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.
