Non-LIR’s can still own their own IPv4 space by employing the assistance of an LIR Sponsorship from an approved RIPE organization. A Sponsoring LIR is simply the legal connection between your entity and the RIPE NCC, allowing your entity access to RIPE NCC services without the headache of large annual fees and discordance caused by ever-changing registry policies. Requested IPv4 address sources are allocated directly to the end-user’s organization, allowing them full control over the use of the IPv4 subnet. Controlling your own IPv4 subnets allows you to announce them in BGP from anywhere and allows for very easy reverse DNS management as well.
As your sponsoring LIR, Brander Group consistently stays up to date with developing RIPE policies so that you don’t have to! We can also help you easily purchase IPv4 subnets from a range of different regions and sizes. We ensure that our end-users are always in line with the current RIPE policy thus eliminating the risk of your RIPE account falling into non-compliance due to policy changes. We also take on the responsibility of housekeeping by working together with our end-users:
- Keep all RIPE data up to date and accurate
- Ensure the correct registration of any independent resources,
- Handle abuse-related matters
- Perform due diligence ahead of any requests sent to the RIPE NCC
- Contact the RIPE NCC on behalf of our end-user
