RADb Registration process

Table of contents

Why RADb?

You'll need to submit three types of database records to the RADb: one or more Maintainer objects, an AS object, and one or more Route objects.

A Maintainer object will need to be registered before you can register any AS or Route objects.

Maintainer Objects Needed

A single Maintainer object can be used for all your AS objects and Route objects, although some providers prefer to register one Maintainer object per AS managed.


To register an account with RADb, you will need to go to

Below is information that you will need to register. All fields are mandatory unless otherwise indicated.

  • Email address
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Personal NIC Handle (Optional)
  • Organizational NIC Handle (Optional)
  • Organization Name
  • Country
  • Primary AS number
  • Organization address
  • Technical Contact
  • Administrator Contact

After the registration is complete, you will receive a confirmation email in the email address that was provided.

This will contain information required to access your new account.

Important Note

It is not possible to bypass the registration embargo process

After you have finished registering, you will have full access to your account with the exception of adding new objects.

In order to add new objects to the account, you will need to pay your invoice.

It is recommended that you make your first payment by Credit Card since Check, ACH and Wire Transfers will take additional time to process.

Payment must be applied to the account in order to unlock this feature.

Checks, ACH and Wire Transfers can take 2-6 weeks to be processed and applied to the account.

This process is for security purposes.
