Camfrog Distributed Server and Camfrog Hoster Directory

Monday, August 19th, 2013

cloud_150Do you want to open your own Camfrog video chatroom, but don’t know where to start, or don’t want to have to deal with dedicated servers? Have no worries! We have made a special directory of Camfrog chatroom hosters.

You can browse through a list of hosting companies, and choose the provider you would like to use. These providers all use our new Distributed server system, which means that you will have full control over your chatroom through a special, secure webpage on camfrog.com. You don’t have to download any software at all, you can launch and manage your room all from the website! If you had a great experience with your chosen hoster, you can even leave a star rating, and feedback, to help other users find a quality hoster.

Visit hosting.camfrog.com to browse the available room hosters, and start your own chatroom today!

It’s easy. Find a hosting provider in the directory, and visit their website, or contact them using the information in their hoster profile. The hosting provider will give you a special access code, which you will use to launch and manage your room. You don’t need to register a hosting account, if you are just going to open a room on an existing hoster.

When you purchase room hosting from a hosting provider, you will receive a secret activation code. You will use that code to launch your room, and also to manage it. So be sure to keep your activation code secret.

Are you a room hoster?

We are very excited to announce the new Camfrog Distributed Server (CDS) for room hosters. This specialized software allows you to host many chatrooms, across multiple servers. Your customers can have full access to manage their room directly from your hosting page on camfrog.com. Not only that, but you can appear in theĀ Hoster Directory.

Camfrog Distributed Server is designed for hosters that run multiple Camfrog rooms. If you are only hosting 1 room, or a small number, Camfrog Server might be better suited for you. CDS is an advanced software package, designed to run across multiple servers.

How does it work?

Once you set CDS up on your servers, and have it working, you can then appear in the hosters directory. Anyone looking to open a Camfrog room ends up here, where they can see your contact information and website. You generate a special activation code for your customer, which allows them to login to your hosting control panel to launch their room on your servers. If you are an advanced server hoster, you can register for your own hosting account. Once you have verified your hoster account, you will have access to download the software packages, as well as other information on how to get started.

Camfrog Server 6.2 Now Available

Friday, October 5th, 2012

We just put out an update to Camfrog Server!

Camfrog Server 6.2 includes some bug fixes and stability enhancements, as well as System message localization, automatic recovery of media streams, and a built-in tool that checks if your server is accessible from the Internet.

Automatic recovery of media streams, means that if for some reason your webcam, or audio cuts out, or drops, it will automatically reconnect to the server.

The built in Accessibility check, simply verifies that your server is able to accept incoming connections from users over the internet, and that your firewall, or network is not blocking normal Camfrog activity.

Download Camfrog Server 6.2 from our download page and let us know what you think!
