NickServ

Main article: NickServ

NickServ allows you to register a nickname and prevent others from using it. The commands sent to this service allow for registration and maintenance of nicknames.

ChanServ

Main article: ChanServ

ChanServ allows you to register and control various aspects of channels. ChanServ can often prevent malicious users from "taking over" channels by limiting who is allowed channel operator privileges.

MemoServ

Main article: MemoServ

MemoServ is a utility allowing IRC users to send short messages to other IRC users, whether they are online at the time or not, or to channels(*). Both the sender's nickname and the target nickname or channel must be registered in order to send a memo.

HostServ

Main article: HostServ

HostServ provides users with a way to set a vanity hostname instead of their usual cloaked hostname. There are rules that must be followed when using this service. These are described in further detail on the VHost page.

BotServ

Main article: BotServ

BotServ is the service that maintains custom services' bots for channels. It provides a basic framework for setting up a custom basic bot for users who can't make their own, can't host their own, or just simply prefer the convenience of having a services-controlled bot. BotServ bots will sit indefinitely in their assigned channels even if they are otherwise empty, so they can be used to keep channels open.

DenServ [DEFUNCT]

Main article: DenServ

DenServ was a Xertion network stats bot that logged channels and updated that data every 24 hours. It no longer exists, as it has been superseded by Anope 2.0's stats functionality.
