What is ARIN?
Posted by Joe Rebis (Import) on 16 September 2006 10:19 PM

ARIN:

American Registry for Internet Numbers ARIN is a non-profit membership organization established for the purpose of the administration and registration of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses in the geographical areas previously managed by Network Solutions, Inc. Those areas include North America, South America, the Caribbean and sub-Saharan Africa. The ARIN database will tell you who is responsible for a particular IP address. Many people use it to try to track down the internet service provider of spammers or fraudulent orders. Note, that ARIN does not control all of the IP address in the world and as such not all IP addresses will be available in an ARIN search. For instance, RIPE is the European & Asian counter-part to ARIN (IP numbers to Europe, the Middle East and parts of Africa and Asia).
