Why leasing IPv4 addresses is more convenient than buying

For most companies, the availability of public IPv4 addresses is restricted due to an IPv4 address shortage. IPv4 has approximately 4.3 billion unique address combinations and that is not enough. Back in the day, no one expected the internet to expand as it did. Nowadays almost everyone has a computer, smartphone, smartwatch or drone and they all require IP addresses. A solution, IPv6 addresses, is on the way but unfortunately, we are not there yet. 

The benefits of leasing

Internet service providers (ISPs) and private companies that have purchased blocks of IP addresses can lease them to individuals or other companies. In this way, smaller businesses can have access to IPv4 addresses whenever they need them. This is much more convenient than buying IPv4 addresses, which is very time-consuming and complicated, especially when there is a lack of knowledge. Also, the business doesn’t have to worry about selling the IPv4 addresses when they are no longer necessary, for example when migrating to IPv6. If needed, IP addresses can be leased indefinitely. 

One of the biggest benefits is that leasing IPv4 addresses is cost-efficiency. Instead of buying an IPv4 block against high rates, businesses can lease the batch they need in order to fix their network capacity problems and only pay a specific price per month.
