What is ARIN?
ARIN or The American Registry for Internet Numbers is a member-based, non-profit organization which was founded in 1997. The main role of ARIN is to support the growth and operations of the Internet. This is achieved by providing its core service, which includes the distribution and management of Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs), Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, and other Internet number resources.
ARIN also handles the coordination of community policy development, consequently advancing the internet via data outreach.
ARIN is one of the five Regional Internet Registries (RIR) in the world, and its headquarters is located in Chantilly, Virginia.
In simple words, like the other four internet registries, ARIN:
- Provides services related to the technical coordination and management of Internet number resources.
- Works on facilitating policy development through its members and stakeholders.
- Participates in the Internet community.
- Serving as a non-profit organization
- Being run by an executive board that is elected by its members.
All of the previously mentioned points can be summed up in ARIN’s mission statement:
“Applying the principles of stewardship, ARIN, a nonprofit corporation, allocates Internet Protocol resources; develops consensus-based policies; and facilitates the advancement of the Internet through information and educational outreach.”
What is ARIN’s policy in regard to IP transfer?
According to ARIN policy, IP blocks can be transferred to members under RIPE, APNIC, or ARIN. Number transfer can be done when a company undergoes a merger or an acquisition. In the case of the latter, ARIN places no transfer processing requirement. However, In the case of in-policy transfers between ARIN members, the recipient is required to prove that their need for addresses is justified. If they live within the ARIN region, this demonstration may be provided within a time window of two years. Meanwhile, if they happen to be outside the service region (the United States, Canada, and many North Atlantic and Caribbean islands), a needs test would be performed by the concerned RIR, based on its own policy.
