 A core DNS service provider is a company who provides DNS service for the root level of the DNS tree (ICANN-sanctioned root operators).

 

 AFRINIC is bound by Section 4(g) of the Registration Service Agreement (RSA) to non disclosure of any information that we receive from our members. The AFRINIC hostmaster team usually requests for supporting information to verify the information given in the online registration process.  The documentation supplied will be used solely to evaluate the requests against the AFRINIC policies in place.

AFRINIC needs funds to sustain its operations , and therefore bills its members a fee calculated on the type and number of resources they hold. The AFRINIC fees schedule is available online . The fees may change from year to year according to operational costs and financial health of the organisation and upon validation by the Board of Directors.

 Legacy resources are those Internet number resources obtained prior to or otherwise outside the current hierarchical Internet registry system. When AFRINIC inherited members and records from RIPE NCC, ARIN and APNIC, it was established that each of these RIRs had different parameters for classifying legacy resource holders.

Although there is no contractual relationship and obligation between legacy resources holders and AFRINIC, legacy resources holders still benefit from AFRINIC registry service support such as WHOIS, reverse DNS and the Internet Routing Registry. They do not however benefit from access to the MyAFRINIC Portal and the services it offers.  AFRINIC provides supports only to its members that signed a contractual (Registration Services) agreement with AFRINIC. There are currently around 350 legacy resources holders registered in the AFRINIC WHOIS  database.

AFRINIC encourages legacy resource holders to become AFRINIC members and to take advantage of all services it offers to its members.
