I should add for clarity that I meant your own Asterisk/FreeSWITCH server *in

VoIP.ms still makes sense regardless of whether you're connecting to it with SIP
clients directly, or connecting to it with an Asterisk/FreeSWITCH server and
connecting your SIP clients to Asterisk/FreeSWITCH.

The latter option is more work but gives you more power; trying the former first
is a good intermediate step that can satisfy your simpler requirements fast and
defer the decision on whether or not to host your own server.
