To buy IPv4 addresses for your IT business is similar to buying a house. You contact a broker and work with them on the required IPv4 addresses. Based on the listings they have at the moment, they'll provide your with a quote and help you buy IPv4 addresses.
Similar to the housing market, buying IPv4 addresses means you're dealing with a sellers market. Commonly several parties are looking to purchase the same resource, resulting in scarcity and consequently driving up prices. So it's important that you're well informed on your requirements and have an indication of (expected) required budget to buy IPv4 addresses. In addition, you should be able to decide quickly.
The broker will provide you with a quote on the prefix you're looking for, including details on the size of the prefix, which region ( like RIPE NCC, ARIN or APNIC region) the prefix is currently in and what the total pricing will be. If the buying party decides to sign the quote, they're introduced to the seller and agreements are made on the actual sales and escrow. Both the seller and buyer then communicate directly and transparently on prefix ownership, payment, signing and more.
Once the paperwork is all signed by all parties, invoices are sent and the payment is transferred to the escrow account. Once payment is received, the actual transfer is started with the RIR of the seller, and typically a transfer of IPv4 addresses is then completed within a couple of days up to a week.
After the transfer is completed by the RIR, the payments are done from the escrow to the seller and broker and the transaction is formally completed. To buy IPv4 addresses is thus a rather complex process requiring sufficient knowledge of the procedures and matters involved. Your broker will navigate the process and help you buy IPv4 addresses you need.
The costs of IPv4 addresses varies per prefix sold. If the seller wants to quickly sell the prefix, it's possible that a prefix is put into the market below market price. However, typically sellers take their time to get the asking price that they're looking for. The current IPv4 addresses market is a sellers market, meaning that whenever sellers don't get their preferred offer today, there's enough demand tomorrow.
The cost of IPv4 addresses today (Jan 2022) can range between 50 US$ and 60 US$ per address. Over the course of the coming months, prices are expected to rise due to the ever-increasing demand.
IPv4 addresses are still available on the after-market (so to be purchased) via a transfer from company A to company B. The supply of IPv4 space on the market is getting tougher these days given the rising scarcity. So if you have plans and want to budget for this or next year, make sure that you reserve enough to last your expected need. It's expected for IPv4 addresses prices to rise so plan ahead and make sure to get the space you need in time.
It's still possible to buy IPv4 address space and transfer ownership from one party to another. The minimal size of IP space sold is a /24, being 256 addresses. This is due to the routing across the internet. Smaller prefixes are likely to be filtered out. If you require just a couple of IPv4 addresses, it's easier to ask your upstream provider to provide a small subnet.
Our approach to obtaining IPv4 addresses for our clients is roughly the same, however, our scope differs. Express your objectives and we aim to realize them within a set period of time. Moreover, expect nothing but honest advice from our specialists – we'll make sure your interests are served to the best of our abilities. Buy IPv4 addresses through Prefix Broker and let us take care of the obligatory administrative matters. In turn, you can focus on strengthening your business based on the IPv4 addresses you just purchased.
