Answers to common questions…

We all have questions, here are our answers to some of the common questions

  • How do I get an account?

    If you are 13 years of age or older, you just need to fill out our “Account Request” form, for some of our younger students, we will need your parent or legal guardian’s permission before your account is created. If you parent / legal guardian is present when the account is requested, they can sign-off online. Just in case that your parent or legal guardian is not available when you request your account, we are required to contact them before your account is approved.

  • I have a free account and cannot access the internet from my instances. Why?

    As part of our strategy to conserve resources and provide increased security, Yellow Circle has opted to prevent internet access from student servers. In order to interact with your servers, you will need to launch a desktop instance such as Windows 10, or Ubuntu Desktop. You may gain internet access through a small annual donation of $10
