Welcome to IRC Driven!

IRC Driven is a modern IRC indexing site and search engine. Originally started in 2006, inspired by the now defunct SearchIRC, and after several rewrites we are now evolving into a social media platform for IRC. Our goal is to bring awareness to IRC, help modernize the IRC platform and prove that IRC is not dead.

Network and channel owners, admins, operators and users can all interact with each other. Network and channels can be indexed, users can create profile, channels also get their own pages based on the network channel list. We provide several different tools to feature and highlight your network in many ways.

So what are you waiting for? Create an account, submit your network, add a quote, and create your profile today!

We had about a week of downtime because Google Domains decided to try and verify my email the one day I was doing email server maintenance in years, and suspended ALL of my domains including the ones I used for my email. I transferred my domains to GoDaddy (where I work), but the transfer took 5 days to complete. Sorry for the downtime.
