IP Addresses are purchased in blocks by companies with a hell of a lot of money and more importantly, infrastructure. When you get one, unless you are going direct to your RIR (Regional Internet Registry), you are only renting the IP.

buy ip

Even if you then owned an IP by going direct to your RIR (which can be very expensive just to register... See ARIN, RIPE), I highly doubt any VPS provider will add a route to your IP as it will require a significant change to their own infrastructure.

What you are asking for is hard and expensive. For just two VPS from a provider - I highly doubt you will find anyone willing due to complexity... But if someone does want to go down this route, it isn't impossible.

To understand routing across the internet, you need to know that there is more than IP routing alone. BGP is a routing protocol used by providers in order for them to say "My ips are here". To participate in BGP, you need an AS number, and to get an AS number and IPs, you need to register with a RIR (as explained above).

So, you would have IP transit at multiple locations and you would then publish BGP routes from one, and if connectivity to one site fails, you publish the route to the other location and ips are routed there.

Assuming you are somewhere in the geographic area covered by ARIN, this tells you what you need to do. Generally you need to be an ISP of some sort. You probably want to apply for an AS number as well since if you are an ISP you need it for your BGP routing.

You can buy blocks of numbers from Addrex they really know their stuff. The RIRs are leasing numbers now. If you get IPs from your ISP you are renting. If you are on a hosting service you are not going to be able to purchase numbers that can port or take with you. The RIRs are pretty much out of space so the secondary market is your best bet. Companies like ARIN still require needs assessment and are designed for ISPs more than small companies or application providers.

Now that is NOT possible. Different ISPs, providers, can provide different IP blocks.What you need, is a domain address. That you can point to your VPS's IP all the time, no matter how many times you change your provider.

Just like @William Hilsum and @ultrasawblade, you must spent a considerable amount of money and effort to own and operate and IP address range. You will become a quite decent ISP if you actually have such infrastructure.

However, you don't actually need to own an IP address to achieve what you want. All you need is the right to use a fixed IP address. You might be able to get one from an ISP, cloud service or co-location provider and ask them "route" it to your actual IP through VPN or address translation.

I have a possible solution. Just set up a cron job/bash script to constantly take note of your servers current public IP address. If it changes, make the script change your IP on the DNS Server (which you should also be hosting if you're doing this). This way, you don't actually need a static IP address.

IPv4 Market Group places sellers in a queue and approaches them with offers made by potential buyers. In order to trade IPv4 address blocks, individual buyers and sellers must agree on the price and the currency. (i.e. USD, EUR, GBP, etc.)

You will then be in a position to route and use the IPv4 addresses. As you can see, the technical aspects of purchasing IPv4 addresses is incredibly detailed and involved, so utilizing the services of a professional broker is recommended.

Individuals and companies interested in buying IPv4 addresses are invited to speak with us. Your information will only be used to facilitate a confidential discussion and you are under no obligation to make a purchase. Reach out to us via our contact form or email IPv4 Market Group President, Sandra Brown, directly at and we will be in contact with further information. You may also give us a call at 716-348-6768 to learn more information about purchasing IPv4 blocks.

Hilco Streambank did a professional job of getting us more money than we expected per address, and they did it quickly and professionally. Their staff is courteous and knowledgeable, and the entire process worked well.

The term IPv4 address exhaustion defines the depletion of the available pool of IPv4 addresses. The fourth version of the Internet Protocol provides 4,294,967,296 unique addresses that no longer satisfy the growing demand. This is because the number of internet users and online devices has grown exponentially since the introduction of IPv4 in 1981.

However, due to its pricey implementation and hardware limitations, global IPv6 adoption is slow. As a result, organizations and businesses must rely on IPv4 addresses, which have become a scarce commodity. This has paved the way for secondary markets, in which internet numbers are leased or bought.

The scarcity of IPv4 addresses influenced the rise of the IPv4 address transfer market. In this secondary market, organizations can transfer their unused resources to other institutions or businesses that need them.

In contrast, leasing is a simpler process that may take only a few days. For example, on the IPXO Marketplace, verified IP lessees can lease within 5 minutes and bring the resources to any infrastructure within 24 hours. To sum up, a company that needs resources quickly, can benefit from leasing IPv4 blocks instead of buying.

We must not forget another great advantage that leasing offers. Because you do not need to invest considerable funds upfront, you can use the additional savings for other essential investments. For example, your funds could go towards other areas of business growth.

However, when you purchase a lot of IPs, you need to take into account the resources required to manage a large inventory of IPv4 blocks. If managing IPs becomes too time-consuming and costly, buying IPv4 may be a long-term commitment that simply does not pay off.

IP sellers may not apply all security measures to protect buyers from such IP issues as IP blocklisting. Because not every seller may be capable of managing their blocks of IPs efficiently, they may be unable to track the use of each internet address and ensure that it is used for legitimate purposes. As a result of that, a potential buyer may purchase blocklisted IPs that could be, practically, unusable.

At IPXO, we take IP reputation seriously. Our Abuse Prevention team performs daily checks to ensure that all IPs placed on the Marketplace are clean. Also, we screen our clients, both IP holders and lessees, thoroughly to guarantee that IPs are valid and safe to use in any network or infrastructure before they are added to the Marketplace. In short, IP address abuse observability is a priority for us.

To increase the security further, IPXO implements the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) that secures Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) routing and helps prevent IP hijacking. In other words, RPKI verifies that IPXO lessees pay only for valid IPs held by reliable holders.

Purchasing IPv4 addresses can be expensive and complicated. Why? For one, the IPv4 block transfer process is time-consuming, which may discourage buyers from buying IPv4 addresses if they want to scale their business fast. Furthermore, IP sellers usually transfer IPs to the highest bidder. Therefore, high prices may encourage a small or medium-sized company to search for other solutions.

The IPXO Marketplace offers affordable IPv4 block leasing for clients that need them. Small and medium-sized companies/organizations can find IPs from all RIRs, search for resources by price, as well as negotiate custom lease conditions. For example, many companies need to lease resources without a long-term commitment. Most importantly, IP lessees can lease instantly without having to worry whether or not the resources are reputable.

The price per a single IPv4 address for buyers can be anywhere from $45 to $60 on average. However, this price does not include the additional fees that come with transferring and maintaining IP addresses. For example, the transfer costs start at $500 at the American Registry for Internet Numbers. If you use a broker to handle the purchase and the transfer process, you must pay a fee as well. And once IPs are in your possession, you may need to hire a professional or train your own in-house team to manage your newly acquired resource.

IP address brokers set up auctions to purchase and sell IPv4 addresses. A direct transaction between a seller and a buyer might also be possible; however, that is rare. Most buyers rely on intermediaries to connect clients (seller and buyer), manage the transfer process (including the pre approval process) and oversee the actual purchase of the asset. Brokers have actively participated in the IP transfer since 2011 when the Internet Assigned Number Authority officially allocated its last resources to Regional Internet Registries.

Buying IP addresses is not the only option. It is also possible to join a waiting list maintained by a RIR and wait for an allocation from the reclaimed IPv4 space. Note that to join a waiting list, clients must undergo pre-approval checks and pay a yearly membership fee. RIRs also only allocate small blocks of IPs, and members/clients must wait around a year to get to the top of the list. IP leasing, on the other hand, offers an opportunity to acquire and provision IP resources instantly. Furthermore, lessees can save on IP management services that can come packaged with the lease service. 041b061a72
