  • What is IPv6?

    WordPress Hosting on SSD Servers
    IPv6 is a new version of the protocol which is having the same functionality like IPv4, however, same limitations of IPv4 are removed from this version. It is not totally different from IPv4: If you have a knowledge of IPv4 then it will help you to learn about this new version when you deploy IPv6.

    There are five major areas on which you can differentiate IPv6 and IPv4:

    1. Addressing and routing
    2. Security.
    3. Network address translation.
    4. Administrative workload.
    5. Support for mobile devices.

    IPv6 feature is having latest versions of Linux. However, in some cases you will need to enable this feature on your own.

    There are little more than Four Billion reasons why IPv6 is important, and they are all running out. IPv4 (the standard quad/octet thing you are used to) has about 4 billion available addresses. and they are running short. IPV6 has many many more. IPv6 will become the standard addressing method starting about midway through 2011. You will want your computer to be able to get online, so you will want IPV6 support.

      IPv6 is designed to solve the problems of IPv4. It does so by creating a new version of the protocol which serves the function of IPv4, but without the same limitations of IPv4. IPv6 is not totally different from IPv4

        Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the next-generation Internet Protocol version designated as the successor to IPv4, the first implementation used in the Internet that is still in dominant use currently[update]. It is an Internet Layer protocol for packet-switched internet works. The main driving force for the redesign of Internet Protocol is the foreseeable IPv4 address exhaustion. IPv6 was defined in December 1998 by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) with the publication of an Internet standard specification, RFC 2460.

          Using a technique called tunnelling, IPv6 packets are put within IPv4 headers to pass through networks without a problem. First, addresses are transformed from IPv4 to IPv6 by adding leading zeroes, and then the IPv6 packet itself is inserted into the header area of an IPv4 packet. The data is then sent out and travels normally through existing infrastructure.
