Contrary to their announcement last week, Hetzner has now officially released the price for IPs: 1€/month. This applies to existing services too!

  • So.... Following OVH?

  • It's a realistic idea, IPv4 not being charged monthly would mean that you can have huge ipv4 pools without paying for it...

  • That's really BAD NEWS We have not received any email about it tho.

  • Seems pretty reasonable given what they were considering. Maybe the suggestion of up to €5 was just to soften the blow when they announced only €1.

    I love Laravel

  • 1E / IP / month seems to be the norm nowadays.

    @rds100 This won't affect anyone besides yearly VPS providers, but now everybody has at least a fair cut in the ipv4's

  • Much better than the 5€ people were saying before

    This is exactly what I thought to be honest :P

  • Anything above that would have made ppl go to OVH. The IPs are running out for europe, but not like that yet.

  • So are we looking at a crisis for LEB providers in hetzner? Feel bad for any providers caught in these situations where low profit turns into a loss.

    More or less all providers who didn't get their own IPs from RIPE / ARIN / APNIC or didn't get any long term written contracts about fixed IP costs with their datacenters will be screwed sooner or later.

    Indeed. Lets all push IPv6 more.

    Even a crisis at OVH's Kimsufi line .. maximum IP allocation per dedi ..

    Its pretty much everything in these two dc's.

    I'm hoping this won't be the case in the US where IPv4 costs are already typically so high with rented equipment, which is what we do because the profits are smaller but more predictable starting out.

    ARIN will run out of IPs sooner or later. The same that is happening in Europe now will happen in USA. If you aren't an ARIN member already, consider becoming one NOW before it's too late.

    In Europe even if you decide to shell out the money now and become a LIR now the most you can get out of RIPE would be a /22 (1024 IPs) and that's all.

    US IPv4 is still cheap, there is a few companies who will give you a /16 at 0.25/ip monthly w/o justification.

    My problem is that the entire process and requirements confuse me to no end. Nothing about running a server prepares you for their website. I'm not scared to say it...I can make a CPU run smooth any day, but put me in front of the ARIN website and I'll cry like a baby.

  • @ChrisK said: a /16 at 0.25/ip monthly

    That's $16k / month or about $200k / year? Getting them directly from ARIN would be cheaper :)

  • @jarland hey, at least you are a native English speaker :) Imagine my frustration when i am trying to read and interpret the ToS of big companies i have to work with (paypal, etc.)

  • There are still LIRs in EU which offer fairly cheap IPs... Hopefully I will get a contract signed at the begining of Dec.

  • @rds100 that's exactly why I said if you don't have justification you can get them for that price. Not everyone has justification for 65k ips.

    I know a guy who can help you if you want to start the process with ARIN.

    Definitely interested in it, hook me up brother :)

  • @ChrisK for $200k you could find someone to invent very good justifications for you :)

  • you can't just go to ARIN and apply for a /16 first allocation

  • Can ARIN subnets be announced by European networks? Or are they only limited for use in the US?

  • @George_Fusioned said: Can ARIN subnets be announced by European networks?

    Can, however it is a little complicated due to many european ISPs filtering prefixes based on route objects from the RIPE database. But yes, it can and does work. The problem would be getting the subnets in the first place, i think you as an European can't just go to ARIN and tell them "give me IPs". You need to have a registered company somehwere in the region ARIN is serving probably.

    FDC use ARIN subnets in Czech (Zlin DC).

    I think it may become a way of doing business :) The higher the prices go, the more incentives, however, the prices can go just to a point, when will be 10 Euros a piece, many ppl will consider IPv6.

    Well considering RIPE can give a LIR only a /22 now, maybe creating a US LLC to register with ARIN is a one way road... (or as @Maounique mentioned, the move to IPv6 would be another way)

  • So, what are the legal requirements to form a US company? Can a foreign citizen or foreign company own a US company? Or one needs to have a US SSN?

  • Hetzner is planning from 2 to 5 Euros per IPv4 address. 1 Euro is nothing.

    @qhoster Hetzner will charge €1/IP after all

    @rds100 anyone can form a US company and it's very easy too. Setting up a bank account is the difficult part (can't be done without a SSN so you need a member of the company living in the US).

  • We are migrating ~150 containers from hetzner at the moment, they simply are not meeting our needs hardware and network wise aswell as support. We could eat the IPv4 cost's but it makes sense to move to our new loc more. <3 GlobalSwitch
