    Most hosters allow IRC if you don't want to use it for a botnet or the likes. Just contact any host in your mind and explain your use case.
    Hetzner for example doesnt have the word "IRC" in their terms of service.

    Or maybe check with HostSailor since they themselves are running IRC servers :)

    Back in the past, IRC was held on small servers. Now we have so much computing power, but IRC is not that populated. My advice: enjoy IRC using an existing network (Rizon, Freenode and so on)

    Fastmako (aff) - great VPS for your needs.

    Hi @OSS and @pike - We don't mention many things specifically on our ToS. Yes, we allow IRC. I laughed a bit when I saw this post because I had recently been talking to a friend about this XKCD comic.
    If you have more questions about what is allowed or not allowed with our products, our sales technicians will always be happy to help. --Katie

    We have no policy against running IRC servers on our network if you're still looking for a host.

    I think the challenge is that any IRC over 150+ users ends up being a DDoS magnet.

    We have no policies against DDoS protecting IRC servers. Brings us back to the good ole days.

    Shouldnt be an issue with nowadays protection (thinking about clouvider, php-friends, even OVH since IRC uses TCP)

  • IRC Networks allow connected users to communicate in both a public and private fashion. IRC Networks provide countless benefits such as secure group and one-on-one conversations, compatibility with several gameservers to allow in-game communication directly from your IRC client or even just a place to hang out with your friends.

    sing the InspIRCd app on a low end VPS, you can begin hosting your own IRC chat rooms to instantly communicate with your family and friends. To get started, go ahead and spin up an Ubuntu 16.04 VPS and login using SSH.

    Once you follow these steps, you’ll be able to configure and deploy your own IRC server.

    Update your Repositories

    sudo apt-get update

    Install InspIRCd

    sudo apt-get install inspircd

    If you are asked to answer Y or N, always select Y unless otherwise noted in this tutorial. If all went well, you’ll be returned back to the command line without any errors. Here is an example:

    Finalize the Configuration

    The easiest way to configure InspIRCd is by using the Nano text editor. Here is how you should proceed:

    sudo nano /etc/inspircd/inspircd.conf
