When you look around, you will see people using various devices to communicate with each other and with the advent of IoT (Internet of things), devices use the IoT protocol stack or IPv4 and IPv6 dual-stack to communicate with each other. And for all this, we need the internet obviously!!!!
Since the internet has exploded, IPv6 is slowly gaining pace, yet IPv4 use is still in dominance. But, going forward we need a unified solution when IPv4 and IPv6 work together at least up until IPv6 is the only internet protocol in use and that is where IPv4 and IPv6 dual-stack come into the picture.
What does IPv4 and IPv6 dual-stack mean?
IPv4 and IPv6 dual-stack is a dual-stack network that is like a temporary bridge (temporary because eventually, IPv6 will be the only IP version to be used in the future) between IPv4 and IPv6.
In this kind of network, every device, including server, switch, router and firewall which are connected to the internet using an ISP’s network will have a dual-stack configuration where both IPv4 and IPv6 can be used for connectivity. This dual-stack technology lets the ISP process simultaneous traffic from IPv4 and IPv6.
Is it time your website needs a transition to IPv6 or stay with IPv4?
A positive YES to move to IPv6!! It is high-time your website needs to adopt IPv6 whether your ISP has done or not yet because they will eventually will. If you want to stay ahead of your competitors online, and also stay connected with customers (avoid slower loading website) who are already using IPv6, it is extremely important that you choose the next-generation IPv6.
Ok, now you are ready to move to IPv6, but how would you do that?
