Enable IPv6 for your IPv4 website with IPv6Proxy.nl

proxy ipv6
So you have a website but your hoster or network provider doesnt support IPv6 (or its still in the “this year phase”) but you would like to offer IPv6 connectivity for your visitors.

IPv6Proxy.nl offers you a way to do this.. and its free! Just sign up with your domain name, add AAAA (quad A) records to your DNS server and you are ready to go!

A couple days ago we reported that a dutch weblog GeenStijl had IPv6 connectivity. Well they use the exact same system, and according to the guys over at Prolocation.net who maintain the Proxy, GeenStijl was the first of many more big sites to come that will run dualstack.

So, if you’ve a website called “www.example.com”, you should add the following DNS entry to the DNS zone of example.com:
“www.example.com AAAA 2a00:d00:ff:131:94:228:131:131”

So visit IPv6Proxy.nl add your domain name and start running your website dualstack!

Dutch weblog geenstijl.nl enables IPv6

geenstijlGeenStijl.nl is a Dutch blog founded in April 2003. Its trademark images are that of a female silhouette utilizing a chainsaw and that of a crown within a circle, both in a pinkish colour, although the crown in a circle is green with a black edge when it is embedded in online videos. In Dutch, the term “geen stijl” is used to describe an act by a person or organisation that lacks style.

GeenStijl often uses a provocative tone when referring to other internet sites and blogs. The blog attracts around 75,000 visitors each day, and counts as being one of the top 10 news sites of the Netherlands

After noticing yesterday that ‘geenstijl.nl’ also resolved to an IPv6 address, and not many hours later ‘www.geenstijl.nl’ also resolved to the same IPv6 address

$ host www.geenstijl.nl
www.geenstijl.nl has address
www.geenstijl.nl has IPv6 address 2a00:d00:ff:131:94:228:131:1

As far as i could tell the site is using a proxy to get the content from the IPv4 website using http://ipv6proxy.prolocation.net/ as a method of enabeling IPv6 connectivity.

According to the list on the http://ipv6proxy.prolocation.net/ There are several other related sites who now also have IPv6 connectivity:


Lets see this as an example that big sites can run dual stack without any problems.
