Captchas of registration forms work again

The captchas of our registration forms (account and transport pre-registration) work again.

There was a session management problem which now is solved. Sorry for the time it did not work.

The web forms for changing passwords and removing accounts are not available, yet. Also there will be forms to reset passwords by sending out a mail. Therefore there will also be a web form to bind mail addresses to Jabber accounts. Please stay tuned.

Pre-registration for transports

Due to heavy bot and spam we just activated a pre-registration for most of our transport services. Thank you very much to Zash for this quick-n-dirty and well-working Prosody module.

From now on you have to make a pre-registration on this website before you can register to one of our transports by using your Jabber client. This pre-registration record is valid for 10 minutes, after that you would have to use our web form again.

Next to closing in-band registration for Jabber accounts this really seems to be necessary. Sorry about that…

Web register form works again

We just updated our web register form to work with Prosody.

Due to many spam and bot registrations public in-band registration is turned off again on our server.

Account

You can use our web based tools to register an account, change and reset the password for an account, add or change an email address linked to an account or delete an existing account from our server. Also you can pre-register for our transport services.

Register an account

Our XMPP/Jabber server software supports in-band registration through the clients, but we disabled it. This feature is heavily abused by spammers. You need to use our web based registration form.

To register you have to choose a username and a domain on our server. This combination forms your Jabber ID (JID) over which you are reached in the Jabber network by other users. The JID looks a bit like a e-mail address, e.g. username@jabber.hot-chilli.net.

You can choose whatever username you like (if not already taken by other users), as domain you can choose from the following public domains:

  • jabber.hot-chilli.net
  • jabber.hot-chilli.eu
  • hot-chilli.net
  • hot-chilli.eu
  • im.hot-chilli.net
  • im.hot-chilli.eu
  • jabb3r.de
  • jabb3r.org
  • jabber-hosting.de
  • xmpp-hosting.de

It is completely optional but we suggest that you enter an e-mail address which later can used for password recovery and also helps us to make sure that you really are the owner of an account in the case of a problem. Please note that we will not reset the password for your account and send it to some given e-mail address as we cannot assure that is is really you and really your account. We will only send the password to the e-mail address entered when creating the account or when added or changed later. Also please assure that the e-mail address is always valid. You need to change the e-mail address of you account if the old e-mail address is no longer valid.

Change your password

Please use our web based change password form to change the password of an account.

Reset your password

Please use our web based reset password form to reset the password of an account.

Remove your account

Please use our web based removal form to delete an account from our server.

Transport pre-registration

Please use our web based pre-registration form to create a pre-registration to use transport services on our Jabber server. After pre-registration you will be able to register your JID on our transport services for 31 days. Then you need to pre-register your JID again.
Please note: For using our transport services after registration you do not need to pre-register again. This is only needed if you want to register for another transport service or change something on an existing one (which includes unregistering the transport service as well).
