Hilco Streambank is pleased to announce the launch of IPv4Auctions.com, an online auction platform for IPv4 address blocks. IPv4Auctions.com will simplify the transaction process for IPv4 transfers by standardizing terms and conditions and bring much needed transparency to the market by allowing registered users to view real time pricing for address blocks.
“IPv4Auctions.com aims to solve two of the largest issues facing the IPv4 market: a lack of transparency and unnecessarily complex and time consuming sales processes,” said Amy Potter, Director at Hilco Streambank. “Users can skip the hassle of drawn-out negotiations with a simple online auction, and offer information for IPv4 address blocks. These are much needed additions to the IPv4 market. The simplified process of IPv4Auctions.com enables Hilco Streambank to offer smaller blocks of IPv4 address. This will greatly benefit small to mid-sized companies looking for IPv4 space.”
IPv4Auctions.com will list IPv4 address blocks in sizes from /24s up to /17s, registered in ARIN, APNIC and RIPE. The first auction begins February 17, 2014. Transfers facilitated through IPv4Auctions.com will be subject to Regional Internet Registry approval. Bidders are highly encouraged to apply for pre-approval with their local Regional Internet Registry prior to bidding.
Hilco Streambank is offering IPv4Auctions.com for small and medium sized IPv4 transaction as a complement to its IPv4 address brokering services. For those parties with larger or more complex needs, Hilco Streambank will continue brokering private transactions in all three regions.
