IP Justification Form

Tier.Net Technologies LLC
IP Address Justification Form v1.1

• Overview
The completion of this form is required when requesting additional IP addresses greater than:
• The initial /29 (5 usable) allocated to your dedicated server
• The initial /32 (1 usable) allocated to your VPS or Cloud service

Tier.Net Technologies LLC strictly observes the policies of American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), Réseaux IP
Européens (RIPE) or other Regional Internet Registrys (RIR). We require all customers to provide written justification for
any additional IP allocations requested beyond the initial assignment. This justification is needed in order to demonstrate
to ARIN or RIPE that IP allocations assigned to Tier.Net are being used efficiently.

• Justification Policy
Tier.Net will ONLY allocate IPs in cases where name-based hosting is not possible because of technological restrictions not
yet overcome (e.g. SSL). IPs may not be used for any purpose that violates Tier.Net’s acceptable use policy (AUP) or terms
of service (TOS). If your additional IP request can be justified, we will assign the allocation to you. In order to qualify,
the following information must be provided:

• Number of IPs needed
• If you have a previous allocation for this service, you must demonstrate 80% utilization, provide the following
information:
o Existing server name
o Main server IP address
o Total number of IPs assigned to the server
o Total number of IPs actively used by a domain(s)
o Total number of IPs not actively used by a domain(s)
o List of currently assigned IP addresses, include how each one is utilized and its domain name
• Describe the purpose of EACH IP address requested
• Verifiable domain for EACH IP address requested

Each request is thoroughly reviewed before this order will be approved. If this request is for more than a /27 (32 IP
addresses), it may take up to 24 hours to complete this request.
