Arin regulations about IP
Posted on 2004-09-14
I need to have several IP from non consecutive ip blocks.
This is for search engine optimization purposes.
My provider says that they have to provide a reason to ARIN why they need ip from non consecutive ip blocks, and that search engine optimization is not an acceptable answer.
Here is their answer:
Due to restrictions levied by ARIN on how we are allowed to assign IP space, we are limited on the number of active IP ranges in which to assign IP addresses from. Additionally, as David discussed earlier, we are not able to use search engine optimization as justification. Therefore, without specific technical justificaiton we will not able to accomidate requests for additional IPs from non-consecutive blocks.
So I need a good technical reason (it's an excuse I know) for needing IP from non consecutive blocks
