A ‘vHost’ (virtual host) allows users to hide their hostmask (e.g., Evil.users.evilnet.org) with something creative (e.g., i.am.evil).

Requesting a vHost

You must have a registered username in order to request a vHost.

  1. Once you have a registered username and are logged in join #vhost channel
  2. Request your vhost by doing !vhost <desired.host>
  3. Your request will be filtered by a bot and sent to the vhost team.
  4. Your request will then be manually approved by a human (please do not remind us of your request, we automatically get alerted already).
