Websites now being served over IPv6

IPv6 is the next generation of the Internet protocol. Ideally, it’s something you’ll never have to know about! The short version is that the current generation – IPv4 – doesn’t allow as many devices on the Internet as the world needs, and the only solution is an upgrade. The upgrade involves a lot of work! But it’s important work, to keep the world online, and to keep your email and websites accessible from all over the world.

Simba Hosting has supported IPv6-access to email and DNS services for a couple of years. Today, we’re rolling this out to websites too, so that websites are also available over IPv6. Few Internet connections in the UK are yet IPv6-ready (and it’s almost non-existent for home Internet connections), but as it becomes increasingly available/common, your website will be ready.
