If for some reason you can't or don't want to install ZNC yourself, you may choose to get an account at some existing provider.

How you can start a new ZNC provider[edit]

  • Choose a hosting whose terms of service allow hosting IRC services; affordable; provides you with access to a unix or linux shell.
  • Install znc.
  • Install and configure an ident daemon, via, for example, identfile. The purpose of this is that users can not change their ident, and are easier to identify in the (hopefully rare) cases of abuse.
  • Create and document the new user sign-up and abuse report procedures.
  • List your ZNC provider in the table above.
