My domain name as my IRC hostname?


When I connect to any IRC server, it's usually my ISP IP address/hostname. I own a domain, but I'm not using it for anything (no web hosting service or server). Is it possible for me to use my domain as my IRC hostname instead of my regular ISP hostname?

If your domain named resolves to your public IP, then when you login from that IP it should show your domain name.
