What are the entries in RIPE database and why it is important to maintain them?

RIPE database is a publicly accessible register available on http://whois.ripe.net where IP addresses and autonomous system numbers (ASn) are registered and assigned to particular organization or individual.

Regarding independent IP addresses all necessary data is kept and updated for you. However, if you want to fully maintain the data in RIPE database yourself, it is possible via a login account that we provide to you.
