What is an IRC Bouncer?

An IRC Bouncer is a piece of software that is used to relay traffic and connections on an IRC network.  Using an IRC Bouncer allows a user to hide the original source of their connection. Additionally, an IRC Bouncer may be used to allow a client to remain in a channel while disconnected (i.e. their computer is rebooting, internet connectivity is down, etc).  The IRC Bouncer software used by Virtual Hosting Company allows for multiple clients to connect to one session, thereby allowing users to access the same network connection across multiple computers.
