The RealIRC Network

RealIRC is a network dedicated to bringing stable servers, services and a stable irc environment to its users. We are a relatively small network, established in 1999 and have been going strong ever since. We run our own IRCd (RealIRCd) which is based off of ircd-ratbox with many modifications and additions developed by our staff.

Why join a small network like RealIRC?

Since our network is small, we can provide more attention and protection to you and your channel. If any problems were to arise, upon your request, we will deal with it swiftly.

Apart from the above, our staff consists of skilled IRCops, that have been working with IRC for many years. You'll always find someone ready to help aid you with any problems in our main channel, #RealIRC.

Our staff are friendly and co-operative will not bother you or your channel (such as OP'ing ourselves or kicking users from your channel) and we will stay away from your channel if you want us to, unless of course our attention is needed there for the safety of the network.

What are the stats for RealIRC

We currently have five stable servers (not including services and protection servers) linked to the network that are capable of maintaining thousands of users. Feel free to view our existing server list. If you wish to link a server into the existing network, please visit our link application section.

We do use our own IRCd, RealIRCd as described above. It is constantly being developed to provide a better IRC environment for the user, in terms of security and stability.

Our proxyscanner will stop clones and unsecure proxies from connecting, which greatly helps to stop flooding. Guardbot, which was coded by Mephisto (one of the Network Administrators), also deals with flood attempts and clones even before they get a chance to join a channel. Then, of course, we have NickServ, ChanServ, and MemoServ.

Overall, we pride ourselves on the protection we offer as we have spent much time on developing and perfecting it. If by chance our services fail, we have more than capable IRCops that span around the globe to take care of the situation.

Sounds good. How do I get there?

Simply type "/server" in your IRC client or select "RealIRC: random server" from your mIRC options and hit "Connect".

We, at the RealIRC Network, look forward to seeing you there!
