More information about getting your IP Addresses

In the Asia Pacific region, Internet number resources are delegated and registered by the APNIC (Asia Pacific Network Information Centre), a not-for-profit, member-based organization.

To get IP addresses from APNIC:

  • Your organization must be a legal entity registered in the Asia Pacific region or plan to use the IP addresses for your network in the Asia Pacific region
  • You’ll need to provide documentation with your application:
    • Proof of your business legal entity e.g. Certification of business incorporation
    • Any Internet number resources currently held by your organization
    • The intended use for the address space requested e.g. network plans

If your application is approved, you’ll become an APNIC Member.

As a new APNIC Member you can receive from 256 (a /24 in prefix notation) up to a maximum of 512 (/23) IPv4 addresses. You can also receive IPv6 addresses, typically a /48 or a /32 depending on your network size.
