Shell Host Compatibility

From the makers of InspIRCd.

This page lists shell providers known to work and not to work with InspIRCd. Where a shell provider does not work correctly with InspIRCd, the reasons why are listed, so that the issue can be resolved by the shell hosting company.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The lack of a listing of a service here does not indicate that the shell host does/does not support InspIRCd. It simply means that we have not yet received any information. If you know of any other hosts that work please contact us on IRC.


* Dirty IP addresses are those previously targetted by botnets. You may experience bot problems if you start an ircd on a 'dirty' IP.
