IPv6 launch day!

Today is World IPv6 Launch Day, when many ISP’s, major websites, and device manufacturers are starting to add IPv6 support. Why is this important? With our current IP setup, ip addresses look like this: 123.45.678.9. These addresses can only store up to 4 billion addresses. We have already exceeded that limit with all our different devices. This new standard can hold significantly more addresses, up to¬†340,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (a ton). Unfortunately, my website won’t see IPv6 support too soon thanks to the fact that my ISP doesn’t have support for IPv6 yet and my current router is IPv4 only. I hope to add my AAAA record as soon as possible, though!
