Apply for Internet resources

 

As a Regional Internet Registry, the allocation and assignment of Internet number resources is AFRINIC's core activity.

 

All information related to IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, AS numbers and reverse delegations are registered in the AFRINIC database and made publicly available through our Whois database.

 

Note: AFRINIC provides only IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, AS numbers, and reverse DNS delegations to networks in the AFRINIC service region. AFRINIC does not provide domain name registration services.

Below is a summary of all the internet number resources from which AfriNIC allocates/assigns to its members. Numbers held by every RIR are issued by IANA (The Internet Assigned Numbers' Authority). Some numbers below had been allocated to some RIRs by IANA before AfriNIC recognition. These RIRs reserved the same numbers for allocation within Africa, hence, AfriNIC taking such resources over.
