Register (SaaS version)

While Keestash is free and open source, we also provide a SaaS version of Keestash. The SaaS version is intended for individuals and others who do not want to host Keestash themself.

The following documents a registration and payment with our payment provider Stripe. However, users hosting Keestash themself can also provide a registration without Stripe. Keestash checks on runtime whether payment is active and forwards users to the Stripe checkout. Read more about it here.

It is also possible to provide paid registrations for your Keestash instance. Please reach us out for further instructions.

Register Form

To register for Keestash, we need a few information about you. These information are used to personalize the experience with Keestash only and are not used or shared with third party services otherwise. An exception to this rule are payment data: we use the payment data forwarded to us by our payment partners in order to check regularly whether your subscription is valid.

To sign up for Keestash, we need your first and last name, an username that is shown up everywhere, an actual email adress and a master password:

  • First/Last Name: are used on some places to identify you.
  • Username: is usually shown to other users. Must be unique within the whole system. You can not register if the username is already taken.
  • Email Address: is used to send emails within Keestash. Must be unique within the whole system. You can not register if the email address is already taken.
  • Master Password: is used to identify you and encrypt all your data (such as passwords). Your master password must contain at least 8 characters, one number, one lower case and one upper case character. For your own security, we recommend to use a very long password that does not contain any words from a dictionary.

Payment Checkout

Once you submit the necessary data and Keestash considers them as valid, you will be forwarded to our payment provider Stripe. Stripe will guide you through their standard payment process where you need to subscribe to Keestash. You can identify the Keestash subscription by it’s name and logo at the left side:

Once you subscribe successfully, Stripe will notify Keestash in order to activate your account. Keestash will immediately activate and send you an email to welcome you. This will usually happen within seconds.
