I have public ip address (for example 188.8.131.52). When somebody type /who on irc channel he sees:
How can I hide under a domain? For example Linkas@mydomain.tk
Depending on the network you're connecting to, there are many ways to do this.
Some networks have a usermode
+x, which will mask your IP address. It requires you to have a registered account, on most networks. Once you've identified, you can do:
/mode YourNick +x
Some networks have the option to enable vhosts or cloaks. Enabling vhost will turn
Basically a Vhost a string of letters and numbers, with periods instead of spaces. Many networks have HostServ services, and enabling your vhost is really easy. Once you've identified, you can request a vhost:
/msg hostserv request vhost.goes.here
Some networks like freenode provide users with cloaks. It's used to show affiliation (or lack thereof) to a particular group or project, but it also masks your IP as a side-effect. To get a cloak, you can join the
#help channel for that network, and request a cloak there.
Some networks allow access via Tor. The instructions for setting up Tor on freenode network can be found in the links given below:
I hope this helps :)
