Requesting a vHost
You must have a registered username in order to request a vHost.
- Once you have a registered username and are logged in join #vhost channel
- Request your vhost by doing /msg hostserv request desired.host
- Your request will be filtered by a bot and sent to the vhost team.
- Your request will then be manually approved by a human (please do not remind us of your request, we automatically get alerted already).
- Please do not request more than one vHost in a week’s time. So make sure you pick something that is suitable.
