iHosts (more commonly called vhosts or Virtual Hosts) are what users see instead of your hostmask. There are several ways for you to obtain an iHost(vHost) on iPocalypse!:
- In order to receive an iHost ending in .iHost, you need to have a nickname that has been registered for 30 days or longer.
- If you want a domain as your iHost, your nickname needs to have been registered on IRC.iPocalypse.net for at least 60 days, and you need to advertise iPocalypse.net in some form. This can be anything from blogging about iPocalypse.net, to tweeting our link.
- To obtain a domain iHost without waiting, make a monetary donation of $10 or more, on the Donate page.
** Domain iHosts must be a valid domain that you own, or have permission to use.
** iHosts may not be used to evade bans. Doing so will get your iHost removed, and network action could ensue.
** iHosts may not violate our Terms of Service. This includes, but is not limited to hate speech, inappropriate/illegal websites and IRC networks.
You may only change your iHost once every 2 months.
Concerns about anonymity being a reason to have an iHost are unwarranted, as hostmasks are encrypted and the most anyone can find out is the state/country that you live in.
All iHost requests are to be made in #help.
