    Hey there Ali,

    As you likely read on the usage guide, Chat is a fairly resource heavy plugin, as is any self hosted chat solution.

    My advice would be to get a VPS, then it's easily scalable. Start off with a lower end tier then as needed, you can scale up. That way you don't spend more than you need too.

    100 one-on-one chats would be too many for a shared hosting package, even though shared hosting accounts say that they're "unlimited", there are invisible limits set in place by the web host - ie. if your site is doing a lot of calls repeatedly, which is what chat would do since it needs to poll for new messages.

    Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any further questions.

    All the best,

Thank NAME, for their help.
