Why should I rent an IPv4 network?

Many IPs, organizations, and other entities that currently get IP addresses from organizations like ARIN or RIPE will be interested in renting IPv4 addresses when they become available for lease. New networks are also likely to emerge internationally—primarily in Germany, which has already begun preparing a leasing market; time will tell whether both organizations and individuals embrace it outside of Germany. If you’re planning on launching a new network and want to quickly gain access to a large block of IP addresses (for instance, if you’re a data center company), then your best bet is probably going to be renting them on an international level.

From a cost perspective, leasing IP addresses is often cheaper than buying a large block of static IP addresses. Organizations that rely on public Internet backbones for their business operations may also gain access to new address blocks through service providers and regional network operators. Most importantly, moving away from static leases towards dynamic pooling may also help ensure that we don’t run out of IPv4 addresses in five years! When you lease an address, it becomes part of a pool that your ISP or provider can assign to different devices at different times, preventing anyone particular device from consuming too many individual IP addresses. ISPs could even use lease pools for everyday Internet users – if you rent a static IP address today, you probably have hundreds of unused addresses.
