NickServ Commands

Register your nickname

This command registers your nickname into the Rizon database and makes sure no other user is able to use this nickname. However, Please be aware that nicks expire after 90 days of non-usage.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ REGISTER [password] [email]
    • Example: /msg NickServ REGISTER mypasswordatrizon
      • Please be aware that the email must be valid as confirmation number sent to this email must be verified in order for the registration process to complete.
  • Usage: /msg NickServ CONFIRM [confirmation code]
    • Example: /msg NickServ CONFIRM 20sik25t2

Cancel registration

This command will cancel the current registration request on your nickname. This is used when the email you used to register is invalid.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ CANCEL [password]
    • Please be aware that you will have to re-issue the registration command with a valid email, and then enter the confirmation code to register.

Resend confirmation code

This command resends the confirmation code to your registered email. If you entered invalid email address, you can use Cancel and re-register with your valid id.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ RESEND

Identify your nickname

Now that you have registered your nickname, it is very important to remember to identify EVERY TIME you access Rizon. The password in this case is the password you supplied during nick registration.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ IDENTIFY [password]
    • Example: /msg NickServ IDENTIFY mypasswordatrizon

Group nickname

This command groups your CURRENT nickname with your TARGET nickname.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ GROUP [TARGET] [password]
    • Please be aware that grouping your existing nick to a newnick will make your old nick and new nick loose all held privelleges in all channels.
      • Example: Your main nickname is OldNick which holds access to all your channels (op in some channel, voice in another etc) and you logonto rizon with NewNick, you would now like to have same permissions as your oldnick, you would have to do /msg NickServ group OldNick oldnickspassword.

Recover nickname

If you logon to Rizon and notice your Registered nickname is being used by another user. You can have services retreive this nickname for you through recover. Alteratively, you could use ghost in order to recover your nickname.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ RECOVER [nickname] [password]
    • Example: /msg NickServ RECOVER OldNick mypasswordatrizon

Following recover, services holds your nickname for one minute. In order to release your nickname sooner:

  • Usage: /msg NickServ RELEASE [nickname] [password]
    • Example: /msg NickServ RELEASE OldNick mypasswordatrizon


Ghost command is useful when a "ghost" of your nick is present on IRC. The ghost is not really connected but IRC assumes it to be. This could be due to various different reasons such as internet issue, abrupt shutdown, or another user using your nick. Unlike recover, ghost allows you to reclaim your nick right away.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ GHOST [nickname] [password]
    • Example: /msg NickServ GHOST OldNick mypasswordatrizon

Access List

This command lists the channels the nickname has access on:

  • Usage: /msg NickServ ALIST

Nick information

If you would like to know information about a nick which is registered (last time seen, when it was registered), you can use the command info.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ INFO [nick]
    • Example: /msg NickServ INFO OldNick
    • This will return Information about OldNick such as
    • -NickServ- OldNick is oldnick
    • -NickServ- Last seen address:
    • -NickServ- Time registered: Nov 27 13:29:55 2005 MST
    • -NickServ- Last seen time: Dec 13 09:54:12 2010 MST


If you would like to logout of services, you can use the command logout. This command makes you not recognized as the owner of the nick.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ LOGOUT
  • Note: You must be logged on in order to use this command.


Use this command If you would like to drop your nickname for any reason. Please note that the effects of this command are irreversible and you will loose ALL current access to all channels.

    • Example: /msg NickServ DROP OldNick
    • Note: As a security measure, You will be asked to verify drop command in order to complete the drop procedure.
