LIR status

Now many companies consider becomeштп a LIR themselves. RIPE assigns the last /8 for LIRs, but not more than /22 to one company. One time payment to RIPE NCC is 2,000 euros , plus 1,400 euros annually, which are shares on quarter payments (350 euros).So your first payment will be 2350 euros.

You can read about Charging Scheme here http://www.ripe.net/ripe/docs/ripe-591.

Unfortunately this pleasure is not cheap. However, it allows you to receive /22 (1024 addresses) PA network, a large block of IPv6 addresses (from /to 32 up to /29) and the autonomous system (if necessary) with the help of experienced hostmaster (a person who sends a request).

If you already have blocks of addresses, the LIR status will allow you to reduce the cost of annual pay for the support of these objects. Status also implies the ability to buy PA blocks officially. In the LIR portal you will be able to view the PA addresses for sale.

Also being LIR means that you have a nice opportunity to participate in various kinds of activities that are often held by RIPE. You will receive in your email all materials for meetings, discussions.

We can get the LIR status for you and guarantee the assignment of /22 (1024 addresses) PA block, IPv6 block of addresses (from /29 upto /29) and AS (if necessary).

The cost of our services is 1000 euros. If you need assistance and help in the creation of a legal entity, it is discussed separately.
