ARIN recovers the cost of its registry operations through annual fees charged to registry customers. All new ARIN customers must sign a Registration Services Agreement (RSA) to receive registry services.
In accordance with the RSA, all fees paid to ARIN are non-refundable. Fees may not be prorated, are nontransferable, and must be paid in full. All fees are payable in USD (United States Dollar) only.
Registration Services Plan
Organizations requesting Internet number resources (IPv4, IPv6, or Autonomous System Numbers [ASNs]) must pay the annual fee for their Registration Services Plan (RSP) as determined by the service category table below at the time the initial request for number resources is approved. This payment is considered an initial fee when an organization is receiving number resources for the first time from ARIN and will establish the anniversary date for future annual RSP payments. Future annual payments will be based on the appropriately sized RSP category as determined by the aggregate Internet number resources held on the anniversary date.
RSP Service Categories and Fees
The table below displays the annual Registration Services Plan fee per service category for ARIN customers. The aggregate block size consists of the total Internet number resource (IPv4, IPv6, or Autonomous System Numbers [ASNs]) holdings of an organization.

*There is a temporary IPv6 fee waiver for organizations in the 3X-Small service category allowing for more IPv6 resources than normal while still remaining in the 3X-Small service category and paying only the 3X-Small service category fee. A 3X-Small organization may receive registry services for up to a /36 of total IPv6 space and remain in the 3X-Small service category rather than being charged the 2X-Small service category fee. This waiver will expire 31 December 2026.
Transactional fees are for those services that are not covered under a Registration Services Plan. These fees are non-refundable.

Legacy Resource Service Agreement (LRSA)
Organizations with resources held under a LRSA receive the same Registration Services Plan for their legacy resources with the only difference being that ARIN provides a fee cap on total annual fees for organizations with active Legacy Registration Services Agreements (LRSA) entered into prior to 1 January 2024. The total annual fees applicable to those legacy resource holder organizations are limited to $200 annually for 2024, regardless of the number of IPv4 legacy resources held under a LRSA, and those organizations will continue to have their fees capped for legacy resources. ARIN will increase the annual cap of registry fees for these customers by $25 per year.
Any legacy resources brought under agreement after 1 January 2024 are covered under the regular Registration Services Plan fees, with no fee cap.
