SIP Domain Enrollment

You can create a limited number of SIP accounts under your own Internet domain as follows. The usage is based on a fair use policy and no support is provided. Do not complain that the SIP service does not work with some SIP devices, consult with the device manufacturer forum for this.

Account setup

Domain setup

First register an Internet domain with a domain registrar or SIPThor Net. This allows you to manage the DNS zone associated with your Internet domain. Managing the DNS zone records allows you to use the SIP servers provided by SIPThor Net infrastructure.

DNS setup

For anyone to be able to communicate with your addresses using SIP protocol, they must be able to find the SIP servers that serve your domain. If you want to make use of this service, the SIP servers belong to SIPThor Net infrastructure. For this to happen you must add certain records to the DNS zone for your domain at the entity that manages these records. These DNS records are describe here:

example.com.              3600 IN    NAPTR  30 100 "s" "SIP+D2U" "" _sip._udp.example.com.
example.com.              3600 IN    NAPTR  10 100 "s" "SIP+D2T" "" _sip._tcp.example.com.
_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.

Replace example.com with your own domain name.

In the description below the words domain and zone mean the same thing in different contexts.

DNS zone served by a third-party

Provision the DNS records described above into the DNS zone managed by the third party. Go to step SIP setup

DNS zone delegated to SIPThor Net

You can have your Internet domain registered with a third party and have the DNS records belong to your domain managed by SIPThor Net. At the service provider where you have registered your Internet domain, you can delegate the administration of the DNS records belonging to your Internet domain to SIPThor Net name servers by changing the existing NS records to the following name servers:

  • ns1.dns-hosting.info
  • ns2.dns-hosting.info
  • ns3.dns-hosting.info

Then follow the step DNS zone served by SIPThor Net

Domain registered by SIPThor Net
