Do websites with yola work as a server host for multiplayer programs and chat?
I am making a chat program that uses an internet connection to connect to a host. I want to use my website ( I tried this but it did not work. do i need a special script or permissions or something like that?

Hi Ryan,

Multiplayer programs hosted on Yola wouldn't work for the reason being that you can't have direct logins. It would be OK though if you were using your site as a portal to the hosted games.

Hosting the games themselves may also be a problem because of allowed file types and no direct access to the server.

You can use your yolasite to connect to a remote host for chatting but once again this would depend on the file types needed for it to work from the Yola environment. There are a number of proprietary chat facilities and forums that do work with Yola.
