Board Adopts New Fee Schedule Effective 1 July 2013

Posted: Wednesday, 20 February 2013

At their meeting on 7 January 2013, the ARIN Board of Trustees adopted a new Fee Schedule that will be effective 1 July 2013.

The changes to the fee schedule include:

    • Aligning the IPv4 and IPv6 fee schedules for ISPs into a single set of registration services plans based on total resources held
    • A per address block and per ASN maintenance fee schedule for end users
    • A new, very low-cost category (i.e. XX-Small) for the smallest organizations
    • Transfer fees have increased and associated costs have been clarified

These changes will help balance overall fees so that customers receiving comparable services are paying comparable fees where feasible, and to reduce, where possible, the costs for smaller ISPs.

The pending Fee Schedule is available at:

ARIN is in the process of developing a calculation tool to allow customers to view their new fees, and expects that tool to be available through ARIN Online prior to the April 2013 Public Policy Meeting.
