- As long as the broker know the IP transfer process, they will be able to make it more efficient
A broker will help you save time, because you won’t have to do the searching for your match.
Yes. Companies that opt to lease their unused IPv4 address space can do so freely to anyone. There are no known legal restrictions in any economy, region or continent that prohibit a company wishing to lease/sell/buy out it’s blocks from doing so.
We check to make sure the IPs were not used for anything depraved or corrupt.

We negotiate a Brokerage Agreement, and after your payment is secured, we begin preparing address space transfer documents.
- Ownership Transfer
We prepare a formal agreement between a buyer and a seller as well as all the additional papers and send them to RIPE NCC on your behalf.

AfriNIC is a Regional Internet Registry (RIR), a non-profit organization engaged in the registration and administration of IP addresses. It provides assistance to its members within its geographical area which covers the African continent and Indian Ocean.
APNIC is the RIR that serves the Asia Pacific region. It stands for Asia Pacific Network Information Centre.
ARIN is a RIR, a not-for-profit organization that manages the allocation of IP addresses for or Canada, the US, and many North Atlantic and Caribbean
CIDR stands for ClasslessInter-Domain R It is a technique that allows a more effective and convenient allocation of addresses. The original class-based method was wasteful so that CIDR was implemented to deliver Internet address space more conveniently. This in turn reduces the number of entries in IP routing tables, enabling faster, more efficient routing
IPv4 is the fourth version of the IP protocol. At the moment the IPv4 is what the majority of systems support. Whenever a device connects to the internet it is assigned a unique, numerical IP addresses. It uses 32-bit addresses, formatted as "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx." Each section may contain a number from 0 to 255. That means it can support 2^32 IP addresses in total.
An IP address is a unique address that recognizes a device on the Internet. It authorizes a system to be recognized by other systems connected via the Internet protocol. There are two elementary types of IP address formats used today — IPv4 and IPv6.
IP addresses are allocated to networks in various sized “blocks”. The number of IP addresses that are incorporated in a block is written after an oblique (/). For instance, if an Internet Service Provider receives 64 IPv4 addresses, it is assigned a “/26”, but if it is assigned a “/16 – they receive around 64000 IPv4 addresses. The more addresses incorporated in that “block”, the lower the number after the oblique (/).
An asset purchase agreement (APA) is a reliable protocol that concludes all terms and conditions related to the acquisition and sale.As well as a description of the assets and the purchase price, the agreement may also include applicable representations, assurances and covenants.
The IPv4 broker acts as a scout between the IPv4 sellers and buyers in order to unwind the relatively sophisticated procedure of transferring address blocks. One of his missions is to persuade associations and companies, that have large IPv4 allocations, to view them as a beneficial capital.
LACNIC is “The Latin American and Caribbean Internet Address Registry”. It is the enterprise that represents the interests of the Latin American and Caribbean Internet community. Its main purpose is to provide registry services of IP Addresses in order to support and favor communication through information networks.
In order to boost the Internet’s development, legacy internet address space was allocated by the central Internet Registry (IR) prior to the existence of the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). Any company that started a dial up service, or any Internet Service Provider, was given large address blocks, so that it was extremely easy to obtain a block of 65000+ of IPv4 addresses. These blocks represented just a small amount of the IPv4 address space.
RIPE is one of the five Regional Internet Registry (RIR) organizations that supports the Internet through technical coordination. It is in charge for the administration and registration of IP addresses in Europe, mandatory to preserve and expand the Internet progress.
Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) are not-for-profit organizations that supervise and register Internet Protocol (IP) address space within a limited region. Nowadays, the world is divided into 5 RIRs: AFRINIC, ARIN, APNIC, LACNIC and RIPE.
