Becoming a Member of the RIPE NCC
Our members are referred to as "Local Internet Registries" (LIRs).
Should I become a member?
YES: If your organisation needs IPv6 address space and AS Numbers, and/or makes assignments to End Users or customers. RIPE NCC members may also be eligible to receive a one time allocation of a /22 of IPv4 address space from the last /8 of IPv4 address space for their LIR account. See the online application form for more information.
NO: If you need a small amount of IPv6 addresses and don't make assignments to End Users or customers. See how to request Independent Resources for information on how to get IPv6 addresses without becoming a member.
