IP addresses are loaned to Verio from the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) such as ARIN and RIPE. In turn, Verio lends those IP addresses to our customers for use while connected to the Verio network. The size of the IP address loan varies and is solely based on the continually demonstrated and documented need of the customer.
