ARIN Celebrates 8 Years in Service
Today, ARIN marks its eighth year of service to the Internet community. ARIN
was established in 1997 to provide Internet number resource registration
services to North America, South America, and subequatorial
Applying the principles of stewardship, ARIN, a nonprofit corporation, allocates Internet Protocol resources; develops consensus-based policies; and facilitates the advancement of the Internet through information and educational outreach.
The success of ARIN has been and continues to be a result of the commitment of many extraordinary individuals and organizations. Whether involved in the very establishment of ARIN as an RIR or just now getting an initial IPv6 allocation, the stakeholders in our region are a driving force in areas of policy, operations, and Internet research. On behalf of ARIN and its staff, I'd like to thank all those who have contributed to ARIN's success over the years and invite everyone to be involved in our exciting future.
