English term or phrase: vanity IRC reverse DNS records
As a policy, X (Webhosting-Anbieter) will not provide vanity IRC reverse DNS records. To enforce this policy X does not turn the reverse address of IPs over to the customer.

Reverse Lookups bzw. vanity IRC und DNS
Explanation:
The above is just a suggestion - I'm sure of the terms, but not my German - but I have not spoken German for years, so please check it out - but it will include these terms. (I wouldn't normally be answering these in German!)

How TCP/IP literate are you? You need to be to do this...

To be honest, IRC is IRC and will not be translated definitely, neither will DNS. You just need to find out what "reverse lookups" are in German.

http://cert.uni-stuttgart.de/doc/netsec/reverse-dns.php or you might find something on the German IRC website http://www.irc-mania.de/vanityhost.php

vanity IRC reverse lookups and reverse DNS are ways to trace the origin either of IRC or DNS - DNS resolves IP addresses to host names.

I hope this makes sense and helps.

I have just notice that you specialise in IT, so hopefully you know about network protocols and this makes some sense to you!
