We offer you IPv4 or IPv6 space for lease. In general, if you plan to rent the space for a long time, you should prefer long-term contracts (12 months or more) where we can ensure stable prices over the time.
Letter of Authorization – You will receive a LOA which gives you the written permission to (let) announce the subnet in BGP. However, this is not absolutely necessary – in fact, a LOA alone is the worst way to prove such an authorization because it can forged easily. Nevertheless it is still common practice in many countries. These days techniques such as RPKI should be used to prevent from unauthorized announcements.

IP Geolocation – It usually takes between two and eight weeks for well-known GeoIP databases such as MaxMind to update their according records when an announcement and/or RIR database change happened. Many services will especially rely on the country where the announcement comes from. While we will help you with that concern, you usually can request updates also by yourself after a few weeks.
Prices – The prices depend on the RIR where the subnet has been originally allocated from, the health (e.g. subnets which have been abused for spamming in the past may be less expensive due to the expense to remove blacklist records) and the contract type (mid or long term). As an example, IPv4 space from ARIN is much more expensive than from RIPE NCC at the moment, because the registry became absolutely exhausted in 2015.
