In early 2009, the network was founded by Henry Cole, owner of Hencogroup Enterprises running on a small home-based server. Later on that year, the server was moved to a strong Virtual Private Server in a datacenter in Manchester, kindly donated by co-owner iYorkie. Several other servers were then donated, oper being given out for donating a server and finally Infinity-IRC had been born! It now contains several powerful servers.
In early 2010, SocialNerd merged with Infinity-IRC, making Infinity even bigger! CEO of SocialNerd (Christopher Orcard) became one of the main server admins and a larger network was born.
