ARIN Reiterates Availability of IP Address Space Transfers According to Community Policy

April 4, 2011 by · Comments Off on ARIN Reiterates Availability of IP Address Space Transfers According to Community Policy 

Hosting ReviewsChantilly, VA – In response to press interest in the matter, the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) reiterates its continued support for IP address space allocations and transfers to organizations that have documented need. ARIN is the Regional Internet Registry that manages Internet Protocol (IP) number resources in the United States, Canada, and parts of the Caribbean.  While organizations of all types make use of IP address space, Internet service providers and hosting companies require additional IP address space on an ongoing basis to serve new customers (note that IP addresses, also known as “Internet addresses” are the numeric identifiers used by computers connected to the Internet, for example “198.51.100.76”)

The central free pool of available IPv4 addresses became fully depleted on 3 February 2011. Going forward, each region has a finite supply of available IPv4 address space that can be allocated to qualified organizations.  ARIN still has IPv4 address space available within the region, and qualifying organizations with documented need will be allocated a three-month supply of IPv4 addresses in accordance with community-developed policies.  These policies for IP address allocation have been developed by the community to encourage availability of IP address space while recognizing the technical limitations on address space routing in the global Internet.
