Internet number resources obtained prior to or otherwise outside the current hierarchical Internet Registry System are considered legacy resources. The RIPE NCC maintains and publishes registry data for resources held by members and legacy Internet resource holders in our service region. The RIPE NCC also provides reverse DNS delegation and a routing registry for IP address and AS Numbers, both of which include legacy Internet resources.
RIPE NCC Services to Legacy Internet Resource Holders
The recently accepted RIPE Policy Proposal, 2012-07, defined a framework for the RIPE NCC to offer registry services to legacy Internet resource holders.
