Requesting a VHost
A VHost, also called a Virtual Host, is a fake host name which appears in place of the scrambled host name that you are given when you first connect to our network. A typical scrambled host might look like the following:
Some people think this looks ugly. However with HostServ, you are allowed to get a VHost to cover this. You can request a VHost with the following command:
/msg HostServ REQUEST <vhost>
There are several rules for requesting VHosts which can be found in the terms of service and are summarized here as follows:
- You may not change your VHost more than once per week
- You may not use your VHost to evade channel bans.
- Your VHost must not promote hate speech, profanity, or anything deemed by the network staff to be offensive
- VHosts may not begin with "staff/" as this is reserved for use by IRC operators.
- Your VHost may not resolve to a domain name (unless you can offer proof that you own the domain name in question)
