    Hi,

    I currently am using hostgator for a group forum that I run. I want to embed IRC chat in the forum but hostgator doesn't allow IRC functionality. Any shared hosting I could switch to that allows this?

    Thanks

    Irc server can't be run on a shared server. You need a vps or a a dedicated server. There are some cheap VPSs out there that cost $5-10/mo

    I know that. I don't want to host an IRC server. I just want to run an IRC client. they won't allow it, because the cut there servers off from connect through IRC.

    If you just need a simple ircd running like unrealircd or whatever, i can set it up for you, send the admin logins and that's all.

    It's really not a problem, pm me if you need it.

    I can do it like maybe 12hrs from now on for free.
    I was using irc back in the days for many many years so It's really no biggie to host a simple ircd for you.

    Won't cost you anything, IRC servers consume very little resources.

    PM me:
    1. prefferred ircd software
    2. supported encryption types if needed
