TechSansar.com is IPv6 compatible, we have IPv6 alternate website at http://ipv6.techsansar.com/ and you can get one from CloudFlare. Here is why you should learn about IPv4 versus IPv6, and get one for you, this way you are supporting the World IPv6 Launch day as well.
The IPv4 protocol was designed in the 1970s. It was built to accommodate about 4 billion devices connecting to the network. That seemed like a lot at the time, but the explosive growth of the Internet means we’re closing in on that number. In order to grow, a new protocol was created: IPv6.
Unfortunately, the IPv4 and IPv6 networks are incompatible. Unless you have a gateway of some kind, if you’re on one you can’t visit websites on the other. And, even more unfortunately, the gateway solutions typically are hardware-based and cost tens of thousands of dollars per website to deploy. This means that most the world’s websites are unavailable for the 1% of the Internet that is already using IPv6. And the percentage of users on IPv6 is only going to grow. – from Cloudflare.com
