What is this chat page about?
- website owners and developers must read

Do you own a website? Are you looking for a chat page for your website? What if I tell you this is the page you are looking for.

This is a simple shared chat page and can be used directly or embed way on your website - for free.

The concept is, you will use the chat page on your website but using my chat server. So basically, multiple users can connect with my shared chat server from different websites. One single chat page - on multiple websites - with multiple users.

No matter where the user is chatting, it will be available in the entire chat network. The page is so simple that your users just need to enter their alias or name and they are in.

People who love to keep his visitors on his website, can implement this within 42 seconds. For detailed documentation please continue reading. This is so simple that you can embed this chat page without blinking eyes.

The goal

The service is made for fun. Use or modify this chat page in your website freely. Very helpful for musical sites, social sites and forums.

How does it work?

I manage the centralized chat platform. It has basically two sections. One is a core backend server where all chat messages are received, processed and broadcast. Other one is the client side page. We are sharing our client side page (front end page) with you so you can integrate this on your website. Once you implement that, the page will communicate to the backend server and your chat page is ready to serve.
