The necessity of IPv6 comes from the dwindling supply of IPv4 addresses. The Asia Pacific region has been the first to experience this fallout, as IPv4 address space in this area has completely run out, with America and Europe following close behind. The new version contains more than 340 trillion addresses; this is a number that will more than satisfy the continued growth rate of network connections into the foreseeable future. However, while IPv6 vastly improves the internet by providing advanced network address configurations, it is not enormously different from IPv4. Network renumbering and stateless address configuration streamlines the process of converting, so website operators do not need to be concerned with making a confusing, difficult transition.
The next generation of Internet Protocol was created to help support the global internet, which has grown at an exponential rate. Colocation America and other sponsors of the World IPv6 Launch Day have made it their mission not only to continue to provide uninterrupted internet connection to billions of users, but also to support billions of people worldwide who do not yet have access to the internet. It is with this goal in mind that Colocation America continues to offer IPv6 as a solution for website operators worldwide.
