How can I get IP addresses?

If your organisation meets our criteria, you can apply for membership and receive a block of addresses. The general criteria are:

  • Your organisation has a legally established office in the RIPE NCC service region
  • Your organisation will need its own routable block and a large amount of addresses

If your organisation does not meet our criteria, you should approach an upstream provider, also known as a Local Internet Registry (LIR) or Internet Service Provider (ISP).
