Registering

The first step on your journey to identification is to register your nickname. To do this, type as follows into your IRC client:

 /msg NickServ REGISTER password email@email.com

Of course, "password" should be your password, as with the email address shown.

After you do this, check your email for one from EsperNet, in the email will be a code to verify your email, it will look like this:

 /msg NickServ VERIFY REGISTER nickname myjrweonvhab

Once again, "nickname" is your nick, and the letters following are the secret code in the email.

Identifying

When you start up your IRC client and connect to EsperNet, you are going to then identify yourself using the password you set earlier, to do this, type:

 /msg NickServ IDENTIFY password

Most modern IRC clients allow you to automatically identify with NickServ, refer to your client's documentation for more info.

Enforcing your Nick

If you really want to make sure no one uses your nick, you can have NickServ enforce it while you are away, to set this, simply put:

 /msg NickServ SET ENFORCE ON

This will cause anyone trying to use your nick to be changed to a Guest nick, such as "Guest1337" and also warn you of the intruder
