Becoming a Member of the RIPE NCC

From this page, you can begin the process of becoming a RIPE NCC member. Legacy Internet resource holders should also follow the process outlined on this page to join the RIPE NCC or sign a non-member contract with the RIPE NCC. 

NOTEIf you need a small amount of IPv6 address space that you don’t want to assign to customers, you don’t need to become a member – you can contact a RIPE NCC member and request it directly. Find out how to get independent resources.

Over 14,000 organisations make up the RIPE NCC membership, and they form the backbone of the Internet in our service region. As well as receiving Internet number resources, there is a wide range of RIPE NCC services available to members, from training courses to Internet analysis tools.
