How To Split Subnets

The IP Address Market platform has implemented a new feature related to the BGP routing protocol. This feature allows splitting your subnets into smaller parts.

Subnets that are equal to or larger than /24 can be migrated to other Heficed server locations. Smaller subnets, on the other hand, can only be used in the same location and cannot be migrated.

Follow these steps to learn how to split your subnet.

1. Log in to the Terminal and go to IP Address Market > IPAM.

2. Identify the subnet that you wish to split, click the vertical ellipsis icon and click Split.

NOTE: Your subnet will be split using the so-called “tree structure.”
