The un-unthinkable has happened.

The world has finally run out of IP addresses!

The Internet connects a lot more than just computers nowadays. You’ve got things like smartphones, Xboxes, Blu-Ray players, stereo systems, even “marital aids” all chattin’ away out there in cyberspace all without a care in the world, and all of them sucking up valuable IP space.

It makes sense that all four billion IPs have now been claimed. In fact I’m surprised it hasn’t happened sooner!

Four billion really isn’t that large of a number if you think about it.

To solve this problem, IPv6 was created. It grows the number of available addresses from a measly four billion to… 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456
…that’s a long number – 282 decillion.

The good news? On the day that IPv4 addresses were exhausted DreamHost were able to flip a switch, and in so doing turned on support for IPv6 for all domains hosted with DreamHost!

IPv6 at DreamHost is not yet something that’s enabled by default for new domains, so you’ll need to add IPv6 addresses through DreamHost web panel for the domains you will host with DreamHost.

It’s free. It won’t break anything.
