IRC.TL's software (Before on the former daemon xOP existed, not anymore though):
InspIRCd (Click me!)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Register a nick:
Fill in your information in the fields, when you're opening your IRC client for the first time, web-based or external.

Note:
A registered nick is deleted automatically along with its vhost if you don't log-in on irc.tl within 30 days.
(Source: https://www.irc.tl/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=85)

A tip is to type /ns vacation if you're going to be away from irc.tl network, then it won't be deleted for 90 days.

How to register it
After you've logged in to IRC.TL, type: /ns register [your desired password] and [your e-mail], now an e-mail is sent from the network to your e-mail and also it explains how you shall proceed, right after you've used /ns register successfully.

In order to register your account, just wait for an activation e-mail, check junkmail for it and if it doesn't come, pay a visit at #operhelp or #help and ask for help and when it comes, type in the information from the mail (If it don't come, Operators can help you.).

Note: Remember to always do: /ns identify [your chosen password] or /msg NickServ Identify [password] each and every time you log-in to the server, to activate your vhost, registered nickname.

Changing your password:
/ns SETPASS [account] [key] [newpass]

How make a vhost of your nick at irc.tl:

How to get vHost:
a) Register your nick first.

b) Then you have to type in /hs request [vhost name] .

c) Example: /hs request Duck.Pretty and just wait, operators will activate/accept it and you'll see when it's done (can take from minutes, to hours to days) and when you /ns identify your registered nick you'll see if it's activated or not.

Note: You can't pick: /hs request .users or .staff, .admin, .irc.t, they're reserved to staff and if you want to put your website, you have to own it and you can't end with a dot. (So I heard few years ago, maybe changed though)

Common IRC commands:
(Rember that you can script/save and get plugins to your IRC and you can modify colors too, often, modules etc and that not every command works on each client or server and there's different commands at clients/networks.)

More about IRC commands/Information:

InspIRCd Commands which IRC.TL use:
https://wiki.inspircd.org/Commands

IRC.TL Help documents:
https://www.irc.tl/viewforum.php?f=5&p=1

Short-cuts to commands:
/ns = NickServ [Example: /msg NickServ Help = /ns help]
/cs = ChanServ [Example: /msg ChanServ Help = /cs help]
/bs = BotServ [Example: /msg BotServ Help = /bs help]

Quick list of commands:

/me [msg]= Send your nickname and message like a shout to main-chat.
/notice NICK MSG = Send someone a short message, without opening /query or any private windows.
/query NICK MSG = Opens a private window, you can discuss privately.
/mode YOUR NICK and +I = Hide/mask which channels you are on
/memoserv read [number] if you've gotten an error message.
---------------------------------------------------
/list = List of current channels.
/join or /j # = Join a channel
/hop = You're re-joining the channel.
/part = You're leaving a channel.
/quit /quit [reason] /leave or /q = You're disconnected from the IRC server.
/close = Closes your # - Channel, not the client itself.
/clear = Clear the current # you're at, only for you to see.
/nick [nick] = Changes your nickname.
/away = You're AFK.
/whois [nick] = You can see information about someone.
/whowas [nickname] =Get some information about a disconnected user.
/ns info [nickname] = Get some informations about IRC user.
/ns ajoin add [#Channel] = Auto-join to a channel.
/ns ajoin del [#Channel] = Delete your # from auto-join list.
/ns ajoin list = Displays the auto-join list.

/ns ghost [nick] = Used when you're pinged out/disconnected and your identified nick is still on. NickServ will then kill your ghost so you can use your registered nick again.

Also ghosting only works on an identified nickname.

Quick voice/devoice:
!devoice for -v and !voice for +v.

To ban:
/mode #channel +b nickname/hostname

To unban:
/mode #channel -b nickname/hostname
(Type /whois [nick] nickname to see hostname)

Kick someone:
/kick [#channel] [nickname] [reason]

To add someone's rank:
/cs access [#channel] add [nick] [level]
/cs [rank] [#your channel name ] add [name of the user]

Note: You can check all of the ranks for an user if you scroll further down.

Remove a player's rank:
/cs [rank] [#your channel name ] del [name of the user]

Create Your Own Channel:

Join a channel:
/j #YourPlayerName (for instance)

Register the channel:
/cs register [#channelname] [password] [short description about the channel]

Identify channel:
(/cs identify [#channelname] [channelpassword]

If you identify your nick, which means you must be registered to irc.tl network, it will remember the founder automatically.

Info about channel: (From #help channel at irc.tl credits to Evocator)
<+Evocator>If anyone with the flags +FHORafhoqrsv joined the channel, the expiration date will be refreshed.
So basically, if one registered user, who's at the channel's access list and logs in, it won't expire.
(Source: https://www.irc.tl/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=85)

Renaming a channel:
1)You can't change #'s name as it is right now, so that's why you need to register a new # and delete your old #.

2) Suggested at #help at irc.tl credits by helper BCG200:
<BCG2000> Register a new channel with the name you desire. Then on your
old channel execute this command: /mode #oldchannel +lL 1 #newchannel
<BCG2000> Replace #oldchannel with your old channel name, #newchannel with your
new channel name.
So you can do like how #help and #irchelp are, if you type #irchelp you're redirected to the to #help.

Deleting a channel:
Type /msg ChanServ DROP # [The channel name]

And confirm it by typing the confirmation code and, follow instructions.

How to check the access information for your channel:
Type /cs access #channel list.

Many times HOP and above can do this, depends on the channel's mode, so you can get a "You're not authorised to perform this action" message which means you can't see the list.

Invite an user to your channel
Type: /invite [nickname] [#channel's name]

Channel info:
/msg ChanServ info [#Channel name]

Ownership:

Information:
/msg ChanServ Help owner

Owner of a channel:
Add: /cs owner [#Channel] [nick]
Remove: /cs deowner [#Channel] [nick]

Only commands for owners/founders and you can deown or own yourself and in that case you don't need to type in [nick] at those commands above and if you do this to another, they must be at your channel.

Multiple owners:

Add: /cs flags [#Channel] [Nick] -(+)* = Remember you can't add/del the founder, so better founder does this.
Remove: /cs flags [#channel] [nick] +(-)*

(/cs FLAGS [channel] [target] [flags])

Type /msg ChanServ HELP FLAGS for a full list of commands.

Transfer owner:
/cs set [#channel] founder [nickname]

Cancel transfer:
Type /cs set [#channel] founder [Your nickname] if you want it back.

Set founder of the channel:
a) /cs set [#channel] founder [nickname] adds the founder/owner of the channel.

( /msg ChanServ SET #[Channel] FOUNDER [Nickname]. )

Channel Modes:
Only registered users can enter your channel:
Use /mode # +R for only registered users to irc.tl or -R for not registered ones.

Only fellas with voice can talk:
Add: /mode [#name] m (or +m)
Remove it: /mode [#name] -m

Quickly you can just double-click at the window and pick manually, at least at some clients.

Modes explanation here:
https://wiki.inspircd.org/Channel_Modes
https://wiki.inspircd.org/User_Modes

SET:
SET allows you to set various control flags, for channels that change the way certain operations are performed on them.
Type /cs help set for more information.

Command: /cs SET [#channel] [setting] [parameters]

Flags:
Type /msg ChanServ help flags

Examples: /cs flags [channel] [target] [flags] or /cs set [#channel] [setting] [parameters].

Auto-voice in your channel when users join:

Add: /msg ChanServ flags #chan *!*@* +vV
Remove it: /msg ChanServ flags #chan *!*@* -vV

Template:
The TEMPLATE command allows definition of sets of flags.
Simplifying the use of the FLAGS command.
This got similarities to former xOP.

Type /cs help template for more info.

Command: /cs template [#Channel] [nick] [target flags]

Various of channel commands (entry msg, url, secure topic/channel etc):

a) If you want to keep your topic when you /q /close /hop, do: /cs SET [Channel] KEEPTOPIC ON

b) If you wish to put # URL do this (leave parameter to delete): /msg chanserv set #Channel URL c) [u]How to create an entry message ... /CloudBot/

Almost a complete list of every available command (note that not all cmds are activated on #cnr):


More info: $help [command] (After you've invited the BOT blaster to your channel you can use this command.)

$help Various of commands list pops up. (After you've invited the BOT blaster to your channel you can use this command.)

$about About the current version of CloudBot. (After you've invited the BOT blaster to your channel you can use this command.)

IRC bouncer/BNC:

You can get a "IRC bouncer" too, but it's quite not that needed, but with this, you won't miss chat, when you're offline, but who cares actually, but I thought to mention it, just google or youtube it.

More about BNC:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BNC_(software)

Modes/Ranks for your #:
color=red]~ Owner/Founder[/color] = +q is owner and +qo is founder mode.
SOP (SuperOP) = & (Higher admin: +ao mode.)
AOP(AutoOP) = @ (OP or moderator: +o mode.)
HOP(HalfOp)= % (Half-OP: +h mode.)
VOP(VoiceOP) = + (Voice rights: +v mode.)

And if you got none of these above, you're just a regular user at the channel you're at.

Issuing channel rank:

Add user: /cs access [#your channel name ] add [name of the user] [rank/level]
Remove user: /cs [rank] [#your channel name ] del [name of the user]

Remember also that this won't work if a player isn't registered on the specific IRC server and have a BOT assigned to your channel so the user will get his/her rank each time when log in.

Modes/Roles/Access level/Ranks:

Voice: VOP
Half-op: HOP
OP: @ = AOP
Super-OP: & = SOP
Founder/Owner: ~ = (Check how to add ~owner/s at 'Ownership'.)

Have fun! :)
