Getting Your Own Chatroom!

So you'd like to start your own chatroom, would you? Not a problem, we can probably help you out. But first, we have to figure out what exactly what you'd like from your chatroom.

Basic Package

- IRC based only, accessible only through IRC clients (mIRC, ircle, Snak, PIRCH) on GoodChatting.com, making use of ChanServ and NickServ to manage your channel.

What is the advantage of this?

This is the basic purpose of an IRC server, to allow people to chat with each other about virtually anything. It's not really an advantage, since you can accomplish this on most other IRC networks.

What's the catch?

Without IRC Operator help, this is a free service we at GoodChatting.com provide. If you require Julie's help to register and set up your channel, this will be a one-time fee of $5 (USD, payable through PayPal). This includes helping you understand how to add operators to your channel, and how to make future changes yourself, though if you're stuck, we'll help you out in the future at no extra cost.

Total Cost: Free, without help.
Total Cost: $5, with help.

GoodChatting Package - Best Deal

- IRC based, accessible through the jPilot Java Applet and IRC clients, page located on GoodChatting.com, making use of ChanServ and NickServ to manage your channel.

What is the advantage of this?

It means you don't have to pay $49.99 (USD) to register the jPilot Java Applet, since Julie has already paid for it to run from GoodChatting.com. This package includes registering and setting up your channel with you.

What's the catch?

There is none. You can HTML the page and configure the applet yourself, as well as register the channel on your own, but to cover hosting charges, this is a one-time payment of $20 USD.

* Note that if you'd like Julie to make modifications to the default page that is provided, the changes must take Julie less than 30 minutes, otherwise, a fee of $5 (USD) will be charged. Please contact Julie about the modifications and she will let you know if a fee will be charged or not before making the changes. *

(Please note, bandwidth charges on this package may apply in the future as traffic on GoodChatting.com grows. At this time, this is not a problem.)

Initial Cost: $20.
Cost for future HTML/Java changes that take less than 30 minutes: Free!
Cost for future HTML/Java changes that take more than 30 minutes: $5.

OffSite Package

- IRC based, accessible through the jPilot Java Applet and IRC clients, page located on your own server, channel located at GoodChatting.com, making use of ChanServ and NickServ to manage your channel. This involves registering the jPilot Java Applet from jpilot.com at a cost of $49.99 (USD).

What is the advantage of this?

It means you're not dependent on the GoodChatting.com webserver, and you only have your own bandwidth to worry about. You host your HTML page and the Java applet on your own site and can place your own advertisements on that chat page.

What's the catch?

Well, you're paying about $50 (USD) for the applet alone. If you don't know how to configure the applet, or just don't want to, Julie can do that for you for a one-time fee of $10. This includes registering and setting up your channel.

Lowest Initial Cost: $49.99 to jPilot without help from Julie.
Highest Initial Cost: $59.99. Above amount to jPilot, $10 to Julie for configuration and registration.
Cost for future HTML/Java changes that take less than 30 minutes: Free!
Cost for future HTML/Java changes that take more than 30 minutes: $5.

If you're interested, please fill out the form below, which will email Julie with the kind of package you're considering. She'll write you back to help you decide if that's what you really want, and to arrange a time to set everything up. Please do not fill out the form if you aren't going to mail Julie back regarding your chatroom package. There have been too many people emailing to sign up for various packages and no one bothers to respond to Julie's replies, so please be sure you are interested in one of these packages.

What would you like to name your room? (no spaces, shorter is better)



For an extra $2.50 each, you can elect to have your nickname or your channel never expire on the server, instead of them expiring after 30 days without you logging in. Consider it insurance in case you don't host a chat for an extended period or in case you forget to login using NickServ and ChanServ.

Please select the type of No Expire protection you would like:
Nickname ($2.50)
Channel ($2.50)

Finally, please select if your want your room to be visible to other users on the IRC server. This option is 100% free, and we need to know whether or not to include it in your chatroom on setup.
