FAQ for Existing members

Each of the addresses ranges falling in any of the categories below constitute a separate assignment:

  • An end-site or customer with 4 or more IP addresses.
  • A subnet for your own network infrastructure
  • Any range from which IPs are dynamically assigned
Tags: assignment

The minimum sub-allocation size is /24, any range less than that should be registered as  an assignment (status is ASSIGNED PA)

An assignment with status Assigned PA is an inetnum object created by LIR to register the IP addresses that have given to specific customer or service. These IP addresses are only used by the customer or service and can't be further distributed to another customers. The minimum IP addresses per assignment PA is /30.

Both assignments and sub-allocations are objects created by LIR to indicate that specific IP range has been assigned to a customer. If the customer intends to further distribute the IP addresses to his own client then, the IP range should be registered as sub-allocation. If the customer will solely use the IP addresses for his own infrastructure then, the IP range should be registered as assignment.

AFRINIC members are encouraged to maintain the assignments to its customers. In case of sub-allocations, the request is redirected to the AFRINIC hostmasters for evaluation (Sub-allocation window of members = 0)

AFRINIC hostmasters will proceed to create the sub-allocation object as long as the member's  account is in good standing.

Yes, the assignments made out of a sub-allocated PA address space can be registered in the AFRINIC whois database using WHOIS e-mail update method. This functionality is not yet available from the myafrinic member portal.

The LIR member shall ensure that a maintainer is created for its customer & attached to the inetnum (SUB-ALLOCATED PA) to allow for the assignments to be registered.

The sub-allocated range is part of the LIR allocation and can't be transferred. If the customer is no longer your customer, the IP range must be returned to your free pool IP addresses. You must notify AFRINIC to delete the sub-allocation object by sending an e-mail to hostmaster@afrinic.net.

Emails to AFRINIC on the following email addresses (hostmaster@afrinic.net, new-member@afrinic.net, afrinic-dbm@afrinic.net & myafrinic-activate@afrinic.net) will be logged on our ticketing system and the sender will receive an automated response with a ticket number in the subject. Check your junk mail folder to confirm if you have received the automated response; if not call us at +230 403 51 00.
