As of Friday, 15 April 2011, all new and existing Members are able to access up to a maximum of /22 from the 103/8 pool. As of Tuesday, 27 May 2014, new and existing Members are also able to access up to a maximum of /22 from the non-103/8 pool while address space is available.

We have already received our maximum /21 of IPv4 addresses from APNIC. How can we get more IPv4 addresses?

There are two options you can consider:

  1. There is an IPv4 transfer feature available in MyAPNIC, which allows the transfer of unused IPv4 addresses between APNIC account holders.
  2. APNIC provides an IPv4 transfers listing service where you can be listed as a ‘pre-approval’ recipient. This allows other organizations that have unused IPv4 addresses to contact you.

Guidelines are provided in the IPv4 Transfers Guide.
