I see Google has
184.108.40.206 and CloudFlare has
220.127.116.11. How do I get myself a distinctive IP address? What's involved in acquiring something that has a pattern in it?
- Become a LIR (Local Internet Registry)
- Obtain and set up your AS (Autonomous System)
- Decide what address you'd like to use (e.g. 18.104.22.168)
- Find out who currently has it assigned:
whois 22.214.171.124. Ok, it's US army, try a different one:
whois 126.96.36.199- cool someone from Iran.
- Contact them and offer them loads of money for transferring the
188.8.131.52/24allocation to you.
- Propagate it from your AS and enjoy!
Alternative way: use your loads of money to buy the entire company that owns the block you like.
