SIP domain enrollment

You can create up to five SIP addresses under your own Internet domain as follows. In the description below the words Internet domain, DNS zone, SIP domain mean the same thing in different contexts. You may use them interchangeable.

Disclaimer. This service is provided free of charge based on a fair use policy with no support. Do not complain that the SIP service does not work with your particular SIP devices, ask the device manufacturer instead.

Login account setup

The login account will allow you to manage the data necessary to be able to use your own SIP domain and accounts.

Register a login account at SIPThor Net platform

Internet 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 zone setup

For anyone to be able to communicate with you by using a SIP address, they must be able to find the SIP servers 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 service provider that manages your DNS zone. 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.
_msrps._tcp.example.com.  3600 IN    SRV    0   0   2855 msrprelay.sipthor.net.
_stun._udp.example.com.   3600 IN    SRV    0   0   3478 stun1.dns-hosting.info.
_stun._udp.example.com.   3600 IN    SRV    0   0   3478 stun2.dns-hosting.info.
xcap.example.com.         3600 IN    TXT    "https://xcap.sipthor.net/xcap-root/" 

Replace example.com with your own Internet domain name.

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 account setup

DNS zone delegated to SIPThor Net

You can have your Internet domain registered with a third party and have the DNS records belonging to your Internet domain managed by SIPThor Net. At the domain registrar where you have registered your Internet domain, you can delegate the administration of the DNS zone 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

If this delegation is done, you can manage your DNS zone as explained below.

DNS zone served by SIPThor Net

  • Go to the DNS zones section and add your Internet domain
  • Go to the DNS records of your Internet domain, select record type SIP2SIP Infrastructure and click the Add button
