Major Internet service providers (ISPs), home networking equipment manufacturers, and web companies around the world are coming together to permanently
enable IPv6 for their products and services by 6 June 2012.
Organized by the Internet Society, and building on the successful one-day World IPv6
Day event held on 8 June 2011, World IPv6 Launch represents a major milestone in the global deployment of IPv6. As the successor to the current Internet Protocol, IPv4, IPv6 is critical to the Internet's continued growth as
a platform for innovation and economic development.
The difficulty in obtaining IPv4 addresses is a growing concern worldwide, with 95% of all usable addresses already allocated. IPv6 provides nearly limitless address blocks, and will suit the needs of Internet addressing for
decades to come. We at HackThisSite know this problem all to well, as it becomes increasingly difficult to obtain IPv4 addresses for our additional services.
Acting in concert with Yahoo!, Google, Akamai, and many other Internet entities, HackThisSite intends to participate in the World IPv6 Launch event, slated for June 6th, 2012. In doing so, HackThisSite will be adding AAAA
records to as many elements of its services as possible. In all likelyhood, this will be a seamless transition for most users, as their Internet connections may either not yet facilitate the use of IPv6 (and thus ignore AAAA
records), or will quietly connect users via our IPv6 addresses.
