Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2014-4
Remove 4.2.5 Web Hosting Policy

Date: 25 March 2014

AC's assessment of conformance with the Principles of Internet Number Resource Policy:

"Draft Policy ARIN-2014-4: Remove 4.2.5 Web Hosting Policy enables fair and impartial number resource administration by removing a no-longer-relevant section of the NRPM. The change in this draft policy has proven
uncontroversial thus far, consisting of one statement of support
and no opposition."

Problem Statement:

Section 4.2.5 is technology-specific language that is not current with modern network operation needs and practices. We should remove it to make NRPM clearer.

Policy statement:

Remove section 4.2.5.

Comments:
a.Timetable for implementation: Immediate
b.Anything else:

4.2.5. Web Hosting Policy

When an ISP submits a request for IP address space to be used for IP-based web hosting, it will supply (for informational purposes only) its technical justification for this practice. ARIN will analyze this data continuously, evaluating the need for future policy change.

Date of Assessment:

1. Summary (Staff Understanding)

This proposal would remove existing policy NRPM 4.2.5 as it is “technology specific language” that is obsolete and not in sync with current network practices.

2. Comments

A. ARIN Staff Comments

· If this policy were removed from NRPM, ARIN staff would still be able to require technical justification for web hosting based on the overall requirement to show efficient use as outlined in NRPM section 4.

· This proposal could be implemented as written.

B. ARIN General Counsel - Legal Assessment

The policy does not create legal concerns.

3. Resource Impact

· Updated guidelines and internal procedures

· Staff training
