Sign up on DocuX

Signing up on DocuX is fast and easy.

Go to the DocuX website and click on the Get started free button in the top-right corner or click on this link:

This form should open up: Sign up on DocuX with OTP, Password, Google, or Microsoft

You can choose to sign up using any of the following methods:

  • OTP or One-Time Passcode: A 6-digit passcode will be sent to your email. Enter the passcode in the form and sign up.
  • Password: Use an email and password to sign up. You will need to verify your email.
  • Google: Directly sign up with your Google account.
  • Microsoft: Directly sign up with your Microsoft account.

Start using your free trial

All new accounts on DocuX are offered a 90-day free trial across all our plans.

DocuX’s free trial has no limits and you can use each plan with all of its included features during the trial period.

Signing up is easy, needs no payment info and you can get started right away. You will be on the Personal plan by default—which is our free-for-life plan and can claim the free trial of any of our paid plans as shown below.


This is an introductory offer and may be paused or cancelled in the future.

To upgrade to a 90-day free trial of the Pro, Team, or Enterprise plans:

  • Click on Settings at the bottom-left corner of the DocuX menu.
  • Click first on Plans & Invoicing, then on Manage. Claim your free trial of any subscription plan on the Plans & Invoicing page
  • Select the plan you wish to upgrade to for the duration of the trial.
  • Choose the number of creator licenses and billing frequency.
  • Click on Confirm. Your new plan is now active.
  • You cannot downgrade from a team plan (Team, Enterprise) to an individual plan (Personal, Pro) because users and data are managed differently for both.
  • If you signed up via an invitation from your company, the free trial and its inclusions do not apply to you. Your access to DocuX features will depend on the subscription your company is on and the role they have assigned to you.

Set up your profile

Now that you have signed up and claimed your free trial, let’s set up your profile. Your profile can be accessed in two ways:

  • Emails are not editable on DocuX. Your email address is irrevocably linked to your DocuX account.

Here’s a quick run-through of the different security settings:

Login password strength: Users will be required to set a password of the strength you select.

Login password change: Users will be required to change their passwords at the frequency you select.

Auto logout: Users will be logged out if they are inactive on DocuX for longer than the time limit you set.

PDF encryption type: Set the encryption strength for password protected eSign documents.

IP ranges restrictions: If turned on, only users from the IP addresses your specify will be able to log in to DocuX.

Integrations: You can choose to block or allow third-party integrations available on DocuX to your users.
