IPv4 lease: the new solution to IPv4 address exhaustion

A shortage of IPv4 addresses has caused a run on the fourth version Internet Protocol 

addresses. After the RIPE NCC in 2019 declared to have run out of IPv4 addresses to allocate, a transfer market for these addresses quickly emerged. But within this competitive and expensive environment, young businesses are continuously missing out. 


The limited funds of many young businesses do not allow the purchase of IPv4 addresses and prevent them from getting started. However, with the opportunity to lease IPv4 addresses, these businesses are able to make use of this scarce asset.


The alternative to buying 


The depletion of IPv4 addresses has come to an all-time high at the end of November 2019 when the RIPE NCC announced its last IPv4 addresses were allocated. They had now run out of IPv4 addresses. From this point onwards, a trade in IPv4 addresses emerged. 


Specialized brokers jumped at the opportunity to facilitate the safe transaction of IPv4 addresses and a lease construction for surplus addresses. The latter is increasingly popular for organizations wanting a quick and easy solution for a shortage in IP addresses.  


Through IP brokers, Ipv4 lease is facilitated and knows several benefits. The leased IPv4 addresses are usable worldwide within 24 hours after the first payment and a reverse DNS configuration is included.
