Welcome to the website of SmartCommunity, an international online Jabber/XMPP community. SmartCommunity was founded in Indonesia in 2008 to run a public Jabber/XMPP server, later we also took ownership. Our server was Indonesia’s most known Jabber/XMPP server beside VoIP Rakyat’s and Plasa’s ones. If you want to learn more about Jabber/XMPP technology, please read the introduction. News and updates are available in our Twitter.

Because of high interest to Jabber/XMPP in Syria and other arabic countries in 2011–2012, our server grown from a quite minor one to an extremely large for an incommercial project. We helped Syrian people to have their own XMPP domain and they helped us to get resources to be able to handle growing load. Because of that, nowadays our public server seems to be one of the world’s largest (or even the largest one) community powered Jabber/XMPP servers.

SmartCommunity’s website acts like a knowledge base on Jabber/XMPP related topics. Each community member is allowed to make editions. However, public registration on the website is closed in order to prevent abuse.

Certificate authority

We run our own certificate authority to sign our SSL certificates. It allows us not to pay money to commercial certificate authorities in order to use encrypted connections. Of course, it does not guarantee your security, but it’s very unusual for the free services to give you any guarantees in common.
