Hosting via Tigase.me

If you don’t want to do all the hosting yourself, you can still have an XMPP service running in your own domain. The only condition right now is proper DNS service record (SRV) configuration that point to the following DNS address: tigase.me.

We highly encourage using SRV records. If you want to register: your-domain.tld on our XMPP service make sure that it resolves correctly:

Federation / s2s connection (MIX)

_xmpp-server._tcp.pubsub.your-domain.tld

SRV

10 0 5269 tigase.me.

Federation / s2s connection (PubSub)

Note

If you want to have MUC, MIX and PubSub available under your domain as subdomains, you have to setup DNS for your muc.your-domain.tld, mix.your-domain.tld and pubsub.your-domain.tld domains too but they are optional.

You can check if the configuration is correct by issuing following commands:

$ host -t SRV _xmpp-client._tcp.your-domain.tld
$ host -t SRV _xmpps-client._tcp.your-domain.tld
$ host -t SRV _xmpp-server._tcp.your-domain.tld
$ host -t SRV _xmpp-server._tcp.muc.your-domain.tld
$ host -t SRV _xmpp-server._tcp.pubsub.your-domain.tld

Now, how do you register your domain with our service?

There are a few ways. We recommend checking with the Add and Manage Domains section of the documentation on setting that up. If you cannot or don’t want to do it on your own, the way described in the guide please send us a message, either via XMPP to admin@tigase.im or the contact form requesting new domain. User registration is available via in-band registration protocol. You can also specify whether you want to allow anonymous authentication to be available for your domain and you can specify maximum number of users for your domain.
