What We Do

IPv4.Global facilitates the sale and transfer of IP addresses from an organization that no longer needs their IP addresses to one that does, monetizing hidden assets the company may not even be aware exist.

Internet Protocol (IP) is a set of rules for addressing and routing data so it can travel through networks and arrive at its intended destination. Every internet-connected device has a unique IP address. In the early development of the internet, the design of the version still most widely used today – called IPv4 – included 4.3 billion addresses.

The combination of growing demand and a finite number of IPv4 addresses has increased their market value. They have become the most widely-held, highly-valued hidden assets in the world.

We work with customers to buy and sell IP blocks, regardless of size, and have completed more transfers than any other provider in the world.

Who We Are

IPv4.Global is the leading IP address marketplace in the world. Our transparent, online marketplace has become the definitive industry benchmark for IPv4 transactions and transfers.

We help organizations monetize hidden assets they often don’t know they have. Our experienced, trusted team coupled with our transparent, industry-leading data has made us the number one marketplace in the world for buying and selling blocks of IP addresses, no matter the size.

How We Do It

IPv4.Global offers multiple solutions designed to meet the unique needs of IPv4 buyers and sellers of every size. A division of Hilco Global, we are the only IPv4 marketplace backed by a large financial organization, which affords financial flexibility for buyers and sellers.


IPv4.Global is the only IPV4 marketplace with transparent pricing. We disclose and publicly share pricing for every transaction managed through our online marketplace (not including private transactions).


IPv4.Global has completed more IPv4 transfers than any other broker and offers the largest inventory. Our dedicated transfer specialists help walk customers through IP transfers – whether it’s their first time or their fiftieth – to ensure an easy and efficient process.


IPv4.Global has experience with every Regional Internet Registry (RIR) and has more than 6,000 registered and approved buyers and sellers on our marketplace and we continue to be the only marketplace showing historical pricing.
