We support hostname cloaking – that means:

* Your original hostname can be always cloaked (replaced with different string) for security reasons. This is enabled by default for both registered and unregistered users. You can deactive this by changing your UMODE to -x
* If you are registered user, you can additionaly request your personalized hostname

The rules for a cloak:

* Must contain your original nickserv username
* Needs to conform with standards for hostname
* Can’t pretend you are a staff member
* Shouldn’t be offensive to other users

To request a cloak:

See /msg hostserv help request for information
