IPv4 address market is huge and locating IPv4 addresses for a business can be painstakingly difficult, this is where a broker acts like Google Maps to locate allocated but unused IP blocks. This entire process performed by the broker at the backend is complicated, this is why brokers are important. Hence, a broker makes sure that the IPv4 Marketplace has a steady supply of IPs by connecting buyers and sellers, thus reducing the overall cost of the IPs.

The following are the 4 things one must know about the IPv4 address market:

  1. It is legitimate to sell your surplus IPv4 addresses
  2. Lack of regulatory body or marketplace where buyers and sellers can buy or sell IPs
  3. Control of few buyers over the IPv4 address market
  4. Convert your surplus IPv4 IPs into revenue by selling

You can find and buy unused IPv4 addresses here on IPv4.deals, we liaison between you and the seller at low costs.

IPv4 address space need to be bought through a trusted broker and facilitator. IPv4s when bought through IPv4.deals provides you with a transparent, reliable and suitable long-term IP’s solution.

IPv6 is a better version than IPv4, hence one must look at the future benefits of converting to IPv6 from IPv4. For IPv4 and IPv6 costing, read more on our Fees and Charges page.

IPv4.deals provides ultimate solutions when you want to make a switch from IPv4 to IPv6, without compromising your current network. Call us now to have an agile switch solution depending on your requirement.

In 2017, MIT’s (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) network wing, MITnet announced that it will upgrade to IPv6 and unify its existing in-use IPv4 network with the next-generation IPv6. It did so by selling its surplus 8 million IPv4 IP addresses to Amazon in 2018. This is an ideal example of how MIT has funded its upgrade to IPv6 by selling its excess IPv4 addresses. In the same way businesses can generate revenue from IPv4 address sale and upgrade to IPv6.

IPv4.deals can complete this whole process of IPv6 upgrade and also sale of your excess IPv4 addresses seamlessly. Contact us now to enquire more about generating revenue from IPv4.

Yes, Selling of IPV4 number blocks is a legal practice. In fact the courts have approved the practice for the sale of IPv4 number blocks as well as its transfers in association with bankruptcies, mergers, acquisitions and also the business unit restructuring activities. There are no known international, State or localized jurisdiction statutes that prohibits the sell or purchase of IPv4 number blocks.

For a primary set of the total number of IPv4 assets, there are contractual restrictions which constrain the transfer of those number blocks. In those cases the owner’s rights to the IPv4 number blocks are limited to the service contract defined right-of-use, and the number block holder is bound to abide by with all applicable transfer policies.

The IPv4 address pool is diminishing, however big organisations, Internet Service Providers still have unused IP blocks that are available to sell. Read more

IPv6 is the newer version of Internet Protocol, version 6. It was developed by Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to counter the IPv4 address exhaustion. IPv6 is an improved version of IPv4, that simplifies the address size to 128 bits, rather than 32 bits in IPv4. IPv6 has unlimited addresses compared to IPv4 which was limited to 4.3 billion addresses only.

IPv6 has many benefits, the most important benefits are:

  1. Structured and systematic routing and processing
  2. Network layout is simple
  3. Controlled data flow
  4. Additional support features which were missing in IPv4
  5. IPs are secure, providing privacy, validity and data authenticity

IPv6 vs IPv4 is a hot topic everywhere and here is a short differentiation:

Difference IPv4 IPv6
Version 4 6
Address size 32-bit 128-bit
Example 103.237.113.163 2001:db8:a0b:12f0::1
IPs allowed 4 million addresses Unlimited addresses

Some of the most important factors affecting IPV4 blocks pricing is not just limited to one. In case of IPs, there is no regulator like SEBI for example in case of stocks and a marketplace like the Bombay Stock Exchange where stocks are bought and sold. Hence, it is really difficult to know who decides the pricing, the seller or the broker? Raed more

Defiantly, in fact the judicatures themselves have recognized the sell & purchase of IPv4 number blocks, as well as the transfers of IPv4 block assets in association with bankruptcies, acquisitions, and business unit restructuring activities. There are no such international or State, local jurisdiction statutes that prohibits the sell or purchase of the IPv4 number blocks.

For a primary set of the total number of IPv4 blocks, the owners’ rights for the number blocks are restricted to a right-of-use defined contract. In these type of cases, there might be contractual restrictions which restrain certain types of IPv4 number blocks from being transferred to the recipient of a number block transfer.
