Why Lease IPv4 Addresses?
The Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA) announced that IPv4 addresses officially ran out in 2011. Some organizations started to transition to IPv6, but most just put this initiative off due to resource constraints and the complexity of the switch. Today, most organizations now need to lease IPv4 to keep up with the client demand, since IPv6 still hasn’t become the more dominant protocol globally.
So how does someone lease IPv4 addresses in ARIN, RIPE or APNIC? The concept of leasing IPv4 from a third party aside from your ISP or hosting can be risky if you don’t qualify the supplier that is providing the leased IPv4 addresses. There are several things to consider to avoid major issues down the line.
- Confirm the supplier who owns the IPv4 addresses is a legitimate company
- Ensure the partner you are leasing IPv4 addresses from has a good reputation
- Get proof that the IPv4 addresses are clean and not on a IP blacklists
