IPv6 Use Growing, But Only One Step In Adoption
Posted in: Domain Names at 28/11/2011 20:10
"Support for IPv6 has grown by almost 20 times in the past year by one measure, but most websites still can't be reached without IPv4, the current Internet Protocol, which is near running out of unclaimed addresses," reports IDG.
The report notes that "the number of subdomains under .com, .net and .org that support Internet Protocol version 6 increased by about 1,900 percent in the year leading up to October 2011, according to an automated sampling of subdomains by Measurement Factory."
"Last month, 25.4 percent of subdomains under .com, .net and .org supported IPv6, up from just 1.27 percent a year earlier. However, the long-awaited IPv6 future may not be as close as it sounds from that statistic."
