World IPv6 Day: Update

On June 8 the websites listed here will offer their content over IPv6.

The goal of World IPv6 Day is to motivate organizations across the industry – Internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies – to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition as IPv4 addresses run out.

The following websites have joined the (growing) list of company’s that will participate in the World IPv6 day:

  • 2020Media
  • Vonage
  • sapo.pt
  • Mercury Z
  • Outpost10f
  • Public Interest Registry
  • Sesame Workshop
  • Arces
  • Poll Result: Would you pay extra for IPv6 support in hardware/software?

    Your awnser: No
    My awnser: Maybe, But that depends on the kind of support. Almost 46.04% (of which 28.5% says Yes) will ‘Maybe’ pay for support when needed. Thats just a little less then all the Nay-sayers.

    If there is enough demand for IPv6 support in a product a lot of people are willing to pay to get what they need!

    World IPv6 Day: Bing joins forces

    On June 8, Microsoft will enable world-wide IPv6 connectivity to Bing.com, for the purposes of a one-day test. Consumers with IPv6 Internet capabilities will automatically access this new method of connectivity. This necessitates both a device that supports IPv6 (like a Windows 7 PC), and support from your Internet provider.

    IPv4 traffic will continue to connect to Bing without any change. In fact, most Bing users won’t even notice that this transition is occurring.

    IRC Network Gamesurge reachable via IPv6

    Did you know that the IRC network GameSurge was reachable over IPv6?

    You can now chat to your game mates over IRC using IPv6 on one of the following hostnames:

  • ipv6.gamesurge.net
  • irc.ipv6.gamesurge.net
  •  

    An AAAA record for irc.gamesurge.net (i.e. IPv6 via irc.gamesurge.net if your client/os/connection support it) might be added in the future when services over IPv6 are stable.
