Today we celebrated going live with IPV6 versions of many of our top rated sites. The work was done in advance of our participation in the IPV6 Launch Day. For the uninitiated, IPv6 Launch Day is the date where major sites will begin to have their websites publicly available in the new Internet numbering scheme and is currently set for June 6, 2012. As many of you likely know the IPv4 space which has served the Internet so well since its inception is running out of unique addresses. I am especially proud of the fact that we are the first of the largest Internet players to achieve this unique feat. In fact three of our sites occupy slots in the Top 25 Sites in the ranking including www.aol.com, www.engadget.com, and www.mapquest.com. As with all things there are some interesting caveats. For example – Google is IPv6 enabled for some ISPs, but not all. I am specifically highlighting global availability.
