ARIN Whois Update

  • From: Kim Hubbard
  • Date: Fri Mar 06 16:34:36 1998

Effective Sunday, March 8, 1998 all ARIN Point of Contact (POC) handles
will have a -ARIN extension.  This is being done to differentiate between
the various registry handles.
All POC handles currently listed in the ARIN database will have the
-ARIN extension added to them and newly created ARIN handles will
include -ARIN.
Searching for POC handles in ARIN's Whois requires the addition of the
-ARIN extension to the handle, e.g., JS1-ARIN.  Handle queries that do 
not use the -ARIN extention will result in a "no matches found".
When submitting templates to ARIN please include the -ARIN extension
when listing a pre-existing POC handle.
