Preparing the Subnet Before Placing It in the IPXO Marketplace (LACNIC)

Learn how to prepare your subnet before adding it to the IPXO Marketplace.

If you wish to add your LACNIC allocated subnet to the IPXO Marketplace, you need to prepare it accordingly. Follow these instructions to learn how to prepare the subnet before placing it in the Marketplace. 

Step 1: Check your subnet’s status  

Log in to your MiLACNIC account.

You need to check your subnet’s WHOIS information to find the details about your subnet status. Use the Adding Subnets to IPXO From LACNIC guide to find the list of statuses accepted in the IPXO Marketplace.  

To find the details about the inetnum, use the MiLACNIC Query service. Enter the subnet into the search field and click SEARCH.  

To demonstrate, we use the subnet 191.96.44.0/23.

Step 2: Set the organization’s owner-c email

To set the organization’s owner-c (owner contact) is mandatory, as this is where you will receive a subnet ownership confirmation email to verify the subnet.  

You can read the How To Set Your Organization’s Contact in LACNIC guide to set the contact right.

Step 3: Reallocate your network resource to IPXO 

In your account’s dashboard on the left, click IP/ASN Resources -> Manage

Select the subnet you want to reallocate under IP by LACNIC and then click the Sub-Assign button.

Click Next under Basic Method, enter the range you want to reallocate to IPXO in the Basic Sub-Assignment Panel and click Add. Once you select one or more ranges, click Next

To demonstrate, we reallocate 179.61.129.0/24.

Double-check if you have selected the range you want to reallocate and if the Receiving Organization (BZ-IPLT2-LACNIC) is correct. If everything looks good, click Confirm to complete reallocation to IPXO.
