Eggdrop is an IRC bot. It sits on a channel and takes protective measures to keep the channel from being taken over (in the few ways that anything can), to recognize banished users or sites and reject them, to recognize privileged users and let them gain ops, etc. You access your shell acount with a username and password, via a telnet connection or ftp; you then find yourself at a command prompt where you can execute various programs, manipulate files and check email. You upload your personal files (ie webpages or graphics) via FTP.
