Question How do I register my Nickname?
Answer Nicknames are not owned on IRC4Fun.  If you preferred nickname is taken, you will need to use another one or wait until your preferred nickname is no longer in use.

You CAN however register a Username on IRC4Fun's Channel Service (X) which will authenticate you to your users, friends and channels.

Registering a Username with IRC4Fun's Channel Service (X) provides many benefits:
  • You can be added to registered channels' access lists.
  • You can apply for Registration of your own channel.
  • You can apply the "hidden host" that will cloak your @host to @Username.users.IRC4Fun.net.
  • Join certain channels that only allow registered (and logged in) users to /JOIN.
  • Talk in certain channels that only allow registered (and logged in) users to speak.
  • Send and Receive NOTEs from other registered users.
  • And so much more!
To register a Username with X, on IRC you will need to type: /msg X HELLO Username YourValid@Email.com YourValid@Email.com
To login to your Username with X, on IRC you will need to type: /msg X@services.IRC4Fun.net LOGIN Username Password

*It is important to understand that on IRC4Fun; Nicknames are not owned.  Usernames are what are used to identify/authenticate users.  Nicknames are on a first-come, first-served basis.  Since they have nothing to do with identification; there is no need to be worried if someone else is using your nickname – simply choose another.  You can change your nickname by typing /nick NewNickName
