Sherman Oaks, CA, United States, 2011/06/08 - Webair.com deploys IPv6 into their Managed Hosting Platform and offers content network-wide to clients via IPv6 in celebration of World IPv6 Day.
Webair hosting is enhancing their top tier Cloud Computing services by announcing the successful integration of IPv6 support throughout their global network. The company has already allocated many IPv6 addresses for clients utilizing the newest Internet protocol and is participating in World IPv6 Day on June 8, 2011, making sure their customers are ready for the future of Internet Protocol Addresses.
Webair is taking this proactive approach in becoming one of the first leading hosting companies to integrate IPv6 support into their managed hosting platform, control panels, and global network. To celebrate this achievement, Webair is taking part in World IPv6 day along with several other leading technology companies that have expressed a vested interest in the continued development of online protocols.
Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Akamai and Webair will be amongst some of the major organizations that will offer their content over the new IPv6 network for a 24-hour “test flight.” The goal of this day is to motivate organizations across the industry – Internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies – to prepare services or support for IPv6 and ensure a successful transition from the older IPv4 addresses.
"Webair has always been an early adopter of the most modern technological advancements available because that is a part of how our clients gain a competitive advantage," said Michael C. Orza, President of Webair. “Our integration of IPv6 allows customers increased addressing capacity, more flexible security, ability to expand infrastructure and accelerate business. We are proud to be among those who took this challenge in delivering support for customers seeking to be in full compliance with the new protocol architecture.”
IPv6 is the newest Internet Protocol available and has become a priority of IT professionals who understand the rapid pace of internet evolution. When IPv4 was first announced, supporting as many as 4.5 Billion usable IP addresses, many believed that would be enough to last. Just a short while later, all of the available IPv4 addresses are being put to use, necessitating the deployment of a new IPv6 protocol that brings 340 undecillion addresses into the pool of available IPs.
Website owners interested in protecting their digital properties are encouraged to contact Webair.com for information regarding the transition to IPv6. New next generation IP addresses are available now and Webair will assist you with implementing this technology today.
