Nickname is a nickname or a fancy name behind whose anonymity, for example, a participant in the Internet Relay Chat( IRC) hides. The IRC pseudonym, the nickname, is managed by the nick server.

The nicknames managed by the nick server can be avatars or IRC pseudonyms of chatters. If you register your nickname directly from the nickserver, it remains protected even after you leave the IRC program. If a nickname has been registered by a nick server, the user has to identify himself to the IRC server every time he logs in.
