Call to populate AFRINIC’s Internet Routing Registry (IRR) with objects

Until the launch of AFRINIC's IRR in 2013, members were encouraged to use the RIPE IRR to register their routing objects.  We are now calling on all members to populate the AFRINIC IRR with their objects.

Please visit the page Creating Route object to register your route objects in the AFRINIC IRR. 

To facilitate the transition process and ensure smooth manipulation of existing data in RIPE IRR, AFRINIC will offer IRR Boot camps to all interested members.  The Boot camps aim to equip members with the information needed to create new and accurate entries in AFRINIC IRR.

Boot camps will commenced during the week of September 15th, 2014.  

Please contact us if you would like to participate in one of our boot camp by sending an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it "> This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

A list of AFRINIC's members' route objects registered in the RIPE IRR has been generated to enable you decide what to replicate into AFRINIC IRR.  Members are advised to use this list to crosscheck the objects we were able to identify in preparation for populating them into AFRINIC IRR.  The list is published here.

Please note that no objects already created in RIPE IRR will be replicated by AFRINIC before a member participates in a boot camp.

For more information please visit the AFRINIC IRR web page.  If you have any questions or comments please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

AFRINIC launches new version of WHOIS


On Saturday 30 August 2014, AFRINIC deployed a new code for its WHOIS database, WHOIS 2.0 (v 1.73).

This version is fully IPv6 compatible and enables update via the command line interface as well as a RESTful API. In addition, with the deployment of WHOIS 2.0,  the AFRINIC team has also implemented two policies that were recently ratified:

1. AFPUB-2012-V4-001-DRAFT-01 Anycast Assignments in the AFRINIC region 

2. AFPUB-2012-DNS-001-DRAFT-02 No Reverse Unless Assigned

 

We hope that WHOIS 2.0 will contribute greatly to the management of Internet number resources in our region.
