2022 Fee Schedule

(Proposed) Effective 1 January 2022

(Current version)

The ARIN Board of Trustees proposed the fee schedule below on 09 April 2021 with a consultation, open through 10 May 2021.

Overview

ARIN is responsible for maintaining accurate and complete registration of Internet number resources in accordance with the policies established by the Internet community.

To provide for an equitable cost recovery process, ARIN charges an initial transaction fee for the registration or transfer of Internet number resources and an annual fee for ongoing registration services. Organizations must sign the Registration Services Agreement (RSA)prior to being issued or transferred resources by ARIN.

In accordance with the RSA, all fees paid to ARIN are nonrefundable. Fees may not be prorated, are nontransferable, and must be paid in full. All fees are payable in USD (United States Dollar) only.

Service Categories and Fees

The table below displays the fees per service category for ARIN customers. There are initial and annual fees for ARIN services. All fees are charged per Organization Identifier (Org ID).

*Note: There is a temporary IPv6 fee waiver for organizations in the 3X-Small services category. A 3X-Small organization may receive up to a /36 and remain in the 3X-Small fee category. This waiver will expire 31 December 2026.

Note: The total annual fees applicable to legacy resource holder organizations are limited to $150 annually for 2022, regardless of the number of legacy resources held under a Legacy Resource Agreement (LRSA). ARIN will apply an increase to this annual cap of $25 per year.

Note: Not all prefix sizes shown in the table are necessarily directly available from ARIN under existing number resource policy. Please review the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) for applicable policy for obtaining Internet number resources. Under existing policy, ARIN’s minimum IPv6 delegation is a /40 allocation for qualifying ISPs and a /48 assignment for qualifying end users.

Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs)

An Autonomous System is a connected group of IP networks that adhere to a single unique routing policy that differs from the routing policies of your network’s border peers. An ASN is a globally unique number used to identify an Autonomous System.

An organization will be assessed an initial fee of $550 USD for each new ASN approved for them by Registration Services. After an ASN has been approved, ARIN will invoice for payment. Payment and the executed Registration Services Agreement (RSA) must be received before resources are issued. After the initial year of ASN use, organizations that hold only ASNs will be assessed a recurring annual fee of $150 USD per ASN.

Organization Create / Organization Recover Transactions

ARIN will collect a $100 USD, nonrefundable transaction processing fee for each Organization Create (OrgCreate) and each Organization Recovery (OrgRecovery) transaction submitted prior to the request being processed.

Resource Transfers

ARIN will collect a $500 USD, nonrefundable transfer processing fee for each transfer request of registration rights to Internet number resources as follows:

  • 8.2 Merger, Acquisition, and Reorganization transfers; billed to the source (or legal successor) organization.
  • 8.3 Transfers to Specified Recipients within the ARIN region; billed to the source-side organization. No specific transfer processing fee will be charged to the recipient-side organization. Refer to the Transfer Resources page for full details on requirements and the process for transferring registration rights to Internet number resources.
  • 8.4 Inter-RIR Transfers to Specified Recipients; a fee is billed to the source-side organization if within the ARIN region. No specific transfer processing fee will be charged to recipient-side organizations. Refer to the Inter-RIR Transfer Guidelines for full details on requirements and process.

The transfer processing fee will be invoiced to the source organization’s billing Point of Contact (POC) and is to be paid before evaluation of the transfer request begins. This fee does not guarantee approval of a transfer request.

For each transfer of registration rights to Internet number resources, the recipient organization must have an updated and executed Registration Services Agreement (RSA). Additionally, the recipient organization may be subject to an initial fee(s).

Transferred resources are also subject to annual fees as stipulated by the Fee Schedule, including registry maintenance fees or a corresponding Registration Services Plan. Additional fees may apply based on the status of the source or recipient organization at the time of transfer.

Specified Transfer Listing Service (STLS)

The fees for the STLS are independent of resource transfer fees and assessed separately, payable on approved application to the service:

  • Source and recipient organizations: a one-time $100 USD fee for each approved listing request, no annual fee requirement, meaning they will incur no additional charges until their needs are met or their resources transferred
  • Facilitator: pay an initial fee of $1,000 USD and a recurring annual fee of $1,000 USD to participate in the service

Should an STLS participant opt out of the service, ARIN charges a fee of $100 USD for reinstatement.

Refer to the STLS registration guidelines for full details on requirements and process.

Legacy Resource Service Agreement (LRSA)

Resources held under a LRSA are subject to the same fee schedule as all other customers, with the difference being that a fee cap is in place. The fee cap will automatically increase $25 USD per year until the organization is paying the equivalent of the fee category their Internet resources fall into.
