How To Add Your Organization’s Point of Contact (POC) In ARIN
Learn how to create and add your organization's POC in ARIN.
Before you upload an ARIN allocated subnet to the IPXO Marketplace, you have to add an abuse point of contact (POC) to your organization’s POC in ARIN.
Follow the instructions below to add a POC to an ARIN inetnum.
If you want to upload ARIN allocated subnets to the IPXO Marketplace, you need to perform the following steps first:
- The network resource of the subnet added to the Marketplace must be reallocated to the organization with OrgID: IL-845.
- The organization that performs the reallocation to IL-845 must have an organization’s abuse POC set up (find instructions below).
- The network resource must be of exact NetRange (exact subnets must exist in Whois, not larger or smaller).
- If it is Direct Assignment or Reassigned, IPXO will not accept the subnet. To change your Direct Assignment to Direct Allocation, please open a new ticket and request ARIN support to change the status.
How to create your organization’s POC in ARIN
To set up the POC in the ARIN subnet inetnum, you must have the point of contact already created, or you must create a new one. Follow the instructions below to create a point of contact.
Step 1: Access the Point of Contact records (POCs) menu
Log in to your ARIN Account Manager and click Dashboard in the menu on the left. In the Account Snapshot menu, click Point of Contact records (POCs).
Step 2: Click Create POC
As you navigate to the Point of Contact Records menu, click Create POC in the POC Actions menu on the right.
Step 3: Create a POC Record
Provide the contact details in the Create a Point of Contact Record form and click Submit.
Note: You have different options when selecting the Contact Type. If this POC is related to a group email (e.g., it belongs to the Administrators group), you must select Role; otherwise, select Person.
If you perform the steps correctly, you will receive a message indicating that a new POC was created.
You can also watch this official video from ARIN explaining how to create a POC.
Note: You need to add an abuse contact for your organization. This contact will be used to validate the ownership of the resource.
