Managed LIR

Here at LIR SERVICES, we understand that navigating the RIPE landscape can be quite an intimidating and time-consuming task. As an LIR, you are expected to keep up with ever-changing RIPE policies and procedures.

Our Managed LIR service is designed to give your organisation all the benefits of RIPE membership, and at the same time, take away all the technical and administrative worries associated with it.

We have created the Managed LIR service specifically for organisations who want to become new LIRs. However, we are also happy to take on board the existing LIRs who prefer to delegate the LIR administrations to experts.
