This page works best with Chrome. It has worked with Safari, Edge and Firefox, but we recommend Chrome. Edge is, however, really flaky and sometimes does not work with this page. It can also take some time to process when you tab between fields. Like a swan it may appear graceful and as if it is not doing much, but the server is furiously paddling below the surface to open your account. Hence it will probably take a few seconds to respond with a tick or a cross between fields. Please avoid using Edge.

Web Server Address (Domain Name):

We provide each of our clients with a new web address just for using our system. You can choose what the name is by typing it into this field. It has to end with "" For example if your company is Smiths Bakers the domain could be This will also give the domain if you use the virtual office for email, SIP or XMPP. If you type in an invalid domain it will make one up for you and use that. If you don't put a value in (because you don't know what to put in) after about 120 seconds (after you have put in the password) it will put one in for you. It cannot start with a number.

When you move the cursor out of this field (with tab or something) the browser will log into your new virtual office website (as long as all the answers you have given above work)

If it does not log you in you can try logging in manually to (remember to change yourcompany to whatever you have used as your website name.)
