ipv6

Post by squirrelof09 » Sat Aug 20, 2016 8:43 pm

Is NFO going to grant IPV6 addresses for their VDS and or Dedi's in the near future?

This is something that we're working on, but there are a lot of moving pieces to it (and very little demand, mostly because game servers still don't use IPv6). With so many high-priority items demanding my attention, the progression has been slow.

I'm interested in ipv6, as it was the only factor that stopped me from moving my VM's from other hosts to here. Normal non gaming ones.

I appreciate the continued feedback.

Some additional progress has been made, but we're not quite there yet.

We're still slowly working towards it. Our routers support it and the machines hosting our VDSes have all been updated to support it, but there are many tasks left to accomplish, including provisioning system development, upstream adjustments/support, control panel updates (for VDSes, machines, and webhosting DNS), management software updates on VDS machines, updates to webhosting machines, and DDoS mitigation system adjustments.

The current project in my focus is Let's Encrypt. It's a smaller one. After I finish with it, I will be proceeding with some of the next steps for IPv6. I will likely work to enable it for our shared webhosting in Seattle before expanding to other services, there and elsewhere, but I don't have the exact stages planned yet.

IPv6 support is (unfortunately) a significant project that will take dozens or hundreds of hours more work. Also (perhaps unfortunately, perhaps fortunately), it is not a high-demand item. But, it's something I very much want to finish, and preferably sooner rather than later.

Are we talking 2017 here, or it's not so sure that It will be available this year?

Thanks

Thanks for the update. Look forward to using it myself!

Perhaps, there is a demand for it and no one else is speaking up.

Just dropping a line to see if this is on the to do/to finish list?

It is still on the list of items to work on. It has surprisingly low demand -- IPv6 is taking a long time to catch on with the applications that matter most to our customers.
