The final blocks of IPv4 addresses were allocated to the regional registries by ICANN yesterday.

Here are two videos of the historic event – the IPv4 era is over – long live IPv6!

And the press conference afterwards:

    What is the status of IPv6 hosting at Blacknight? The last post mentioning Blacknight progress indicated that you were running into issues with dns and your shared hosting backend.

    At present we do not offer IPv6 on our shared / VPS hosting.
    The control panel software currently does not support the creation of AAAA records or their management, nor does it support their integration into anything else.
    We have a full IPv6 network, so dedicated and colo clients can be given an IPv6 allocation to use. Several of our internal sites and those of our staff members are running on dual stack without any issues.
    Our own offices in both Carlow and Dublin are running IPv6 as well.
    Hopefully the software vendor will have implemented IPv6 before the end of this year and we will be able to offer it to everyone
    Thanks for your comment
