Own Jabber domains
We offer you the chance to run Jabber/XMPP accounts with your own domain. You could have identical address names for email and Jabber, for example firstname.lastname@example.org. But you don’t have to. You could also run a subdomain like jabber.domain.tld if that fits your needs better.
Another benefit is, that you (and if you like and request it other users as well) get administrative rights for your domain on the Jabber server. You can create, modify and delete accounts for your domain using our Web Admin interface.
Hot-Chilli web hosting customers
If you are already our web hosting customer, the setup is really easy for you – because we take care of everything for you.
Please check the extra charge per month for your web hosting package on our web hosting page.
Web hosting customers of other providers
You host your domain with another hosting provider? No problem at all, we can do Jabber hosting for you as well. However your hosting provider must allow you to make DNS SRV and DNS CNAME entries for your domain or if you cannot do it yourself, the hosting provider must do this for you. As an alternative you can deligate your domain or 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.
For detailed information about setting up DNS please see this page.
If we do DNS for you we can also provide a free Letsencrypt certificate for your Jabber/XMPP domain on our server. The alternative is either that you provide a certificate which is valid at least two years or we can use our hot-chilli.net certificate also for your domain (this will create client errors when connecting the first time but normally does cause any further problems).
