What is IPv6?

Back to Help

IPv6 is the successor of IPv4 and necessary because the IPv4 space runs out of address numbers. With the increasing amount of computers and devices accessing the Internet, the current IPv4 address zone runs slowly out of available IP addresses. The new IPv6 consists of 6 instead of only 4 blocks of numbers and will solve the current problem of IP address shortage.
