The unfortunate end of available IPv4 addresses has made the demand for them skyrocket, unsurprisingly. People sprint to sell IPv4 addresses they have and don’t use because of the high prices others are willing to pay. The more years pass, and the higher the prices go for a single IPv4 address, the more complicated the market becomes. With high demand, there are bound to be many sneaky parties trying to take advantage of the people in this exchange market in many ways just to get the money.
This is the most basic but most important reason to contact an IP broker if selling or buying IPv4 addresses is something you are interested in doing. With the number of rules in place, the process of exchanging IPv4 addresses is done safely. It would benefit you more to have someone on your side who is knowledgeable of those rules. Here are more reasons why an IP broker is essential in this market.
Their big network
A seasoned IP broker will, more often than not, have an extensive network filled with clients who are eager to buy or sell their IPv4 addresses. Doing this process on your own will have you spending too much time finding a trustworthy and willing party to exchange IPv4 addresses with you. With the network of your IP broker, you can find someone quickly, and you will feel more at ease as most of the clients of the IP broker would most likely be clients that have been through the process with the IP broker before.
As mentioned before, with an IP broker, you will be put more at ease. They have more experience than you in being in this market, and they know all the rules. The rules and regulations for selling or buying IPv4 addresses are very strict. One slip-up and you can get into a lot of trouble. The trouble may not always be legal, either. You can also get into monetary troubles if you sell you end up selling IPv4 to the wrong person.
IP brokers don’t only get you prospects that would like to buy or sell IPv4 and protect you from risks, but they also can get you decent deals. If you are buying IPv4 addresses, you are probably worried about the out-of-this-world prices (and not in a good way). With an IP broker by your side, you can have some wiggle room with the price you pay. It can sometimes work in your favor.
