If you want your subnet to be verified in Heficed's IP Address Market, it is required to prepare your IP range for it. You can find all the required verification steps below:
Note: some of the changes described below needs the subnet to be placed in IP Address Market for validation, thus it is for the best to start this process by registering at Heficed Terminal, adding the IPs to the market, and doing the changes described below as the validation proceeds.
STEP 1. Abuse contact (abuse-c) in WHOIS has to visible as firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can learn how to set abuse contact in each RIR:
STEP 2. IP range has to be delegated to our nameservers:
ns8.heficed.com and ns9.heficed.com
(this step requires the range to be placed in IP Address Market before doing the changes).
More information on the procedure can be found below:
STEP 3. Make sure that your subnet is not listed in any of the abuse blacklists. Heficed IP Address Market will only accept clean IP ranges.
If your subnet is blacklisted, proceed to remove it from the list before applying it to the Market.
There are multiple websites where you can inspect your IP ranges and here are a few examples:
When using LOA as your verification option, make sure to include that you allow your subnet/prefix to be announced under our ASN (AS61317) by our company (Digital Energy Technologies Limited) in your Letter of Authorization.
If you choose to use ROA and want your subnet to have network redundancy with load balancing in Chicago or Lagos locations, LOA will also be required. The reason for this is that some Internet Service Providers require LOA to accept IP ranges.
