APNIC Whois Database


As part of the approved community policy, prop-125: Validation of “abuse-mailbox” and other IRT emails, APNIC will now be publishing an’abuse-c’ attribute for resource records in the APNIC Whois Database.

The ‘abuse-c’ attribute will reference a ‘role’ object, which will contain the same contact information currently visible in the Member’s IRT object. Any changes to the abuse-c information will need to be done in the IRT object as the abuse-c attribute is generated automatically from the IRT object.

For more information about this change, please see the Maintainer and IRT FAQ on the APNIC website:

We apologize for the loss of facilities and any inconvenience caused. Should you require assistance in dealing with any problems arising from this outage, please contact the APNIC Helpdesk.
