  1. Type /nick YourScreenName and press Enter.
  2. Type /nickserv register YourPassword YourEmailAddress and press Enter.
  3. Check your email account for a confirmation email. It can take up to an hour. Near the bottom of the email you will find a link to make your registration permanent.

(Note: If you choose a nickname already taken on the server, you will get errors.)

You can now identify yourself by typing /msg nickserv@services.dal.net identify YourPassword after you logged onto the server. For a full documentation on registration and identification read the DALnet NickServ Registration guide.
