Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2016.03 upon confirmed receipt, requesting that we offer a web interface for RDAP. On 2 March 2019, ARIN deployed a new website that includes a combined search feature for the website and Whois, using RDAP. Because this work has been completed, we are closing your suggestion. Thank you for your participation in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process.
