Why do you only provide IPv6 connections to irc ?

Simply, because public IPv4 addresses are too expensive.

Will you ever provide IPv4 connections to irc ?

Yes, too people who donate, too free shell users once we have sufficient donations to accomplish this. If you really need IPv4 addresses and are able to pay for it, I can only suggest you purchase a commercial shell.

Why do you provide these services for free ?

Well we've always provided them for free to people who we knew. This is only the next logical step, since there aren't many free shell providers out there that do support irc.

I've noticed you talk about custom vhosts, what are those ?

It's simple, if you have a domain and would like to have a vhost on irc with that domain. Then you can request a PTR record for it so you can use it.

When I want a custom vhost, do I set my nameservers to your dns servers ?

No, you don't have to. All you need to do is create an AAAA record and request a PTR record for the reverse.

When I have a custom vhost, will other users be able to use it as well ?

Yes, every user on the server will be able to use your custom vhost.

If everyone can use my vhosts, then how will I secure my vhosts on my bots ?

Because every user has an unique ident. This will allow you to set a secure host to your bot. Fake idents will contain a tilde '~'.

Are there any conditions that I should meet when creating this vhost ?

Yes, the vhost must be valid to spamcalc. This is required by our IPv6 provider.

Will the webservices be banner-free ?

Yes.

How will I know which vhosts are at my disposal ?

You can retrieve a full list by typing 'vhosts' on your shell.

Will you share our personal info with any 3rd parties ?

No, we strongly beleve in preserving your personal information. However, this does not mean that should you abuse your shell that we won't work with the victims and the law. We are very cooperative on these matters. There will be a thorough investigation before any action is taken, but ofcourse, we are not going to share your information with just anyone. Abusive behaviour will also result in immediate removal of your shell account, and prior notice is not guaranteed.

Can I run public services from my shell like share psybnc account or an ircd .. ?

No, if your friend wants access to psybnc then he himself should signup for a shell. What about the ircd, well this server is not meanth to run those kind of services.

I can't connect to IRC why is that ?

Make sure that you are connecting to an IPv6 server or request an I-line at the specific network you want to connect to and notify us through our support page.

I have signed up but I havn't received an answer yet ?

If you have received an email that your request was successful. Then all you need to do is be patients, untill you receive an email which provides you with your user information. If you didn't receive a email that you had a successful signup, then you probably didn't fill out the signup form properly.

Why do you need our real information ?

Because, users who are not willing to give their real information are people who aren't up to no good anyway, most of the time that is. This is the main reason, I don't want abusive users.

I notice you provide pre-compiled programs, does this mean I can't compile one of my own ?

You can compile anything you like, though on your own compiled programs will be delivered no support. When you want a library to be installed and it is in the FreeBSD package tree I suggest you request that one, instead installing one of your own, still my suggestions won't limit you on doing so.

What do I do when I've lost my password ?

Reset it going to your account
