Bans can be by IP address or the reverse resolved host name of the

In future if this happens again;

1.  avoid repeatedly connecting, as this may increment a counter in
a defense system making the host name banned for longer,

2.  use an IRC client program rather than a web service; this will use
the IP address of your internet service instead of the IP address of
the web gateway,

3.  try a different internet service; this should give you a different
IP address that may not be banned, although that depends on the width
of the ban,

4.  disconnect, turn off, and turn on your internet service; this
may give you a different IP address which may not be banner, (this is
only practical if you have control of your service, and any other
users of your service are notified),

5.  try a virtual private network (VPN) service; this will give you a
different IP address,

6.  try again next day or next week; the ban may have expired if it
hasn't been extended (see #1).

Note that actions #3, #4, and #5 should be preceeded by action #2.
