your free trial. Within 5 minutes your new server will be created and you will be sent an email letting you know your new Jamroom Hosted server is online.

    That's it - your server is now online and is 100% managed - you don't have to worry about taking care of the server, making sure there are backups, keeping the server up to date, etc. - all that is taken care of for you with Jamroom Hosted.
  • Accessing your Hosting Dashboard

    Accessing your Hosting Dashboard
    You can access your Jamroom Hosted servers at any time by clicking on the "Your Hosting" option in the drop down menu under your name.

    Hold your mouse over the yellow highlighted menu selection in the top menu that contains your profile name and you will see the menu of available options. Click on "Your Hosting" to view your Jamroom Hosted servers.

This page should finish with a note explaining how to find the new server and new server control panel after it has been purchased, and after the first visit to the server. When I purchased my server, I could begin the process of setting up, but then I lost the page after entering my mailgun API, and cannot get back to it. Will keep looking.

Your Hosting Control is located in the "Hosting" section of your profile:

https://www.jamroom.net/researchcooperative

Click on "Hosting" (like it shows in the "Getting Started" section above) and you will see your server.

Hope this helps!

Thanks. I looked further into the next set of notes, and found the full instructions there.
The Hosting button is not just for making purchases, it becomes our link to the new server after purchase. We (or you) can return to the server control panel at any time using this route:

- Go to your Profile here on Jamroom.net
- Click on "Hosting" in your Profile Menu (at top right)
- Click on the "My Jamroom Servers" tab
- Click on "Server Dashboard" next to the server you are working on
- Click on the "Server Settings" button in the title bar
