Since 2014, BAEHOST has been a pioneer in Argentina in providing IPv6 addresses, version 6 of the Internet Protocol that replaces the old version 4 (IPv4) that has only 32 bits of addresses and provides a global theoretical space of 2 ^ 32 Approximately four billion) of unique network allocations. In contrast, IPv6 has a 128-bit address space, allowing you 2 ^ 128 network mappings (340.282.366.920.938.463.463.374.607.431.768.211.456).
Because our goal is the momentum of this new technology, all our customers of Cloud servers, Dedicated and Virtual Datacenter have been incorporated into our normalization and IPv6 adoption policy. This includes assigning a / 64 IPv6 block to each client at no additional cost, which provides a block of 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 (18 quintillones) of IPv6 addresses to allocate to their servers. As you can see, it is practically inexhaustible. IPv6 represents perhaps the most important change in the history of the Internet, since it is necessary for the network of networks to continue to develop in a secure and stable.
The key factor in designing and developing IPv6 was the expansion of the address space available on the Internet. This allows billions of new devices (tablets, mobile phones and Smart TVs, among others), new users and "always-connected" technologies (xDSL, cable, Ethernet and fiber in the home, wireless networks, etc.) to be connected.
The main advantages of IPv6 are:
- Practically unlimited address space.
- Enhanced security because it supports encryption of information and authentication of the sender.
- Allows you to automatically configure any device that connects to a network.
- It supports the exponential growth of connected devices, which generates advances in mobile Internet and Internet of Things (IoT).
Our Web Hosting platform publishes your website, DNS and email with traditional IPv4 and IPv6 natively being the first provider in Argentina to provide Web Hosting in IPv6.
If you are a user of IPv6 addresses or wish to incorporate them into Cloud, Dedicated and / or Virtual Datacenter servers and benefit from this update - which is free of charge - you should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inform yourself and coordinate the allocation /64 IPv6.
