Guess it’s only a matter of time before hosting providers start migrating (ie: when ICANN gets it going smoothly).
Though I’m a little confused on the hardware portion of it, because just about every one of my computers even my 4 year old PC once I’ve installed the IPv6 protocal on the machine ( my macbook already had it installed ), they could be either self-assigned an IPv6 address or could obtain it via DHCP (though on the other hand, I don’t know of any home-based routers that has IPv6 supported in it’s firmware).
I mean I guess it’s technically really all software… but its also a matter of getting that software onto the hardware.
I just know that due to the much wider range of available addresses with IPv6 you’d think it would actually be a quite welcoming version particularly for hosting providers and internet providers.
PS: One thing is for certain… won’t be nearly as easy to remember all your machines addresses locally off the top of your head. Hehe, tho could use IPv4 locally and IPv6 remotely
