With our vision of ‘a global, open, stable, and secure Internet’, APNIC performs a range of activities and essential services as a Regional Internet Registry and supports Internet development in the Asia Pacific region.
A primary function of APNIC is to distribute and register Internet number resources (IP addresses and AS numbers), including recording resource transfers.
APNIC uses the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) framework to help make Internet routing more secure. RPKI uses cryptographic certificates to prove the association between specific Internet number resources and the holders of those resources.
APNIC registers and publishes Reverse DNS (Domain Name System) delegations for all IP address blocks it distributes. Reverse DNS is the process of using the DNS to translate an IP address to its corresponding domain name.
The APNIC Academy offers face-to-face training workshops and tutorials, self-paced learning and live webinars throughout the year, catering to all levels of expertise. It also provides a technical assistance service.
APNIC conferences are held in the Asia Pacific twice a year to support community policy development, information exchange, and regional Internet community growth.
The APNIC Blog and Podcast are a valuable resources to keep Members and the community informed on the latest news, opinions, and research from APNIC and the wider Internet community.
APNIC conducts ongoing research and measurements on IPv4 exhaustion, IPv6 deployment, RPKI, DNSSEC and related topics under APNIC Labs.
APNIC delivers its online public services via systems that aim to be reliable, secure, and high-performance.
