I agree with you, but it is not popular like IPv4 now. Google do not "spidering" sites over IPv6 as far as i know, or if they doing this, well... sites are not indexing with IPv4 sites.

Next example of google and IPv6. They did not switch the google.com site to IPv6 yet. You can reach the google over IPv6 at ipv6.google.com but.. they should do it like some DNS providers did.

Example:
Code:
Mac5-2:~ dzimi$ host dns.atman.pl
dns.atman.pl has address 85.232.226.102
dns.atman.pl has IPv6 address 2001:1a68::55e8:e266
Google here:
Code:
iMac5-2:~ dzimi$ host google.com
google.com has address 74.125.67.100
google.com has address 209.85.171.100
google.com has address 74.125.45.100
google.com mail is handled by 10 smtp3.google.com.
google.com mail is handled by 10 smtp4.google.com.
google.com mail is handled by 10 smtp1.google.com.
google.com mail is handled by 10 smtp2.google.com.
ipv6.google.com:
Code:
iMac5-2:~ dzimi$ host ipv6.google.com
ipv6.google.com is an alias for ipv6.l.google.com.
ipv6.l.google.com has IPv6 address 2001:4860:a003::68
I really don't know for what they are waiting for...

I can visit IPv6 websites from virgin media. But as far as I know im not handed out an IPv6 address ... some translation midpipe but it works.

@Myatu: You have to talk with your LIR or RIR. They can assign the PI-type block for you... right now it's might be very very hard to do, because the IPv4 assignment is going to close down soon.. sad but true. It's time to switch to the IPv6, but... google do not switch to v6, they do not indexing pages over v6 network, etc, etc, etc...; ISPs (broadband internet, telecoms, etc) do not giving the IPv6 for the end users yet, etc and at the end of my conclusion: many network services do not support IPv6 yet, or if they do, it's very hard to setup for the normal user...

@derchris: "Provider Independent" - he wants to use his current block at OVH. Thank for the answer on the AS, by the way

@dzimi83: I'm trying to get the RIPE block through OVH. I don't own my own block - yet

I am waiting with my PI-type IP address space to announce like the regular failover IP from 7 months... and no one take care..
So if you have your own RIPE block, take the housing service from ovh.fr site. Guys will announce your PI-type IP RIPE block as soon as possible. Then try to route it to your dedicated servers manually.

The AS will be from OVH

Question... If I were to order a RIPE IP block, can you route them to any of your dedicated servers like with the regular failover IP addresses? And is that the same SOAP interface that can be used for both RIPE and OVH IPs? It's time to leverage that stuff

Oops, forgot. What AS do you get with RIPE blocks? Your own or OVH's?
