How to get a vhost

# What is a vhost

A vhost (a.k.a. vanity host or virtual hosts) is a custom part after the @ in your user mask on IRC. For example:

MrRandom!MrRandom@MrRandom.may.explode.on.impact

My vhost when I use the nickname MrRandom is MrRandom.my.explode.on.impact.

Why is my bot banned

So your bot can’t connect and it’s saying it has been banned from the network. This has happened because your bot was either:

  1. Spamming users, opers or channels
  2. In a channel where the channel owner hadn’t given it permission

If your bot didn’t run ident then your entire host has been banned from the network. If you bot did respond to ident then only it was banned so you can still connect to the server just not with the account the bot was on.

To appeal the ban contact an operator in #help or email opers (@) digitalirc (dot) org

Can I link two channels?

One question that is routinely asked in #help is how a channel owner can forward users from one channel to another. They usually ask this because they have changed channel names, and there is no other method available to regular users (as opposed to those with access to the IRCd configuration files); however it is also useful if the group that the channel is used by is hosting an event, and to keep the main channel manageable, want to limit it to only X amount of people, and have users that join after that go to an overfill channel.

How to use the chanserv access System

On Digital IRC, we have two access systems. Standard access system, and XOP. XOP is a simplification of the access system to make things a bit easier. However, with simplification comes a loss of features.

XOP is enabled by default for newly registered channels. It has 4 ChanServ commands – VOP, HOP, AOP and SOP for auto voice, auto halfop, auto op and auto admin, respectively. See ChanServ Commands for help with those commands.
