Resource Registration Service
IRINN's main purpose is the allocation and registration services for IPv4 & IPv6 addresses, Autonomous System or AS numbers and related Whois Database for IP address look-up and reverse DNS delegation.
Various policies are applicable at the time of application so that the management of the allocation and assignment of IPv4/IPv6 address space is easy, the administration smooth and the allocation fair. Therefore the allocation policies are based on the principles of neutrality, impartiality and openness.
To ensure faster processing smaller sized ISPs should apply for IP address through LIRs or agents of IRINN, however applications for larger quantity of IP addresses (/24 and more) must be addressed to IRINN directly.
Evaluations for all resource applications are based on current and provisionally-active policies. IP address space is not reserved during the application process.
IPv4 and IPv6 allocation:
One of IRINN's role is the allocation or assignment of IP address space to organizations. Address spaces are assigned to organizations for specific use within their Internet infrastructure. These assignments are made for specific, documented purposes only and the addresses can not be re-distributed or sub-assigned by the organizations further.
Address space is considered allocated when an Internet registry or other organization is given the right to use address space for subsequent distribution as either a customer assignment or portable allocation. In both cases, all IPv4 and IPv6 address space distribution must conform to the goals of address space management.
An affiliation is payable on an annual basis for the same and it is computed on the basis of the address resources required by the incumbent organization. In case of renewal of affiliation, the annual fees is calculated on the basis of the resources held by the organization.
It must be noted that the fees for IPv4 and IPv6 components are calculated separately, however the higher of the two amounts is chargeable as the annual fees.
An affiliate's total IPv4 address holdings, including that were transferred from APNIC to IRINN and those of IRINN-allocated address space, will be used to assess the IPv4 component of the annual affiliation fee as follows:
Fee IPv4 = 25,000 x 1.35 ^ (log2(number of addresses)-8)
An affiliate's total IPv6 address holdings, including that were transferred from APNIC to IRINN and those of IRINN-allocated address space, will be used to assess the Ipv6 component of the annual affiliation fee as follows:
Fee IPv6 = 21,999*1.35^ (log2(number of addresses)-22)
Autonomous System (AS) number assignments
IRINN shall deem an organization eligible for AS Number assignment if it operates at multiple locations and has a clearly defined routing policy, which is different from the routing policies of its service providers.
An organization shall also be considered eligible if it can demonstrate that it will meet the above criteria upon receiving an AS number.
