In the past few decades, the online world has grown in an astounding pace. The current Internet addressing system, Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4), which uses 32-bit (four-byte) addresses and supports approximately 4 billion unique IP addresses, is running out of space. As of January 4th there was less than 3% of address space available. To continue providing support to an increasing number of connections, a new Internet addressing system, Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6), is being rolled out to networks worldwide.
As a leader in Managed DNS, No-IP is making great strides to ensure our v6 users are well-supported during this transition. We have already implemented the IPv6 technology on one of our anycast name server clouds with plans to roll-out additional IPv6 support capabilities on all networks throughout 2011. Our team is dedicated to being at the forefront of this industry-wide transition, and strive to support our users with 100% uptime throughout the use of IPv6 and into future versions of internet protocol.
