General FAQs related to AFRINIC activites

AFRINIC is not involved in domain name registration. Your ISP may be able to help you register a domain name. For more information about TLDs (Top Level Domains) and ccTLDs (Country Code Top Level Domain) registrations, please visit the ICANN website

The redistribution of the provided bulk data is also explicitly forbidden.

If your organsiation usage of the data comply with thes terms and conditions then submit a request for AFRINIC Bulk Whois Data.

The Bulk WHOIS request form can be downloaded from here. Complete the form by filling all the required details. As the hostmaster will approve the request only if the requester has provided all the necessary information required for Bulk WHOIS. The completed form should be either fax to AFRINIC Ltd on +230 466 6758 or sent via email to hostmaster@AFRINIC.net. As soon as the request is approved the hostmaster will send you the link to access the Bulk WHOIS along with the user name and password. 

 

AFRINIC does not support the "rwhois" protocol formerly available to members from the ARIN service region. All (re)assignments and sub-allocations MUST be recorded in the AFRINIC whois database according to the procedure detailed here.

Abusive behaviour regarding whois queries will automatically be blocked. The  process is detailed in Section1.7 of the database reference manual.

 

AFRINIC does not guarantee that any address space it allocates will be globally routable. This is because the filtering policies implemented by transit providers around the world are beyond our control. The best way to avoid filtering problems is to ensure that your network is numbered into the address range of a larger network , so that many addresses can be aggregated and announced globally as a single route. The shorter prefix of such a global route will increase its chances of being unaffected by the filtering policies of large transit providers. We have carried out extensive tests to ensure that the minimum allocation (/22) from AFRINIC blocks is not filtered.
