Are You Prepared for IPv6? Relax, you probably are – you just don’t know it. Even though this might sound like the latest pandemic, surviving IPv6 won’t require a single inoculation or even a booster shot. Why are we even talking about IPv6? If you haven’t heard, the last bundle of web addresses was doled out just the other day. Before you panic, the solution, IPv6, is already installed on most computer systems and patiently waiting for activation.

To ease your confusion and increase your comfort level, here’s a little more information about this transition:

1. What is IPv6 Anyway?

2. What Happened with the Old System?

3. How Did We Burn Through 4.3 Billion Addresses?

4. How Many Addresses Does IPv6 Allow?

5. How is IPv6 Different from IPv4?

6. What Does This Mean for My Website?
