My ISP is about to close down. I have a new ISP and they need to add a route object in the Database but cannot do this. Can you add the route object for us?

The data in the RIPE Database is owned by the people who enter it and not by the RIPE NCC.

The RIPE NCC is not permitted to change user data.

There is a security mechanism called RPSS controlling the creation of route objects. RPSS is designed to stop the creation of route objects (amongst other things) without the agreement of the the person controlling the AS Number and the person controlling the IP addresses.

If the IP addresses and AS number are from different ISPs those ISPs will need to work together to create a route object for you.
