Options for running an IRC server
Situation: I have a small community running on Discord. It is nice enough, but there are some features I don't like and I would rather have more control over everything than leaving it up to Discord.
I found an IRC client/server that basically slaps a Discord skin on top of IRC that looks very promising: thelounge.chat
Problem: I can't set up thelounge on my web host. I have a shared hosting plan and when I ssh in the shell is pretty well locked down. I can configure Node.js through cpanel but I cannot install thelounge.
Main goals: have an IRC server that I have full control over. I want to be able to log everything. The main selling point of thelounge for me is the fact that it has message scrollback in private mode. Message scrollback or complete logs being available to users is key.
What are my options? I've seen a lot of IRC shell providers but I don't know how reliable they are and I don't know if they would support thelounge since it requires a Node.js install
Also if it matters I do have my own domain
