From Zero to Hero : Publish your application for free with our 30 day trial

In this quick tutorial we will show you how to set up a 30-day free website in NoIP,  that you will be able to use to demo your application to your clients.

Before starting, make sure you have a working instance of Thinfinity Remote Desktop or Thinfinity VirtualUI. (Still don’t have them? Try them for free!)

  1.  Register the URL you want to use for your demo application using NoIP. NoIP, which gives you a free hostname for 30 days :

https://www.noip.com/

Once you registered your domain, bind it to the public IP address of your Thinfinity VirtualUI   server:

If your server is behind a Router, then you’ll need to do some port forwarding. NoIP has some good examples on how to do so :

You can also check if the port you wish to use is opened, using the following page:

Now that we have a URL pointing to our server, let’s create a SSL certificate for it :

  1.  Install WIN-Acme on your Thinfinity server and follow the instructions for creating a SSL certificate .

Win-Acme is a small client that uses Let’s Encrypt servers for creating free SSL certificates.

Below you will find their URL and some basic information :

https://www.win-acme.com

https://www.win-acme.com/manual/getting-started

Certificates created using Win-Acme are automatically stored in your ‘Personal’ Folder.

3) Select the newly added certificate to Thinfinity VirtualUI ‘Bindings’ menu :

Click ‘Apply’ and navigate to the URL .

Open a browser, and navigate to the URL configured for Thinfinity.

You should see now that the URL is now protected with a valid HTTPS certificate :

And that’s it !

You now have a 30-day free website that you can use to demo your application to your clients !
