How to put a chat room on my website?

apps

#1

I have had a domain fully hosted by Dreamhost for many years, and I wondered how straightforward it would be to install a chat room on it.

I had a quick look at the one-click-install applications, but couldn’t find a chat room there. Is this something that can be done?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Neil,

there are a few options you can use to add a chat to your site and which option to pick depends on what your needs are, like your typical users.

Do you need a chat with multiple channels, based on IRC? Then I’d look into this javascript client for IRC; examples are http://mibbit.com/ and https://kiwiirc.com/
If you don’t want to use IRC, you’ll have to find other servers to connect to or run your own chat server of some kind.

What exactly do you have in mind?
