Subject of Consultation

ARIN received a suggestion to allow CIDR style queries to the ARIN WHOIS directory service. In addition to this enhancement, ARIN would like to explore other possible modifications that the community desires. ARIN requests that you provide specific feedback as to what additional WHOIS enhancements would benefit you and why they are needed.

ARIN Actions

The feedback provided will be used to develop the WHOIS improvement project. We anticipate beginning work on this project in the 1st quarter of 2008.
