# Jitsi Meet quick install
This guide helps you ___host your own Jitsi server___. If you want to have a video conference without setting up any infrastructure, use https://meet.jit.si instead.
This document describes the required steps for a quick Jitsi Meet installation on a Debian based GNU/Linux system. Debian 9 (Stretch) or later, and Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver) or later are supported out-of-the-box.
On Ubuntu systems, Jitsi requires dependencies from Ubuntu's `universe` package repository. To ensure this is enabled, run `apt-add-repository universe` at the command-line.
_Note_: Many of the installation steps require elevated privileges. If you are logged in using a regular user account, you may need to temporarily increase your permissions (for example, by using `sudo` for individual commands).
## Basic Jitsi Meet install
### Set up the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) (optional)
If the machine used to host the Jitsi Meet instance has a FQDN (for example `meet.example.org`) already set up in DNS, `/etc/hostname` must contain this FQDN; if this is not the case yet, [change the hostname](https://wiki.debian.org/HowTo/ChangeHostname).
Then add the same FQDN in the `/etc/hosts` file, associating it with the loopback address:
127.0.0.1 localhost meet.example.org
