Conferencing is rapidly becoming the “new way to do business” on the Internet. HotConference is a feature-rich application that makes your conferencing experience productive, satisfying, and rewarding.

Here are some of the main features that make HotConference the most affordable, innovative, and reliable conferencing software available on the Internet today.

Click on the relevant topic of interest to learn more details. Many options are only available to the owner or moderator of the room and may be 'grayed' out or simply not visible. The owner of the room has several options to enable and disable certain functions to suit their individual requirements. Functions that are usually moderator only are highlighted in red.

When you purchase your own conference software, you will need to make some configuration settings prior to downloading the software to your PC. This can be done from your back-office area. Login to the back-office area with the username and password you have been supplied with. Once on this page look for the links listed on the left side of the page and click "Administration Panel".
