For a lot of people looking to sell IPv4 or IP addresses, this may be their first (and last) IPv4 market transaction. Lacking experience, these sellers won’t know where to begin. We are here to help. If you are a first-time seller, or even if you’ve been through the transaction before, here are 5 helpful tips we can give you to get your IP addresses sold faster and safer.
5 Tips for Faster, Safer IP Transactions
- Know your buyer
In the IP transfer process, this can be a little more difficult than any other normal market. But it is still important to know what you’re selling, how much you’re selling, and who may be interested in your IP addresses. Would a large corporation be interested? Or if you have a smaller amount for sale, the buyer may be a smaller company or individual. Knowing this can help you in the negotiation process.
- Research the transfer process
Like we mentioned before, for most people looking to sell IPv4 this is their first time. This means that sellers may not be familiar with how the process works or understand everything needed. Our advice is to research the process as much as you can and have all necessary paperwork or information ready. If there are no big surprises during the IP transfer process it can help the transaction move quickly. As active brokers for over a decade now, we will make the path smooth and let you know what to expect at every step.
- Understand when to sell
Along with researching the transfer process, you will want to keep an eye on the IP address market and understand how the value of your IPv4 is changing. There is no fixed price for IPv4, and the demand and supply changes constantly. You will want to have some insight into the price and sell when the demand for IPv4 is high and the supply is low. This will help make sure you get the most money from your transaction. Having tracked supply, demand, and price daily since our participation in the first public IPv4 sale ever in 2011, we are well position to advice on the appropriate timing for a sale.

While these don’t change a lot, there could be something that pops up that makes it more difficult (or easier) to sell your IP addresses. Considering the global span of the market, there are a lot of venues for regulations to change.
