Registering an Account

Registering is fairly simple: go to the linked website and register on that page. For hookipa.net this will be https://hookipa.net/register/new and fill out the input fields:

  • Username: that’s your username you want to have. Maybe it’s already taken, then please choose another one.
  • Server: currently you can only enter “hookipa.net” here.
  • Password & Password Verification: enter your desired password here. Please use a strong password here that you haven’t used elsewhere yet.
  • Enter the text you see: here you need to enter the captcha code that is displayed right below the input line. If you don’t see an image there, there might be a problem with your browser or with the site itself (contact me then).
  • Click on “Register”

After you successfully registered your account, you can either use the webinterface on https://jabber.windfluechter.net/ or better use a dedicated XMPP client. Here is a list of recommended clients:
