Internet Relay Chat (IRC) :: VPS (Virtual Private Server) Hosting
Jul 28, 2007
I am looking for somewhere in the US or Canada that can host a VPS with the following requirements:
256mb ram - burst 512mb
2 ips (or 1 with cheap price for an extra ip)
Public IRC Capable (not linking with EFNet, etc.)
I've been searching for something that can meet my needs but I've been at a loss. BuyAVPS became a big issue, and I pulled out quickly before the most recent downtime, SolarVPS before that with their lovely billing problems and collection threats.
I currently have two servers with vaserve, one under the a2b2 brand and the other under the EpicVPS brand, which I am very happy with, but they don't allow the hosting of IRC or bots in any way.
I was wondering if anyone could suggest a (very) low cost (very) low spec plan that would allow me to host a single IRC bot. I'm looking for something around 64mb ram, and whatever disk/bandwidth you think would be enough for the bot.
I am not the brightest when it comes to IRC. Ideally we want to create a "Chat Room" for our website members. We only need one room, so I am thinking a whole server is over kill However I am interested in knowing if not requiring a whole server, is there a service perhaps that allows us to have our own branded irc channel, IE: irc.ourwebsite.com ?
I am only thinking IRC as we want our users to use the web based interface, and there is a plethora of these that can run through a java applet to the IRC channel. Or are there better solutions?
I am open to suggestions, we are only looking to have about 30 people in the chat room.
I'm looking for a good place to get a dedicated server from that allows IRC other than Staminus and has decent DDoS mitigation just to be safe. I would prefer total network bandwidth capacity to be no less than 10GB/s that pier with premium tier-1 bandwidth providers.
Needing: Processor: No less than a dual core RAM: 1-4 GB RAM HDD: No less than 150GB HDD IPs: 64 or 128 IP Addresses No less than 1500GB/m bandwidth on 100MB
Does anyone here know about a dedicated server hosting company located in either Florida or Texas (United States) which allows the use of IRC? I plan to link to an already established network. Nothing illegal!
I have recently opened up a game, in which is slowly becoming pretty active. However, I want the ability to create an IRC server - locally. We are currently only on shared hosting, because we don't have a lot of bandwidth usage yet - however I believe it would be successfull to start an IRC server now, plus it would be nice to know how to do it.
However, I have two questions/problems: I am not interested in having another computer run the IRC server, because I don't have a stable internet connection except at home in which Im not willing to have to drive from campus to home if something were to happen. Therefore, I'd like to be able to run it off a PC I have ideling inside my dorm. The problem is, my roommate uses it a lot while I use my laptop, and therefore it needs to run off Windows, or somehow give me the ability to run it off a linux while running Windows - or something silly like that.
Therefore, I have two possibilities. Either one, this is completely not possible or two there is some sort of emulator or something like in which I can run IRC on Windows - Or the ability to create an IRC server directly onto windows.
Any ideas? If it is the second possibility, please provide some good tutorials or software into creating a basic IRC server. I don't really care about security unless it is going to affect the connection/box. It's not like we have a bunch of hackers who are going to attemp to exploit it, because when we launch out of BETA we will buy a server, in which we will have IRC installed onto it.
In last several days (maybe weeks) I sometime see in bandwith graph that link of 10mb/s is 100% used, see http://img144.imageshack.us/img144/9103/rtgimgphpvi3.png
Than I watch in var/tmp and find some bad code, files and scripts in which are some hacker email addresses and some IPs. In some file I see and some IRC BOT script. In some are logs in which see attempts of logins.....
I am looking for a reliable dedicated server provider that allows IRC. I am looking for something under 100 dollars. My budget is 100 dollars, not a cent more. I am not concerned about management levels. Managed or un-managed doesn't matter. I would prefer a U.S. based location.
1. Dont ask me what specs I am looking for; the under $100 budget will dictate the specs.
2. Yes, I am aware that there have been two topics about dedicated servers that allow IRC in the recent past. I was unable to find a host from those topics.
3. Yes, I am sure I am looking for a dedicated. Don't post links to shell providers.
4. I am about 99% sure, I will not purchase a dedicated server from your sig. If you don't have something useful to say, please don't say it at all.
5. I'm not looking for someone to tell me that its hard to find a dedicated server that allows IRC under 100 dollars. I am also fully aware that most dedicated providers don't allow IRC. On top of that I understand WHY a lot of providers don't allow IRC. Please don't post if your only going to say why IRC isn't allowed.
6. I have checked the offers sections. No luck. Please don't tell me to check the offers section.
7. I am looking for a dedicated server under 100-dollars. That's the bottom line. Thanks for reading the entire post Wait! Did I tell you thanks for reading the entire post?
I'm looking for a VPS anywhere but in the US, and preferably in EU. It must allow IRC and have over 128mb RAM. Bandwidth isn't a problem, 5-10GB is plenty. IPv6 (doesn't need to be native) is a must, so I am looking at Xen systems.
Requirements:32 of RAM typical usage; enough burst to run gcc to compile IRCd
No control panel required Linux or BSD Not much disk space required aside from OS install (1-2GB?) Enough CPU to run UnrealIRCd with approximately 20-30 users on a private network. Typical bandwidth usage 1GB. Would like perhaps 2-5GB just in case. Budget approximately $10 a month Canada/USA based Self managed Reliable network and server Only need 1 IP
Will not be running any httpd or such, only IRCd and a BNC process.
Is this too much to ask for at this price point?I have tried some providers, they failed at #5 and #10.
I am currently using a VPSland windows 2003 vps, and noticed that on IRC, (via mIRC), i can't really connect to irc ports such as 6667, etc, but i can connect through other uncommon ports like 8080, or BNC ports. Does anybody know how to enable those irc ports on the windows vps?
Currently looking for a UK based VPS provider that allows IRC. 256-512mB of RAM, only about 5gB of HDD space required, maybe 10gB. Being at UK Solutions is a big plus, but not a requirement. Will be hosting IRC shell accounts for BNCs, Eggdrops and various IRC clients.
At least 10 IPs would also be a plus. Not certain on budget yet.
I'm looking for an affordable (a.k.a. fairly cheap) stable dedi that allows IRC. It will mainly be used to host a few websites, but it needs to be IRC allowed as well (the irc portion will be very small). Does anyone know any good hosts? Most of the cheaper hosts I've looked into don't allow IRC at all .
- IRC allowed - US preferably; not necessary - Managed or un-managed, doesn't matter - Decent price - Need somewhere around 20-35 IPs
while selecting a VPS for my new project I often see "IRC is not allowed" in the Acceptable usage policies. I wonder why? The policies rarely mention BitTorrent or other "controversial" services but IRC is in ~50% of them.
I only seldom use IRC and if I do it's only for a regular chatting. So I don't quite get why is IRC is so evil?
