We are located in Germany and are a small registered Local Internet Registry (LIR) of the RIPE NCC (Regional Internet Registry) which is located in The Netherlands, Amsterdam. Whereas IP space is routable world-wide, we are primarily responsible for customers of Europe, the Middle East and parts of Central Asia.
More information about that you find on this page.
Since we are an autoritative registry for parts of the public internet address space, but not an Internet Service Provider, we do not affect or interfere with any network traffic. Thus, in case you notice illegitime or even illegal behaviour which is associated with specific Internet Protocol Numbers (IPv4 or IPv6 addresses) registered with us, you need to contact the responsible Hosting Provider first. This information can be found out by looking into the database of the RIPE NCC. Nonetheless, especially in case you are a law enforcement agency and you are aware of serious offenses against international law, we ask you to contact us, since we may have to apply sanctions at the contractual level in such cases.
