You have probably heard of IPv4 exhaustion. Unfortunately, the problem is very real and is worsening with time. Being common users of the internet, businesses or more, directly or indirectly it’s going to have an effect on all.
Although IPv6 is available, adaption has remained slow. In the current world, IPv4 continues to dominate as the most widely used and preferred internet protocol. IPv4 is the ‘standard’ protocol. Moving to the new technology would require a change in the way networks are designed. Easier said than done, there are a number of other complexities involved that need to be addressed before any widespread migration takes place.
IPv4 addresses are 32 bits long. They are divided into four octets of 8 bots each. Simple calculations reveal that there are total of 4.3 billion addresses available. This number was more than sufficient to fulfill the needs of all internet users back when this technology was developed.
However, with the growing number of users, decreasing computer prices and cross device internet usage flexibility, the figure of 4.3 billion addresses is no longer enough.
As experts, this problem has also exacerbated due to a lack of reliable platforms where buyers can get access to clean and usable IPv4 address blocks.
We have provided clients a reliable platform for safe exchanges. However, if you are planning to buy IPv4 address blocks, here are a few things you need to consider:
Identify your needs. How many IPv4 address blocks do you require? Come up with an estimate and find potential sellers who have inventory equal to or larger than that. Buying in bulk from the same seller can help in negotiation and in turn get you discounts. So, be on the lookout for potential opportunities.
Demand is high, but the supply is low. This means prices will be higher than normal. Given the market conditions, this shouldn’t bother you that much. However, it is advised that you arrange financials beforehand. You don’t want to strike a deal just to lose it to other buyers ready to pay instantly.
Is your use temporary or permanent? If it’s the former, you should consider the option of leasing IPv4 address blocks. IPv4 Mall serves as a complete hub for buyers, sellers and leasers, so finding potential ones should not be a problem.
