Welcome to WintersNet
WintersNet has existed, in one form or another, since early 2003. It was founded by Nathan Scott, who still actively maintains it to this day. In its present iteration, we exist to provide folks who may not have the means to procure bandwidth en-masse a premium web presence. We partner with several large networks (Microsoft, QuadraNet to name but two) and have servers and facilities spread across the globe. We are able to offer significantly reduced, or in many cases entirely free, bandwidth and infrastructure to those who qualify.
IRC was crucial to the founding of WintersNet. In recognition of this, WintersNet has always been heavily involved in sponsoring infrastructure to key IRC network partners.
To access the core WintersNet IRC environment, please point your IRC client to irc.wintersnet.net. We accept connections over the standard non-secure port alongside SSL connections over 6697.
