In a move to enhance its hosting services, ServerPronto, a provider of dedicated servers and cloud hosting solutions, has integrated IPv6 support across its global network.
As IPv6 is the next generation Internet Protocol (IP) address standard that is supplementing and will eventually replace IPv4, the protocol most Internet services use today, ServerPronto has prepared its network for the future of Internet Protocol addresses.
“We added IPv6 support because our customers asked for it, and we want to provide all the network advantages available in the industry,” said Chris Kurzweg, CEO of ServerPronto. “By adding IPv6 support, our customers can supplement existing IPv4 to drive more efficient routing today as they prepare for the future.”
IPv4 is running out of space
“We are at the stage in IPv6 deployment where it’s time for major web hosting providers to make the technology available for customers,” Kurzweg added. “ServerPronto is making native IPv6, which is fully capable of offering seamless access to the Internet, available for all customers.”
IPv4 has approximately 4billion IP addresses. The explosion in the number of people, devices, and web services on the Internet means that IPv4 is running out of space. IPv6, the next-generation Internet protocol which provides more than 340 trillion, trillion, trillion addresses, will connect the billions of people not connected today.
