We have been receiving a lot of queries asking about the differences between iFlyChat and DrupalChat. Thankfully we have iFlyChat installed on our website, we are able to answer all through it. Nonetheless, we still want to write about it so as to remove any confusion and doubts.
Question :- So, once again what is the difference between iFlyChat and DrupalChat.
Answer:- In most simplest of words there is NONE.
DrupalChat module was developed way back in 2010 for Drupal websites. And in no time it reached the figure of around 1600+ customers. Many of web admins gave excellent feedbacks, some requested for enhancements and many wanted a much efficient and faster backend.
So keeping in mind that the backbone of a chatting system is its backend, we launched iFlyChat in June, 2012. We decided that we will give our customers a backend with which their project will FLY HIGH. Now question comes that how we are going to do that
1) First, iFlyChat comes with our custom servers which are made just to handle lots of chatting load at a time.
2) Websites dont have to use their own server resources and get hastle free chatiing experience
3) Web admins dont have to maintain servers, we have got that covered.
4) Faster chatting experience.
5) High amount of traffic can be handled by our servers.
6) And many more advance and awesome features about which we will mention in following blogs.

And websites who feel like using their own servers for backend can configure DrupalChat. Just change backend in module configuration setting to Ajax or Long Polling and you are good to go.
Both of the options(iFlyChat/DrupalChat) are great, it depends on ones need and requirements for selecting one of the two. If you are confused about which option to use just PING US and tell us about your website and we will suggest you the BEST option.
We hope this helped in clearing off the dust on all the confusion.
