Go Daddy and IPv6
Not what you're looking for?
We want your feedback!
There has been a lot of talk around the Internet about the depletion of IPv4 addresses and the technology replacing them, IPv6. We already let you know there’s nothing to worry about for Go Daddy customers, but we wanted to give those who are more in-the-know detail about our IPv6 implementation strategy.
- Go Daddy already supports AAAA records, which are IPv6′s equivalent to IPv4′s A records that store your domain name’s IP addresses, starting way back in October of 2007.
- Since August 2008, we’ve also supported Glue records, which let you use your domain name as a nameserver with IPv6.
- ARIN, RIPE, and APNIC have each assigned us a /32 (a large range of IPv6 addresses). To be exact, each /32 is 79 nonillion (7.9×1028) IP addresses, so having a “large range” is a bit of an understatement.
- All of our data centers have redundant IPv6 transit from multiple providers now. This means we support IPV6 today, even though we haven’t enabled it on our customer-facing servers yet.
There’s more coming soon, too. We’ll have DNS running a dual stack (that’s simultaneous IPv4 and IPv6 support). We’ll have IPv6 on our Dedicated, Virtual Dedicated, and Fourth-Generation Web Hosting (4GH™). All of our websites and products will use it. This is just the beginning. We want to assure you that we’re on top of it, and doing everything we can to time our implementation just right to provide you with the IPv6 services you need without a hassle.
