https://DNSName, and follow the SquaredUp setup wizard to log in and enter your licence activation key. You will have been emailed an activation key (often called a licence key or activation key), which is then activated against a SquaredUp installation.
If you have been asked to reactivate your existing licence key, because it has been modified or extended, then you will need to reactivate your existing licence.
