Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2021.1 upon receipt, requesting that ARIN remove the limitation of 256 results or increase the number of results available when returning the list of network records that are managed by an organization. We are currently reviewing your suggestion and will issue our response as soon as possible.

This suggestion appears to be a duplicate of ACSP Suggestion 2012.20: Remove result limit for Whois-RWS child network queries, which requests support for allowing queries to return more than 256 network records (the current limitation). That suggestion is awaiting prioritization and has not yet been scheduled on ARIN’s Work Plan. Thank you for participating in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. Your suggestion will remain open until implemented.
