Welcome to AFRINIC's New Membership Registration Portal.
Sign up for AFRINIC membership and request your first IP resources.
This portal enables organisations to request AFRINIC membership and IP resources.
The first section of this portal refers to your organisation's' details and can be filled in by an administrative contact at your organisation. The second section is related to technical information and should be filled by someone with technical understanding of IP resources. This will ensure that accurate information about your IP resource planning is submitted to AFRINIC. This will mean that we can evaluate your request more quickly.
If you have any questions about the portal, the membership registration process or IP resources, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
General Organisation information: this may be filled by an administrative person. You will need to have the following information ready: Name, Industry, General/Billing address, Email, Phone numbers, the CEO/Managing Director's contact details and at least two registered contact persons.
IPv4 Section: Someone with technical knowledge will need to complete a detailed addressing plan. To ensure that your addressing plan is complete, please refer to the IPv4 addressing plan section on the AFRINIC website.
ASN Requests: If you are currently multi-homed, please provide details and the ASNs of at least two peers. If you are not currently multi-homed, we will need to know the date by which you will be multi homed as well as the ASNs of at least two of the peers with whom you will multi-home in the future.

Please specify how will you be using the requested IP resources.
Based on your selection, you will need to indicate additional information on the exact use of the IP addresses in the next section.
In this section, you will need to provide detailed information on how you will be using the requested IPv4 address space. Based on the information collected on the previous page, you will be presented with a list of services that you might be running on your network. If any is missing, please add it using the "Add" button.
For each of the service that will require IP addresses, please input the total number of IP addresses that you are requesting under the column "Total". We do need how much you will use within the next "3 months" and up to "12 months". In addition, the location where these addresses will be used per service is required as well under the "Location" column.
Please ensure to provide as much information possible to help the Hostmasters understand your needs and speed up the evaluation of your resource request.
Resource Members are generally Local Internet Registry (LIR) and End-Users (EU).
If you are an LIR, you may receive a minimum /32 block as per the IPv6 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy.
If you are an End-user, you may receive a minimum /48 block as per the IPv6 Provider Independent (PI) Assignment for End-Sites.
In order to qualify for an AS number (ASN), the requesting organisation must fulfill the following requirements:
All requests for ASNs under these criteria will be evaluated using the guidelines described in RFC1930 "Guidelines for the creation, selection and registration of an Autonomous System (AS)".
You will also need to specify whether you are currently multihomed or not:
We encourage you to upload all requested files since these are required for the smooth evaluation of your request. Certain documents are mandatory and these must be provided to us. Documents that are not mandatory may help us to evaluate your request quicker if you provide them alongside the mandatory documents. Please be advised that the evaluation may take longer than usual if we do not receive all relevant documents.
