Setup eJabberd server (using $10/mo plan)

July 30, 2014 1.8k views

Hi, nice to meet you all!

I would like to buy the $10/mo plan, but I want to clarify that is it possible to setup a eJabberd server before buy it.

Thank you very much!

    Actually I would'n recommend you to run jabber server on DO droplet, neither any other cloud VPS provider due to loadbanancers usage in their VPS network, NAT sessions will expire on a loadbalancer causing partial contactslist status incorrect display. Some messages may fail to deliver as well. Better use KVM vps with transparent network like this http://v-sys.org/services/hosting/vps for tasks like ejabberd hosting

Definitely. You get full root access to your Droplet so you can install whatever software you like on it.
