What Is a Reservation ID and What Does Hidden Mean?

Learn what a reservation ID is and how to hide your subnet from the IPXO Marketplace.

Hide from Marketplace is an IPXO Marketplace feature that allows the IP owner to hide their subnet(s) from the market and create a reservation ID. The reservation ID allows leasing the subnet directly to the chosen client.

How to hide the subnet from the Marketplace

First, log in to the IPXO Portal and navigate to My Resources (IPAM) -> My Monetized IPs.

Find the subnet you wish to hide from the Marketplace, click the three dots on the right and then click Subnet Details.

IMPORTANT: The subnet cannot be currently leased. To demonstrate, we use a /20 subnet that has 0/4096 leased IPs.

Once you click Next, you can update the pricing of the subnet. To finalize, click Save, and you will move to the subnet’s Overview page. Under Subnet setup on the right, you can find the Reservation ID.

At this point, your subnet is hidden from the Marketplace and is visible only to you and those you share your Reservation ID with.

How to use the Reservation ID

If an IP holder shares a reservation ID with you, you can find a subnet that is otherwise not visible on the Marketplace.

First, log in to the IPXO Portal and click Marketplace in the menu at the top.

In the Search menu, click Advanced filters. Now, paste your reservation ID into the Reservation ID field and click Search.
