As a Marketplace client, you can change/update subnets at IPXO. Most subnets can be updated using the same procedures, regardless of whether they are allocated by AFRINIC, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC or RIPE NCC. If there are any exceptions for what can and cannot be changed, our team can provide you with more information individually.

Regional Internet Registries include AFRINIC, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC and RIPE NCC.

Geolocation

IPXO Marketplace clients can use subnets in many different geolocations, and they can also request to have the geolocation updated according to their needs. We send geolocation update requests to MaxMind, IP2Location, DB-IP and IPinfo databases. 

Use our IP geolocation guide to learn more about IP geolocation and IPXO Geofeed Guide to learn how to update your subnet's geolocation.

Subnet's Whois

The subnet's Whois information changes are possible for the following data:  

  • Admin-c/Tech-c (depending on RIR) 
  • Country
  • Desc/Remarks (depending on RIR) 
  • Geolocation (depending on RIR) 
  • Netname/Name, ORG

Note: Depending on the Regional Internet Registry, changes of additional fields may be possible too. 

Here's an example of Whois information provided by AFRINIC. To demonstrate an example, we use the subnet 154.16.99.0/24.

Here's an example of Whois information provided by APNIC. To demonstrate an example, we use the subnet 103.141.68.0/24.

Here's an example of Whois/RDAP information provided by ARIN. To demonstrate an example, we use the subnet 64.112.97.0/24.

Here's an example of Whois information provided by LACNIC. To demonstrate an example, we use the subnet 191.96.44.0/23.

Here's an example of Whois information provided by RIPE NCC. To demonstrate an example, we use the subnet 2.59.180.0/24.

Note: Whether or not changes are possible also depend on the subnet's status/nettype. For example, it is not possible to change the netname and org attributes of a RIPE NCC subnet that has the Allocated PA status. Also note that we will not be able to change the Abuse-c attribute to your values as the abuse contact is our internal Abuse Prevention team. In the event of abuse, our team will provide you with all abuse-related details needed to take action.

ROA and Route Object

If you want to have ROA, Whois route object or RADB route object created, you have to assign the subnet to a specific ASN. Follow the instructions below to learn how to do it.

How to assign a subnet to a specific ASN

Step 1: Access the My Leased IPs menu

Log in to the IPXO Portal and go to Lease -> My Leased IPs.

How to access My Leased IPs in the IPXO Portal

Step 2: Click Assign

Identify the subnet you want to assign and click the Assign button on the right.

Step 3: Provide assignment information

  1. Enter the Company name (e.g., IPXO).
  2. Add the ASN (autonomous system number) of the AS Organization (e.g., 834) and choose Max Lenght.
  3. Check the boxes if you want to create ROA, Whois route object, Inetnum and/or RADB route object.
  4. Click Confirm once you fill out the form. 

Note: You can add as many ASNs as you want. However, remember that you have to pay $9 per ASN.

Once the assignment is complete, you will receive the LoA (Letter of Authorization) document. You can find and download it from Lease -> My Leased IPs -> LoA.
