Announcing Your IP Networks at Rad Web Hosting

You may opt for IP Announcement by Rad Web Hosting (AS398646 - SecureNet) for use with your Dedicated Servers or Server Colocation services.

Procedure for Announcing IP Networks

Before making any arrangements, either ensure you have ordered a service and selected "IP Announcement" from the IP Addresses configurable option of the order form, or alternatively, contact us via support ticket, and explicitly provide the network details.

We can provide you with "hands-on" guidance through the IP announcement process if you are unfamiliar or would prefer it. As prerequisite to IP announcement, we require at least a dedicated server or a server colocation service be actively associated with any announced IP space in your account. We do not announce IPs if the largest service is VPS. cloud or web hosing (strangely, we have had this requested before). 

After the initial process of ordering a service with IP announcement from the order form or creating the ticket request, you must submit a completed Letter of Authorization (LOA).

To make the process easier, we have included a sample template below. Please replace the default data with the appropriate values (with relation to . This document is required by the RiRs before the announcement can begin. 

Additionally, you should have a set of POC (Point of Contact) records that will be associated with the announced IP space. If you do not have one prepared, you can generate them online from an ARIN account. Visit this link to create a new ARIN account. 

Instructions for creating and managing POCs can be found on ARIN's website: Point of Contact (POC) Records & Organization Identifiers (Org IDs)

An LOA is a formal document which should be on company letterhead and contain a wet signature. The Letter of Authorization must be a PDF.

After approval, we will introduce your IP space to our network, and assign them to your account for use with your services. This process may take several days, depending on factors outside of our control. You will be notified once the IPs are active for use on the network.

For any questions or concerns regarding this process, please open a Support Ticket.
