Jabber.org is the original instant messaging (IM) service based on XMPP, an open standard for IM.


Jabber.org was started in 1999[citation needed] and has offered free XMPP accounts to users continuously since. It originally served as the development test bed for the jabberd server project.[1] After becoming more stable it also became more popular with end users. As of 2012, it was a public production service, and one of the biggest nodes[citation needed] on the open XMPP network, with an average of 17,000 users logged in at a time.[2]

Jabber.org originally ran on what is now known as Jabberd14, in 2006 the service was migrated to ejabberd[3] on which it ran until 2010. In 2010 the service was migrated to Isode Limited's M-Link XMPP Server.[4]

Since June 25, 2013[citation needed] the jabber.org website has shown this error message for people who connect: "We have temporarily disabled account registration at the jabber.org IM service while we migrate the account database to a new machine. We will enable the web registration form again as soon as possible! In the meantime, you can create an account at any other public XMPP service."[5][non-primary source needed] The SSL certificate has also expired since then.[citation needed]
