Welcome to IPV4 Exchange International. On this website you can list the IPV4 Blocks you wish to sell or wish to buy. When we find a match between a buyer and seller, IPV4 Exchange International will initiate a new transaction using a third party escrow. We will show active quotes per block size and LIR, based on the most recent transactions. New quotes will be created by the price that initiated the largest number of IP’s traded at the last trade.
IPV4 internet address space is running out rapidly. In the North America and Canada region there are no IPV4 addresses left. Any business requiring more address space will have to resort to buying their IP blocks. In Europe, where RIPE NCC is the regional internet registry, each member is only entitled to a last /22. This translates to 1024 IP addresses. Any company needing more than that will have to buy from fellow members having space left. In 2011 the first IPV4 transaction took place between Nortel and Microsoft at USD 11,25 per IP address for 666.624 IP addresses. Very recently the UK’s DWP sold 150.000 IP’s at approximately GBP 7,- per IP according to a recent BBC article.
The biggest problem that the current IPv4 market has is that there are very few indicators of price. Sellers are holding on to pricing such as created with the sale of 150.000 IP’s by the DWP translating into about € 9,5 per IP. Whilst buyers are clouded by recent transactions by one of the larger Romanian ISPs. They have sold many IP’s at what could be considered below market price. Rumors are that now their stock is depleted. Surprisingly some potential buyers out there think that it is still possible to buy a /23 at € 5,- per IP. It is IPV4 Exchange its mission to take out all this clutter.
