IPv6 enabled for new sites by default (and eventually for older sites, too)

We’ve supported IPv6 on customer websites for many years, but it didn’t default to “on”: customers had to explicitly enable it in our account management control panel.

Starting today, IPv6 is on by default for all new accounts signed up with us (although you can turn it off if you want).

In addition, we’re beginning a gradual process of slowly enabling IPv6 for existing sites if they haven’t chosen to disable it. If you don’t want IPv6 to be enabled for your site in the future, you should use our control panel to disable it.

World IPv6 Day

World IPv6 Day is now in progress (it started at midnight UTC, which was 5:00 PM Pacific time). For the next 24 hours, many sites on the Internet, including our own www.tigertech.net, are fully IPv6-enabled.

If you have trouble connecting to www.tigertech.net, check other sites like Google, Yahoo and Bing. If you have problems with any of those, you should test your IPv6 connection and notify your ISP or network administrator about any problems.

For more information about IPv6 (and how sites hosted with us can participate), see our previous post: Now We Are Six: IPv6 support.
