Do 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 the 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.

We regularly have people sending us great ideas for gifts, and even sending us artwork they have made themselves, asking us to upload it into the Camfrog Virtual Gifts Catalog. Well, we are excited to announce the new Gift Studio, where you can upload your own artwork/images, and it will appear in the gifts catalog.
As a bonus, each time your custom gift is sent, you will earn back bonus Camfrog coins!
Here are a few tips and guidelines to uploading a custom virtual gift:
- Use your own artwork. If you upload something that doesn’t belong to you, it will be rejected.
- Make sure you are uploading a 100×100 pixel .jpg – If your image is larger than 100×100 it will not upload
- Make your gift light, and fun! (Check out our existing catalog for ideas!)

Please be aware, there are several phishing/scam websites out there right now offering free gifts, or free coins for Christmas. These websites look like Camfrog.com website, and ask you to enter your username and password to claim your free Camfrog Coins, or Christmas Virtual Gift. These websites then steal your account, and use it to spam other Camfrog users.
These sites are fake. There are no free Camfrog Coins or free Christmas gifts promotions at this time. We are working to get these fake phishing sites taken down as soon as possible.
Remember, NEVER enter your Camfrog username/password anywhere that is not camfrog.com
If you are not sure about the validity of a website, please contact our support team to confirm.
Have a hoppy, hoppy Christmas and New Years!

Some of you have already noticed something new on our website. Today, we launched a new, easier way to purchase virtual gifts: Camfrog Coins
Camfrog Coins are a virtual currency, that you can use to instantly send a vgift to a friend, a stranger, or your favorite room. When you purchase Camfrog Coins pack, your profile is updated automatically to show your current coins at the top of the page:
When you send a gift using Camfrog Coins, your available coins balance is automatically updated, when the gift is instantly delivered. No more waiting on payment or processing delays. Send multiple gifts quickly and easily!
Speaking of gifts. You may have also noticed, that we have changed the gift achievement levels as well!
We have updated our Gifts Catalog, and adjusted how many gift points each gift is worth, as well as updated the achievement tiers, adding two new crown levels!
Also added to your profile homepage, is a new gift status center, which shows you your current achievement level, how many coins you have, and how many points to unlock the next achievement level, as well as some other cool information
We’re pretty excited about this new gifting system, and as always, we welcome your feedback and ideas to make it even better!
Keep hopping Froggers!
Update: A lot of people have been asking about the new points tiers, or saying gifts do not appear in the Camfrog Software. Please be sure to check out our About Gifts page to see the full updated tiers. Yellow star is now 1000 points, instead of 10 – So to have the yellow star appear inside the software, you need at least 1000 points.
