DNS settings for Jabber hosting

If you host your domain with another hosting provider and you want us to do Jabber hosting you have to set some DNS SRV and DNS TXT entries into your DNS zone file. Many providers allow you to do that, if not, the provider has to do this for you.

(As an alternative you can deligate a subdomain, for example jabber.domain.tld, to our DNS servers and we take care of everything else. Your hosting provider must allow you to do this as well.)

Please set the following entries:

_xmpp-server._tcp.domain.tld. IN SRV 0 0 5269

_xmpp-client._tcp.domain.tld. IN SRV 10 0 5222

_xmpp-client._tcp.domain.tld. IN SRV 20 0 80

_xmpps-client._tcp.domain.tld. IN SRV 30 0 5223

_xmpps-client._tcp.domain.tld. IN SRV 40 0 443

_xmppconnect.domain.tld. IN TXT "_xmpp-client-xbosh="

_xmppconnect.domain.tld. IN TXT "_xmpp-client-websocket=wss://"

This is how it looks in BIND9 zone files. A web interface of your provider might look different, but the data you have to enter is mostly the same.

If you have any problems, don’t hesitate and contact us.
