Internet Connections, Firewalls & Performance
What kind of internet connection do I have to have to run ChatBeacon
You need a dedicated high-speed connection such as DSL, cable modem or a commercial class connection.
Are ChatBeacon chat sessions secure?
ChatBeacon Cloud is hosted in a secure SOC2 Datacenter, and all chats, data in transit and data at rest are encrypted by default. Please contact us for more information.
Is ChatBeacon firewall friendly?
Yes. ChatBeacon uses port 80 and/or 443 (SSL), which is the standard port for browsing to websites, thus eliminating almost all firewall issues that may occur.
How much memory does ChatBeacon use?
Typically, the memory usage is quite low because, by design, ChatBeacon is dynamically managed by .NET and, therefore, is not a memory intensive application.
Will ChatBeacon slow down my server?
If you are hosting the ChatBeacon Server on an existing web server, it will not affect the server's performance, but it depends on many usage factors.
Will ChatBeacon slow down my website?
Absolutely not! In most cases, the ChatBeacon code is added to the footer of the website and will be the last thing loading on your site, so it won’t interfere with your website page load.
