OwnCube XMPP SERVER in 40 countries

XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol) - also known as “Jabber” - is a protocol to exchange messages,... via the Internet.
XMPP is an open and free alternative to commercial messaging and chat providers.
Use it for your business, your organisation, or simply for your family and friends.
You are in control, your communication is private and encrypted ( OTR, OMEMO ), and even hosted on YOUR own server.
We offer XMPP servers in 40 countries. You can choose where you want to host your Xmpp chat server.

Your own, safe and private XMPP server:

Encryption: No-one is able to read along your messages.
Authentication: You can be sure that the recipient is the person that you think he/she is.
Own domain/subdomain: Use your own domain/subdomain as login ID, e.g. name@xmpp.yourdomain.com or a free XMPP domain provided by us, NAME.myown.chat , without reference to OwnCube.
You can order your own .CHAT domain at any time at OwnCube, e.g. yourname.chat ... We offer .chat domains for 14.90€ per year.
Every participant in this free XMPP network is able to connect to any other participant, and then transfer messages, files,... - similar to the features at WhatsApp, Skype, Telegram or other well-known services.

However, there are a few special features which make XMPP even more attractive compared to WhatsApp and Co.:

* XMPP is a public, transparent standard
* This offer provides you with your OWN VPS with root access and pre-installed XMPP SERVER, no external provider, no admin access by OwnCube, ... Only you have access !
* All conversations, file transfers, videochats and the whole communication are carried out via your own server only!
* All public XMPP providers are cross-linked with each other. Thus it is not important if you have your own XMPP server and account. For example, you are able to communicate with all users of external XMPP servers without any problems.
* Data protection and safety play an important role in the XMPP network. As you possess your own XMPP server, you are the only person to have access to logs and the server itself.
* Unlimited own users, user creation with one single shell/ssh command, or activation of public registration per app.
* It is up to you how you use your XMPP account. There is a wide selection of programs and apps for all operating systems, which you can use for getting connected.

Software and information:

For our XMPP servers we use the software Prosody IM.
Prosody is a modern XMPP communication server, with good configuration options and a high system resource efficiency. Additional functions can be enabled and disabled easily.
We offer XMPP servers in 40 countries You can choose where you want to host your XMPP chat server.

The XMPP server is pre-installed and ready-to-use at delivery. You are able to add new users right away, and use chats, file transfer, ... directly on all platforms. Install app on your device, log in and you are ready to start. No technical adjustment or setup necessary. You receive detailled information in the setup email, how to create/delete/edit/... users. All you need is an SSH program, e.g. Putty for Windows or simply the command line for Linux.
The resources / hardware on the VPS are cloud-based, which means if you should consume 90% of the resources on the VPS (many chats, transfers, ...) the resouces increase automaticly to a higher level and you will not get out of resources. On the server itself all updates are carried out automatically, or we will support you at individual requests and adjustments if necessary.
It is not allowed to install other software than the ones we have set up for XMPP! Changes to the XMPP and its service are, of course, allowed. If our monitoring reports a utilization / execution of a program that has not been installed by us, OwnCube is entitled to block the server immediately.
