We’ve reached the end of a year (and a decade!), and we want to thank you for all you’ve done to support our community this year. It’s been a productive and fun 2019. We traveled to Barbados and Austin, TX for our Public Policy and Members Meetings, started new initiatives like the ARIN Community Grant Program, launched a new arin.net, held our first training webinars, and so much more.
We wanted to share a few highlights from TeamARIN this year, and would like to thank all the authors who contributed to the blog in 2019.
Here’s a look at the most popular blogs from this year!

- Why is IPv6 Faster? – Why is IPv6 faster than IPv4? Lee Howard, founder of Retevia, explores this question and shares his findings following his recent presentation at NANOG 76. He also provides detailed instructions for how to enable IPv6 on your website based on your web host.
- Microsoft Works Toward IPv6-only Single Stack Network – Veronika McKillop, Network Architect for Microsoft CSEO, explains why Microsoft decided to make the move to an IPv6-only internal network and offers her advice for those looking to do the same.
