One of the outcomes of the IPv4 runout is that service providers are now charging for IPv4 addresses, where they previously did not. As a result, small businesses are exposed to the possibility that they will pay for IPv4 use at escalating prices going forward.
More and more small businesses are coming to IPv4 Market Group to request small blocks - /21s, /22s, /23s, and /24s. Getting ARIN pre-approval and then purchasing its own IPv4 block, protects a business from future IPv4 price increases and the possibility of not receiving future service from your current provider. Owning your own ASN and IPv4 block is a risk-alleviating strategy that many businesses should consider.
In response to this IPv4 need, IPv4 Market Group has created an online small block purchase mechanism. A buyer needs only to go to our Buy Page to see the blocks and prices that are available.
After providing the ARIN pre-approval number, the IPv4 buyer is sent online terms and conditions of purchase. With the terms, you can review a blacklist report that examines the cleanliness of the block. Assistance in navigating the ARIN pre-approval process is available.
After agreeing to the Terms and Conditions, the buyer pays online using a credit card, PayPal, or escrow.com. Then, the ARIN transfer is submitted. As the buyer, you will also pay the ARIN transfer fee which, at the time of writing, is $500 USD.
The new system is fast (at least as fast as ARIN allows it to be), allows you to choose from three convenient payment mechanisms, and gives a blacklist report to reduce the risk of undesirable blacklisting.
Reduce your IPv4 risk and buy small IPv4 blocks online today.
