1. Login account setup¶
The login account will allow you to manage the data necessary to be able to use your own SIP domain and create accounts under it.
2. Internet domain setup¶
Register an Internet domain with an Internet domain registrar or SIPThor Net. This allows you to manage the DNS zone associated with your Internet domain and add the DNS records required to use the SIP servers provided by SIPThor Net infrastructure.
If you have registered your domain with SIPThor Net go to step DNS zone delegated by SIPThor Net
3. DNS zone setup¶
For anyone to be able to communicate with you using you own SIP address, they must be able to find the SIP server(s) that serve your Internet domain. When using this service, the SIP servers belong to SIPThor Net infrastructure. For this to happen, you must add certain DNS records to the DNS zone for your Internet domain at the DNS hosting provider that manages your DNS zone.
You have two choices.
A. DNS zone served by a third-party¶
You can have your Internet domain registered and its DNS zone management provided by a third party. Provision the following DNS records into the DNS zone managed by the third party.
example.com. 3600 IN NAPTR 10 100 "s" "SIPS+D2T "" _sips._tcp.example.com. example.com. 3600 IN NAPTR 20 100 "s" "SIP+D2T" "" _sip._tcp.example.com. example.com. 3600 IN NAPTR 30 100 "s" "SIP+D2U" "" _sip._udp.example.com. _sips._tcp.example.com. 3600 IN SRV 100 100 443 proxy.sipthor.net. _sip._tcp.example.com. 3600 IN SRV 100 100 5060 proxy.sipthor.net. _sip._udp.example.com. 3600 IN SRV 100 100 5060 proxy.sipthor.net. _msrps._tcp.example.com. 3600 IN SRV 0 0 2855 msrprelay.sipthor.net. _stun._udp.example.com. 3600 IN SRV 0 0 3478 stun1.sipthor.net. _stun._udp.example.com. 3600 IN SRV 0 0 3478 stun2.sipthor.net. xcap.example.com. 3600 IN TXT "https://xcap.sipthor.net/xcap-root/"
