As the volume of devices and web sites now in use throughout the world continues to grow, the current addressing scheme known as IPv4 has run out of room.
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is a robust numbering system that provides far more IP addresses than IPv4.
- IPv4 offers 4,294,967,296 addresses
- IPv6 offers 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 addresses
Get your website ready for IPv6 so you can connect to the whole Internet, not just the old Internet.
With 4 billion connected devices worldwide, companies and consumers are leveraging online channels for content, commerce and communication.
As sites are more IPv6 enabled, you will be able to more easily share accross the entire Internet without IPv4 restrictions, reach new user communities connecting via IPv6-only, enhance your user experience with end-to-end connectivity, and produce better targeted content with more accurate analytics.
If you manage your own website, approach your IPv6 deployment step by step:
- Check your equipment and software
- Get educated
- Find out if your providers support IPv6
- Make an addressing plan
- Advertise in DNS
