What is a hub?

A hub is used to provide multiple links to other IRC servers on your network. People tend to get a lower user IRC package to use as a hub as only admins & servers (ie. Unreal Shells, Services & Neostats) connect to a hub to keep the network stable. To ensure this you set your ports for hub on a different port than the default for Unreal (normally 6660-6669) & never add a hub to your dns.
