New ARIN Fee Schedule Implemented Today

Posted: Friday, 01 July 2016

Today ARIN implemented the new Fee Schedule adopted by the Board of Trustees on 10 December 2015. The new fee schedule is the outcome of a community-comprised fee review panel and community consultation process. The new Fee Schedule includes the following changes:

    • Creation of four new service categories; 3X-small, 3X-large, 4X-large, and 5X-large; these are intended to further recover ARIN's costs across a broader set of service categories that more closely align with the benefits received
    • Realignment of the IPv6 and IPv4 resource limits for each category to provide for more cost-effective IPv6 fees
    • End user, ASN-only, and Legacy organizations may now choose to receive additional ARIN services via a Registration Services Plan (the same services and fee package provided to ISPs)  – those which do so become ARIN Members (with associated voting rights in ARIN elections) as well as the capability to report reassignment information and/or provide utilization data via the Shared Whois Project (SWIP)

These changes further balance overall fees so that customers receiving comparable services are paying comparable fees where feasible, and also enable a reduction in many cases to the fees for smaller ISPs.

The new Fee Schedule is available at:

Please review the Fee Schedule FAQ for details on the changes:

ARIN has developed a tool to allow customers to view an estimate of their fees under the new schedule:

The fee calculator is provided as an aid for registrants to determine the potential amount of their annual fees. We do not guarantee its applicability or accuracy in regard to your individual circumstances.
